Does the military action the U.S. is contemplating against Iraq meet the standards of a just war?

Our Lord Jesus is the son of God, who as professional carpenter, required corporal strength. He was a man of great moral integrity and a strong will, who dified the entrenched burocracy, who run the money changers out of the temple. He was a corageous fighter, who fought for peace and justice, and who GAVE his life for us. Had he
been a coward he would have apologized to the Pharisees and others, and probably would have been rewarded with a confi, burocratic job. He did not accept "peace" at any cost, or peace without justice; a POLITICAL view held by misguided lay persons and far too many clerics. Our soldiers, firefighters, policemens, medics, MILITARY CHAPLAINS, others, who died performing their duties did not LOOSE their lives, they GAVE THEIR LIVES FOR ALL OF US. God bless you and give you light.
