Just War? Really? Hunh?
Anyway... He mentioned "Just War Theory", which I hadn't heard of recently... That lead me to Google for the specifics of "Just War Theory", and this summary.
Land seemed to think (or, at least, strongly implied) that the current Iraq activity met Just War Theory's criteria.
A just war can only be fought to redress a wrong suffered.
Unless you're one of those Americans, you have to — at least — admit that the war was pre-emptive. "Don't let the smoking gun be a mushroom cloud" means that the gun hasn't fired yet, right?
The violence used in the war must be proportional to the injury suffered.
*Even* if 9/11 is the injury and "terrorism" is the perpetrator, haven't coalition forces destroyed 10x as many Iraqis as 9/11's victims?
