Just War Proposal
It seems that the United States and our other allies attacked Iraq because there was
an opportunity of capturing or killing highly ranked officials. When the news of this
came in our forces jumped right on this mission. They used different types of missiles,
launching them off of boats and dropping them from the air. This information was just a

be threatened after this (http://www.arabnews.com/Article.asp?ID=25627).
