Tradional Catholicism and the Iraq War

Forum Friday: Iraq an Unjust War?
In the Catholicism Forum, our moderator, Steven Hepburn, has begun an interesting thread on a report issued in the Netherlands that found that the war in Iraq, which the Dutch government supported, had "no basis in international law." Steven, like I and the current and previous popes, opposed the war because it did not meet the requirement of just-war theory, but I'm interested in hearing from those who thought (at least at the time of the U.S. invasion) that it was justified. Have you changed your mind? Why or why not? Please join in the discussion in the forum!
