George Weigel, the official biographer of PJII, has a new article on whether the Iraq war was just or not.
Weigel is an excellent author and politically conservative to go with his orthodoxy. Unlike many in the Church, including JPII, Weigel believed the war was just then and still does.
I agree with him. There has been so many short almost non-covered discoveries about links to al-Queida, bin Ladin and terrorist groups, moving WMD’s, non-compliance with UN resolutions, etc. etc. etc. that to me it is a slam dunk that this guy was in bed with terrorists. As we well know, this is not your father’s war. What was a “just war” then and now is different. Weigel lays it out.
