13. Dumb question!
Edited on Sat Sep-06-03 11:53 PM by IndianaGreen
We were attacked by Imperial Japan. One could either go to war, or surrender. Those were the only choices that were available to us.

Ironically, we didn't had to go to war with Germany, but Hitler declared war on us first.

Waging war on the Axis Powers during WWII fits the definition of a just war. The war on Iraq was not a just war, even the Pope made a big point about that when he warned America and Britain against an attack on Iraq.

On edit:

I didn't mean to imply that your question was dumb, doubleplusgood! I was referring to the question in the poll. Thanks.
