Schall on the War
This argument, from the pen of the peerless James V. Schall, S. J. on War & Clergy on National Review Online is the basic argument for the war, and the one that I am reluctantly in agreement with. It is also an explanation as to why those who are against the war will never ben convinced it was a good idea.

Stated simply, the alternative is worse.
Is there something worse than war, something worse than not preventing what needs to be prevented? If it takes a war to prevent this something worse, and we do prevent it, it will always seem, to the anti-war faction, that no real problem existed, because they could not see the evidence for it.
