Publisher's Description

Is it ever appropriate for a nation to strike first?


Overview


As this study was being prepared, President Bush was trying to muster support at home and abroad for a preemptive attack on Iraq. Many people were rightly debating, Is it right for the U.S. to invade Iraq? Whether the Iraqi situation is ongoing or long past, the central issues raised in this debate will continue to be discussed until the Prince of Peace returns. In this study, we ll explore the concept of just war, and particularly, whether it is ever appropriate for a nation to strike first in a war.
