Let's see... The Islamic radicals blew up the WTC in 1993. They bombed
two US embassies. They blew up the USS Cole. Then they dropped the WTC,
damaged the Pentagon and downed 4 jets. I think that adds up to over 4
times. IOW, our war against Terrorism is justified. We have been patient
with the attacks. Are we totally innocent? Probably not. However, the
difference is in the intended target. Wicked people target innocent
peoples.
Even now with Iraq, we are patiently giving them the chance to start
abiding by the UN resolutions they agreed to abide by over a decade ago.
We have given them several warnings over the years, more than four. So,
is a war with Iraq justified? probably.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

JWR:
Why turn to the commentaries of the Brethren?  Just learn the eternal
principles of war explained by the Lord in D&C, Section 98.  We are never
justified in aggression.  And we may not retaliate until the enemy has
come against us four times with a warning from us after the first three.
 
The Brethren stick pretty close the standard works.  They don't deviate
far if at all.  Some might argue that this is a "different kind of war." 
Don't let the devil deceive you.  The principles are eternal.  If we
can't find how to implement them in the current situation then we need to
figure out a way to do it.  Do what is right.  Let the consequences
follow.  It's not just an nice saying, it is the Law.
