I was wondering if it is wrong to disagree with a Pope on Just War in Iraq? We aren’t bound to his teaching on a war absolutely being JUST as it isn’t a moral doctrine we have to agree with like a dogma, even if he is the Pope right and he may be right, correct?
I think I am changing my position in saying that it was good to remove Saddam, but the war wasn’t just. Prior, I was just thinking it was good to remove Saddam for the things he had done. This being apart of the USA being partakers in an unjust war, whether or not it was weapons of mass destruction or oil.
I keep hearing how “evil” America was for fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan and Pakistan. Even Americans say this in online articles, but mainly Muslims say this. I read the Popes didn’t agree with the war in iraq, not sure what they thought about the others wars or just trying to get rid of Saddam Husein much light Osama Bin Laden, if either of those were JUST WARS or justified.
Thank you for your thoughts!
God Bless you!
One of twelve reasons… E.g. - “Saddam Hussein (1937–2006), Iraqi President, responsible for many torturings, killings and of ordering the 1988 cleansing of Kurds in Northern Iraq.”
