This study contends that the second American military intervention in Iraq fails to meet the just war criteria.

For the first time in the history of the western democracies, the United States, Britain and Australia have prepared for a war without the blessing and moral authority of their churches. This is a completely unprecedented situation (p. 11).

The book traces the Church’s efforts to challenge the US rationale for war, and then assesses the arguments in detail.
