Note: It has been over two years since I wrote this paper for a class in History of Christianity. Even at that time, I had some serious doubts over the war in Iraq. Since then, my ideas have become concrete and my opposition has grown since the day I wrote this paper. This paper was intended to show both perspectives; both sides of the issue. I used the best resources I had at that time and composed what appears to be a fair representation of why some believed the war was necessary and why others believed it would be a disaster. The evidence is here presented. I hope this analysis may bear some fruit as you consider the condition of this debate over two years ago. Please leave some thoughts when you are done. For your convenience I have added some links and made the footnotes more easily accessible.
