Iraq & Just War Theory

Some people have wondered about how Catholics (and other Christians, of course) can reconcile President Bush's stance on Iraq -- i.e. preemptive war -- with the Just War Theory. That is, is it possible to make a moral case which would allow for such a stance?

I believe it is, and I'm not alone. If you're wondering how to one can make a moral argument in favor of Bush's stance, read this Zenit article and interview by and with papal biographer and theologian George Weigel on this very topic.
