Maybe I’m Beating a Dead Horse

Maybe I’m Beating a Dead Horse, and maybe I’m just stupid, but using St. Augustine’s and St. Thomas’ just war theories, could you explain why the wars in the Middle East were unjust? I may have already asked this, but I’m not sure I phrased it well. Sorry in advance.

Well, for ex., re. the last go-round in Iraq: Iraq didn't invade us, wasn't a threat, and wasn't behind 9-11. All our efforts did was destabilize the place and eliminate Iraq's Christian community. Even Wikipedia relates this fact: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christianity_in_Iraq

And all those displaced Christians were, of course, refused asylum by Obama while, also of course, Muslims were allowed to immigrate at whim. 

The overall goal is to use Islam to eradicate Christianity -- in the ME, in Europe, wherever.

Ok. That makes sense. The US had no right intention to go in because it was based on WMD which showed little proof of existence.

Noooo leave my poor state alone :(  

To OP:  I was actually talking the other night to a military chaplain (I'm assuming he's a trad, he'd just finished saying a High Mass) about just wars and the US Armed Forces.  If you want I can try to get his number for you.
