The war against Iraq cannot be supported from biblical principles. Iraq had not attacked the United States, so there is no justification for an attack against it. The United States intervention in Iraq was morally wrong (see United States invasion of Iraq).

New Zealand should not be sending troops to Iraq. We are not defending ourselves against an attack by Iraq, so there is no justification for us being involved in a war against the Iraqi people.
