Reasons for War

Here's a list of pro-war arguments and how I counter them:

International Threat
No concrete proof of WMDs, terrorist links or imminent threat. Saddam's evilness wouldn’t get him convicted in court.
Iraq's 'Liberation'
Deposing Saddam won't solve Iraq's complex problems (see post-Milosevic Serbia).
No alternative
Yes there is. Without proof of imminent threat, inspections should continue.
Democratic Revolution
The whole idea of democracy is that you can't force it down people's throats.
Opponents have ulterior motives
I doubt Europe is scared, uncaring or anti-American (in the 'bigot' sense).
The war won't be so bad
Any civilian casualties are too many.
