Reasons against War

Here are the anti-war arguments:

It's wrong to kill people
It's illegal and undemocratic
It violates the UN charter. Slim evidence. Most of the world opposes it. No resolution authorizing war was passed.
Questionable tactics
The US mistreats prisoners, bugged the UN and possibly the EU, forged 'evidence' and intimidates the press.
Dire consequences
Iraq's still Iraq. Civil war is likely. Turning it into a stable democracy is extremely difficult. And it alienates Europe and fuels terrorism.
Ulterior motives
Oil, strategic location, business deals, PR, helping Israel, personal vendetta, racism, distracting from national crises may all play a part.
