Is this a just war or not?

"But the country did not rise to the occasion, and our enemies know that we
fought them on the cheap. They know that we did not, would not, and will not
tolerate the disruption of our normal way of life. They know that they did
not seize our full attention. They know that we have hardly stirred. And as
long as they have these things to know, they will neither stand down nor
shrink back, and, for us, the sorrows that will come will be greater than
the sorrows that have been."

More than merely winning the war in Iraq, we needed to stun the Arab World.
