How do we know the countries will attack?
What is the criteria for pre-emptive wars?
What if the tables are turned and it is not the US, but another country looking to Pre-emptively strike out?
My take is if your looking for a fight you will always find one and by todays rules no one plays by the rules, so IMO pre-emptive is not a logical solution.
