In addition to what you said, squats will not injure you knees nor will they give you back pain as long as you are using correct form.
Back pain can still arise from squats of good mechanics. Reason is spinal compression. The weight resting on the shoulders needs to exert force somewhere, and that somewhere is the spinal disks. I am not saying everyone should run away from squats though, they are still a huge staple in my clients training programs, but need to heed the warning signs if they present themselves.
