One of the most dispiriting things about our involvement in Iraq was our total, I mean total indifference to the fate of the ancient Christian community in that country. That is why the pope was against the invasion, because he knew that the Muslims were primed for a war against Christians in the Middle East. Bush could have given Christians the protection of the US forces, could have but did nothing. Maybe he figured he couldnt, not long term, that he had opened pandoras box.
Or perhaps Bush 2 is just as much an employee of our Saudi friends as Obama. Why did we think the Bush’s were conservative or Christian?
