Triduum Comes Early in Iraq

Grim news of "the fourth targeted murder in three days against the Christian community" — In Mosul, 20-year-old student killed, for Christians it is like Good Friday. Wissam Georges, 20, was collateral damage in George W. Bush's ill-begotten war.

Collateral damage or the continued clash of religions in the Middle East? After eight years, can you still blame George Bush? Are Christians better off or worse off without Saddam Hussein and the previous Iraqi suppressive government?

OK, but they at least had the freedom to leave. But I know that's a weak argument...tough to leave your homeland when you don't want to. We should get out soonest in Iraq and decide what the endstate is for Afghanistan and leave quickly too. I'm not anti-war, but I enjoy reading your point of view and good posts. I think you are a good catholic gentlemen. Keep posting!
