War on Christianity

Remind us again, what 'noble cause' was George W. Bush prattling on about? I can't recal the destruction of Iraq's ancient Christian community as part of those aims.

The destruction of Iraq's Christian community – one of the oldest in the world – is no mean feat. The religion took root in the land in the first generation after the Romans executed the troublesome of Nazareth, and has flourished there for almost 2,000 years. Now it is being wiped out before our eyes. Half gone already, it will certainly disappear altogether in the next few years, as civil war consumes the nation, and sects devoted to the most fanatic and retrograde distortions of Islam – empowered beyond measure by the Bush Faction's war of aggression – impose their draconian rule. Surely the oh-so-Christian Coalition of Bush and Blair will record this with their many high and worthy deeds.
With this kind of feat already achieved, the fate of Lebanese Christians at the hands of an 'ally in the War on Terror' is surely sealed.
