Happy feast of Corpus Christi, traditional Roman Catholics.

Heritage of the First World War
· Why the US should have stayed put (quotation attributed to Winston Churchill?!)
· The surprising battles of Baghdad

From the last comes this déjà vu quotation:

'People of Baghdad, remember for 26 generations you have suffered under strange tyrants who have ever endeavoured to set one Arab house against another in order that they might profit by your dissensions. This policy is abhorrent to Great Britain and her Allies for there can be neither peace nor prosperity where there is enmity or misgovernment. Our armies do not come into your cities and lands as conquerors or enemies, but as liberators.' — Lieutenant-General Sir Frederick Stanley Maude

Hit-and-run liberals
Until now I haven't written anything about the débàcle in Phoenix with its sometime RC bishop because, evil as it is, I thought it didn't have anything to do with the faith or the world situation, but this article has a point.
