Iraq course bound to end badly
By Fr Andrew Greeley
Who’s not simpatico with us religiously (essentially he combines a patronising liking of traditional trappings with a ’70s-swinger-wannabe view of sex*) but this blog acknowledges truth from all quarters and this article is good. The only point he misses is that chances are there won’t be another Hussein, a secular ruler, but an extreme Muslim government of Shi’ites like Iran, understandably pissed off at the US.

*I’ve read exactly one of his serious books and one of his mass-market novels, the former big on the first thing with a lot of the second, the latter focusing on the second. In spite of all that every now and then he has something good to say.
