The Iraq War Narrative Must Change
Brian McLaren writes on the God’s Politics blog today about “Reactivity and Iraq”: “[James W. Skillen of the Center for Public Justice] summarized the basic narrative of the Iraq War that both our president and his party and many Democrats seem to share: ‘… first, America liberated Iraq from Saddam Hussein; second, we returned sovereignty to the Iraqi people; third, sectarian violence tragically increased; and now, in the fourth phase, we are ‘deploying reinforcements and launching new operations to help Iraqis bring security to their people.’ The elegant word Skillen chooses to describe this narrative is ‘delusional.'”
The Iraq War narrative must change. Everything Must Change.
