This was rather lucid, I thought. Yet it raises the whole question of what the appropriate Christian response would be (as opposed to conservative or liberal, and both sides have their head in the sand in different ways). Tim has been thinking about this recently, and I realise that I have never put up on my blog my analysis before the Iraq invasion, which is still - with a wealth of caveats - my basic understanding. Perhaps I'll put that up next.
