Many people have a lot more important things to say than I do. Here are four links to what Louis Raphael Sako ,Chaldean Patriarch of Babylon has to say about what is going on in Iraq.

The persecution of minorities, the lack of respect for human life, the political power struggles: All existed in John the Baptists time, and they still exist today.
