Making the World Safe for Christianity
The sad fact is that even under the despicable rule of Saddam Hussein, Christians were safer in Iraq than they are today. Saddam Husseinís foreign minister was a practicing Christian.

That should tell us something about the shortcomings of a policy that presumes to make the world safe for democracy.
