Monty Python does Baghdad Reality Show

HT Andrew Sullivan

Iraqi: "We've just received a death threat. I'm Sunni, my wife, Shia. This letter stuck to our gate says, 'We will cut your tongues out, behead you and exterminate your entire family... in the name of Allah the merciful.'"

American "peacekeeper": "Um, ok. Here, take my card. In case you have any trouble, call this number."

This all sounds too like a Monty Python skit.

American soldier: "Um, sir... won't he have a hard time calling for help if they've cut his tongue out?"

American officer: "You're right Johnson. Let's make sure to pray for them when we get back to camp."

Good thing we have religion to teach people morals and to show the way to peace. And since that isn't working, let's send a bunch of armed-to-the-teeth Christians to show them how to do the peace thing.
