three years ago today this iconic photograph of american triumphalism was taken in bagdad. three years later, many of us are wondering "what the hell is going on?"
my intention is not to raise an overdebated hot issue, but just to mark this day in memory and juxtapose it with the other event that is remembered today: palm sunday.
if you have time, read through this thoughtful essay a prof of mine wrote: Christian Reflections on War.
here's a quote fom it- "Many Christians in the United States seem to have confused Caesar and Christ. We seem to have confused a kingdom of this world—our nation—with the Kingdom of God. The will and interests of our nation have become conflated with the will and values of God."
