Amid the scandals, torture and atrocities that have spun out of the Iraqi invasion, worldwide context has been a war victim. To wit:
In a hierarchy of outrageous occurrences, we have a skivvy-clad Saddam Hussein, commodable Korans (retraction notwithstanding), a sexual pyramid, video-taped beheadings and car-bombed civilians.
For added clarity, call it: embarrassment, sacrilege and humiliation on one side and murder and carnage on the other.
These days that’s pretty much a wash – at best.
