No replay of the 1914 Chistmas truce in Iraq on this Christmas day

The story of the 1914 ad hoc ,from the bottom up  temporary truce on Christmas day during World War 1 is well known and can be read about in detail here.

This story from the blog site Antiwar.Com tells of deaths in Iraq thought due be due to targeting Christians apparently including some nuns. Of course there is a big difference, France and England  were nominally  Christian countries and both the British and the Germans soldiers had shared very similar Christmas memories from childhood .

Here we just have the unending, unforeseen consequences of just trying  to  "bring Democracy to the Middle East"  of the incredibly bad idea of the war in Iraq.
