Towards intelligent debate about our involvement in Iraq....

This one was particularly sharp, I thought.  I prefer these to the hard right or left howling editorials.

This week as I reintegrate into the wonderful world of America, I had one person ask me (at least she apologized as she asked it)..."what is the difference between Shi'ia and Sunni?".

I just don't know who to be frustrated about with questions like that.  Our notoriously Americentric public in general? Our government's leadership that has been discussing and debating our involvement in Iraq in a way that has failed to educate our public in any meaningful way about what's going on in that country?
