4. We don't need to get involved in a religious war

I suppose you want the US to fight on the Christian side?

3. Nothing we can do.

There will be religious warfare, until the last human dies off.

I do feel sorry for the victims, though.

Christmas bombings kill 34 in Iraq

BAGHDAD Wed Dec 25, 2013 11:46am EST

(Reuters) - At least 34 people were killed in three bombings in Christian areas of Baghdad on Wednesday, including a car bomb that exploded as worshippers were leaving a Christmas service, Iraqi police and medics said.

Elsewhere in Iraq, at least 10 people were killed in three attacks that targeted police and Shi'ite pilgrims, police said.

Iraq is enduring its deadliest violence in years, reviving memories of the sectarian bloodshed between Sunni and Shi'ite Muslims that killed tens of thousands in 2006-07.

The day's deadliest incident occurred in the Doura district of southern Baghdad when the car bomb went off as Christians were emerging from a Christmas mass, killing at least 24 people.
