Just a word before Mr Edmonds kills off this thread. I recently had the great pleasure of having a 30 minute conversation with a cab driver who is from Iraq. He assured me that life in Iraq is very very difficult under the current dictatorship, and that 100% of the population would welcome external intervention in establishing a new political system in their country. I was shocked as I had started to lean towards the non-interventionist camp. It is a bit different when you get this sort of information first hand.

Which of the following is more likely:
a. a Muslim born in the the region of Mecca being able to walk freely around
Ireland and to kiss the Blarney stone
b. a Christian born in Ireland being able to walk freely around Mecca and to
kiss the Kaaba stone
As non-Muslim Westerners we would probably encounter great difficulty in
trying to enter the sacred areas of Mecca. How many non-Muslims have been
successful attempting this? Sir Richard Burton comes to mind.
