holy? i don't see no jesus up there

cut to the chase, amoung others has an article describing the defacing of holy relics in iraq by us troops. from political commentary by marc rios:

United States forces fighting in the holy Shiite city of Najaf have damaged the shrine of Ali. This is extremely significant: imagine being a Catholic and finding that some nation had damaged St. Peter's Basilica. The damage is only four bullet holes, but the symbolism is very very serious.

wow. there is no respect for the religion of iraq being shown is there?
