Church of England head slams US foreign policy
The head of the 70-million strong worldwide Anglican communion, Dr Rowan Williams, has made another outspoken attack on American foreign policy.
Dr Williams, who is the Archbishop of Canterbury and spiritual head of the Church of England, made the comments to a British magazine which has a mainly Muslim readership.
He compared America’s use of power unfavourably with the old British Empire, and said Washington’s attempts to accumulate influence around the world were not working.
He cited the situation in Iraq as a particular example.
Though the history of the old British Empire is full of bloody wars, occupations, slavery, etc., indeed, in the case of Iraq, British occupation, though bloody, did not lead to over a million dead, four million refugees, and the other disasters of George W. Bush’s present occupation.
The interview is in emel magazine.

allies to begin an immediate withdrawal from Iraq.
Iowa Bishop Gregory Vaughn Palmer, 53, was elected to lead
the worldwide Council of Bishops of the 11 million-member
church, the nation’s second largest Protestant denomination.
The resolution calling for an immediate troop withdrawal from
Iraq also urges no permanent military bases in Iraq,
increased support for military veterans and support for a
This isn’t the first time Bush has been called to account by his
brethren. As early as 2003, just after the triumphant “end of
major combat operations in Iraq,” Methodists expressed
their displeasure with the current occupant. A group of 120
of their leaders signed a document entitled “A Prophetic
Epistle from United Methodists Calling Our Brother George
W. Bush to Repent.”
