Cardinal slams 'billions' spent on Iraq war

Yahoo! News - : "What a terrible thing it is that billions -- and I mean billions of pounds -- are being spent on war in the Middle East which could have been spent bringing people out of dire poverty and malnourishment and disease", said Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor, head of the Roman Catholic Church in England and Wales, according to an advance copy of his address.

"How can one wish a happy Christmas for our fellow Christians in Iraq or in the Holy Land or those who suffer in Africa unless you and I, in whatever way is open to us, say and do what makes for peace?'"
