To help restore Iraq

As the war in Iraq appears near closure, one's attention naturally turns to the need to reconstruct, or restore, what has been lost. To restore something means to give it back, ot return it to its original position. Of course that applies both to the physical structure of this ancient Bible land, which includes the historic site of Babylon, and to the morale of its people, who have lived under a particularly sordid kind of tyranny.

While the restoration of physical property is expensive but relatively easy to accomplish, the restoration of a people is another matter. Americans in particular may have to foot most of the bill for physical reconstruction, but it will be the privilege of thinking people everywhere to participate in the restoration of the Iraqis.
