The sins of the father

Are exceeded by the son. According to Archbishop of Canterbury Dr Rowan Williams, who says the US is worse than the British Empire.

Of Britain’s role in Iraq, Dr Williams – a long-term critic of the conflict – says: “A lot of the pressure around the war in Iraq was, ‘We’ve got to do something! Then we’ll feel better.’ That’s very dangerous.”

He describes violence as “a quick discharge of frustration”, saying “It serves you. It does not serve the situation.

“Whenever people turn to violence what they do is temporarily release themselves from some kind of problem but they help no-one else.”
