Iraq, the Modern Day Crusades?

I had a discussion this weekend regarding the war in Iraq. The individual tried to justify the war based on their belief that Islam is a religion of war and violence, and that the war was going to protect Christians from Islamic persecution. They compared the war today with the Crusades of centuries ago.

I then asked a simple question:

If this war is supposed to protect Christians from Islam, then why is our military defending Sharia law in Iraq?

Article 2 of the Iraq constitution states:

First, Islam is the official religion of the State, and is a foundation source of all legislation.

A. No law may be enacted that contradicts the established provisions of Islam.

I also reminded this individual which presidents state department helped draft that constitution...

The debate ended in utter silence.
