Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I just have to disagree.  What y'all have done after Iraq might be different (you are really out-appeasing yourselves...).  I was thinking about the fact that the world sat by and watched as we invaded Iraq, because they didn't want to piss us off or get involved and because who cares about Iraq anyway, when in fact it was just the first step in our plan to invade the entire Middle East.  There was no UNSC vote (because it would have failed), but the coalition of the willing and the coalition of the simply complaining but not doing one damn thing to stop us strikes me as a modern day Munich Accord if there ever were one.  Afghanistan, though poorly executed, could have been a "just war".  Iraq opened pandora's box.  Iraq will be our Czechoslovakia.
