Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

it's pretty multilateral. germany's decision to pass seems much less controversial than france's in the iraq build up.

i get it, america can't use drones because europe doesn't have them, so it will be obvious they're spearheading this little um, skirmish.

replay the falklands with more bells on?

let's hope not, and the stated humanitarian claims are more authentic than saving the iraquis from their brutal dictator.

it's a gamble, going in militarily, will the gambler know when to stop?

or will the temptation to prop them up until they all get purple thumbs and such be too seductive?
