Europe to Kerry: 'Dream On' 
From the International Herald Tribune:

Early in September, a German official, asked privately by a visitor if Kerry's claim of good relations with Europe could get him a German military presence in Iraq, stifled a guffaw; an explicit response, but wordless, and difficult to transcribe.
.
But last week, just after Kerry's major speech on the war in which he insisted that the United States "must make Iraq the world's responsibility" and that others "should share the burden," Schröder's sense of courtesy collided with reality and he drove a spike into the notion. He told reporters, "We won't send any German soldiers to Iraq, and that's where it's going to remain."


No. And there were never going to be. That was NEVER realistic. We couldn't even get Germany on board in a meaningful way for the First Gulf War, which did have UN backing.

It's much appreciated and helpful presence in Afghanistan notwithstanding, Germany simply has no appetite for foreign adventures. Which is as it should be.

More, from a South German newspaper:


As for the Democrat, Süddeutsche said Kerry "is suggesting that he can produce a little miracle and seduce America's battered friends into high-yield performances along the lines of Washington's wishes." For all of Kerry's opportunity to create a foreign policy with greater credibility and legitimacy, that was not realistic, it said. Schröder couldn't send Bundeswehr troops to Iraq, and there would be "no morning-after special gift for a President Kerry."


No, there won't. Kerry is deluding himself if he thinks there's going to be a Deus Ex Machina of altruistic Europeans and other nations coming to bail us out, even as he or his campaign 1.) screeches about what an awful situation it is, 2.) Denounces the Prime Minister of Iraq--on whose percieved legitimacy we rely--as a Bush "puppet," 3.) Goes on and on about how Iraq was 'the wrong war in the wrong place at the wrong time, 4.) Argues--as his sister (and member of his campaign staff) did--that standing with the United States makes their citizenry less safe, and 5.) Badmouths our coalition partners, calling them "a coalition of the coerced and the bribed" (and while so doing, undermines their chances for reelection.)

If I were a European leader, I wouldn't touch that with a three meter pole.

No.

He doesn't deserve one.

I haven't been around latey, sorry.

But note Kerry never actually says what countries he would get support from. Maybe he actually means Tierra del Fuego, Easter Island, Surinam... Or farther: Beta Centauri, Fomalhaut, Sirius...

Hello, I have a fairly new website that has been online for about 8 months. I looked at alot of websites that are in my area animal print home decor . I have done the internet MLM thing and really got disgusted at the whole thing. So my wife and I thought since we love horses we should build a website around that. We have done pretty good so far but I always want to improve. I didn;t realize it would be so time consuming though. But we love it and hope to improve and offer some of the best recourses and products available. Hence the search for content new products and information about what we have. If you decide to come and visit maybe you can offer some advice That would be great. If not well you have A great new year.

Thank you for your BLOG.

Regards,

Fruit baskets make great gifts for:
College students: College students are notoriously poor eaters. Especially during stressful times surrounding midterms and final exams, college kids do not receive the proper nutrition-and proper nutrition will allow them to excel in their studies.

According to recent news, the erectile dysfunction afflicted elderly people in Brazil were administered with free viagra and as a consequence they were miraculously cured of impotency. Doesn’t this news appear utterly surprising to you? But the man who is well aware of all the information on cheap viagra would never be surprised on hearing the news that the distribution of free viagra among the elderly Brazilian people suffering from sexual dysfunction has cured them of the deadly malady. But if you are not so fortunate to get hold of free Viagra, then you can buy viagra from an authentic source and cure your erectile dysfunction. The need of the hour is to browse through Viagra online, procure Viagra and treat your erectile dysfunction. But before you buy viagra online, it is necessary to consult the physician on your erectile dysfunction and take his necessary recommendations to treat the disease.
