Italy Stands Tall. Josh Marshall Blows It. 
The Italians are standing firm with the US and the Iraqi people, saying they will not withdraw their 2,300 troops despite the terrorist attack on their military police headquarters the other day, that killed 30 people.

Killer quote from Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi: "No intimidation will budge us from our willingness to help that country rise up again and rebuild itself with self-government, security and freedom."


The very next day, Japan gets skittish about its 150 troops, and the South Koreans increase force protection measures for their 600 troops in response to the attack.

Josh Marshall's twisted response: "Were all alone. There's no other way to put it."

Can he be serious?? He doesn't even mention the Prime Minister's steadfastness.

I'd like to introduce him to the comrades of a soldier who was killed alongside our own troops in a joint raid here in Ramadi a couple of weeks ago. He was British.
