- The Washington Times - Saturday, March 8, 2003

As the United States and an honorable "coalition of the willing" prepare to enforce U.N. resolutions demanding the disarmament of Iraq, the New York Times has been horrified. In the wake of the statement by Germany, Russia and France, the Times bemoaned in a March 6 editorial that "a crippling deadlock" in the Security Council would be "the worst of all possible outcomes." Such a deadlock would "sever the few remaining restraints that have kept the Bush administration from going to war with its motley ad hoc coalition of allies." Well, let's review who comprises this disparaged "motley ad hoc coalition":
Britain;
Spain;
Italy;
Portugal;
Hungary;
The Czech Republic;
Poland;
Denmark;
Albania;
Bulgaria;
Croatia;
Estonia;
Latvia;
Lithuania;
Macedonia;
Romania;
Slovakia;
Slovenia.
