Friends List

Via USS Clueless, a list of what countries are helping out in Iraq. It makes for some interesting reading. And worth remembering when your liberal friends insist the entire world is against us. Well, I have friends like that. Don't know about you all :)

come on now, "82 military engineers"? "400 troops assigned to humanitarian operations"? This isnt a list of supporters, this is a list of political allies who are paying lip service to the most powerful nation on earth so that they dont lose their funding and trade relations. this does NOT reflect the international sentiment against the war

And the evidence justifying this condescending attitude of yours, tim, would be...?

I used to have friends like that, but we don't talk anymore. *shrug*

Deb, the majority of my RL friends are libs. Blogging is a godsend! :)

im not trying to be condescending. im trying to support an alternate view from the one you posted, since i happen to think it is one-sided. if you feel like attacking me for that, that's fine.

as to evidence, why dont you look at any number of international news sources, and see what people from those countries are saying and feeling about the US efforts in Iraq. you will certainly see a very different face to all this than the rosy one presented by US news sources

for starters, you can even take a look at this article, which was linked right off the page you referred to showing "broad international support" for the war effort
