Just when you think the EU is a bunch of appeasment wankers wiping Saddam's spew off their chins:

=================

"The transatlantic relationship must not become a casualty of the current Iraqi regime's persistent attempts to threaten world security.... We must remain united in insisting that [Saddam Hussein's] regime be disarmed," says the letter, published in 12 European newspapers and The Wall Street Journal.

The statement belies the impression of a concerted European opposition to a war in Iraq. But it also runs counter to the trend of European public opinion. Polls have shown that in most countries upwards of 60 percent oppose a war, with the proportion rising to about 80 percent if the United Nations does not give its blessing to an invasion.

The letter was signed by the leaders of Spain, Portugal, Italy, Britain, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, and Denmark. They made their move just days after US Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld dismissed Germany and France as "old Europe," and claimed that "vast numbers" of other European countries were "with the United States."

The declaration, which agreed with the US view that Mr. Hussein's "long established pattern of deception, denial, and non-compliance with UN Security Council resolutions is continuing," underscored divisions on an uncertain continent as the prospect of war looms closer.

This restores my faith in one of the most violent regions the world has ever known.

Yeah, I'm proud and happy that Berlusconi (along with Blair and Aznar) took this position against the stupid mala fide blindness of France and Germany.
The West must stand united at all costs; if France disagrees they are free to do so (but they can't expect us to agree with they stupid policy). Frenchmen ought to shove their ****ing grandeur up in their asses.

The frogs are holdin out for more sweeties from the dessert trolley. Their 'policy' is about present and future commerce with the ME. Which in truth is also part of the 'coallition's' planned 'regime-change' as well.

Unlike the eight - the frogs don't come cheap.

Wrong statement. Not 8 European Nations BUT only
8 prime-ministers without consulting with their people or
their representatives.
A piece of sh!t with no value but 2nd class marketing.

No, not this time, no way.
This time the frogs have gone too far. It is usually their policy to strongly disagree with the Americans at the UN and on the media at first (making their diplomatic job more difficult), for later negotiating with them and in this way proclaiming to the world their relevance, that they are still a global player (doing the so-called
