As mentioned earlier one possible reason for the European reluctance to deal with Iraq is what might be found there. Now we have the first real hint of that (courtesy Little Green Footballs). I have no doubts that our alledged allies in Europe have been selling WMD equipment and arms to Iraq while calling the US a rogue nation. Given the tight links between industry and government in those countries, there is no way that this trade went on without the knowledge and acquiesence of those governments. Is this what President Bush has been waiting for?
