Everybody has their holdouts

Steven Den Beste slightly dings Canada for being the lone holdout from the anglosphere. Currently in Iraq or in at time of combat are 4 of 5 members. Let me say a few words for Europe's Latins. 5 of 6 are also in Iraq (Portugal, Spain, Italy, Romania, and Moldova), the lone holdout being France. Well every linguistic grouping has their black sheep.

Now put that down Bruce!


Porphyrogenitus comments that this reflects on the Democrat presidential candidates. Could this sort of line be held in reserve come next summer and fall? We'll see.

In any case, the French are in a similar position to the Democrats. The visible media are trumpeting their position so loudly that they're making some errors in assessing support. They're guilty of believing their own press briefings. I wonder which of the two will wake up first.
