The Spanish Flu

The Phillipines have caught the "Spanish Flu" and not willing to have any more of it's citizens threatened to be killed by terrorists (as opposed to being killed by Saudi employers), have decided to pull it's 51 troups out of Iraq ASAP. Yet again, the coalition is being let down by the weaker members. Looks like the score is Terrorists 2, Coalition 0. Any bets on if the hostage is released alive and un-hurt?

You are being unfair to the coalition. I believe up to and including the Phillipine fold, it was Terrorists 2, Coalition 2 (Italy & Korea). Now with the appearance, sadly, of a Bulgarian (confirmed yet?) the count ought to be 2-3. And to be exact we are part of the coalition, so it ought to be 2-4.

I suggest we concentrate on never forgeting and frequently honoring our valiant friends. Others may come and go as the pressures ebb and flow, still they might find steely resolve at some time in the future. Right now it is best to forget the others, whether it be the Phillipines or ... hmmm.... or that that other country .... sorry, I can't remember the other one.

(Let me just say, I do remember reading a report that the Spanish soldiers in Iraq were quite sorry to be leaving. Not all the Spanish are quivering, spineless, half-hearted lovers of freedom.)
