Europe’s moral quandry: Mensch or surrender money?
: Bin Laden supposedly offers European nations a “truce” if they withdraw troops from any Muslim nations.
So now we have the moral counterpoint to Bush’s your-with-us-or-you’re-against-us challenge. Are you with bin Laden or America? Are you with murdering religous fundamentalist fanatics or modernity? Are you with civilization or not? Pretty clear choice to me. It’s not about Bush. It’s about right and wrong. Very clear choice.
If Europe has any balls — and soul and moral fiber — every nation will announce today that they are sending troops to Iraq and that bin Laden can go F himself.
: UPDATE: Of course, Britain has balls. But do the French?
Italy has balls. But do the Germans?
: EVENING UPDATE: France and Germany have balls!
