NATO IS SUPPOSED TO BE HELPING IRAQ TRAIN TRAIN THEIR MILITARY AND THEIR POLICE - BUT:
"France, Germany, Spain, Belgium, Luxembourg and Greece have refused to contribute personnel. ... The top U.S. military commander in Europe - [ Gen. James Jones, Supreme Allied Commander in Europe] - criticized NATO countries who refused to provide military instructors for a training mission in Iraq saying the result will be an increased burden on allies who are contributing. ... Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, speaking at a news conference at the Pentagon called the refusal by certain NATO countries to send personnel a problem."
MOST OF NATO'S 26 COUNTRIES ARE SENDING PERSONNEL. Old Europe and their cowardly friends are not. We know France's excuse: their army has their hands full killing unarmed Cote Ivoirians.
