    All but Italian, British, and US forces are the only one staying in Iraq after March 31st. Sort of sad they all want a bid on oil contracts but don't want to help stablize the country. Shows who's really just looking out for themselves in this situation.

    The snub by Chirac at this meeting, the obvious contempt by most countries toward the US, the increasingly blatant attacks on the dollar (along with a openly-stated goal of displacing the dollar as a reserve currency for the oil market. All of this, and more, makes the EU at least as beligerant as China, maybe more so.

    Agreed. Hasn't that always been the case? Besides America, name one country that ever went out of its way to help another? The "Me first" attitude rules in Europe. Damn with democracy, liberty, and all those other high falutin'(?) ideas that George W. holds so dear!
