And now, the Royal Irish...
Lt. Col. Tim Collins addressing the 1st Battalion of the Royal Irish. The British, Australians, Scots AND Irish are with us.
Of course an Irishman gave the best speech I've seen yet at the start of this war. Read it if you don't believe me.
The Canadians are at home like schoolgirls as if they actually were the 51st State or something. The Continent is very wishy washy. The French, Germans, Russians or Chinese will now do well to be reminded that a Permanent Security Council Seat is designed to stop anyone from moving against Permanent Members, and not to constrain their own actions.
Actually I'm pretty certain that the above named powers are quite well aware of that, and have been for the last 50 years. Their systems have all been left behind in the rearview mirror. So the rest of the world will now take note of it once again.

Turkey allows US use of Airspace
Turkey is allowing the US to use it's airspace for attacks on Iraq, but not our air bases in Turkey, even for refueling. News reports have been emphasizing how this will mostly help for bombing raids, but it will also be very useful for getting the 101st Airborne into Kirkuk (which has 10 billion barrel oil reserves).

More War Coverage Links
More good war coverage links over at E Pluribus Unum. And not a whole lot of overlap with the list I posted earlier.

Clinton backing Bush and Blair!
And putting the blame for the UN breakdown on France and Russia. Take that, Loony Left!
