Heritage on Rice in Europe

If you ignore the usual Euro-bashing opening remarks, this commentary by Peter Brookes is actually a rational and useful summary of the topics being discussed during Rice's visit to Europe. Perhaps this signals a "coming together" of American wingnuts and Euro-American liberals.

I definitely agree that it is time to drop the divisions over Iraq. Regardless of what one thinks of the war (and the manner in which it was initiated and conducted) it seems clear to most that everybody should help as much as they can. International engagement will be absolutely required in order to keep the new Iraqi Gov't from embracing anti-liberal and totalitarian traits. Europe can and should do a lot here.
