Here I was thinking that we had no allies.

Apparently our "unilateral" action isn't what it seems. Our Eastern European allies see their commitment to our mission on Iraq as worthwhile.

Just check out this statement from the Polish Defense Minister Radek Sikorski:

We are there because of our investment in a strong U.S.-Polish relationship. We
want to show the United States we will be with them when we are needed," he
said. "To that extent, we have done what we hoped to do."

This guy gets it. He understands that the forces that oppressed his nation lie in the ashheap of history because for fifty years, the US stood on the wall and vanquished the "inevitable" triumph of Marxism.

Brings tears to my eyes. Long Live Poland, Georgia, and the Ukraine.
