The Austrian Connection

One of the four UN observers killed in the Israelei airstrike in Lebanon was an Austrian brigadier. Here in Wien it is a major topic of conversation. Well, if they truly want to get some UN troops to act as peacekeepers there, I know one nation that is definitely not going to volunteer troops. Another triumph for diplomacy (I know John Bolton would heartily approve).

Also, I think this is a telling headline "Bush-Blair discuss Middle East discord." Do you think they were talking about how to make more of it?
