Of additional interest is that Pres. Berlusconi of Italy is now joining
in supporting Bush's position. In a joint news conference today with
Bush, he (Berlusconi) said that 'certain european leaders are still
operating with a cold war mindset, they need to move forward into the
future instead', or something to that effect.

I expect that Britain, Greece, and possibly Turkey will be the the next
european nations to support Bush.
