In light of the fact that now Canada is hinting it will help the US attack Iraq, with or without UN approval, Michael Totten asks the following cogent question:


So, how many countries have to join the US before we stop being unilateralists? Does Saddam have to join the anti-Saddam coalition before regime-change is multilateral?


Well, France, Russia and China have always implied that multilateralism starts and ends with their own involvement, possibly leading to the delightful scenario of dozens of nations participating in the US-led attack which the Big Three still decry as “unilateralist,” an attack that includes most of Europe, Canada, Australia, Yemen, Qatar, Kuwait, India, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, U.A.E., Turkey, the Klingon Empire, Gondor, the Rebel Alliance, the Federation of Morlocks and Eloi, and the planet Marklar (10 points and a shiny new donkey to whoever can spot that last reference).
