Coalition Of The Shrinking

Italy sez it's time to get their own house in order.
Reforms Minister Roberto Calderoli of the right-wing Northern League party said Friday the time had come for the United Nations to begin discussing "the progressive withdrawal of troops, beginning with our contingent, perhaps by September."

"It's evident that after New York, Madrid and London, Italy represents the most probable next objective of the terrorists," he said. "The time has come to begin to think also about our house, and to use the same resources currently committed in Iraq to prevent and combat possible attacks on our territory."
Arrivederci!

By the way, I can go on and on about what Italy was up to as part of the Kosovo coalition--but in retrospect, and in fairness to them, they were only doing what was in their national interest, which was trying to stem the tide of Serb refugees into their country.

They couldn't afford to absorb all those emigres.
