NATO and Iraq

The US is preparing the ground for NATO to take on a bigger role in Iraq.

NATO as a body has been broadly supportive of President Bush´s approach after 9/11, something recently reconfirmed, in the most ringing tones, by NATO´s Dutch Secretary General, Jaap de Hoop Scheffer, who said of the Iraq elections that "Bush was right... and the cynics were wrong."

If the US seeks support from NATO, it´ll be pushing at an open door. The last thing de Hoop Scheffer wants is to follow poor Kofi Annan on the road to perdition.
