You're absolutely right, Gaby. Unfortunately, my time is limited and I cannot fit a 7-page address on one post.

In terms of courage, I certainly would place Tony Blair at Bush's side. In fact, he's probably faced even more opposition at home than Bush has here in the States, and so has risked even more for the sake of his citizens.

Bush appreciates the multi-national support, as noted in one of his best lines: "Some critics have said our duties in Iraq must be internationalized. This particular criticism is hard to explain to our partners in BRITAIN, Australia, Japan, South Korea, the Phillippines, Thailand, Italy, Spain, Poland, Denmark, Hungary [etc, etc, etc]."

As far as willingness to do what is right, America has the best track record of any nation in the world. To be the most powerful and the most morally sound is a unique combination in recorded history.

Now I'm late for work, but the clarification is important. Thanks, Gaby.
