One, Two, Three

Mr. Bush's aides do not seem especially concerned about the prospect of a veto [in the Security Council]. But they concede they do not know if they have the votes to pass what one official called "a clearly worded resolution." Several officials expressed fear today that the deep divide over Iraq that has already triggered a crisis within the NATO alliance — a formal meeting of NATO ambassadors was called off today — may soon engulf the European Union.

The United Nations, NATO and the EU. The existence of each one threatened by Franco-German meglomania, denialism and obstructionism.

This is not necessarilly a bad thing.
