International cooperation seems to be early "collateral damage" as "Isolated Turkey warned by EU [BBC] - Turkey was warned by the European Commission on Monday that sending its troops into Iraq could "complicate" its EU membership chances"
It seems that diplomacy is to be expected from those outside teh Bush/Rumsfeld/Wolfowitz cabal but those within can operate, as usual "in a manner and at a time of our choosing".

Whatever collaboration arises will be testimony to hard-dieing good-will as only those with selective memory can credity Uncle Sam with anything but ulterior motives. US efforts to bribe and coerce had only the most limited success. (UK motives seem to stem from another century, when Churchill recommended chemical bombs to teach Kurdish peasants respect.)
Perhaps a coalition of the isolated is in order: Jordan, Iran, Canada, France ...

Human need, not corporate greed ... without justice, there can be no peace. That's the meme stringing these items together.
