HANDY FACT-PAGE ON GULF WAR

HANDY FACT-PAGE ON GULF WAR I, or the real start of the war last night, or whatever you want to call it, via Matt Welch.

It’s a CNN page cached by Google, whose highlighting makes it obvious how many countries fought in the first Gulf War: 34. No wonder CNN was flashing tickers that said (paraphrasing) “Bush claims over 35 nations backing U.S.”–that’s one more than the last go around.

Of course, based on this definition, we’re still unilateral.

UPDATE: Or maybe unilateral simply means any coalition that Madeleine Albright doesn’t approve.
