Slovenakia Watch no. 5477

AlterNet: War on Iraq: Slovenia, Slovakia

"The tiny republic of Slovenia got a bit of a shock last week when the Bush war budget listed the nation as one of the beneficiaries of grants allocated to "coalition of the willing" – prompting hundreds of Slovenians to take to the streets. Prime minister Anton Rop promptly protested: "We are a part of no such coalition. We are a part of a coalition for peace." Perhaps the Bush administration was thinking of Slovakia which is one of the willing. A pity geography isn't a required course for all would-be imperialists."
