NBC on "our allies"

Andrea Mitchell tonight reported on the rift developing between the US and "its allies," without noting that the rift is only between the US and France & Germany. No mention of our other allies (beside the UK) who are supporting us. The way Mitchell described it, France & Germany are our only allies!

There was also a lot of talk about not going it alone, not acting unilaterally. But as Rumsfeld made clear the other day, we have allies who are willing to support us. Again, the fact that France & Germany may not go alone, or that there may not be a UN resolution, doesn't mean it's a unilateral, "going it alone" action. As someone pointed out, the little war in Serbia wasn't done with UN support.

Fortunately we have other sources of media to get a more accurate picture of what's really going on.
