Small coalition will get even smaller

By Aldanatech ·
According to an article published yesterday, Hungary's troops will soon leave Iraq, after its parliament voted down a government proposal to extend the mission of its 300-strong military contingent in Iraq on Monday, obliging Budapest to withdraw its forces by the end of 2004.

What kind of impact will this have on the coalition? Do you think this will make it harder for the U.S. to restore peace in Iraq?

"Do you think this will make it harder for the U.S. to restore peace in Iraq?"

It's difficult to imagine it being any harder than it already is to restore peace in Iraq. For a nation with a 228-year history to believe that it understands hatreds that have been simmering for more than a thousand years and that it can figure out how to bring them to an end is the ultimate hubris.

Any ideas?

by Aldanatech In reply to "Harder"?

I'm with you DC_GUY. Restoring peace in Iraq is essential to its overall restoration process and for implementing democracy. Any ideas or suggestions on how we might get closer to accomplish that goal?
