In the Times, the fascinating disconnect between the US and its (former?) allies. On the one hand, the White House is absolutely confident Europe will fall in line with whatever the US does in Iraq.

On the other hand, European leaders say they've just about had it with the Bush Administration's sanctimonious certainty.

And while that spat festers, let us not forget the Rumsfeld gaffe, which has made this administration only marginally more popular across Europe than Iraq's. All in all, a helluva week in diplomacy.
