Standing Tall

A beheaded body in an orange jumpsuit was discovered today near the Tigris River in Iraq. Presumably the body is that of one of the Bulgarians held by Unification and Jihad, a group loyal to Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. The Bulgarian government is not backing away from it's support for Iraq.

Bulgaria, a new member of NATO, has 470 troops based in the central Iraq city of Karbala, according to Reuters.

"Bulgaria must continue to support Iraq and its reconstruction, stabilization and democratic development," said a joint statement by Bulgarian President Georgi Parvanov, Prime Minister Simeon Saxe-Coburg and parliament.

"The battle to defend universal values against fanaticism requires consistency, courage and stamina," it added.

Compare that to the slippery slope that the Philippine government finds itself in.
