NYT: France and Germany Constitute

NYT: France and Germany Constitute All of Europe!

Or so it would appear, from the clumsy opening sentence of their lead website story on Iraq today.

"Europe and Iraq voiced sharp opposition today to a new British proposal setting out six ways for Saddam Hussein to prove his commitment to disarmament and avoid an invasion."

But wait, a European country sponsored the resolution. Another two, on the UNSC, support it (Spain, Bulgaria). Maybe the NYT really meant to say "old" Europe was sharply opposed?
