An Estonian Fatility in Iraq

Estonia's first soldier felled by hostile action since its independence.

Maureen Dowd likes poking fun at the notion of the likes of Salvadoreans or Latvians serving in Iraq.

But these are real sovereign governments that, per their independent analysis of their national interest, sent real people to Iraq.

And some of them, tragically, die.

Their sacrifices cheapen Dowd's juvenile rhetoric about brash unilateralists Don, Dick and Georgie.
