Bombs and Ballots

EU states/candidates with troops in Iraq and elections within approx. 2 years (date of elections noted below):

Czech Republic, November 2004
Denmark, November 2005
Hungary, June 2005
Italy, May 2006
Lithuania, October 2004
Poland, September 2005
Portugal, January 2006
Romania, November 2004
Slovakia, April 2004
U.K., May 2005 (might be delayed until June '06)

I suspect al-Qaeda would very much like to hit London, Rome or Warsaw next (in that order).

London looks pretty certain.

(Hat Tip: WSJ Europe)

NB: The Dutch don't have elections in the next two years.

BTW, that's a lot of European states with troops in Iraq, isn't it?

But all this is "unilateral", lest you forget.
