Iceland Pulls Out of Iraq

One of the purported 36 coalition nations [mentioned by Bush in his speech two nights ago] is Iceland, whose "contingent" to Iraq consists of a single soldier in Baghdad whose primary responsibility is as a media representative. To NATO's disappointment, Iceland is pulling that one soldier as of October 1. You can't make this stuff up.

Funny, I was just about to post something about Laxness's novel ATOM STATION. Those wacky Icelanders. Not enough of 'em.
