NPR's Sylvia Poggioli reports from Rome on reaction to today's Wall Street Journal op-ed piece, signed by eight European nations, in support of U.S. policy toward Iraq. The eight signatories were the leaders of Britain, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Denmark, Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic. France and Germany — both now members of the U.N. Security Council — have been vocal opponents of war in Iraq. The appearance of today's letter raised questions about solidarity among the Europeans.
