Now Mongolia appears to be part of the "Coalition" fighting with the USA in Iraq. Maureen Dowd pointed this out in the NYTimes, but I thought she was just being her usual facetious self. But see the White House Web Page, which lists Mongolia among its Allies, right along with other M-powers Macedonia, Micronesia and the Marshall Islands.

Speaking of Mongolians, and since US forces are at the moment approaching Baghdad, this seems to be a good time to re-post Saddam's January 17th Speech in which he called Americans "The New Mongols" and implied that George Bush was the New Hulegu. Hulegu you will recall was Chingis Khan's grandson who sacked Baghdad in 1258.
