A Sigh of Relief From Holland

A SIGH OF RELIEF FROM HOLLAND….Via Atrios comes this statement from the U.S. Embassy in The Hague:

Obviously, we cannot envisage circumstances under which the United States would need to resort to military action against the Netherlands or another ally.

Merry Christmas, Dutch people!

(You’ll just have to click the link if you want to find out what prompted our embassy to feel the need to make such a statement.)

UPDATE: Yeah, this is from June 2002. Sorry about that. Still kinda funny, though.
