Poor Senator Kerry

PAUL over at Wizbang discovered this devastating news for Kerry:

French and German government officials say they will not significantly
increase military assistance in Iraq even if John Kerry, the Democratic
presidential challenger, is elected on November 2.

Now, one could make the argument "old" Europe wants Kerry to win, or one could make the argument they are neutral, or with statements like the ones released in the referenced article three days prior to the first debate which is to focus on national security, they want Bush to win. Or maybe they are all drunk and have no idea what they have said until they wake up in the morning and read it in the papers. Either way, they are doing no favors for Mr. Kerry. If Kerry's reaction to the Allawi speech wasn't the final blow this has got to be.
