Supporting Estonia

The US House of Representatives has unanimously passed a resolution supporting the position of the Estonian government in the Bronze Soldier crisis.

While essentially symbolic, the resolution is important as a way of showing Putin and his regime that the West will not be cowed by his belligerent rhetoric. This is especially true since it passed unanimously and came from the Democratic-dominated House (rather than from, for example, the Bush administration, which has severely lost credibility and clearly represents only a portion of the American people).

If only the Senate would show as much respect for the sovereignty of the US as the House has for Estonia's.
