Condensed version

The Washington Post blasts France and Germany for their unilateral campaign against NATO and the United Nations.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer sees the NATO flap over protecting Turkey as confirmation that the Cold War-era alliance has indeed lost its purpose for existence.

In a meandering editorial, the Dayton Daily News credits the French and Germans with “sincerity” in their position, argues Bush’s war talk may have forced in Saddam a change of heart, and finally lands squarely on the fence, saying whether it is force or containment, we should do it with allies.

In the Detroit News, George Weeks attempts to decipher Sen. Carl Levin’s position on Iraq.

Across the hall in the Detroit Free Press, Arsalan Tariq Iftikhar of the Council on American-Islamic Relations says the heightened terror alert is not to protect against terrorism, but to attack Islam itself.
