All about the medals: Say it ain't so! 

After Friday's action, the unofficial results:

Coalition of the Willing: 411
Legion of the Unwilling: 369

On a pro forma basis:

Pro Forma Willing: 387
Pro Forma Unwilling: 393

The Legion of the Unwilling narrowed the gap as Syria, Egypt, Iran, and others medaled, bringing them close enough to pull ahead on a pro forma basis. As is often the case in matters of international relations, a lot can swing on one or two countries. In this case, Spain is the swing that determines who leads this race.

We certainly must hope that the outcome of the war on terror is not as dependent upon Spain's allegiance.
