The latest results:
Italy: Indicted 31 Americans for the grab and snatch grab of a Muslim cleric.
Germany: Issued arrest warrants for 13 Americans in connection with the rendition program.
Russia: Attacked American unilateralism at a meeting of the heavies.
England: Refused to match the US troop surge in Iraq.
France: Admitted that a nuclear Iran poses no threat to Israel or its neighbors.
