Poor Eritrea

A one-time member of the "coalition of the willing:"

Eritrea is one of the poorest, most war-torn countries in the world. I call the embassy to ask how it intends to show its support of the US and coalition of the willing, of which it is a member? There is a long, stunned pause before the spokeswoman says: "Can you call back tomorrow morning?"

Is being thanked for all of its service by likely being designated a state sponsor of terrorism.
