    For all of those whining about the US's "unilateral" war in Iraq, here is a list of the Coalition of the Willing .

    Note that even without Spain and Honduras, who are pulling out of Iraq, the US still has 32 partners with troops in Iraq, and 20 other partners that do not have troops in Iraq.

    About what percentage of all the troops and money do those countries contribute to the effort in Iraq? You can even combine them if you want to.

    What percentage of the coalition do the UK and US make up?
    99.9%? Or is it higher?

    Approximately 15.8% of all troops in Iraq are not Americans. I don't know what that is relative to GDP, military strengths of all coalition partners, etc. But, after all, we are leading this whole war!

    1) USA 130,000
    2) United Kingdom 9,000
    3)Italy 3,000
    4) Poland 2,460
    5) Ukraine 1,600
    7) Netherlands 1,100

    I could not find the troop numbers for south korea but I thought that it was around 6 to 8 thousand. They are adding another 3k soon.

    Here's a better question for those who belittle the contributions of others:

    How many troops were Italy, Poland, Ukraine, et cetera, required to send to Iraq?

    Absolutely none.

    What a splendid point!:clap:

    Let us not forget Albania, who recently stated they would send more troops to replace the Spainards and Hondurans.

    It really turns my stomach when I here liberals call these people "window dressing". Why doesn't Kerry and his cronies go to the family of the executed Italian soldier (who is a real war hero) and say that crap to them?

    Yes multilaterialism only if France and Germany are involved. Nevermind these 32 other countries because they arent important enough.
