Not exactly:

The Coalition of the Willing

Just one day after announcing a 48-hour ultimatum for Saddam Hussein to leave Iraq, President Bush once again has been criticized for "unilateralism." On the contrary, a large, and growing, number of countries have decided to join a "coalition of the willing" to liberate Iraq.

Secretary of State Colin Powell on Tuesday announced that, "We now have a Coalition of the Willing that includes some 30 nations who publicly said they could be included in such a listing," Powell said, "and there are 15 other nations, for one reason or another, who do not wish to be publicly named but will be supporting the coalition."

Furthermore, several other countries not mentioned by Sec. Powell have publicly offered either political or military support for the war (see list).

To date, there are 54 countries that have joined the Coalition of the Willing--not including Canada, Germany, and France, which have recently offered conditional support. This does not include all of the 15 nations that have support. The number of nations to date already eclipses the 1991 Gulf War coalition, which had 38 countries. offered quiet

We had a logical reason. You just missed it.
And what 'logical' reason was that. It was supposed to be to enforce relevant UNSC council demands with regard to WMD and protect the national security of the US. The bombing and invasion was for neither of those reasons.
