The body-politic may be willing…

…But how much flesh is another story.

A reminder of which coalition member nations have sent troops into Iraq (link was to http://apnews.excite.com/article/20030926/D7TQ81V00.html):

  • United States: 130,000
  • Britain: 7,400; 1,200 more planned.
  • Italy: 3,000
  • Poland: 2,400
  • Ukraine: 1,640
  • Spain: 1,300
  • Netherlands: 1,106
  • Romania: 600
  • Bulgaria: 480
  • Denmark: 406; 90 more planned for October.
  • Thailand: 400
  • El Salvador: 360
  • Honduras: 360
  • Czech Republic: 312
  • Dominican Republic: 300
  • Hungary: 290
  • Philippines: 177
  • Mongolia: 174
  • Norway: 156
  • Nicaragua: 120
  • Portugal: 120
  • Latvia: 106
  • Lithuania: 90; may send 50 more.
  • Slovakia: 82
  • Albania: 70
  • New Zealand: 61
  • Estonia: 55
  • Macedonia: 28
  • Kazakhstan: 27

Personally, I find it easier to conceptualize something like this with a graphic. However, as you can see, the US troops dwarf everyone else, so here a second chart without the US troop count so you can get a better idea. I’d put thumbnails here, but it makes them too small to see anything of value.
