The greatest coalition ever assembled in human history?

Over the weekend I was wondering how many nations were still in Iraq and how many troops they had stationed over there to help "us" out, but wasn't able to find anything with the search terms that I was using. Finally, I gave up trying to either find the perfect wording or look through the 30,000 results that invariably came up, so I contacted a friendly and helpful staff sergeant from the Coalition Press Information Center and, after being redirected, found the information for which I was looking.

The result turned out to be essentially what I expected: a few nations with several thousand troops stationed in Iraq, followed by a score of nations with a couple hundred there. Here are the number of non-American troops in Iraq, broken down by nationality.

Something tells me that this is no longer, if it ever had been, the "greated coalition ever assembled as human history as Rumsfeld so chirpily asserted not so long ago.

There are just under 24,000 non-American (and non-Iraqi) troops stationed in Iraq. These troops belong to 28 different countries. The top 5 countries have about 19,535 troops there, while the bottom 23 countries have only about 4,365. Norway has 10 troops there while Moldova is pushing the envelope with 12.

Now, I think the Iraqi elections are the best thing to come out of this whole mess and I certainly wish that the Bush administration hadn't alienated the majority of the world by his brash actions and harsh honcho-speak. But hey...at least there's Poland, right?
