I think the US itself was part of the 12. I think the other two were Bulgaria and Romania. The "support" is not so substantial. I am resident in Lithuania where it is hard to find anyone who supports the war save one or two politicians- but this has no factual backing. Their troops are tied up in Afghanistan so they have offered to send military doctors from what I gather. Romania and Bulgaria are still nervous without US ratification of their NATO membership. It is rumoured that Kwasnieski (Polish PM) wants to be the next secretary general of NATO. While being possibly misrepresented, few are overly upset at having "international importance" for a change and having an image other than that of merely ex-Soviet or Eastern European Communist leaning states. (Again this comes largely from talking to people and politicians here, not from opinion polls). I am a little disappointed. Please correct me if wrong on the full list. Thanks and best, Andy Hagan.
