For Immediate Release March 21, 2003 http://www.whitehouse.gov/news/releases/2003/03/20030321-4.html Coalition Members Who are the current coalition members? President Bush is assembling a Coalition that has already begun military operations to disarm Iraq of its weapons of mass destruction, and enforce 17 UNSC resolutions. The Coalition will also liberate the Iraqi people from one of the worst tyrants and most brutal regimes on earth. Contributions from Coalition member nations range from: direct military participation, logistical and intelligence support, specialized chemical/biological response teams, over-flight rights, humanitarian and reconstruction aid, to political support. Forty-eight countries are publicly committed to the Coalition, including: Afghanistan Albania Angola Australia Azerbaijan Bulgaria Colombia Costa Rica Czech Republic Denmark Dominican Republic El Salvador Eritrea Estonia Ethiopia Georgia Honduras Hungary Iceland Italy Japan Kuwait Latvia Lithuania Macedonia Marshall Islands Micronesia Mongolia Netherlands Nicaragua Palau Panama Philippines Poland Portugal Romania Rwanda Singapore Slovakia Solomon Islands South Korea Spain Turkey Uganda Ukraine United Kingdom United States Uzbekistan This number is still growing, and it is no accident that many member nations of the Coalition recently escaped from the boot of a tyrant or have felt the scourge of terrorism. All Coalition member nations understand the threat Saddam Hussein's weapons pose to the world and the devastation his regime has wreaked on the Iraqi people. * The population of Coalition countries is approximately 1.23 billion people. * Coalition countries have a combined GDP of approximately $22 trillion. * Every major race, religion, ethnicity in the world is represented. * The Coalition includes nations from every continent on the globe. Hi, Does someone know how many countries signed on (or were bribed) to back the bush administration on the war? I am writing a song and the number would fit nicely into it. Thanks, Russ Long Island, New York _______________________________________________ Sent via the discussion list of the Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq.
