Only 4 governments have sent troops: US, UK, Australia (2000) and Poland (a handful of special forces). And depends on what you mean by *countries* - I say *governments* as opposed to countries because most people in most countries are against the war. For instance it is said that Spain supports the invasion (hardly *war*) but 90% of the population is against the war. So could you say with any degree of accuracy that Spain is for the "war"? I think we make a grave error in allowing them to frame the debate. >I am writing a song and the number would fit >nicely into it.
