Coalition of the shilling.

Japan is the latest country to withdraw its forces from Iraq. Fear not for our soldiers over there, though, since the Japanese haven't been doing much fighting:
Analysts say only the UK provided a sizeable military force that actually made a difference in operational capability. Contributions from most other countries had more meaning in terms of political support for the US when the Bush administration failed to win enough backing for a second resolution at the UN.
