I do not understand this statement at all. With the level of communications and travel we have today, why do you believe this?
China is powerful, however I was talking about the nations from the Democratic world. You don't wanna provoke China. Would you feel the same and support China if they attack Iraq? Please don't draw the "human rights" card with China. They want the oil just as bad. They just don't throw a smoke grenade into the political fray.
If you believe we invaded Iraq for the oil, why did we not just keep it in 1991? Take Kuwait's?

Countries that are sticking around (probably because Bush would have a hissy fit if they did pull out)
South Korea: 2,300 ! Hmmm wonder why so many from this country
El Salvador: 380
Czech Republic: 100
Bosnia & Herzegovina: 37
Let China get in there. They will throw 1.5 million troops in there and clean it up real good! ..........Joking aside....... See where this war is heading? Call them all quitters if you want. Bottom line, this is the right way this war should be heading.
Do you mean that the unilateral US invasion of Iraq has actually been supported by 38 other nations?
What do think the repercussions for Iraq and the West if the coalition forces pulled out tomorrow?
