Casualties Among Allies Test U.S. Policy in Iraq
http://sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/news/a/2004/04...

"By Tuesday night, the toll from the Shiite fighting included three dead -- one soldier from El Salvador, another from Ukraine and a civilian truck driver from Bulgaria. At least 12 Italians, five Ukrainians, four Bulgarians and two Poles have been wounded.

Those numbers pale alongside American losses -- 417 battle deaths and about 3,000 wounded since the war started in March 2003.

However, coalition partner losses are significant in smaller countries where support for the war has never been as strong as in the United States, Britain or Australia."

1. OK...Who Bugs Out First?
Poland? Britain?

Coalition of the "willing"? Sure sounds great when there's lots of oil money to be made, not so good when it's blood, not oil that's flowing.
