Coalition of the dwindling.

The day after 10,000 peace activists rallied in London and 300,000 demonstrated against the Iraq war in Washington, the British government announced plans to begin withdrawing troops from Iraq in May, a move that will likely force Japan to withdraw its 550 soldiers as well. As the US' biggest ally joins a long list of "Coalition of the Willing" members who've jumped ship, let's recall Bush's comment from the presidential debate with John Kerry: "You forgot Poland." Oh yeah, they're hoping to complete their troop pullout by the end of the year, according to GlobalSecurity.org.
