This profound Fisking of Algore from One Hand Clapping. Although it is a shame he has ignored the commitment of Australia to the war on Iraq.
we do have a coalition in place for action against Saddam. Great Britain is obviously on board. So are Qatar and Kuwait. Turkey is supporting US military operations in the area now. Reports have said that Jordan has agreed at least to limited US operations from its soil. Israel will not openly ally with the US militarily, but intelligence sharing between the US and Israel is continuous and deep.
What makes a coalition? Three nations? Ten? Forty? What gets Al's goat is not the lack of a coalition, because there is a coalition. For Al, the coalition is made up of the wrong people.

But he’s on the money in questioning just what the hell a coalition actually is.
