The Coalition of the Unwilling expands

More problems for Bush (and therefore, for all of us): Several more countries in his "Coalition of the Willing" are planning to pull their troops from Iraq. Following the lead of former Coalition members Spain, the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, Honduras, the Phillipines, and Norway, these countries have announced plans to withdraw within the next few months:

Hungary (300 troops), Poland (2,400 troops), the Netherlands (1,400 troops), New Zealand (60 engineers), and Thailand (450 troops).

Three other countries plan to reduce their contingents of troops: Singapore (from 191 to 333), Moldova (from 42 to 12), and Bulgaria (from 483 to 430).

Things must be going much better in Iraq, if all those countries are pulling out...right?
