Ok, I accept the fact that the US and UK wish to depose Saddam Hussain, and stand to gain a lot off the occupation of Iraq, particularly oil and strategic influence in the region. My question is what do other countries have to gain through supporting the attack? What do Italy and Spain in particular gain from it, these days not being aggresively hunting global influence? Do the eastern European countries support the war only to demonstrate their relationship with the US? What do Qatar, the UAE, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey stand to gain? I read somewhere even Japan is sending support forces to the Persian Gulf. Am I missing anybody? Anyway, I'm interesting to hear your opinions and logic, but not your flame-baits please.
