Kerry is either unaware of the countries that supported the war to topple Saddam, is aware but does not feel these countries are important enough to be counted, or Kerry just believes that the American press won't point out the members of the Coalition of the Willing. First, what Kerry said:
They looked to force before exhausting diplomacy," Kerry said in the speech text. "They bullied when they should have persuaded. They have gone it alone when they should have assembled a team. They have hoped for the best when they should have prepared for the worst. In short, they have undermined the legacy of generations of American leadership. And that is what we must restore.
Should have assembled a team, eh? What about
Do these countries not count? Does Kerry not know of the amount of foreign support there was for this war? Maybe Kerry is just relying on the fact that the Press has been unwilling to mention the amount of nations who have pledged support. Get the word out on this one: America Did NOT go it alone. Lets stop liars
like John Waffles
Kerry from overlooking our allies. Here is more info on the Coalition:

Every major race, religion, ethnicity in the world is represented.
The Coalition includes nations from every continent on the globe.
The only way we will win the war over public opinion is to get the truth out to the voters. Do your part as well! If you don't have a weblog... Email this story to your friends!
