Stop calling it a "Coalition"
    #1442709 - 04/09/03 01:15 PM (14 years, 5 months ago)

It's just us, England, and a few guys from Australia in there for the most part. I don't even know why we would count the countries that aren't even fighting in this war part of our "Coalition." If anything, it's an Axis, but of course, that doesn't sound too good, since everyone knows about the "Axis of Evil." Of course, everyone knows this is really our war, and that Britain and Australia are just tagging along. So why don't they just say "U.S. forces" on the news instead of "Coalition forces"? Except in the few cases where they are actually referring to British or Australian troops.

I support the COALITION and what the COALITION stands for. In the future i hope this COALITION can rid the world of those dictators that would oppress its people.

ALL HAIL THE COALITION!!!!!!

What's wrong with calling it a Coalition? Does the dictionary state that a Coalition has to be a grouping of a specific number or higher of groups before it's a coalition?

What's wrong with it is that it gives the impression that there's whole big alliance of a bunch of countries against Iraq, when it's really just mainly us, plus a few Brits and Australians.

Yes the number has to be 4 or more- I propose we call it "The group of four random countries picked from a hat from different points on the globe for the point of killing Saddam in order to free the people of Iraq and kill everyone else that does not think people should be free". Okay I know its a little lengthy but we should call it this or maybe just coalition. Jesus WTF is your point?

But it isn't just Amerika.

No group of allied forces will ever be equally matched in numbers. It really isn't likely.

ATTN Everyone: I won't be responding to any more replies on this thread because I decided it's really not anything worth arguing about.
