Support for the invasion and occupation of Iraq included 49 nations, a group that was frequently referred to as the "coalition of the willing." These nations provided combat troops, support troops, and logistical support for the invasion.
Those who opposed the war in Iraq did not regard Iraq's violation of UN resolutions to be a valid case for the war, since no single nation has the authority, under the UN Charter, to judge Iraq's compliance to UN resolutions and to enforce them.
