The list of countries in the Coalition of the Willing is particularly interesting because of the patterns it doesn't produce, and the under-reported patterns it does.

 The Coalition - SourceWatch
See the Coalition of the willing article for the specific issues and rhetoric surrounding the Iraq invasion and the use of the term The Coalition in the context of that one operation.
It is widely believed that the use of Coalition labels and rhetoric are very deliberate, masking a policy of unilateralism to appear as multilateralism.
The reality is that this Coalition is nothing like the Allies of World War II, from which the basic rhetoric is drawn: in that war large nations like the USSR and China, a much larger British Empire and a great many troops from captive nations like France and Poland participated.

 Iraq Coalition - Non-US Forces in Iraq
The size and capabilities of the Coalition forces involved in operations in Iraq has been a subject of much debate, confusion, and at times exageration.

 White House scraps coalition of the willing list. 22/01/2005. ABC News Online
The White House has scrapped its list of Iraq allies known as the coalition of the willing, which Washington used to back its argument that the 2003 invasion was a multilateral action.
The coalition, unveiled on the eve of the invasion, consisted of 30 countries that publicly offered support for the United States and another 15 that did not want to be named as part of the group.
Former coalition member Costa Rica withdrew last September under pressure from voters who opposed the government's decision to back the invasion.

So far, the "coalition of the willing" is a rather modest and eclectic group -- perhaps enough for Rumsfeld to speak of a broad coalition, but, save for Britain's contribution, of little consequence militarily and hardly comparable to the coalition assembled by the United States during the last Gulf War.
The "coalition of the willing" may not be quite as "substantial" as Secretary Rumsfeld would have it, but for an American administration seemingly determined to follow through on its policy, it will have to do.
