And so have those in Eastern Europe.

So who's missing?
South Korea pledged on Saturday to dispatch additional troops to Iraq and to send $200 million to help rebuild the country in a plan that bolsters U.S. efforts to establish a broader coalition...

The decision on Friday came after months of hand-wringing on the issue by Roh, whose decision appeared to be heavily influenced by the unanimous adoption this week of a U.N. Security Council resolution on Iraq. The resolution called for the establishment of a multinational force led by the United States, and appealed to U.N. members to provide troops and money to help support the occupation of Iraq.

The decision also follows a pledge by Japan to send a small contingent of troops and $1.5 billion for the reconstruction of Iraq.
