But surely your map is deficient, you have not filled in the colours for the war between the USA, the UK and allies and Iraq? It is important that itulip does not follow the administration into denial over that war.

looks like location, and not each and every particpant. NATO countries are also in Afganistan, including Canada and the European countries and they are not colored in. I'd guess that it is the website cited that's responsible, and not itulip.
