You know you've lost the war

When Lithuania leaves:

President Bush's "coalition of the willing," long seen by much of the world as a shell for a largely U.S. operation in Iraq, is quickly becoming a coalition of the unwilling.

Even as Bush sends more American forces to Baghdad, longtime war ally Tony Blair is pulling out British troops. Denmark is leaving. Lithuania says it may withdraw its tiny 53-troop contingent.

Bush's alliance is breaking up as opposition firms against the U.S. troop buildup - among the American and Iraqi people, in Congress and among Iraq's neighbors and some former U.S. allies.
