Costa Rica says it wants reference of Iraq invasion support erased from Web

SAN JOSE, Costa Rica – Costa Rica wants its name erased from the list of countries supporting the invasion of Iraq. But the United States says that's not possible.
The Costa Rican government initially supported the invasion, but public sentiment was never strong and polls show now that most Costa Ricans oppose the war.

Opponents of the fighting took the name issue to the country's Supreme Court, which ruled the references to support should be removed.

While the U.S. government removed the Central American nation from the list of the so-called “coalition of the willing” in 2004, it still appears in archive documents and on related Internet Web sites that haven't been updated.
