especially for lemur68ski- [Oct. 4th, 2004|08:40 pm]
Just me.
someone had this domain registered and had a barebones site up a day after the US Presidental debate:

http://www.youforgotpoland.com/

Then today, I see this:
http://news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/afp/20041004/wl_mideast_afp/iraq_poland_troops_041004215232

Poland said that it aims to withdraw all of its 2,500 troops from Iraq during the course of next year, a major disappointment for Washington which sees Warsaw as one of its staunchest allies in Iraq.

Whoops.

Poland will not be mocked (this means you, Jon Stewart!)

One site I found suggested that Italy had more troops in Iraq (3000, as opposed to Poland's 2460) than Poland- why didn't Bush bring up Italy instead of Poland? Other than Kasimir Pulaski (thank you, Big Black), I don't usually associate Poland with military strength, whereas Italy has Mussolini and all those Roman guys.

I've been waiting for Bush to blame Kerry for Poland's decision to withdraw it's troops. Obviously they must have been offended by Kerry forgetting them.
