Then today, I see this:
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.
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.
