Poland set to leave Iraq


Recommended Posts

Yeah I read the article but no I wasnt able to foresee what tonyi's response might be.


Other NATO officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said Monday that the Polish announcement showed that groupings like the so-called coalition of the willing in Iraq could not be sustained.


Szmajdzinski's announcement is likely to win wide support among a population increasingly critical of Poland's involvement. Nowak said that more than 80 percent of Poles now wanted the troops brought home. Seventeen Poles have died in Iraq.


Szmajdzinski's announcement surprised Poland's allies inside NATO and even its own diplomats.



Once the troops are withdrawn, South Korea will be the third-largest contributor of soldiers to Iraq.
