They say that now as a hedge against Kedwards winning the election. Poland needs to stay close to us. If Bush wins, though, I suspect they will have a change of heart.

The US will have a presence in Iraq until I'm an old man and have grandchildren.

Poland is our staunchest ally. I emailed the Polish Consul in LA last year when I learned that GROM was fighting in Basra, thanking his country. He wrote a very sincere reply.

Typical alarmist headline for something not anywhere near as apocalyptic as the title would lead you to believe. They're pulling out in a year and a half, for Christ's sake.

I wonder when the Brits will withdraw?

Combat_Jack: Can you post the reply from the Polish Embassy, if possible thanks.

The USA will be in Iraq for at least 5 years after true cessation of hostilities. My guess probably for another 10 years.

Britain Sending 1,200 More Troops to Iraq
Monday, September 08, 2003

LONDON  — Britain is sending two additional battalions to Iraq, adding 1,200 troops to its forces on the ground, the Ministry of Defense said Monday.

Britain now has 11,000 troops in the country and British Defense Secretary Geoff Hoon (search) indicated that more troops were likely to be required.

"We will immediately take steps to identify and reduce notice to move for some additional headquarters and units, to allow further deployments as rapidly as possible in response to this accelerating program of work," Hoon said in a written statement to Parliament.

Eleven British troops have died in Iraq since May 1, when President Bush declared major combat operations over. Forty-nine British troops have died in the war in total.

Some 120 servicemen were sent to Iraq from Cyprus over the weekend. The Ministry of Defense said they were included in the 1,200 troops whose deployment was announced Monday.

"This response is not a knee-jerk response to recent attacks. It's part of a strategic plan to achieve the goals I have set out," Prime Minister Tony Blair's official spokesman said.

A rather liberal radio show was talking about this story earlier. They were saying "I hope Edwards hits Cheney with this question tonight since Bush had just mentioned they were our ally." I have to agree, I hope Edwards really does ask Cheney that question. The old man will nail that ambulance chaser to a pole.

I no longer have it, the part I remember best, he said they thought it was right to do, because "we know the pain" of living under a totalitarian regime.

Thats ok. "It's the wrong war at the wrong time", and their contribution is only "window dressing" anyway.

i second that. Americans really do appreciate the British commitment. Same with Australia and I think I speak on behalf of others here that Polands contribution both politically and militarily has been greatly appreciated. I feel Poland is going to be a good ally with growing influence in Europe the next few decades.
