"We will be there until the end of the year," he told the AP by telephone from France, where he is attending a NATO meeting.

"There is a decision by the president that Polish soldiers will be there until Dec. 31, 2005 - up to 1,700 soldiers plus an additional 700 troops on standby in Poland, and that's how it will be."

It's interesting to note that Poland would be the recipient of a fourth of a $400 million dollar fund proposed by President Bush to reward members and allies of the Coalition.

Occurs they will, Poland is a poor country, they need the "gift" that bush generosity in the name of us the tax payer are going to give to them, meanwhile we will be scrounging for social services here and Medicaid cuts, so we can afford such generosity.

wich the polish can use to retrofit their usa F-16 with AMRAAMS or something, the money will find its way back, scratching backs and such.

Not going to do any good to the social security of American citizens, but actually it might not be a gift to the Polish alone, but rather to Raytheon shareholders.

Most of the current allies are either dupes that don't wnat to admit they got duped, or countries that like the extra money for suppoting the war, and don't car about international politics. Togo for example
