This is an unusual turn of events. Just yesterday President Aleksander Kwasniewski said he was pulling troops out of Iraq a few months early. Now after talking with Bush on the phone he's decided to stay there as long as it takes.
WARSAW, Poland — President Aleksander Kwasniewski told President Bush on Friday that Polish troops will stay in Iraq "as long as needed, plus one day longer," his national security adviser said.
The comments came one day after Kwasniewski said Polish troops might leave Iraq months earlier than planned and that Poland had been misled over Iraq's suspected weapons of mass destruction arsenal.
I don't know about y'all but this is very strange. Why change his mind all of the sudden? Do you think Bush threatened him if he pulled his troops out?

Why not. He threatened other nations before we invaded. This would be nothing new...

Like trade sanctions or boycotts? I wouldn't put it past Bush to strongarm in this way. His detractors are pointing out exactly how wrong he was on this, so he's got to keep as many allies as possible.
