Polish special forces? I don't think they need any more polishing, imo they are pretty bling bling. Besides who are you to say they need polishing?! Tell me I demand to know!!!

When the Gulf War began, it was Polish special forces who spirited American diplomats out of Iraq. Since then, the Polish Embassy in Baghdad has had a special section representing American interests in Iraq, as the two countries do not have diplomatic ties.

Polish special forces have carried out several successful missions in the ground campaign in Iraq "without any losses," Prime Minister Leszek Miller said Monday. "Our troops are getting high praise," Miller said in a radio interview in Warsaw. Poland agreed to contribute up to 200 troops, including a logistics vessel and a few dozen members of the elite GROM commando unit, who have been in the Persian Gulf region since last year to support the U.S.-led war against terrorism. Last week, Warsaw sent a unit specializing in the aftermath of chemical warfare. Defense Ministry officials refused to provide details about Polish troops' activities, citing security reasons.

In NATO, Poland may not be America's most important ally, but is certainly its most loyal one. Immediately after the terrorists acts against the World Trade Centre and the Pentagon on September 11, Warsaw organised an international antiterrorist conference, at which the US President was able (by satellite link) to familiarize European politicians with America's position.

you walked into it, I fear, Barba -and in fairness to Lurker, if he hadn't yielded to temptation, Estragon would have done.
More seriously (although I suspect the end of the Warsaw Pact means the Poles haven't got much of a clue about what to do with them, or how to resource them), the Poles have what you'd expect: commando units, naval& diving specialists and Člite paratroop units.
Special ops junkies are well advised to crawl around this
enter it and go to the "Foreign" sections
