What About Poland?? 

Somehow we knew that one day it would come to this:

Poland will withdraw its troops from Iraq at the end of 2005, when the mandate of the UN multinational stabilisation force in the country expires, Defence Minister Jerzy Szmajdzinski said Tuesday.

"When the UN mandate in Iraq expires, the Polish stabilisation mission must also end," Szmajdzinski told reporters after a cabinet meeting.

"The government adopted this position after examining the political situation in Iraq and the advances made in building Iraq's own security force, as well as (after examining) our own capacity," Szmajdzinski said.
