Don’t Forget Poland!

Oops. Go ahead and forget them after all. They’re officially pulling out of Iraq (the entirety of their 1,700-strong contingent of soldiers) by the end of the year.

So where, exactly, does that leave Bush’s stellar Coalition of the Willing? Well, Poland was the fourth highest coalition contributor with their 1,700 troops, behind Italy’s 3,200, who will also be gone by the end of the year, South Korea’s 3,600, and Britain’s 12, 500 (which is soon to be reduced by 2,000). Every other country remaining in the coalition is contributing fewer troops than we’ve lost.
