Polish President Slams Kerry After Debate Snub

Polish President Aleksander Kwasniewski has slammed Dem president hopeful John Kerry for not recognizing Poland's contributions and sacrifice to the war in Iraq.

"It is sad that a senator with 20 years of experience does not recognize Polish contribution. This is immoral" - Polish President Aleksander Kwasniewski told FACTS in an interview commenting on the US Presidential Debate.

"It is sad that a senator with 20 years of experience underestimates Polish sacrifice, this is sad" - that's how president Aleksander Kwasniewski commented the fragment of the televised debate between George Bush and John Kerry, during which the Democrats' candidate did not recognize the Polish contribution to the coalition fighting terror. 

The President added however that one should consider this was a part of the ongoing electoral campaign.

"I do not think this was out of ignorance - the president emphasized on the TVN Facts. - There is one thing which should be stated clearly: this coalition is not just the United States, Great Britain, Australia alone; it also involves participation of Polish, Ukrainian, Bulgarian and Spanish soldiers who have died. It is immoral not to recognize the involvement we contributed based on our conviction that there should be unity in fighting terrorism, that there was a need to display international solidarity and that Saddam Hussein was a dangerous individual of this world".

"President Bush acted like a real Texan gentleman - he made sure to show appreciation for other countries' involvement in the coalition" - Kwasniewski pointed out.


  • This is more evidence how much of a coalition builder John Kerry WILL NOT be. It seems the only countries Kerry wants in the coalition are countries that are currently not in the coalition. He praises France and Germany (not in the coalition) and rips the Interim Prime Minister of Iraq and the Polish President (part of the coalition.) He also has his sister in Australia (in the coalition)campaigning against the re-election of John Howard. What a great plan for a building a coalition? Belittle the countries you have on your side and and get cozy with the countries who have not faught and said they will not fight even if Kerry is elected President(France and Germany.) This is John Kerry's great plan for a unified coalition. As long as we have France and Germany on our side we will have passed the "global test." I don't give a damn what France and Germany think. They weren't attacked on 9/11 and have 3000 of their citizens slaughtered. Thousands of Americans died freeing those countries from Adolf Hitler and the only thing we asked for was land to bury our dead soldiers. When we are attacked and ask for their help, what do they do? They slap us in the face. So no I don't give a damn what they think. And the idea that John Kerry is relying on these countries to help fight the war on terror is totally assinine and we will in no way be safer with John Kerry as President.

  • i didn't reallt put too much thought in it because after Bush mentioned that Heinz forgot about Poland, everyone watching the debate in the lobby of my dorm was laughing, but whodeani is right. We should show appreciation, no matter how much they helped.
