Via DRUDGE REPORT: "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,' 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.'
The Polish 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."
