Don't forget about Poland!

Okay, looks like you can forget about Poland:
Polish troops will start to withdraw from Iraq in the New Year and all will be out by the end of 2005, the country's president has promised. Poland is the fourth-largest contributor of troops to the coalition in Iraq - with 2,500 - and there is strong opposition at home to the deployment. President Aleksander Kwasniewski said the Iraq situation would be different after January, when general elections would take place ahead of the creation of a national Government.
That's right, a country contributing 2,500 troops was the fourth-largest member of the coalition. I think Hand County, South Dakota has contributed more troops.
