Poland's prime minister-designate, Donald Tusk, suggested in remarks published Wednesday that his government would seek to end the nation's four-year military mission in Iraq next year. Poland, a staunch US ally, sent combat troops to the 2003 war in Iraq and still has some 900 soldiers stationed there, despite public displeasure with the mission. Polish troops now primarily train Iraqi forces and renovate schools and hospitals. "We want to finish the mission in this form in 2008," Tusk was quoted by the Polska daily as saying. He did not elaborate.
