Poland's military mission in Iraq may take a more "offensive" character, the president said Thursday. Polish military commanders in Iraq say their troops, which have been concentrating on rebuilding missions and security patrols, have come under increasing insurgent attacks. "Our base has recently come under frequent fire, and as a result there may be a need to change the character (of the mission) to a more offensive one," President Lech Kaczynski said, adding that he was not considering sending more troops. "If somebody thinks that this way they will drive Poles away, they are very wrong," he said.
