On 11 Sept. when terrorist affiliated with al-Qaeda hijacked four jet airliners and then intentionally crashed them into the Twin Towers, Pentagon and Shanksville, we saw that all of America was touched by this huge tragedy. “Enemies of freedom” committed an act of war against your country. We saw the United States of America had to face a new challenge, but the attack on your freedom was also the attack on other democratic countries, so we understood that this terror cannot go unpunished.
Today we are together with you in the common operation in Afghanistan, because we remember the morning of 11 Sept. and wounds to your country inflicted by terrorists from a criminal organization. We are not able to accept such a senseless attack, killing thousands of innocent people, because we will never accept terrorism in the World.
We will remember 11 Sept. It changed our generations and our history. We have realized since that tragedy we are in danger, and we have every reason to be fearful. Because we want things to go back to normal we have to be together against people who try to destroy it.

Polish Military Contingent
For anyone who knows any history you know the Poles are probably people you don’t want to get on the wrong side of. They have a cavalry history going back to when horses were the size of big dogs, they took to armoured warfare like a duck to water, they put more pilots into fighters during WWII than almost the entire Commonwealth, their army pretty much forget to surender – ever – and continued to fight with one of the largest forces fielded during the war. The Polish parachute brigade was regarded as the finest force of its type. The civilians made their military look a bit soft. Ask any German who was in Warsaw.
Currently they evidently exhibit more of a fighting spirit than the world wide MSM would like you know about. And their memories are intact.
