Poland Mercenaries in Libya

vaiz  
25 Sep 2011  #1

Poland's Defence Ministry is looking into reports that among 300 to 500 European mercenaries currently fighting for money on behalf of the Gaddafi regime in Libya are a 'significant amount' of Polish helicopter experts.

EUobserver reports that most of the European mercenaries come from Eastern Europe or the Balkans, including Belarusians, Serbians and Ukrainians, all working for several thousand US dollars a day.

I'd go to Libya for that much too.

------

Nice; Blackwater Mercenaries posing as Poles? LOL

------

Yupp. Couldn't find any nice pictures of Polish mercenary ;)

------

Neo nazi - The NOP banner for starters; colors, iconography... not exactly something one associates with the green party youth division...

------

I wonder how many Poles actually went there.

Anyone knows if Grom had any mission in Libya?

------

Wow a couple of thousand $$ / day!! I'd do it for sure, I'd be quite an adventure too.

------

The losing side always pays better money.....but the result of being on the loosing side can be pretty unpleasant....

------

These mercenaries will flee the country before their side loses. They know the situation on the ground better than anyone else.

------

If this happens to be the case they should be tried in a criminal court of law. This would also kinda turn the "for your Freedom and ours" idea on its head.

------

Isn't the autor of the report British?

------

So Serbia is in "Eastern Europe"? In what way? The "report" also mentions that among those alleged mercenaries are Russians (Russkies). Why doesn't David-the Russian mention this?
:)

------

How about the picture David the Russki included in his post - does it show the alleged Polish mercenaries in Libya? Can David prove it does? Where did David got it from? From the KGB?

------

Polish media are rerporting that mercenaries fighting in defence of the Gaddafi regime in Libya include Poles and Serbians.

------

There seems a supporting slavic alliance to Gadaffi.Polish,Belarus,Russian and serbian mercenaries.Slavs united very difficult for the rebels to prevail.

------

Why would the bellarussian secret police be involved you paranoid loon?

------

All these are tough nuts and seriously underestimated.A veteran Serb from Bosnia war or a Russian who has fought in Chcechenia has military value way higher than any untrained rebel.

------

That might happen if they get caught. They could end up in Gitmo getting waterboarded.

Why not some Polish ex-soldiers who got their training from the US Marines!

------

Polish are always good.They have fought in all major wars in the last 200 years. And that makes me depressed...

------

The "Polish media" you're referring to - the Polskie radio dla zagranicy - seem to be a bunch of Polonophobes scribbling in at times bad English. Do you consider such individuals a reliable source? Hehe, they brag that the Economist has praised them for their news, but shouldn't the praise from the Polonophobic rag make one suspect the "Polish" news they fabricate is Polonophobic too?

------

Yeah, plenty Slavic forces in there. I can't imagine Polish mercenaries being there, tbh. Maybe there are some livewires that want to earn some extra cash but it just doesn't strike me as being a correct story.
