Do they point their guns the right way? The Weekly Standard takes a break from pushing the tax cut to write an interesting piece on Poland's special forces, and their involvement in the Iraq war. The unit, known as GROM, was formed in the early 90s, and drew from a variety of sources: Seals, SAS, Delta. They have mostly seen action in Central Europe, but they played an apparent key role at Umm Qasr. Let's face it, nearly every straight male loves to read, watch and hear about special forces ops (gotta speak the lingo). These guys sound like they could hold their own with the best of them.
