Poland held its breath as it watched the recent EU summit, because alongside the usual debates and disputes over EU policy, Brussels became the arena of a clash between the Polish prime minister and president. The Polish delegation managed to come up with a uniform stance and EU leaders adopted decisions favorable to Warsaw. But on returning home, Prime Minister Donald Tusk said he would shortly ask the Constitutional Tribunal to decide once and for all who is supposed to be in charge of Polish foreign policy and how the powers of the president and prime minister should be divided. President Lech Kaczyński, in turn, said he would attend the next EU summit in December.

After over five years, Polish troops have completed their mission in Iraq. The stabilization mission has failed to bring stability to a country torn by civil war, nor has it provided Poland with the economic benefit it anticipated. Still, according to politicians, it has allowed Polish soldiers to gain valuable experience, and that will now be a key factor in a drive to modernize Polish armed forces.

The Polish national soccer team has taken its supporters on a roller coaster ride from euphoria to despair.

The defeat has made qualifying for the 2010 World Cup finals much harder.
