The Polish pilots stood out during the campaign of 1939 and highlighted during the campaign in France. But the most distinguished role they played in 1940 when the decisive for the fate of the England and the coalition Battle of Britain took place (August 8 – October 31, 1940). The British industry produced enough aircraft but it was not possible to train enough pilots in such a short time. Therefore the role of foreign airmen, of whom the greatest group formed the 151 Polish pilots, cannot be overemphasized. They fought both in the British and Polish squadrons (302 and 303 fighter and 300 and 301 bomber squadrons). During the Battle of Britain the Poles shot down 203 Luftwaffe aircraft which stood for 12% of total German losses in this battle.
Polish army... LOL.. Boy, you sure know how to tell a joke!!!
In all fairness, this is one of your more ignorant positions. The Poles fought against the Wehrmacht with horse cavalry, because it was all they had (Poland had only been independent since 1918 and hadn't the time or the infrastructure to develop modern arms), and resisted until they were overrun. They're brave people who don't warrant your contempt.

Your other points were right on the money, but the Warsaw Ghetto was a case where the Polish resistance deliberately sat on its hands while the Jews fought the Nazis. Unfortunately, there was so much antisemtism in Poland that even the resistance would execute Jews or turn them over. It doesn't change the fact that Poles have fought bravely for us in OIF and OEF, not to mention WWII, but it had to be said.
