Remember how Poland was worried about how Russia would react if it went along with the missle defense sheild and they were given assurances by the US Government, despite whoever the President was at the time, that we would not leave them in a lurch ...
" Poland, which has strained relations with both countries [Russia and Belarus], was cast as the "potential aggressor".
The documents state the exercises, code-named "West", were officially classified as "defensive" but many of the operations appeared to have an offensive nature.
The Russian air force practised using weapons from its nuclear arsenal, while in the Russian enclave of Kaliningrad, which neighbours Poland, Red Army forces stormed a "Polish" beach and attacked a gas pipeline.
The operation also involved the simulated suppression of an uprising by a national minority in Belarus – the country has a significant Polish population which has a strained relationship with authoritarian government of Belarus. "
and then President Obama down sized it and the Russians were all giggly in the corner and the Polish people were like 'um' .... And remembered how Obama assured them that Russia didn't have any issues with them and all would be fine??
Look ahead for a re-occupation of Poland and for Obama to sit back and go - "who could have predicted this happening" ....
um, anyone who knows World History? It seems like Poland is always being over-ran -- what is with that??
