Poland's paranoia is justified.. they were invaded and occupied by both Russia and Europe less than a century ago.
Agree. Was just about to make the same point.

Poland as a country has been getting beat down from all directions for a few hundred years actually.

And Russia has been invaded on Poland on various occasions in it's history, in the 17th century they even managed to occupy Moscow and install their own puppet Tsar for a few years (he would later die a horrible death, that False Dmitry guy, after Russian rebel forces took back the capital and dragged him out of the Kremlin...)

To the Russian Orthodox Church, the Catholics in Poland are one of their most hated historical adversaries...

Living in the past does nobody any favors, my friend...

He is running out the clock because he knows Pelosi wont impeach if its too close to 2020..
That's no reason to allow a criminal/traitor to get away with treason.
They need to immediately rename Nadler's hearing as impeachment inquiry and start to play hardball with these criminals until the entire Trump family and cartel are in prison.

The U.S. is expected to announce Wednesday that it will send about 1,000 additional troops and a squadron of Reaper drones to Poland to beef up the nation’s ability to defend itself amid worries about Russian military activity, U.S. officials said.

The final details were still under discussion Tuesday, but the decision to expand America’s military presence in Poland comes after months of lobbying by Polish leaders who had hoped for a U.S. base in their country.

Officials said Tuesday that the preliminary agreement avoids any permanent U.S. base or presence in the country and sticks instead to a rotational force. There are currently about 4,500 U.S. troops that routinely rotate in and out of Poland.

The new plans call for the construction of a new combat training center in Drawsko Pomorskie and additional facilities in the future. U.S. officials said the Reaper drones will be used to provide greater intelligence to Poland. The U.S. also expects to set up a military headquarters there.

An announcement is expected Wednesday when President Donald Trump meets with Polish President Andrzej Duda at the White House. An aide to Duda has said that negotiations to increase American troops in Poland were successful.

But but PUTIN is Trump's friend. Why would he try and make his friend look bad? Putin likes NATO, thinks it helps him, not hinders him. He's got a wonderful relationship with those under the NATO umbrella. Must be fake news.

How come? Too many Jews? Not the right kind of 'white people'? The wrong religion? Some resource they have under their ground others want? Geography, are they bridge to somewhere else? Too many Polish jokes, people think they really are dumb?
