Default Poland Is Preparing For A Potential Russian Invasion

As Vladimir Putin’s Russia continues to threaten Ukraine after stealing Crimea in the spring and exerting de facto Kremlin control over much of the Donbas this summer, war worries are mounting on NATO’s eastern frontier.

New reports of Russian troop movements on the Ukrainian border this week are not reassuring to those Atlantic Alliance members who suffered Soviet occupation for decades, and still live in Moscow’s neighborhood.

Neither are Russian air force incursions into Western airspace calming nerves with their reborn Cold War antics: yesterday, NATO fighters intercepted no less than nineteen Russian combat aircraft, including several heavy bombers.

No NATO countries are more worried about Kremlin aggression than the Baltic states, with their small militaries and lack of strategic depth — countries that are frankly indefensible in any conventional sense without significant and timely Alliance assistance.

But Poland is the real issue when it comes to defending NATO’s exposed Eastern frontier from Russian aggression.

Only Poland, which occupies the Alliance’s central front, has the military power to seriously blunt any Russian moves westward. As in 1920, when the Red Army failed to push past Warsaw, Poland is the wall that will defend Central Europe from any westward movement by Moscow’s military.

To their credit — and thanks to a long history of understanding the Russian mentality better than most NATO and EU members — Warsaw announced a revised national security strategy emphasizing territorial defense this past fall, a point when the violent theft of Crimea was still just a Kremlin dream.

Eschewing future American-led overseas expeditions like those to Iraq and Afghanistan that occupied Poland’s Ministry of Defense (MoD) during the post-9/11 era, this new doctrine makes defending Poland from Eastern aggression the main job of its military.

Presciently, then-Foreign Minister Radek Sikorski, contradicting optimistic European and NATO presumptions of our era that conventional war in Europe was unthinkable, stated in May 2013, “I’m afraid conflict in Europe is imaginable.”

Particularly in light of the fact that both NATO and the Obama administration rejected my advice to seriously bolster Alliance defenses in the East with four heavy brigades, including the two brigades that Warsaw explicitly asked NATO — meaning, in practice, the United States — for after this year’s Russo-Ukrainian War began in earnest, the issue of Poland’s military readiness is of considerable importance to countries far beyond its borders.

Instead of creating a militarily viable NATO tripwire that would deter Russian aggression, the Alliance, and Washington, DC, have opted for symbolic gestures — speeches, military visits, small exercises — that impress the Western media, but not the Russians.
Could Poland Resist Russia?

Simply put: Can Poland defend itself if Putin decides to move his aggression westward? Even if NATO rides to the rescue, as they would be required to under Article 5 — and that is now an “if” question to many in Warsaw — will the Polish military be able to buy sufficient time for the Alliance to come to its aid?

Notwithstanding that Poland (and Estonia) are the only “new NATO” members that take their Alliance obligations fully seriously, spending more than the required two percent of GDP on defense — a standard almost all longstanding NATO members can’t manage to meet — there are serious doubts about the ability of Poland’s armed forces to defend against a major Russian move to the West.

There is good news.

When it comes to resisting what I term Special War — that shadowy amalgam of espionage, terrorism, and subversion at which the Kremlin excels — Warsaw, with its long acquaintance with sneaky Russian games, is probably better equipped than almost any NATO country to deter and defeat Putin’s secret offensive.

The recent arrests of two Polish agents of Russian military intelligence (GRU), one of them a Polish military officer assigned to the MoD, sent a clear message to Moscow that Special War will be met with aggressive counterintelligence.

When it comes to conventional defense, however, the news from Poland appears less rosy. Despite the fact that no one questions the basic competence of the Polish armed forces, nor the impressiveness of their current defense acquisition program, there is the matter of size.

The recent MoD announcement that it is moving thousands of troops closer to the country’s borders with Belarus and Ukraine, where any threat would emerge, is encouraging but not sufficient (thanks to the Cold War, when Poland’s Communist military was directed westward, most of its major military bases are closer to Germany than they are to the East).

Since the abandonment of conscription five years ago, a cumbersome process that caused readiness problems for some time, Warsaw’s armed forces come to only 120,000 active duty troops, with less than 48,000 in the ground forces (i.e. the army). That number is insufficient to man the army’s structure of three divisions with thirteen maneuver brigades (ten of them armored or mechanized).

A solution to this manpower shortfall was supposed to be found in the establishment of the National Reserve Forces (NSR), with 20,000 fully trained part-time volunteers who would flesh out the order of battle in a crisis.

Yet the NSR, which was announced by the MoD five years ago with much fanfare, has had considerable teething problems, with shortages of recruits and inadequate training budgets. Recent reports indicate both morale and readiness are low among NSR soldiers, who feel poorly treated by the regular military, while none dispute that the force has only recruited and trained 10,000 troops, half the target figure.

Quality can compensate for deficient quantity to an extent, and Poland’s recent acquisition of more late-model Leopard II tanks from Germany, adding to the 124 it already has, means they will be able to replace most of their Soviet-model legacy armor, and meet any Russian incursion on an equal footing in terms of quality, if not quantity.

By approximately 2020, the air force will have wholly replaced its Soviet-era helicopters, buying 150 modern airframes, while the MoD plans to purchase thirty-two late-model attack helicopters by 2022, which would pose a significant threat to Russian armor.
The "Polish Fangs"

More interesting still are plans taking shape to give Warsaw asymmetric deep-strike capabilities to resist Russian aggression. The navy and the army intend to acquire long-range missiles to counter superior Russian numbers, but the cornerstone of the deterrence concept called “Polish Fangs” by Warsaw is the AGM-158 Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile (JASSM), to be carried by the air force’s F-16 fleet (the wing of forty-eight F-16’s is the backbone of Polish airpower).

Combined with drones and Poland’s excellent special operations forces, which are among the best in NATO, Warsaw believes that the American JASSM on the American F-16 will give them an important qualitative advantage over the Russians, including the ability to precisely hit targets up to 370 kilometers behind enemy lines.
Yet even the most optimistic forecasts predict that “Polish Fangs” will not be fully operational for three more years — five seems a more realistic estimate — so there is the pressing matter of deterring Putin’s rising aggression right now.

To provide additional deterrence, Warsaw is taking the remarkable step of creating home guard forces to harass the Russians in the event of occupation, a condition that Poles are only too familiar with. Unlike Ukraine, Poland plans to be prepared should Putin opt for war.
The Creation Of A Home Army

Ever since Moscow’s aggression against Kiev became overt in the spring, the Polish MoD began quietly standing up volunteer forces to bolster the armed forces, should the Russians come again. Word of this became public this week with a story in the Polish edition of Newsweek that details what’s been going on behind the scenes.


Building on shooting clubs that exist all over the country, possessing several hundred thousand members, the MoD has been supporting the establishment of paramilitary units that would bolster the army if needed. Their intent would be to counter Russian irregulars, GRU’s “little green men” that caused such havoc in Crimea a few months ago.

How many volunteers have already been enrolled is unclear, though it’s evident that the number far exceeds the 10,000 belonging to the NSR.

In late September, and explicitly invoking the legendary Home Army (Armia Krajowa — AK) that resisted Nazi occupation in the Second World War, the first volunteer unit was sworn in at Świdnik, near the eastern border, with modest public fanfare, despite the fact that the MoD considers the existence of this new shadow army to be officially classified.

Advocates of the reborn Home Army speak of finding 100,000 volunteers soon, but that seems a rather long-term goal.

While this project has attracted the support of some Polish right-wingers — the sort who tend to join rifle clubs — its MoD manager is Major General Bogusław Pacek, the director of the National Defense Academy, a veteran of Poland’s Cold War Communist military not known for dirigiste views. Pacek’s quiet enthusiasm for a new Home Army has been noted and it can be expected that before long “AK 2.0″ may constitute more than a nuisance to any invader.

This begs the question of why Poland, a leading member of the Atlantic Alliance, thinks it needs to worry about an actual Russian invasion.

In the first place, the Poles have been invaded and occupied by Moscow too many times over the centuries, including twice during the last one, to think this is just a fantasy. Putin’s harsh and threatening language gets more attention in Warsaw than just about anywhere else.
Doubting NATO

The Poles also understand that Article 5 only works as a deterrent if everyone understands that NATO will actually go to war to defend a member under threat. Here, again, recent history gives room for doubt.

All of Europe was happy to sit back and watch Poland fight off the Red Army in 1920, alone, while Kremlin sympathizers in Western Europe blocked desperately needed arms shipments headed to Warsaw.
More germanely, the joint Nazi-Soviet invasion of Poland in 1939 brought none of the Allied help that Poland was obligated to receive under treaty. Although both Britain and France were supposed to come to Poland’s direct military aid, they were content to declare war on Germany and essentially do nothing, letting Hitler and Stalin dismember Poland completely.

Warsaw’s war plans assumed they needed to buy time — perhaps six weeks — until the British and French arrived. That promised rescue force never came, and every Pole today knows it.

Hence NATO assurances are met with a certain skepticism in Warsaw, including — perhaps especially — in defense circles.

Then there is the touchy issue of President Obama.

The Polish Right was never enamored of him, noting with disgust how Obama in 2009 cancelled a US/NATO missile defense system in the country, a move termed a “betrayal” by Poland’s president. Making the announcement on September 17, the seventieth anniversary of Stalin’s invasion, added insult to injury.

More than a few Polish right-wingers have doubted the staying power of Obama, particularly given his youthful dislike of President Reagan, a revered figure to many Poles for his major role in ending the Cold War and regaining Poland’s freedom.
Obama’s talky dithering on foreign and defense issues and his rough dealings with America’s friends have led to Polish worries spreading well beyond the country’s right wing.

I deal regularly with Polish defense and intelligence officials, and over the last few years their doubts about Washington, DC’s courage and wisdom have mounted steadily.

Poles understand that without American leadership there is no NATO in any military sense. Since the onset of Putin’s aggression against Ukraine, those fears have multiplied and there are now many in Warsaw who wonder if Obama would really honor Article 5 in a crisis.

Yesterday I spoke with a top Polish MoD official, a man of sober and strongly pro-American views whom I’ve known for years. Referring to this week’s needless White House crisis with Israel, another American ally who has doubts about the current administration, he noted, “I didn’t need the Beltway media to tell me who the real chickens--- is.”

"They really have no idea what they are doing,” he opined about Obama and his national security staff, “and we know it. You have no idea how many promises we’ve been given, even by the President himself, but there’s never any follow-up, it’s all talk. He thinks he’s on Oprah.”

When I asked if he thought America would come to Poland’s aid in a crisis, he said laconically, “I’d flip a coin.”

In a similar vein, a senior Polish intelligence official, another veteran of long collaboration with Washington, DC, expressed his skepticism to me.

“Is it 1939 again? I don’t know,” he explained, “but I think Obama isn’t even a Chamberlain,” citing the British prime minister who left Poland in the lurch at the beginning of World War Two.

Given such doubts, combined with Putin’s obvious desire to break the Atlantic Alliance, Poland will prepare to resist the Russians alone, while hoping and praying it does not have to.

Default WHen all else FAILs, the Democrats go for the race card..... AGAIN!

Desperate Democrats resort to race-baiting to spur black vote

The spate of campaign fliers that use images of lynchings, Jim Crow laws and the recent racial unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, to urge blacks to vote in next week’s election somehow failed to grab the attention of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.

The NAACP headquarters in Washington wasn’t prepared to answer questions about the fliers and mailers circulated in black communities in Georgia, Maryland and North Carolina, despite widespread news coverage of it for the past week.

“Can you send the photos of the literature and tell me the exact states they have been distributed in so that I can contact our field offices?” said NAACP spokeswoman Jamiah Adams.

PHOTOS: Clinton, Christie and the other biggest losers

She did not respond after receiving the information.

Bob Ross, president of the NAACP branch in Prince George’s County, Maryland, also wasn’t familiar with the race-baiting campaign literature.

“We haven’t seen it and we haven’t heard about it,” said Mr. Ross, whose county is majority black and a critical Democratic stronghold in statewide races. “I have three Facebook pages and Twitter and I haven’t seen that yet.”

He said that race should not be an issue in the election and he disagreed with the Maryland Democratic Party making race an issue.

“I can’t control the Democratic Party. They shouldn’t do that,” Mr. Ross said. “They should just let it go on the issues.”

The racially-charged fliers coincide with rising fears among Democrats that low turnout this year from black voters, who overwhelmingly back the party, will result in Democratic loses in the governor’s race in Maryland and in key U.S. Senate races in Georgia and North Carolina.

President Obama, whose low poll number have kept him for the most part off the campaign trail this year, has joined the scramble to excite black voters. He has quietly done a series of interviews on black radio stations to get the message out to the bloc that turned out in droves for him in 2008 and 2012.

“I’ll bet there are whole bunch of folks listening to your show who may not even know that there’s an election going on. I need everybody to go vote,” Mr. Obama said recently on the Rickey Smiley Morning Show in Atlanta, which is also nationally syndicated on the TV program Dish Nation.

The mailer in Maryland, which was produced by the Maryland Democratic Party, used racially-charged images to deliver the same message in support of Democratic Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown, who is in a surprisingly competitive race for governor against Republican Larry Hogan in that deep-blue state.

“Vote for Anthony Brown as Maryland’s first African-American Governor,” it says. “History is watching to see if we vote.”

The mailer includes images of a segregation era sign for a “colored waiting room,” a “Must Show ID to Vote” sign and a black-and-white photograph of a white protester in the 1960s holding a sign that reads: “Go Back to Africa Negroes.”

Another photograph in the pamphlet shows Donald Trump in front of a billboard that reads: “Where’s the birth certificate,” recalling the real estate mogul’s campaign to get President Obama to show his birth certificate and prove eligibility to be president.

“They’ve placed roadblocks in our path at every turn,” it says.

Another similar mailer from the state Democratic Party uses images from the street protests in Ferguson, Missouri, where protests raged in August after a white police officer fatally shot Michael Brown, a young, unarmed black man.

The Maryland Democratic Party and the Brown Campaign have defended the mailer as being historically accurate.

Mr. Ross, who is leading a get-out-the-vote effort and a voter protection drive in the county, said that while he disagrees with the state Democratic Party’s tactics, he would not call on the party to renounce the mailer.

“It’s a free democracy, if that’s what they choose to do,” he said. “I guess everybody tries to exploit voters in one fashion or another.”

A flier distributed in black communities in North Carolina used a photograph of a lynch mob to energize voters behind the state’s incumbent Democratic Sen. Kay R. Hagan, whose locked in a tough race against Republican Thom Tillis that will help decide which party wins majority control of the U.S. Senate.

The flyer’s message, printed across the photograph of a white mob with a black man hanged in the background, reads: “Kay Hagan Doesn’t WIN! Obama’s IMPEACHMENT Will Begin! Vote in 2014.”

A mailer sent out by the Georgia Democratic Party also used images from Ferguson, such as a photograph of two black children holding cardboard signs that each display two hand prints and the words “Don’t Shoot.”

The caption read: “If You Want To Prevent Another Ferguson In Their Future “

On the next page, the word “VOTE” was written in large red letters over a photograph of a man kneeling in the street with his hands raised above his head, as he faced riot police. “It’s up to you to make change happen,” it said.

Georgia is another state where Democrats are desperate to get black voters to the polls. The neck-and-neck race between Democrat Michelle Nunn and Republican David Perdue for the open seat is one of just three races where Democrats have a shot of picking up a GOP-held seat.

Georgia Democratic Party Chairman DuBose Porter insisted that the association between Georgia and Ferguson applies — that both were racial powder kegs.

“That’s what we need to change in Georgia because that’s what you have. You have situations, you have communities that can explode like that because you’ve taken the opportunity away from them,” he told the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

Omg the race card everyone knows how tolerant conservatives are or that they don't dislike Africans Americans.


Things Conservatives Hate
BY BEN HOFFMAN
Conservatives are not creators; they leave that up to the imaginary being in the sky. They do nothing but destroy. So I thought I’d make a list of things conservatives hate. (Feel free to add to this list.)

Things conservatives hate

High-speed rail transportation
Anything done that doesn’t make a profit
Green energy
Democrats
Barack Obama
Democracy in the United States (because sometimes the other party gets elected)
Tax cuts when proposed by Democrats (the Stimulus was 1/3 tax cuts)
Atheists
Gays (unless they’re self-hating gays like Larry Craig)
Legitimate economists (because they always contradict the conservative ideology)
Being told they have to buy insurance, even if they already have insurance (they just don’t like being told to do it)
Higher education (only the elite should be educated)
Science (it’s too hard)
Taxes. They’d rather see our infrastructure crumble than have to pay taxes (this would be number 1 if these were in order)
Not being at war (Conservatives love to bomb other countries where they get to destroy all sorts of things)
Publicly funded art projects
Publicly funded TV and radio programs
Social Security (unless they’re old enough to collect)
Medicare (unless they’re old enough or disabled so they can collect)
Any news outlet that doesn’t spin the news to the right
Regulation that restricts pollution
The environment (unless it involves property where they get to kill animals)
The minimum wage ($3 a day is plenty for workers like they’re paid in China)
Communism or socialism (unless it’s in other countries where U.S. corporations can exploit their workers)

Thumbs down REPUBLICANS HATE EVERYONE BUT THE RICH!

You often hear Republicans claim that President Obama and/or Democrats and/or Liberals, “Hate America!”

Here is a list of ways that Republicans showed us that while they claim to “Love America,” they seem to really hate Americans.

1. When Republicans in Congress refused to extend unemployment benefits at a time of very high unemployment unless millionaires and billionaires got to keep their tax cuts, they showed us that they hate unemployed Americans.

2. When Governor Rick Perry and the Republican controlled Texas Legislature chose to lay off thousands of teachers all across Texas rather than increase taxes or use more of the rainy day fund, they showed us that they hate American teachers and students.

3. In 2004 when then State Senator Michele Bachmann said, “If you’re involved in the gay and lesbian lifestyle, it’s bondage. It is personal bondage, personal despair and personal enslavement.” She showed us that she hates gay and lesbian Americans.



4. When Republicans chose cuts to social programs that help many Americans just trying to get by rather than cuts to tax subsidies for corporate jets and oil companies, they showed us that they hate poor and disabled Americans.

5. When Republicans such as Presidential Candidates Herman Cain and Former Speaker Newt Gingrich, Representatives Allen West and Peter King, and many others sought to deny freedom of religion to Muslim Americans by claiming that they shouldn’t be allowed to build a mosque, they showed us that they hate Muslim Americans.


6. When Republicans stripped the collective bargaining rights of union workers in Wisconsin and elsewhere, they showed us that they hate American union workers.

7. When Republicans in Congress sought to turn Social Security to a voucher program and Republicans in the Texas Legislature cut funds to nursing homes to balance a budget deficit, they showed us they hate senior Americans.

8. When Republicans in Congress and state legislatures across the country sought to remove funding family planning centers and the Women’s Health Initiative, they showed us that they hate American women.

9. When Republicans in Arizona, Texas, Alabama, and several other states passed laws that discriminate against ethnic Americans in the name of national security, they showed us that they hate Ethnic Americans and especially hate Hispanic, Middle Eastern, and Asian Americans.

10. When Republicans sought and continue to seek to remove funding from the EPA, they showed us that they hate breathing Americans.

There you have it. Republicans may love America, but they really hate Americans.

Hey MTB you are on a roll! Just for laughs I googled the author Ben Hoffman the authoritie (Cartmen would say it that way) of the diatribe list. Here is what Wikipedia had:
Benjamin Isaac Hoffman (born December 1974) is an American comedian and writer. He created and hosted The Ben Show, which premiered on Comedy Central on February 28, 2013. The show was cancelled by Comedy Central after one season.
Hoffman was a writer and correspondent for Sports Show with Norm Macdonald on Comedy Central and has written for the MTV Movie Awards. He has appeared on New Girl and Drunk History and has produced content for Current TV's infoMania.[1]
Hoffman is originally from Kentucky.[2] He is the older brother of Scissor Sisters bassist Babydaddy (Scott Hoffman).

Wow no greater seeker of the truth then this guy (lol). I heard that certain Chinese restaurants have fortune cookies with more truth and knowledge. Keep up the good work. I look forward to more of your interpretation of the world. Also it is a shame Ben's show got canceled after just a year.

Cool

They seem to need money more. If EPA rules get in the way of the bottom line they don't like that.
