“We will be one of the leading powers in Europe”: Polish media about the rearmament of their army


GazetaPrawna.pl talks about how Poland is preparing for the coming war. The article cites an already rather boring cliche, common to the entire Western press, that Russia, they say, has destroyed the notion that a classic conflict in Europe is impossible. And now Poland allegedly has to rearm just for this reason.


The author Witold Sokala begins to frighten the Polish reader literally from the first paragraphs. He argues that "pictures of what is happening in Ukraine" can be repeated on Polish soil.

To be honest, something like this would be possible if the Russian enterprise went according to plan, Moscow would sooner or later find a pretext for a new invasion. Maybe by going to Lithuania or Latvia, maybe to Moldova and Romania, and perhaps to us. In March or even in April, we did not know how long the Ukrainian defense would last, how serious the determination of the Western allies would be, what strategy China would pursue.

- inspires Mr. Sokal.

The author acknowledges that until recently, Polish military power only looked good on paper. In reality, everything turned out to be much worse.

Many opportunities were lost, and a significant part of the military equipment simply handed over to the Ukrainian army.
At the same time, the rearmament program, actively supported by the Polish society, started.

The first transport, which brought a batch of South Korean K2 tanks and K9 self-propelled howitzers, which arrived in the port of Gdynia earlier this week, was received in a festive atmosphere. The celebration, attended by President Andrzej Duda and Minister of National Defense Mariusz Blaszczak, had a double message: yes, we are arming ourselves seriously and without focusing on traditional sellers. The latter should send a signal both to the Americans (who are accustomed to an almost complete monopoly on the most profitable supplies to Poland) and the French (actively involved in European rearmament projects and counting on ousting transatlantic intruders from the EU markets). In fact, the whole thing pissed them all off a bit. Not to mention the Germans lagging behind in all respects

the author pointed out.

He notes that Poland plans to receive hundreds of tanks from Korea alone, not counting the supply of Abrams from the United States. Big plans for self-propelled howitzers.

But with the idea of ​​​​getting 500 MLRS HIMARS, Poland will have to moderate its appetites and limit itself to two hundred complexes. However, the missing amount is also planned to be covered by the South Korean military-industrial complex, and specifically by the K239 Chunmoo complexes.

In combination with the programs already implemented, this is a quantitative and qualitative leap. This puts the Polish Army on the position of the army of one of the leading powers in Europe, at least in Central and Eastern. There is something to be proud of now

    This Polish Sokal actually announced the plan for the development of the conflict in Europe.
    Only she again made a substitution, not Russia will invade European countries, but the United States will create situations and provocations to continue the conflict.
    What could be more profitable for America than a long, ongoing war in Europe?
    Can Americans really tell the difference between Ukrainians and Russians?
    Are Poles or Czechs more valuable to them than their own blacks and transgender people?
    This means that until there is no significant danger for them, they will continue to support this conflict, no matter who participates in it.
    By definition, this war cannot end with negotiations with Kyiv.
    So it is necessary to liberate the entire territory of Ukraine.
    And what if the Poles enter the territory of the Lviv region on the outskirts of Lviv? This means the war will continue with Poland.
    The war with Poland will allow the Baltics, the Czech Republic, and other American "sixes" to be drawn into the conflict.
    How to stop the war?
    How to put Washington at the negotiating table?
    I see only one way - this is a tactical nuclear strike on the territory of western Ukraine, closer to the Polish border.
    Maybe this will convince the American hawks of the seriousness of the Kremlin's intentions.

    It seems that Duda has seen enough of the movie "Three Tankers and a Dog". Dogs in Poland are no longer the same - they will not save the tankers.

    they can't settle down. What needs to be done to make the Polish herd human? Should they arrange a gene war or what? But we are not AMERICOS, we are RUSSIAN and that says it all. Let's do it for kindness.
