Poland’s defence minister has asked the security services to investigate how hundreds, or even thousands, of soldiers and civilian employees of the army received harassing telephone calls from Russia.
The number of people who got mysterious calls from Russia has been reported to be as high as 10,000.
Essentially, he’s saying he’s willing to use nukes on the United States. The additional 40 to be deployed this year serves to remind that it’s more than just words from dictator Putin and that his Evil Empire is capable of delivering.
If you’ve been reading Global Geopolitics for a while now, you will have come to realize America is the only one resetting.
MOSCOW (AP) — Russia’s military this year alone will receive 40 new intercontinental ballistic missiles capable of piercing any missile defenses, President Vladimir Putin said Tuesday in a blunt reminder of the nation’s nuclear might amid tensions with the West over Ukraine.
Putin made the statement at the opening of an arms show at a shooting range in Alabino just west of Moscow, a huge display intended to showcase the nation’s resurgent military might. Continue reading
Tomasz Siemoniak fears that the annexation of Ukraine’s Crimea region is just the beginning of Russian leader Vladimir Putin’s expansionist plans, with Poland needing to prepare for the worst.
The Polish minister told Sky News: “We can see that Russia is going in the direction of restoring the influence it had at the time of the Soviet Union.
“It will move on to the territories of other countries, that will either be targeted by aggression or by some other measures taken by the Russian federation, so we have to be ready.” Continue reading
Poland has responded to Russia’s belligerence by raising its defence budget by 18 per cent, achieving the biggest increase in military spending of any country in Europe.
Haunted by memories of Soviet invasion, Poland is set to join the handful of Nato members who meet the alliance’s target of investing at least two per cent of national income in defence.
At present, this club consists only of America, Britain, Estonia and Greece. On present plans, Britain is likely to drop out of this group next year – exactly when Poland is due to join.
Such an army would fulfill Bible prophecy
But is having Germany in the driver’s seat of a European army cause for concern?
On October 30, German Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen signed a declaration of intent on German-Polish cooperation with Polish Defense Minister Tomasz Siemoniak. This declaration of intent is not limited to training drills but provides for “placing combat battalions under the other’s command.” After the agreement, von der Leyen’s ministry declared the “German-Polish cooperation is a trendsetting milestone for the development of European integrated military structures.”
Hans-Peter Bartels, the chairman of the German parliament’s defense committee, left no doubt as to the final destination of all these additions. “The hour has come, finally, for concrete steps towards a European army,” Bartels told Die Welt.
The signs are there for all to see: This will be an EU army under strong German control. Continue reading
Have you ever wondered what the world would like, post-Pax Americana?
As America suicidally declines, here’s your next likely superpower to fill the vacuum: A German-led EU/United States of Europe with a European Army.
The structure is set and all it needs is a unifying factor to tie the knot, such as a large-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine or a large-scale islamic terrorist attack within Europe. Europe already has a high amount of disdain for NATO and would feel more comfortable without it.
Here we also see how much influence and control Germany already wields within Polish and Dutch military circles.
This is also mainly why Germany wants Great Britain out and the British want out. It’s a matter of sovereignty whereas the immigration ‘issue’ is only an excuse for Merkel wanting to push Britain out should Britain put a halt to it.
BERLIN (Own report) – The German government is accelerating the creation of an EU army by means of bilateral military cooperation. The German-Polish “declaration of intent” on military cooperation of the two countries’ armed forces, signed in the middle of the week, is the most recent example. The agreement includes the exchange and joint training of officers as well as “placing combat battalions under the other’s command.” Poland’s military already has more than 130 German-made Leopard 2 battle tanks with another 120 due to be added by 2015. A sales contract to this effect was signed last year, only a few months after an agreement “reinforcing” cooperation between the Navies of the two countries was signed. At the time, German Defense Minister Thomas de Maizière (CDU) spoke of a “totally new quality” in the military cooperation between Germany and Poland. His successor, Ursula von der Leyen (CDU), has gone a step further and had her ministry declare that the intended German-Polish military cooperation is a “trendsetting milestone for the development of European integrated military structures.” Continue reading
WARSAW, Poland (AP) — Poland will move thousands of troops toward its eastern borders in a historic realignment of a military structure built in the Cold War, the country’s defense minister told The Associated Press on Monday.
Tomasz Siemoniak said the troops are needed in the east because of the conflict in neighboring Ukraine. Continue reading
WARSAW, Sept 22 (Reuters) – NATO member Poland is ready to sell arms to Ukraine if there is demand, Polish Defence Minister Tomasz Siemoniak said on Monday.
