Polish General spoke about the differences in service in the army of Poland and NATO Poland

34
Polish media published an interview with the general of the Polish army, Waldemar Skjipczak, who briefly told about the main differences when serving in the army of the Polish People's Republic and in the current Polish army. According to Skzhypchak, who once served in the NDP army, there are differences, and "they are significant."


Polish General spoke about the differences in service in the army of Poland and NATO Poland


Skjipčak:
Before 1989, Poland was in the Warsaw Pact, and our army was preparing defensive actions against NATO. It was at the political level. But besides defense, we practiced offensive actions. Now this, by the way, is also practiced.


This mere statement by the general of the Polish army confirms the fact that the NATO strategy has an offensive segment. This is taking into account the fact that, in NATO itself, officials claim that the North Atlantic Alliance does not even think of attacking anyone.

Waldemar Skzipchak quotes Polish edition Republic:
At the time of the NDP, there were many “political” officers (political politicians) in the army. They sat in military units and rarely appeared directly at the exercises. Zampoliths conducted briefings and told how we need to vote in elections. For example, we were instructed in the June 1989 elections of the year. I then was the chief of staff of the 68 th tank regiment.


Now, according to Skzhipchak, there are no “political” commanders in the Polish army, and it is “freer”. At the same time, the Polish general did not comment on why, if the Polish army is so free politically, it cannot move a jot away from the “general line” of the main NATO player - the United States of America.

      Poland is simple in this regard, it is only necessary to take the right side on their flag in time ...

      Poland has a white-red flag. Therefore, they were never red or white at 100%. We have a good definition of this, but, alas, this definition can be found in dictionaries of the thieves language. Nevertheless, the definition is accurate.

        Well, there is joy - when they feed, both in the Soviet Union, so on both sides. Not those, others will not leave hungry.
        True, they have, when the time comes, also from two ....

    Previously, the Polish army served the people, and now it is served before the masters from the United States! The Poles used to have an army, now only a shadow of former power.

    The Poles used to have an army, now it’s just a national appendage of the US Army. It’s like Hitler used to have national brigades, divisions and battalions.

    Striking ability to change shoes on the go. Being the head of the staff in the Polish army he served, promoted, did not complain. A new time has come, swore allegiance to NATO and sang other songs with falsetto. One can understand why he survived the purge in the Polish army after getting rid of the "invaders."

    the general “forgot” one more, but the main difference, the soldiers of the NDP army did not take part in the conflicts in which the Soviet army was involved, but the soldiers of modern Poland become cannon fodder for all wars involving the USA ...

    Everybody walks in a circle. The whole history of Poland since the 17th century is its steady progress towards the division of Poland between its neighbors. Now - to the fourth section.

        In the 39th, the lands of Belarus and Ukraine simply seized by it in the 20th were simply returned. But Hitler swallowed up Poland itself, stubbornly piling up as allies, and even helping to crib Czechoslovakia. So this is not a division, just as the return of half of Sakhalin is not a division of Japan.

    "The best defense is an attack," as you know. And the conclusion of the Polish general was probably formed after intensive digging of trenches in the ranks of the army of the NDP.

    "... did not comment on why, if the Polish army is so free politically, it can not move one iota from the" general line "of the main NATO player - the United States of America." And not an iota to depart from the "general line" of the main player of the Warsaw Pact - the Soviet Union - this is certainly good and right. Everything is simpler, the Polish political officers wiped their pants, made brains for the rest of the officers and grew up the career ladder thanks to the "fidelity to the party." Not surprisingly, this annoyed the rest of the officers. The chaplains are understandable and do not stand close to political leaders, they work 99% with the rank and file and do not take away the ranks and positions of the command staff. I think this is exactly what the Polish general wanted to convey.
