      The Poles made an offer that the states simply cannot refuse. To build their base at someone else’s expense near the border of Russia is simply for them the dream of a lifetime.

      The frenzied comprador leadership of Poland will bring the country to full American occupation and TMV war.
      Duda & Co. thinks that the Americans will take pity on the Poles and will not let them into "cannon fodder." No matter how it is!
      In Washington, they will now calculate how much the "farm" of OOO "Poland" offered by it will cost the United States and when the Poles can be slaughtered to the Pentagon.

        Boosting the economy and compensating for the costs of the base with a substantial influx of money into the treasury from prostitution ...

      In fact, Mattis is the most adequate person among all the current degenerates who have settled in the White House.
      In the new book Fear, which tells about the chaos in the Trump administration, the author Woodward cites the moment when Russia told Mattis that it would use tactical nuclear weapons in response to aggression against the Russian Armed Forces in the Baltic. After that, the Pentagon called the Russian Federation a threat to its existence.
      Woodward also writes that in 2017, Trump was very dissatisfied with the ineffectiveness of the missile strike on Syria, so he insisted on delivering a second air strike, and it was worth a lot of work for Mattis to distract the red-headed genius to other tasks.
      By the way, I recently read that Mattis spent most of his career on avoiding direct conflict with the Russian Federation.

      So, counted and decided that it is so cheaper. yes
      And he, in turn, asked to transfer as many military personnel and equipment as possible to Poland. Duda also noted that he already has a ready-made name for the military facility - “Fort Trump”.
      In addition, the Polish leader said the government was ready to take on the costs of building the necessary infrastructure.
      Psheki naively decided that they would pay off with a one-time expenditure on the arrangement of "dear guests-defenders" ", and that's all ... Yes, they forgot who they contacted. laughing Yes, the redhead with them will also freeze the annual 2% of GDP "for defense", and force them to serve the "contingent" at their own expense (if the business with the base will burn out). Here it is enough to recall the recent deal on "Patriots", when the mattresses first charged pshekam space price tag (about ten billion), and later rolled back to the "average" cost. And the Polish people to this day believe that they have boiled well, and even the mattresses themselves have been moved in price. wassat

    funding for Polish drunkards from EU bins will soon end and psheks are looking for a replacement for financial flows instead of Europe. And here the Americans with gas supplies and other stuff and crafty beasts dared to make the country a springboard against Russia for American money. We will wait for Europe to fall from them for the debts of recent years

      Over the past few years, Poland has been developing successfully and can already afford such large expenses as buying a Patriot, building new bases and increasing the size of the army. By the way, the standard of living in Poland is higher than in Russia and continues to grow, unlike ours. All this is bad for us, although not critical so far. But seeing what kind of economic policy our government is leading, we can foresee that the gap will only widen. This can lead to the fact that even fraternal Belarus can follow in the footsteps of Ukraine.

        You are not counting the hidden stones of Polish "well-being."

        Poland is pumped up with money on its own, as it lives on large deferred US loans, which, in my opinion, it should start paying next year. The Polish leadership has nothing to pay without the fall of the Polish economy.
        Therefore, the offer of Duda does not at all indicate the accumulation of money in Poland. On the contrary, it indicates that the Polish leadership will be forced to repay its debts to Washington by BARTER - i.e. natural nature and the surrender of its national sovereignty to its American creditors.

    the Poles needed to swear an oath to them that they would feed the occupation cantangent apples exactly one thousand years at their own expense, then the Yankees would open a vegetable base there wassat and Polish vegetables, or politicians, call it whatever you like, would go to serve the new owners, slavery is clearly in their blood at the genetic level.

    Still, Fort Ross is more suitable in Poland.

    What short-sighted Psheks, the territory of Poland has always been the bridgehead of the West for attacking Russia, Russia, the USSR and again everything is repeating, apparently only the territory of Poland burnt into the lunar soil and without any panes and panels will become safe in the future ....

    What is there to understand, everything is your way, they push the rolls.

    Something strange, the answer is visible even with closed eyes. Is it when the Americans refused the possibility of military participation in provocations, under the guise of "peacekeepers"?

    Poland is trying to seize the leadership in Europe from Germany, becoming the "beloved wife" of the hegimon.

    We sat on dates from Europe, and then got into a fuss, and they will buy liquefied gas from the Americans and are ready to build a base at their own expense!
