US Army 5th Corps command deployed in Poland

The United States has deployed the command of the Fifth Corps of the American Army in Poland. The ceremony, attended by US Ambassador to Poland Georgette Mosbacher and Defense Minister Mariusz Blaszczak, was held in Krakow.


Speaking at the commencement ceremony for the command, US Ambassador Georgette Mosbacher said that the United States and Poland had finally agreed on an agreement on "enhanced military cooperation" between the two countries. The head of the Polish military department, Mariusz Blaszczak, echoed her, confirming the signing of the final documents between the United States and Poland.

Today we have a really special day because today we are announcing the activation of the nominated command of the Fifth Corps in Poland (5th US Army Corps)

- declared Mosbacher.

According to the Minister of Defense of Poland, the Polish authorities confirm the decision to quarter the "nominated command of the fifth corps."

This decision is the crown of our actions related to the increase in the presence of American troops in Poland.

- Blaszczak said, adding that the final agreement on the military cooperation agreement between the USA and Poland was signed last week.

According to the agreements reached, to the American military already stationed in Poland, of which there are about 5 thousand, another thousand of the US military will be added.

Earlier, Warsaw said that the deployment of American troops on Polish territory would help protect the country from "Russian aggression."

      Poles, I want to tell a parable ...

      "Texas. 1873. Dilapidated saloon. Taper strumming the piano. An elderly cowboy in the corner sips his whiskey.
      A cool cowboy bursts into the room, spurs ringing, a hefty "Colt" in his hand, and starts firing at the bar as if he were running. Bottles and glasses fly to smithereens on the bar. Everything is in fragments. A shot knocked out a cigar from the mouth of an elderly cowboy, but he still watches the young one calmly. Young with a cry “Everyone remember - my name is Sheva! Kir Sheva "made the last well-aimed shot, firing off the wick at the candle.
      The elderly cowboy Stel-mah slowly got up and waddled, barely moving his legs, approached him ... It can be seen that every step is given to him with great effort. He took the pistol from the young cowboy's hand and examined it carefully:
      - Hmmm ... We cut the fly, son. Your Colt has too big a front sight, it is better to cut it off ... Once upon a time, a long time ago, I was the same as you - nimble and accurate. Just like you, I burst into a saloon where elderly cowboys were sitting and shot all the bottles. I had exactly the same 9-gauge Colt with a big front sight, son. And I also shot accurately, no worse than you. But when I ran out of ammo, three cowboys came up to me, shoved my hefty Colt up my ass and turned it there several times. So, sonny, listen to my advice, we took off the fly! We slept NATO, son! .. "

        Colt 9th gauge

        There are no such people. There are 38 caliber, there are 375 (this is 9 mm).
        More of which are 44 and 45.

      Only now, judging by the location of the American bases, Poland is more likely to be protected from Germany than from anyone else.

    At least there is a hope that Poland will not start a war, will not attack its neighbors, and will also be spared from any internal strife and "solidarity" in the future.
    As for the American military contingent, a bridgehead has emerged from which aggression against our country can begin, and therefore the targets for destruction, in order to prevent this aggression, are known, and the enemy is predictable.

    Recently (to my shame I did not save the site address) I watched an interesting video.
    The director of one of our institutes spoke.
    And he reasonably, step by step, with an analysis of all the steps of the Poles, broke this "thesis".
    For Poland, the "Russian threat" is a smokescreen, a cover.
    And protection from it is for the Polish inhabitants.
    There is a more terrible and not gone anywhere threat of loss of territories, and, as a result, dreams - Poland. from border to border.
    This is Germany.
    A third of Poland's territory is German lands. And the Germans have not forgotten about it. But so far they are silent.
    The Cieszyn region is the land of the Czech Republic. The Czechs are not the most powerful state. But in case of a successful combination of circumstances, they can return their own.
    And then forgiving Great Poland. Goodbye Poland then.

    The main argument is Poland's generally crazy proposal to the United States - Poland pays the United States $ 2 billion for the deployment of American troops.

    There have been no hostile actions on the part of Russia over the past 75 years. We will not take into account the birch near Smolensk.
    So where does this animal fear come from?
    And he is not.
    Just so convenient.
    The occupation of Poland by the Germans cannot be compared with the "occupation" of Poland by the USSR.
    And Poles are not paranoid and not schizophrenic, so as not to understand this.
    But to say that Poland, a NATO member, is terrified of nightmares because another NATO member, which is essentially the locomotive of the entire economy of the Eurozone, can demand its back is not to say out loud.
    So it is more convenient - Russia is the aggressor, Russia claims (for what? Excuse me).
    So the US army is the last hope of the Poles.
    But Poland has forgotten its history.
    The French and British did not die for her. Americans won't die for it.

    Russian aggression is a justification for the special political structure of Poland, in which any poorly educated and alternatively gifted people can govern this country only because they are Russophobes. Any glupek can succeed as a politician if he declares himself a Russophobe

    US Army 5th Corps command deployed in Poland

    The 7th AK stationed in Europe during the XB years was larger than the 5th ...
    190 thousand US Army personnel were stationed in the FRG. They were mainly part of the 5th and 7th Army Corps. The 5th corps included the 8th mechanized and 3rd armored divisions, the 11th armored cavalry regiment, two groups of field artillery and separate service units. The total number of corps personnel was approximately 50 thousand.The 7th Army Corps consisted of the 3rd Mechanized and 1st Armored Divisions, the 3rd Brigade of the 1st Mechanized Division, the 2nd Armored Cavalry Regiment, two groups of field artillery and separate parts of service (about 95 thousand people in total).

    The command of the 7th AK will be interestingly located where, in the Republic of Belarus or in Ukraine?

      The Seventh Army Corps was withdrawn to the United States in the early 90s and disbanded.
      ----
      Currently, there are about 34 thousand soldiers in Germany.
      USA. Most are Air Force and warehouse maintenance.
      Trump cuts them to 20 thousand

        And the 5th AK?
        From Wiki:
        The 5th Army Corps was awarded the Honorable Mention for Exceptional Service, Commendation, and then ceremonially disbanded at Biebrich Castle, Wiesbaden, Germany.
        In the spring of 2020, the Pentagon reactivated the corps to support the US Army Command in Europe.

              In any case: before 90 there were more than half a million in Europe
              American soldiers. Until 2014, there are only 25 thousand left.
              Now - no more than 50 thousand. The majority at the Air Force bases.
              One tank brigade.
              Of these: 20 thousand in Germany, 6 thousand in Poland.
