Former Deputy Minister of Defense of Poland: We need a strategy on how, in case of war, to hold out for a month before the allies arrive

72

The Polish press published an article dedicated to the stay of the Polish state in the NATO military bloc. Recall that Poland, along with Hungary and the Czech Republic, became one of the countries of the so-called first expansion of the North Atlantic Alliance after the collapse of the Warsaw Pact and the Soviet Union. The admission of these three Eastern European states to NATO in 1999 was a violation of the obligations that Western "gentlemen" gave to Mikhail Gorbachev when he flicked the document on the unification of Germany.


Do Rzeczy publishes an interview with Romuald Sheremetyev, who was previously the Deputy Minister of Defense of Poland. Today Professor Romuald Sheremetyev represents the Polish Academy of Military Art.

Sheremetyev was asked if Poland began to feel safer after joining NATO? An ex-official of the Polish Ministry of Defense said with a grain of salt that "in a sense, you can think so." According to him, joining NATO meant for Poland that it "escaped from the sphere of Soviet influence and ceased to be an appendage of Moscow."

At the same time, Romuald Sheremetyev did not add the obvious - that Poland had become an open appendage of the United States, although this was indirectly expressed in his speech.

At the same time, the ex-deputy head of the Polish Ministry of Defense reproached the West for the fact that at one time certain European countries also called themselves allies of Poland, but Poland did not become safer from this. Sheremetyev cited France and Britain as an example - in fact, the famous Munich Agreement, when at first Poland itself took part in the invasion of Czechoslovakia, and then the Nazis attacked Poland, and neither Paris nor London came to help the "allies".

Romuald Sheremetyev said that today Poland is building its own security "based on one state - the United States." The representative of the Polish military academy made it clear that the European countries, NATO members, Warsaw actually does not consider as allies.

In his interview, the ex-deputy head of the Polish Ministry of Defense noted that today the situation for Poland is such that "you need to have a strategy on how to hold out for a month before the arrival of help from the allies in case of war." Sheremetyev recalled that this is exactly the term given to Poland by NATO allies to receive military assistance in the event that Poland is attacked.

Sheremetyev:

And it is better to have a strategy for how we can hold out for more than a month, if the allies suddenly delay ... It is surprising that not everyone in our country is aware of this problem.

          They simply forgot the history of how they were divided three times about 230 years ago. And as Western partners (France, Britain) allow us to do this. History has such a wonderful quality, if you do not draw certain conclusions from the historical process, fool then history repeats itself - again with the same rake and in the same place! belay

            I give you, take away:
            Opening borders for the Arabs blacks Africans, Turks, etc. , you give them Poles, the birth rate starts to break all records, the number of Poles is getting bigger and you hold on for a month, or maybe even one and a half. [Sarcasm]
            And you can generally be friends with your neighbors and no one will fight with you, and he was not going to

            In 1939, Poland failed to hold out for one month. Why did the Pole Sheremetyev suddenly decide that in 2021 Poland will be able to defend itself for one month? Since WWII, the speed of technology has increased many times. It seems to me that now Poland will not last a week, and then Hitler - kaput, capitulary, paws up and dig a coal in sunny Magadan.

              I managed to hold out :)) Even for more than a month, from September 1 to October 6, 1939.
              Everyone was waiting for allies.

                Well, if the boiling point in the boilers is counted as defense, then they've been through a month. On September 17, 1939, the Red Army began a campaign to liberate Western Ukraine and Belarus, because the Polish western front practically collapsed. It would be more correct to say that in one month Poland was completely cleared of defenders.

      They have one answer for all seven troubles!
      The month is the limit.

      Let us recall the Wehrmacht operation "Weiss", or, according to Polish historiography, the "September campaign".
      It lasted from September 1 to October 6, 1939. That is, a little over a month to fix the complete defeat.

      Accordingly, they think within one month. And again, the allies did not come to the rescue.
      Alas, this is fate.

      And instead of an honest look at history in matters of the role of Germany, the USSR and taking into account the fate of Czechoslovakia, an analysis of the current situation in the United States, they are again stepping on the old rake.

        Allied forces will linger for eternity trying to help Poland.
        However, both our American allies and NATO leaders say bluntly that in the event of an attack on Poland, our army will have to withstand a month waiting for help. So we should have a strategy of optimal actions in case, God forbid, Poland undergoes a military invasion. We must have a strategy on how to hold out this month and even more if the forces of the allies for some reason are delayed.


        .22 years in NATO: Poland is no longer an appendage of Moscow (Do Rzeczy, Poland)

        Blimey. Not an appendage. Well, Poland rules. Polish complexes are eternal.

The bulk of them were quite benevolent: my mother did not manage to master Polish - they practiced their Russian.

      It seems to me that if Russia suddenly seizes Poland from some sort of alteration, the Westerners will only cross themselves and pour a glass to celebrate such a successful event .. To put it mildly, a dubious acquisition .. Owning Poland is not like eating lobio, there is a lot of noise, little wool, as the devil said when cutting a cat ..

      And if now it suddenly turns out to return this value back, it will clearly be regarded in the West as a victory. Even if not publicly .. Like - don't worry again Muscovites are suffering with them .. Only shish them - I can't imagine any of our rulers who would agree to this. No, we have already served ours. Enough with us. Now the Poles are forever your headache ..

    What nonsense, by which one can understand how stupid these our former allies in the Warsaw Pact are, even if the author was a deputy. Minister of Defense of Poland. They cannot even supply the vaccine against covid to those countries where it is in short supply, but here everyone will leave and rush to rescue Poland.
    In general, this is another attempt by the Poles to attract attention to themselves, because if Russia comes to mind to seize Poland, NATO will be destroyed first - there is no other algorithm. But in fact, it would never occur to anyone in Russia to capture the Poles' parasites - let the Western countries feed them, we remember these freeloaders well from the CMEA.

Two weeks before section number 4 & etc - the experience of surrendering is already there and centuries of mediocre lived, in order to understand - no one needs you at the festive table.

    I remember they held out against the Germans for a month, but the "allies of the Anglo-Saxons" never came to the rescue ... The USSR offered military assistance, but the arrogant Poles snorted and surrendered to the Germans .. Is it starting again now?

    In 1939, they managed to hold out for 17 days, then the top leadership skipped to Romania.

    It is in vain to wait. In the event of war, help will not come, - the blow will be dealt to the center of decision-making, - there is potential help.

    Former Deputy Minister of Defense of Poland: We need a strategy on how, in case of war, to hold out for a month before the allies arrive


    What idiotic words, testifying to ignorance of history on the one hand and detachment from reality on the other.

    In 1939, Poland had to withstand 15 days before the Allied counteroffensive.
    On September 12, she had a conference in Abbeville, where we were simply left to fate - how it all ended - with a hecatomb of citizens and the loss of 1/5 of the country's area.

    For about a month this crazy politician mentions, who, together with others, is a disaster for my Motherland, since the last exercises showed a very optimistic, in my opinion, 5 days - in real terms a maximum of 3.

    Thirdly, the arrival of "allies after this date will mean hell on the territory of my homeland and a full-scale war."

    The truth is that we need a strategy and such a policy to never allow war - good-neighborly relations and understanding of our (unfortunately, secondary from the point of view of political significance) place in the world, building a future without offense and looking back.
    Let me say bluntly - the United States is on the other side of the world, Russia is next to them, and logic dictates that if
    to have an enemy as far as possible outside the border of an ally next to it than vice versa.

    post scriptum. When I look at the headers, the page should be called "MILITARY REVIEW OF THE POLISH MEDIA".
    And this is a very biased choice.
    There are so many interesting topics about the weapons of armed conflicts and the news of the defense industry that it is a pity to litter them with such frequent propaganda and unrest against Poland.
    It is not beneficial for you or us.

    Isn't it better to create an atmosphere conducive to understanding? You are a great nation, with people of great soul and heart. This is your strength, and the stupid Polish politicians will soon die.

    Well, there is a kagbe experience. In 1939, they held out for about that long. The result is known. But they planned to take Berlin with their best cavalry in the world. lol And allies ... what allies? As they were then, they are now on the other side of Germany, and Germany is unlikely to want to fight again against Russia. The Germans, unlike the Poles, have a historical memory. But the Germans, quite possibly, will not refuse to take back Silesia, Pomerania, Danzig, and Stettin.

    And who will die for you, "if what?" NATO? Glыsome doubts. Although, if Tribalts are thrown at them, and they are like cannon fodder, then YES. But on Estonians pshekam need to take amendments, and multiply the initial period, a kind of five times. laughing

    I've seen suspiciously few drawbacks under the comments. Liberal propaganda campaigns on the topic of Poland have not yet been printed, or do Ukrainian fighting Divanovites also dislike Poles? laughing

    September 1939 campaign
    On September 1, 1939, at 04:45 am, according to the Weiss plan, German troops, without declaring war, launched an offensive along the entire length of the German-Polish border, as well as from the territory of Moravia and Slovakia. The front line was about 1600 km. A few minutes later, the training battleship Schleswig-Holstein began shelling the Polish naval base Westerplatte in Danzig. This shelling is considered the first shots of the outbreak of the war. The seven-day defense of Westerplatte began.

    However, already in the first three days of the campaign, the Polish armed forces lost several battles in the border areas. German motorized units broke through the defensive positions of the Polish armies "Lodz" and "Krakow".

    As a result of German air strikes, the Polish Modlin army was disorganized and began to chaotically retreat to the eastern bank of the Vistula. Army "Lodz" was unable to hold positions on the rivers Warta and Vidavka. The position of the armies "Prussia" and "Krakow" also became critical.

    On September 3, about 2000 citizens of the Polish city of Bydgoszcz, ethnic Germans, were killed. It is still not clear who shot the civilians. According to one version, these were Polish partisans. According to another version, in the city there were clashes between German saboteurs, who were provided with some support by local residents of German origin, with units of the regular Polish army.

    On September 6, the Polish high command ordered the armies of Pomorie, Poznan, Lodz and Prussia to retreat to positions on the Vistula. On the same day, President Ignacy Moscicki and the Polish government left the capital of the country, and the General Staff moved to Brest.

    On September 8, German tanks approached Warsaw. On the same day, Marshal Rydz-Smigly ordered all Polish troops to retreat as far as possible to the east in order to establish defenses near the border with Romania. The marshal hoped that in this forest region, in the conditions of the coming autumn, the rapid advance of the motorized units of the Germans would slow down. In addition, the marshal hoped that supplies of weapons from the Western allies would go through Romania.

    Let them ask the neighbors, the Balts and Bandera.
    Those have a rich experience of digging a cache in the forest and sitting in it for years until the police pull it out by the ear.
    "But no help came - no reinforcements were sent ..."
