America reneges on missile defense for New Europe
The United States is poised to dump a critical missile-defense agreement with two of its most dependable NATO allies. The Polish daily Gazeta Wyborcza reported yesterday that the Obama administration is going to scrap the "third site" anti-missile system scheduled to be deployed in Poland and the Czech Republic. Missile interceptors in Poland and a radar station in the Czech Republic were scheduled to be deployed by 2013. Now the plan appears to have been shot down.
This move sends the wrong signal to our allies in Eastern Europe. The former Soviet satellites have been among the strongest proponents of a robust U.S. role in Europe because they believed they could count on the United States to defend their interests against perennially predatory Russia. Both countries showed good faith by sending troops to fight in Iraq as part of the multinational force. The Polish and Czech governments acted courageously when they agreed to host the missile-defense system.

Zero is supposed to give a speech on nuclear disarmament in September (at the UN, I believe). Remember, he wrote the thesis that nobody can find on US nuclear disarmament in its relationship with the USSR. This was actually a big issue with the left of the generation before Obama’s, but since the mystery thesis was probably written by Bill Ayers, whom he knew at Columbia and who is about a generation older than Zero, I guess that’s easy enough to explain.
And now he gets to carry it out.

Zero is definitely pooty poot’s butt boy now.

(When reality hits us that it's not "Incompetence" but rather "Intentional", what are we going to do?)
I guess White, Christian, ex-Communist friends aren't too high on Mr. O's priority list.
Now if they were Muslim, Marxist, enemies . . .
The Czechs know all about appeasement. I doubt they are surprised. Disappointed but not surprised. The Odious One continues to show his true communist colors (might I be accused of racism for that phrase). We are in for a rough ride over the next four years.
“The United States is poised to dump a critical missile-defense agreement with two of its most dependable NATO allies”
Current reality points to the conclusion that it is now the US who is not a dependable NATO ally.

Obama jilts the free world. Obama jilts anyone choosing democracy over communism and fascism.

Poland, the Czech Republic, Britain, Israel, the Vatican.... Neither they nor we (Americans) can reach Obummer’s ears, but maybe some Dems will hear if enough of the world says, “Hey, kid, you’re NUTS!”

Obama is absolutley the worst president in history. I just hope we can survive 3 more years of him.

Freedom and democracy are among the least concerns of this administration.

Our government has been hijacked and our people are being ignored, defied, robbed and ridiculed by Obama and his czars. We beg your forgiveness, but until we win this upcoming revolution, and we will, we pray you will understand that We the People are not supporting this move at all.
Hang tight and we'll be back as soon as we take care of a little business reclaiming our nation.

We beg your forgiveness...
You don't need to beg us for anything since you represent America of people like Ronald Reagan, etc. who were restless in their effort to topple communism all over the world. Mainly thanks to AMERICA Poland is free today and no longer trampled by Soviet thugs in uniforms. This could have never happened without the USA.
We still remember Ronald Reagan's message to Brezhnev who openly threatened Soviet Union with military intervention if the Red Army had invaded Poland in 1981 to stifle Solidarity. Let me tell you that the most optimistic estimations claimed 500,000 Polish fatalities since it was a secret to none that Polish people would have put up a spirited defense of the country against the Soviet invaders. Having no arms, no guns, that must have ended up with massacre, and this is actually what Poland was spared thanks to no less than Ronald Reagan.
We, the Polish, fully respect and admire patriotic Republican part of America, while the so called Democratic one has always been seen by Poles as the one represented by men like F.D.Roosevelt who sold Eastern Europe to Stalin in Yalta.
Free Republic is the place where nobody needs to apologize the Polish people since Freepers are men of honor. The so called Democratic part of America doesn't need to apologize us either since any apologies from dishonorable men make no sense.

Optimism comes less easily today, not because democracy is less vigorous, but because democracys enemies have refined their instruments of repression. Yet optimism is in order, because day by day democracy is proving itself to be a not-at-all-fragile flower. From Stettin on the Baltic to Varna on the Black Sea, the regimes planted by totalitarianism have had more than 30 years to establish their legitimacy. But none -- not one regime -- has yet been able to risk free elections. Regimes planted by bayonets do not take root.
The strength of the Solidarity movement in Poland demonstrates the truth told in an underground joke in the Soviet Union. It is that the Soviet Union would remain a one-party nation even if an opposition party were permitted, because everyone would join the opposition party
In the Communist world as well, mans instinctive desire for freedom and self-determination surfaces again and again. To be sure, there are grim reminders of how brutally the police state attempts to snuff out this quest for self-rule -- 1953 in East Germany, 1956 in Hungary, 1968 in Czechoslovakia, 1981 in Poland. But the struggle continues in Poland. And we know that there are even those who strive and suffer for freedom within the confines of the Soviet Union itself. How we conduct ourselves here in the Western democracies will determine whether this trend continues. No, democracy is not a fragile flower. Still it needs cultivating. If the rest of this century is to witness the gradual growth of freedom and democratic ideals, we must take actions to assist the campaign for democracy.
President Ronald Reagan
Promoting Democracy and Peace
Speech to the British Parliament, June 8, 1982
Too bad we are losing such a precious ally as USA. Since the creation of America, there were Polish people, soldiers mostly, that decided to devote their lives to creating American state. General Pułaski, father of American cavalry, who died in the battle of Savannah, Tadeusz Kościuszko, Stanisław, Ulam and many others.
We received help when we needed it, in Woodrow Wilsons "14 Points", point number 13 established Poland after 124 years of partitions. Americans were a crucial ally in WWII (there is even one President who claims his uncle freed prisoners from Auschwitz, he was probably the only black person in Red Army...)
In dark years of communism we got support from USA. Not from European-commie-supporting-afraid-of-Moscow-pussies.
Polish and American troops fight hand in hand in WoT, the strongest support of WoT came from Eastern Europe, yes, yes those ex-Communist (anti-Communist) countries.
I guess we will have to wait three years before Polish-American turn normal.
