Polish news site Thenews.pl is reporting that President Obama in a telephone call on Sunday to Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski assured him unequivocally as to Polands security, knowing that Poland is not only a neighbor of Ukraine but Russia as well.

Article 4 of the North Atlantic Treaty that was signed on April 4th 1949 and states that The Parties will consult together whenever, in the opinion of any of them, the territorial integrity, political independence or security of any of the Parties is threatened. Poland, which shares a border with Russia and is a recent addition to NATO, is concerned that, while Ukraine is not a member of NATO so it is not party to the principle of mutual defense, the current aggressive posturing by Russia may be a precursor to more belligerent actions by Moscow.

A pink promise from a known serial liar.

Obama can’t defend Maryland much less the Ukraine or Poland. He has our military worn out and now down sizing to three tank platoons and 14 infantry companies and 35 companies of queers. He couldn’t defend anything. I feel for our military folks. They are between queers and Obama. What a choice.
Lt. Col. Ralph Peters just uttered the Quote of the Week on FNC:
“Vladimir Putin is a trained KGB operative. He sizes up people quickly. Putin has Obama’s number, and Obama’s number is ZERO”.
