Ukraine crisis: Poland 'safe' says president
The News (Poland) ^ | 3 March 2014

Posted on 03/03/2014 7:23:56 PM PST by Army Air Corps

President Komorowski said after a meeting of the National Security Council on Monday in Warsaw that the US has given assurances on Poland's security, as the Ukraine crisis deepens.

In a telephone call on Sunday, Bronislaw Komorowski said Barack Obama assured him "unequivocally as to Poland's security, knowing that Poland is not only a neighbour of Ukraine but Russia as well."

Trying to solve disputes through military means, as Russia is doing in Crimea, "raises huge doubts and concern for the future," President Komorowski said after the National Security Council meeting, which brings together Poland’s prime minister, foreign and defence ministers and leaders of opposition parties.

Komorowski said he had instructed Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski to request NATO consultations under Article 4 of the alliance's founding treaty, which comes into force when the territorial integrity, political independence or security of any member state is threatened.

On possible sanctions by the EU against Russia, Komorowski said that Poland will be calling for the threat of tough measures against Moscow.

"Poland should present the case for a very firm stance on sanctions, both political and economic," Komorowski said.

US secretary of state John Kerry has muted the idea of asset freezes and other sanctions against the Russian government.

I dont want anything to do with Ukraine, but I would haul my 53 year old ass to Poland and fight along those guys.

I am still in awe of what they did in the shipyards back in the 80’s. Those guys have balls.

“Poland ‘safe’ says president”

Poland isn’t safe with Obuma; they’re white people.

The most worthless statement of our generation. Poland needs to update their constitution pronto to allow alla citizens to be armed, and then import as much arms as possible quickly.

We said the same thing to Ukraine in 1993.

Do you really want to make that bet Poland?

“We said the same thing to Ukraine in 1993.”

In 1993, Ukraine could depend on Bubba and Miz Klintoon, presumptive Presidential candidate for every erection, but esp. 2016.

I will bet the Poles are resting peacefully in the Obungler's assurances. Not.

The very worst curse in the world today is Obama's assurance.

It doesn't get any worse than that.

Every assurance he gives turns to a pile of dung. ObamaCare, anyone?

As long as Obama is president, Biden as VP, Kerry as Secy of State, Dempsey as head of JCS, and Obama has all his drug-addled marxist advisors in the White House, POLAND WILL NEVER BE SAFE.
