What happens if Russia invades Poland?...
Vanity | Nov. 4, 2008 | Line Drive to Right

Posted on 11/04/2008 8:57:29 AM PST by line drive to right

Most of us voting today will be in lines where conversations may begin. There can be common sense talk about the issues that we know we're right about: taxes, freedom of speech, sanctity of marriage and - to me, the most important issue - abortion. And, I've been struck by this thought: Whatever the free people around the world think of America, they know that it is American they count on as the defender of freedom. I believe that Obama's history and worldview suggest that he would be clueless, and he would probably see moral equivalence, if Russia invades Poland; China invades Taiwan; North Korea invades South Korea, etc. One clue was when Russia invaded Ossetia a couple months ago, and HE ACTED AS IF IT WAS THE FAULT OF BOTH SIDES, until he saw that stance hurt him politically, and that he better join the real pro, McCain, in his take on the situation.

Poland ain’t no Georgia. The Russians will get their ass kicked by the Poles.

The Russian Army is only a shadow of what it once was.

Obama will say ‘stop that’... Then he’ll return to his conversations with William Ayers on how to modify America’s Educational system.

Russia wont invade Poland because they dont want to start World War III.

Ukraine and Georgia on the other hand, or other non-NATO members, are at risk.

The territorial integrity of every nation under the US defensive umbrella would be at risk if obama wins. Russia is just getting warmed up IMO.

Obama would call France, and order plenty of white flags to wave and hand them out at the United Nations. The American flag on the capital building would be replaced with a white flag -— probably would be anyway.

Obama won’t say Stop that, he’ll just say, “It’s morally right for them to do so. The USSR should be brought back because it represents HOPE for the Russian people.” And then he’ll go back to discussing educational indoctrination with Billy Ahole Ayers.

I sure wish the world would stop poking a finger in the eye of the Russian bear.

The Russians don’t want any trouble so please stop provoking them.

I voted today for John McCain.

Under BO Poland is toast. Don’t believe the crap about the Russian army being old and on it’s last leg; they have been modernizing and upgrading for a while now. Never, never, never underestimate your enemy and make no mistake that they are still an enemy.

we have given Poland quite a bit of guns/ammo/etc. They wouldn’t be a pushover.

The USA would ultimately have to defend Poland. End of story.

The White House phone will ring at 3 o’clock in the morning and Obama will answer. Vladimir Putin will be on the other end and say one word, “Chernyi”. That won’t be a Chris Matthew’s “tingle” running down Barack’s leg.

Would that be like the way we defended Poland and Eastern Europe from the Russians after WWII?

Jack Black flies to Poland to join his cousins in defense of the homeland! The only question is will United Airlines accept an FN-FAL and 1000 rounds of .308 as checked baggage and what will customs in whatever country I land in say.

Poland is on their own if Obama wins. He will not take any international action that requires the tiniest bit of risk.

The Poles will fight like devils. Devils fighting for a righteous cause. In Poland, 90% of the population has recent personal experience of exactly what Russian domination means. The Russians might wear them down eventually if they are willing to loose 100,000 men to gain a country that can never be held without spilling oceans of blood and cash for as long as they are there.

The USA didn’t exactly defend Poland before WWII

Well, that's certainly an interesting world view for a "McCain/Palin supporter!"

Where'd you pick that up - Dr. Seuss?

he isn’t president yet so lets not assume Russia will attack just yet. But your right the threat of loosing allies and all out war goes WAY up if obama is president.

Good point, let me amend that. Would that be like the way we defended Poland and Eastern Europe from the Germans before WWII and from the Russians after WWII?

If Obama’s in control our military will be gutted and Putin can overrun all of Eastern Europe if he has a mind.

When all your “former” brother countries hate your guts, you're doing something wrong. When Russia sits down and seriously thinks about what they are doing wrong, then they can change what they're doing and gain the respect of their neighbors.

Or they can continue to bully and whine about how they're mistreated. The idea that anybody's provoking them is laughable.

Vampire Vlad and Medvedev his dancing bear would do Russia more service by addressing the fact that every time three Russians are born, four Russians die. That's from their own demographic reports. Russia is headed for a population of less than 100 million by 2050. There will not be a Russia at all at that rate, much less a major power named Russia.

Oh, we can also kiss off the US.

It would depend on how fast the Europeans poop their pants. Obama could care less about the small Democracies trying to make it over there, but if his precious Europeans feel threatened he will turn it into his very own little Kosovo.

Poland will fight to the death. It will bleed the Russian Army. Remember your history:in WW2, with a much less modern army, Poland, fighting both the Germans and the Russians, lasted longer then the much more modern armed French.Of course it’s the french we are talking about but still........and I’m both French and Polish decent and had relatives in both countries at the start of ww2

"If Obama’s in control our military will be gutted and Putin can overrun all of Eastern Europe if he has a mind."

Then he will roll right into W Europe after that. Who is going to stop him? The Western Euroweenies like the Russians much better than the U.S. and "Booooosh" and think they no longer need us to protect them and will probably welcome The Bear as long as he doesn't shut off their gas and oil.

G-d Willing - all those beautiful Russian women will start to procreate!

Baruch HaShem.

Today, Pres. Putin should make a public address encouraging Russian women to have one more child. Those who are beautiful like Maria Sharapova should be encouraged to give birth to at least four lovely children.

Be fruitful and multiply - the whole zero population nonsense is propaganda from the enemy.

Obama would say (after Russians have occupied the Polish landscape) “now it is important for all parties to cease hostilities at their earliest convenience.”

It’s pretty safe to say that Russia won’t be invading Poland, China won’t be invading Taiwan, and North Korea won’t be invading South Korea in the next four years. None of these countries is in the position right now to take on these foes. However, the nature of the world is such right now that our next president is going to be forced to take military action somewhere in the next four years. And he or she is probably going to need to send troops. When that happens, regardless of how right our cause is, I predict that the same peace activists will be out there protesting, and it won’t matter whether it’s a Republican or a Democrat in the Oval Office.

Interestingly, the Polish polls say the Poles would vote for 0.
