    Right now in Kielce, Poland, there is taking place an internation military fair.
    MSPO Kielce Trade fair for military technology MSPO is an international defence industry exhibition and Central Europe's most significant fair event of this kind. It features not only the latest achievements in military equipment and armaments but also technologies and systems applied in fields such as logistics, security and rescue. A permanent element of MSPO is an exhibition of the Polish Armed Forces. In addition to the static exhibition, visitors have the opportunity to attend a demonstration of soldiers' practical operations. The MSPO will take place on 4 days from Monday, 01. September to Thursday, 04. September 2014 in Kielce.
    I have read that Polish government has already signed a deal for 70 new assault helicopters and have opened a tender (?? don't know if this is the proper world in english) for another batch of helicopters that will take place of the Mi - 24 we are still using.
    During this fair as well, we had the first opportunity to really see a MSBS assault rifle. First rifle in Polish army since 1989 that will not be based on kbk AKM (updated version of AK-47), but a rifle that was created by Polish engineers from scratch.
    During last year MSPO Polish Ministry of Defence has presented a Polish - made PL-01, armoured fighting vehicle.
    That's just for the information of freepers who like military novelties :)

    Funny thing Matt, is that we do have a working nuclear reactor with enriched uranium that is in production since 1970's. I just wonder how much enriched uranium we do have. How come our politicians do not use it as bargaining card.? Having an A-bomb would definitely stir the s**t-up, Russians would either feel unsecure and attack us straight away or they would back off. This sitaution is already known to the world - vide: India-Pakistan relations.
    I do not want to sound like a war monger but what Putin is doing right now is dangerously reminding me of 1930's and the actions taken by an Austrian painter with a funny moustache. :/ Either we stop him now or we'll have another war-hungry monster at our door.

    Poland military is no match for Russian military.
    It's amazing, that is exactly (!!!!!) the same thing that the whole world had said 94 years ago.
    It was a very similar situation, Bolshevik's with huge army, tons of money, restored army, support from Bolsheviks in Western Europe (Lenin: useful idiots), Ukrainian separatists (Budionny) and we have managed to kick their a$$es back behind Bolshevik's border and save Europe/World from Bolshevik's desease.
    This was one of the most important wars in world's history.
    I do not believe that Russians will attack our country (neither our Baltic neighbours) nevertheless, we are ready, they can't just roll in with their tanks like they did in Georgie few years ago.
    The resistance here would be crushing for Russian army, and Putin knows it.

    Being a Polish citizen, I'm a mere guest here at freerepublic.com, nevertheless, I'd like to share with you some of my thoughts.

    1. When on 10th of April 2010, Polish government plane with President Lech Kaczyński and his wife hit the ground, leading to death of more then 90 Polish officials, it lead to a wave of tasteless jokes about "how eagle has landed (vide. Dutch newspapers)". Western European leaders dismissed the idea of act of terrorism despise the evidence that this was a planned operation by forces trained in this field of expertise.
    It was clear that this "incident" did not happen because of bad weather, pilots mistake, lack of knowledge of russian, etc. It simply was a cold blooded murder. President Kaczyński was a stout catholic with great influence on Polish nation, he was a hero who fought against communists during the dark moments of our Polish history.
    I might not agree with all his ideas, nevertheless, I believe he always made decisions based only on his will to serve and protect his nation.
    In this brave new world, that's how you sign your own deathwish, I guess.
    2. Mr President Obama, knowing about the tragedy did not take time to visit Polish embassy, he prefered to play golf. I guess it's fine, we're just another, little, European, post-communist, catholic country that has been USA's friend since... the beggining of your state! Even though it cost us a lot (after 9/11/2001 when Polish govermnent informed that we will be sending our troops to help USA in WOT, French president told that we "have lost our chance to shut up").
    3.Western Europe is shocked that someone can kill their citizens and will not take the punishment... Polish govermnent has warned UN, EU, USA, etc. that the country called "Russia" is nothing more then a rouge state led by a tyrant dreaming of restornig the bipolar world dominiation.
    All our warnings were dismissed as a sign of "Polish russophobia". Well... now you have it, chips went down, people got killed, what kind of evidence do you need? 4. Finally, I still believe that Polish people and American Nation share the same values. We are still here, we will stand our ground. Muslims, Nazis, Commies, they all tried to eradicate us from these lands, but they all failed. If foreign power will try to establish their sick rule over Poland, they will meet same kind of resistance they have met always, we'll make them another 1920's Polish-Bolshevik war.
    This post is not to show reluctance towards our - Polish - American relations, I believe that both our nations should support each other.

    Embassies are considered to be part of the national territory of the country that holds them.

    Where did you get that information from? it's 100% incorrect I'm afraid. "Embassies" should actually be called "Diplomatic Missions" and although they have special privileges, they are not extraterritorial. It was an accident that guards booth burned down, however, even if this would be done on purpose, this is not a Casus Belli. There are only two ways that Russia can legally reply to this incident, it's either by the ways of retorsion (burning down guards booth of Polish embassy in Russia - I'm simplifing here) or reprisal (taking harsh actions against Polish citizens in Russia)
    The second one is considered a violation of international law.

    Indeed, the contribution to the world paid by my nation is often omited in history books for unknown reason. Sometimes it feels like we are back in 1930s and Poland is still regarded as "the bastard child of League of Nations".
    It's heart-warming to know that there are people like you who know better then that.
    I'd recommend you a book, Roman Dmowski's "Germany, Russia and the case of Poland" it's a great book written in 1920s I think. Prophecy of the Great War and the world we will see after the war. I guess Dmowski had used a crystal ball as his teories really came to life.
    They were continued in Samuel Huntington's "The clash of the civilizations".
    However, if you would like to read something more hmm.. casual I'd say go for books by Jacek Komuda. A Sarmat himself, he uses 15th - 16th century language in his books. I didn't know that there were so many curse words in my native language ;) I bet they have already been translated his books to English.
    I'm currently going through the book "An Army in Exile" by Władysław Anders, have you ever heard about "Private Wojtek"? How badass you have to be to have a bear in your army ;D

    Let me provide you a short excerpt about what were American governments thoughts on atrocities commited by it's Soviet "ally":

    Karski met with Polish politicians in exile including the Prime Minister, as well as members of political parties such as the Socialist Party, National Party, Labor Party, People's Party, Jewish Bund and Poalei Zion. He also spoke to the British Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden, giving a detailed statement on what he had seen in Warsaw and Bełżec. In 1943 in London he met the journalist Arthur Koestler (author of Darkness at Noon). He then traveled to the United States and reported to President Franklin D. Roosevelt. In July 1943 Karski again personally reported to Roosevelt about the situation in Poland. Karski met with many other government and civic leaders in the United States, including Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter, Cordell Hull, William Joseph Donovan, and Stephen Wise. Frankfurter, skeptical of Karski's report, said later "I did not say that he was lying, I said that I could not believe him. There is a difference."[7] Karski presented his report to media, bishops of various denominations (including Cardinal Samuel Stritch), members of the Hollywood film industry and artists, but without much result. His warning about the Yalta solution and the plight of stateless peoples became an inspiration for the formation of the Office of High Commissioner for Refugees after the war.[8] In 1944 Karski published Courier from Poland: The Story of a Secret State (with a selection featured in Collier's six weeks before the book's publication),[9][10] in which he related his experiences in wartime Poland. The book was a major success (a film of it was planned but never realized) with more than 400,000 copies sold alone in the United States up to the end of World War II.[citation needed]

    Please have a look at the bio of this brave and commited person:

    Few facts about Hussars for you:

    1. During years 1500-1652 Hussars haven't lost any battle they took part in.

    2. Hussars sabre is considered to be the best bladed weapon devised.

    3. Battle at Kircholm was won in few minutes, Hussars charge has crushed Swedish army, after Hussars lured the Swedes into trap. This day, out of 11 000 Swedish soldiers 9 000 have died, Polish army counted only 3 600 soldiers, around 100 of them died (including 13 Towarzyszy Husarskich eng. Hussars)

    4. On 11 of June 1694, in the Battle of Hodowo, Polish army consisted of 400 Hussars, their enemies, Tatars appeared on the battlefield in a huge number of 40 000. This means that for every single Hussar there were 100 Tatars. Nevertheless, Polish Hussars won this batlle.

    5. In the Battle of Kłuszyn, 7000 Polish soldiers (5500 Hussars) won against 35 000 of Russians. The disproportion of forces was so big that several Hussars divisions (Chorągiew) had to charge on the Russians 10 times!

    6. Hussars horses costed a lot of money, one horse could cost several villages or 66 kg of silver, they were rather light but tough horses from eastern races mixed with polish horses. After it's training, the horse was ready for battle at the age of 7. One of the skills these animals were taught was sudden turn in gallop (part of Hussars deadly tactic). Selling such horse or giving it away, outside of Polish-Lithuanian borders, was punished with death.

    7. Hussar could empale with his lance 3,4 or even 5 enemies at one time, there is a knwon example of Lithuanian Hussar who empaled 6 Muscovites.

    8. During battle around 5% of Hussars died in worst case, but the number of dead Hussars horses was much bigger. During the charge even if the horse was shot it was still running crushing enemy lines. That's where the legend of "Immortal Hussars Horses" comes from.

    9. Longest Hussars Lances where up to 6,2 meters long.

    10. Hussars metal plate armor was sometimes able to stop muskets bullet.

    11. Mercenaries that have signed in to many armies in Europe agreed to join army under restriction, that their new commanders won't lead them to fight against Hussars.

    12. Most deadly weapons of Hussars were their training and morale. It was an elite unit, that did not really receive much money for protecting their Fatherland. Their real strenght was in their brotherhood. They had a saying "If heaven falls on us, we will hold it with our lances"

    13. During The Battle of Vienna, allied forces stopped their attack on Turkish forces to watch and admire the charge of Polish Hussars.

    Poland has really come a long way as a nation. From a Jew hating oppressive state prior to and during the Nazi years, and a freedom crushing state under the Russians, to a pro-life pro-free speech pro-capitalist nation it is now.

    I can't agree with you, Poland has been a place where people of different believes found their refugee for hundreds of years. Please read this:
    "From the beginning of its statehood, different religion coexisted in Poland. In the 16th and 17th centuries, Poland was famous for its unique religious tolerance reasserted by the Statute of Kalisz (1264) and the Warsaw Confederation (1573)."

    Bear is afraid to do so, Poland is no Georgia (with due respect). Poland is a NATO member, Polish soldiers are well equipped, toughened by wars in Congo, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan. Unless Bear goes hand in hand with Germans as they did in the past they have no chance. Simple as that.

    This has nothing to do with "traditional Polish values". It's just a heritage of communism we are trying to get over. Unlike the rest of EU we are at least TRYING to get rid of socialism. That's the difference.

    Now tell me why do you consider it as a "traditional Polish values"?
    I live here and I know them very well, this has nothing to do with "killing Granny with evil private health insurance"

    Did you know that Warsaw's Old City which was totally destroyed during WWII has been rebuild according to the paintings made by Canaletto a.k.a. Bernardo Bellotto.

    In 1980 it was put on World Heritage List.

    Too bad that after WWII people responsible for rebuilding our Capital were hard core commies. Instead of saving monuments they could restore, they prefered to destroy them!!!
    Especially those connected with times of glory of "The Brightest Republic" - Rzeczpospolitą Obojga Narodów, and the power of Polish Kingdom.


    On the other hand there were people like Stanisław Lorentz who made everything he could to restore Royal Castle.

    Ah, the power of God gives people strenght... you can maim their bodies, you can kill them... but still, their souls and thoughts are untouchable. Even whole communist death-machine couldn't reach them.

    Awantura - Czerwone skurwysyny


    Gdy byłem małym dzieckiem,
    w moim mieście, jeździły czołgi.
    Kolejki stały, pod sklepami
    a w nich ludzie, bardzo głodni.
    Telewizja pokazywała, przemówienia generała.
    Władza, strzelała w fabrykach, kopalniach
    ,stoczniach na ulicach !

    Czerwone skurwysyny, znowu chcą dojść do władzy !
    Czerwone skurwysyny, nie głosuj nigdy na nich !
    Czerwone skurwysyny, zdrajcy naszego kraju !
    Czerwone skurwysyny, patriotów dziś udają !


    Patrioci, walczący o wolność znają waszej władzy smak
    Wprowadziliście obce czołgi, na ulice naszych miast
    To nie dzięki wam, nad naszym białym orłem, jest korona
    Śmierć czerwonej demokracji, niechaj jak najprędzej kona !


    Czerwone skurwysyny, znowu chcą dojść do władzy !
    Czerwone skurwysyny, nie głoduj nigdy na nich !
    Czerwone skurwysyny, zdrajcy naszego kraju !
    Czerwone skurwysyny, patriotów dziś udają !

    Translation:

    Awantura - Red Bastards

    When I was a small child the tanks where riding through my town
    Queues outside every shop
    and hungry people all around
    TV showed only Generals speech
    Government ordered to shoot people at factories, mines and at the streets.

    Red Bastards - they want to rule again
    Red Bastards - never vote for them
    Red Bastards - traitors of our Homeland
    Red Bastards - they pretend being patriots today

    Patriots fighting for freedom, know the taste of your laws.
    You have brought the foreign tanks on the streets of our towns
    It's not thanks to them that our White Eagle has his crown
    Death to red democracy, let it die fast.

    Red Bastards - they want to rule again
    Red Bastards - never vote for them
    Red Bastards - traitors of our Homeland
    Red Bastards - they pretend being patriots today
