Skip to comments.The West underestimated Russian threat - Polish presidential adviser

Andrzej Zybertowicz, an adviser to Polish President Andrzej Duda, said during a discussion aired by public broadcaster TVP Info that the West decided when the Cold War was over that there was no threat from Russia.
It pinpointed terrorism as the greatest threat, resulting in most intelligence and counterintelligence services focusing on combating terror, Zybertowicz said.
This resulted in the activities of Russian agents, including those of agents of influence, cutting through the elites of Western countries like a knife through butter."
"We have here is the limited capacity of Western leadership elites to oppose aggressive policies. This could have been stopped a long time ago had it not been for the strategic mistake made in the process of emerging from the Cold War."
Zybertowiczs comments came in the wake of escalated tensions after Russia fired on and captured three Ukrainian navy ships near the annexed Crimea peninsula last month.

He’s making a good point but No one was stopping Poland from doing their own thing during that time.
Ah, those halcyon days when those lib “intellectuals” were using the term “End of history”.
And there are still folks who actually believe that journalist and political types are educated.
I’ve heard about that “honey trap” thing, where people get talkative and give up secrets after in a post coital environment. But all those Russian women never told me any secrets, not even after I gave em the big O.
So I’m not exactly sure effective how that whole honey trap technique really is... maybe I’m missing something.
All kinds of secrets. Real ones and hoaxs. Always have a good damaging hoax ready along with your after sex cigarette. If you smoke. (Do you smoke after sex? I never looked!)
The cold war ended and we celebrated our victory, not knowing that one day the Russians would strike back with fake Facebook profiles and online tales of nonsense. How could we have been so blind!?
OK, where can I sign up to be influenced?
