US moves missile into Poland next to Russian Border
Magda Hassan Wrote:...
Sikorski's waxing militant over his nation's acquisition of its first battle-hardened warriors since the opening days of the Second World War can only be understood in the context of Poland bordering the only two nations in Europe truly not within the U.S. and NATO military orbit (Ukraine's status in this respect still to be decided): Belarus and Russia.

The Polish foreign minister (since 2007) was a citizen of the United Kingdom from 1984 onward and a resident of the U.S. from 2002-2005 where he was resident fellow at the American Enterprise Institute in Washington, D.C. and executive director of the pro-NATO New Atlantic Initiative (he is married to American journalist and fellow former American Enterprise Institute affiliate Anne Applebaum), and returned from the U.S. to become Poland's defense minister in 2005.

It bears repeating that he was also a combatant in Angola.

Quote:Starting on May 31 U.S. European Command and Naval Striking and Support Forces NATO (STRIKFORNATO) will lead military drills with Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania in the second Baltic Host operation, the first of which was held last year in Estonia. This year's will be held simultaneously in the capitals of the three Baltic nations and will for the first time include participation by the armed forces of Denmark, Germany, Norway and Poland. "All participants acknowledged the 'Baltic Host 2009' exercise to be very successful and agreed on the fact that it should be established as a permanent training cycle organised in the Baltic States."

Coincident with Bilderberg in Spain.
