Poland Steps Up Military Spending

The world has become a more dangerous place as America retreats.

Poland has earmarked 33.6 billion euros ($42 billion) on the upgrade over a decade, which includes a missile shield and anti-aircraft systems, armoured personnel carriers and submarines as well as combat drones.

The plans bring Warsaw in line with NATO’s recommended defence spending level of 2.0 percent of gross domestic product.

Its long shopping list is full of pricey items including multi-role and combat helicopters, an anti-missile system and cruise missiles for submarines and drones.

    “Retreat” is a kind word.

    Obama really has surrendered.

    It’s a shame it takes a country oppressed by liberal Marxists for generations to send this messsage.

    Poland does not want to live under that evil again.

    The US has borne the financial burden of defending Europe since 1945 or so. It is well-known that European countries have been happy with that; they are able to spend on social safety-net programs, not on self-defense.

    While our pResident is a twit–at best–it’s nice to see Europeans learning to defend themselves for a change.
