Poland to stop arming Ukraine

Great news for the Trump/Putin alliance:


Of course, the Trump/Putin alliance is still working on the death blow for Ukraine - an end to US military aid, as Trump’s stooge, Kevin McCarthy, discusses cutting off the aid.

Putin must be popping the champagne corks.
Sounds like the current POTUS C-in-C is failing in his mission to maintain NATO partner (Poland) commitments. Naturally, dishonest forum propagandists will ignore/conceal Joe Biden’s real time failures (as always) and instead attempt to attribute the current president’s cavalcade of deficiencies to a person not in office…and a party not in control of foreign policy.

PJ is very unfortunate to have Bugsy McGurk infecting it. He is an awful, terrible American.

FYI, sane people blame Poland for its decision, not Biden.

Carry on.

Putin probably is not worried about Russian grain sales or running out of weapons.

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-66873495

"Poland's ruling Law and Justice party has stepped up its rhetoric in recent weeks in the heat of an acrimonious election campaign, ahead of a 15 October vote, and it has sprung to the defence of Polish farmers who feel threatened by imports of Ukrainian grain.
"Russia's full-scale invasion forced Ukraine to find alternative, overland routes when the main Black Sea shipping lanes were all but closed.

"That in turn led to large quantities of grain ending up in Central Europe.

"Consequently, the European Union temporarily banned imports of grain into five countries, Bulgaria, Hungary, Poland, Romania and Slovakia, to protect local farmers, who feared Ukrainian grain was driving down the prices locally."

did anyone check for a backroom deal between poland and putin, for oil supplies?

"winter is coming"
Dunno. Could be the explanation. Biden’s fault, of course.

But I have said the same thing from Day 1 of this war - the key to ending it is a COMPLETE trade embargo, especially as applied to oil. Only such financial pain brought upon the oligarchs would create the pressure to force Putin to end his war. But those oil sales continue.

How would you enforce a "COMPLETE trade embargo..." on global oil sales?

Would enforcement require using the U$ dollar as a weapon against those objecting to American full $pectrum dominance?

"L’Éclaireur: At a time when the question of the end of the supremacy of the dollar is being raised, you say that the war in Ukraine is not only the war of the American dollar, but that it is not the first…

"Oleg Nesterenko
: I see that you are referring to my analysis of the dollar wars, published some time ago… In fact, this is not the first, or even the second, but the third dollar war.

"The first was the war against Saddam Hussein’s Iraq.

"The second was the war against Gaddafi’s Libya.

"And the third, against Moscow on the territory of Ukraine, waged on the territory of a third country, simply because you can’t wage war against the Russians in their own country."

Nope. A complete embargo on Russian oil can be achieved only if all countries (or at least all countries that buy significant oil supplies from Russia) agree to stop buying that oil. The concept is simple. But certain nations are selfishly throwing Ukraine to the wolves by continuing to buy that oil. They are funding Putin’s war machine.

Most nations are sick of the US using its global reserve currency as a weapon against any nation state that defies American Exceptionalism. China and Russia head that list and the former continues to buy most of the latter's fossil fuel exports. EU countries place second on that list, and India is the next largest importer of Russian fossil fuels having increased imports ten times since Putin's SMO.

Obama and his Ukrainian point-man, Joe Biden, threw Ukraine to the corporate wolves in 2014 when they facilitated a violent coup that overthrew a democratically elected president and replaced him with a far-right government in Kiev dedicated to creating a "pure" Ukrainian state by purging ethnic Russians.

It’s a free country. You are free to root for Putin, as deplorable as that is.

How much longer will you root for Biden's proxy war in Ukraine?

"In a recent article titled 'U.S. and G-7 Allies Expect War in Ukraine to Drag On for Years,' Bloomberg reports that the U.S.-centralized power structure expects to be backing its proxy conflict against Russia for a very long time, potentially into the 2030s.

"Bloomberg reports:

"'The U.S. and its allies in the Group of Seven now expect the war in Ukraine may drag on for years to come and are building that possibility into their military and financial planning.'
"'A senior official from one European G-7 country said the war may last as much as six or seven more years and that allies need to plan financially to continue support for Kyiv for such a long conflict.'"

LOL! Says the guy who top posted of Biden’s masterful unifying of NATO allies for this very Ukrainian War.

Is it actually PAINFUL to be this much of a soulless stooge? You specifically PRAISED Biden for achieving this. Then when it falls apart and he can’t persuade the SAME entity Biden is blameless.

You should be booted from PJ for being NOTHING more than a DNC Press Secretary all day every day.

I think that may have been your best effort to weigh in on the topic.

Hard to say.

Very introspective, Bugs. Way to acknowledge your VERY public about-face in this forum regarding assigning only credit and praise to your beloved pols - even on the precise same aspect of the exact same subject. Top posted effusive celebration of Biden personally achieving Poland’s and NATO’s contributions to Ukraine. When Poland ends it and refuses? Why…this has nothing at all to do with Biden.

You should be removed from PJ for being nothing other than a party agent. This is well beneath pathetic.

I feel a bit lightheaded. Maybe you should drive.
According to the U.S. government and the ever-obsequious New York Times, the Ukraine war was “unprovoked,” the Times’ favorite adjective to describe the war. Putin, allegedly mistaking himself for Peter the Great, invaded Ukraine to recreate the Russian Empire. Yet last week, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg committed a Washington gaffe, meaning that he accidently blurted out the truth.

In testimony to the European Union Parliament, Stoltenberg made clear that it was America’s relentless push to enlarge NATO to Ukraine that was the real cause of the war and why it continues today. Here are Stoltenberg’s revealing words:


“The background was that President Putin declared in the autumn of 2021, and actually sent a draft treaty that they wanted NATO to sign, to promise no more NATO enlargement. That was what he sent us. And was a pre-condition to not invade Ukraine. Of course, we didn't sign that.

The opposite happened. He wanted us to sign that promise, never to enlarge NATO. He wanted us to remove our military infrastructure in all Allies that have joined NATO since 1997, meaning half of NATO, all the Central and Eastern Europe, we should remove NATO from that part of our Alliance, introducing some kind of B, or second-class membership. We rejected that.

So, he went to war to prevent NATO, more NATO, close to his borders.
He has got the exact opposite.”
To repeat, he [Putin] went to war to prevent NATO, more NATO, close to his borders.

When Prof. John Mearsheimer, I, and others have said the same, we’ve been attacked as Putin apologists. The same critics also choose to hide or flatly ignore the dire warnings against NATO enlargement to Ukraine long articulated by many of America’s leading diplomats, including the great scholar-statesman George Kennan, and the former US Ambassadors to Russia Jack Matlock and William Burns.

Burns, now CIA Director, was US Ambassador to Russia in 2008, and author of a memo entitled “Nyet means Nyet.” In that memo, Burns explained to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice that the entire Russian political class, not just Putin, was dead-set against NATO enlargement. We know about the memo only because it was leaked. Otherwise, we’d be in the dark about it.

Why does Russia oppose NATO enlargement? For the simple reason that Russia does not accept the U.S. military on its 2,300 km border with Ukraine in the Black Sea region. Russia does not appreciate the U.S. placement of Aegis missiles in Poland and Romania after the U.S. unilaterally abandoned the Anti-Ballistic Missile (ABM) Treaty.

Russia also does not welcome the fact that the U.S. engaged in no fewer than 70 regime change operations during the Cold War (1947-1989), and countless more since, including in Serbia, Afghanistan, Georgia, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Venezuela, and Ukraine. Nor does Russia like the fact that many leading U.S. politicians actively advocate the destruction of Russia under the banner of “Decolonizing Russia.” That would be like Russia calling for the removal of Texas, California, Hawaii, the conquered Indian lands, and much else, from the United States.

In case you’re curious, you have added psychotic delusions to your usual repetitive, boring drivel. And more whining, of course. And not a thing about the topic.

One can only feel pity for those close to you who must endure your tedious presence day after day.

The only thing Poland gets is that they need to preserve their arms should they be next on Putin’s hit list.

Because they know that deplorables like you are only too happy to root for Putin when he invades his neighbors.
