Russia "Simulates" Nuclear Attack on Poland

As Obambi abandons NATO allies Poland and the Czech Republic to the whims of Putin's insecure, vengeful, and expansionist Russia- the Kremlin marches-on. The Daily Telegraph (UK) reports that a strengthened Russian-Belorussian military alliance has held daunting war games focused purely upon attacking Poland.

Naturally, the Poles are outraged- and boy, do we have the wrong guy in the White House for the any ally to depend on in a time of need- even one who gladly supported us in Iraq and just about every place else since they shed Soviet Communism in 1989. These KGB-types in the Kremlin can sure smell weakness- and likely have big plans for the next three years...

The armed forces are said to have carried out "war games" in which nuclear missiles were fired and troops practised an amphibious landing on the country's coast.

The manoeuvres are thought to have been held in September and involved about 13,000 Russian and Belarusian troops

Poland, which has strained relations with both countries, was cast as the "potential aggressor".
The documents state the exercises, code-named "West", were officially classified as "defensive" but many of the operations appeared to have an offensive nature.
The Russian air force practised using weapons from its nuclear arsenal, while in the Russian enclave of Kaliningrad, which neighbours Poland, Red Army forces stormed a "Polish" beach and attacked a gas pipeline.
The operation also involved the simulated suppression of an uprising by a national minority in Belarus – the country has a significant Polish population which has a strained relationship with authoritarian government of Belarus.
One man, identified only as Ted, told Polskie Radio: "Russia has laid bare its real intentions with respect to Poland. Every Pole most now get of the off the fence and be counted as a patriot or a traitor."
Donald Tusk, Poland's prime minister, has tried to build a pragmatic relationship with the Kremlin despite widespread and vocal calls in Poland for him to cool ties with Moscow.
After spending 40 years under Soviet domination few in Poland trust Russia, and many Poles have become increasingly wary of a country they consider as possessing a neo-imperialistic agenda.
