Poland’s been war-prone lately and now wants to have nuclear weapons on Polish soil. That’s like Russia putting nuclear weapons in Cuba. It would serve no purpose except to increase the risk of nuclear war.
According to news reports, Poland is in talks with the US about joining the NATO nuclear sharing program, said Polish President Andrzej Duda.
“There is always the opportunity to participate in nuclear sharing. We have spoken to US leaders about whether the US is considering such a possibility. The topic is open,” the president said in an interview with the daily Gazeta Polska.
We like Polish people, but they shouldn’t have nukes on Russia’s border. It serves no good purpose.
Why are we endlessly poking the bear? No one is calling for peace, no one.
Unfortunately, Biden’s team will likely agree to it. They’re very weak in foreign affairs.
BREAKING NEWS: The President of Poland announced he is in talks right now to potentially allow NATO to put Nuclear weapons on Polish soil in an effort to deter Russia.

One reason the war in Ukraine escalated was due to NATO’s interference in Ukraine. Russia felt backed into a corner. They see NATO as an existential threat. They tried to tell NATO that was a concern but was ignored.
The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) originally wanted Russia to join after the Soviet Union was dissolved. That didn’t happen, but relations with NATO were strong. In 1997, NATO reported that they planned to build “lasting and inclusive peace in the Euro-Atlantic area on the principles of democracy and cooperative security” with Russia. NATO said that it would not deploy nuclear measures against Russia.
In more bad war news, the UK appears to have boots on the ground in Ukraine. That puts NATO in a direct war with Russia.
