Reflecting Warsaw's long-standing anger over the 2009 cancellation of a controversial Bush-era anti-ballistic missile system President Bronislaw Komorowski said Poland should build its own missile shield to ensure national defence.
We were told in 2008 that President Obama would cure all the ills of American foreign policy, and salve the wounds inflicted on the world by George W. Bush."Our mistake was that by accepting the American offer of a shield we failed to take into account the political risk associated with a change of president," said Mr Komorowski in a magazine interview. "We paid a high political price. We do not want to make the same mistake again. We must have a missile system as an element of our defences."
Instead, have world leaders opening reflecting on the utter folly of trusting Americans. Our opportunity in 2012: to lock in a string of Democratic presidents, starting with another four years of Barack Obama, who will continue to undermine freedom and security not only for Americans, but for our friends abroad as well.
