Yeap, USA did nothing to help Poland. They only used (are still using) Polish for their interests with words in the mouth: "we are helping you" ;)During and after WW11, the United States did absolutely nothing to help Poland! Yet, the USSR/Russia provided "a safety-net" for the Polish Government, if the need presented itself. A lot of planning goes into a decision of this magnitude. The Soviets, at the time, wanted to help preserved the Polish Government.
"and so find shelter" - and now Poland is slamming the door shut on Russia ... while "opening the front door wide open" to be slowly destroyed from within by NATO? Are we looking at "History" repeating itself? When NATO gets done manipulating Poland - Poland's status will "be in name - only"! There will be no sovereignty left.
However what about the European Recovery Program (Marshall's Plan)? It was some kind "help" from USA to Europe. Based on my knowledge Stalin refused to receive this help for Satellites countries (including Poland).
The Soviets, at the time, wanted to help preserved the Polish Government. - I think the the aim was the same/similar what USA is doing: To have satellite/buffering country between Russia and Western world (that time) and USA and Russia (Current time).
History is repeating. I wrote about it. Poland is not learning on its mistakes, so needs to repeat the lessons unfortunately :(
In my opinion - Poland foreign politics should be to find a yin yang between Western world and Russia. To not make enemy's on both sides and to not sell our values to one of the side. We should not allow USA to put their troops here. Anti-rocket ideas are insane (they won't defend Poland, they are not designed for that). Buying old useless F-16's is throwing money into the mud (still we haven't received promised off-set) Buying F-35's, when USA have full control on these aircraft's is a nonsense..etc
Fighting and shaking tail feathers against Russia is crazy, etc.
