Poland's Former Army Chief Floats US Pre-Emptive Nuclear Strike On Russia

One of Poland's top former military commander's who led the country's Land Forces until 2009, General (ret.) Waldemar Skrzypczak, has made stunning remarks on the nature of the "Russian threat" to Europe and the readiness of western allies to deploy nuclear weapons in any future conflict.

Alarmingly, his recent remarks during an interview with Polish media conglomerate Wirtualna Polska this week likely reflect powerful and hawkish elements of the Polish military establishment who along with Skrzypczak now see Poland as a bulwark against "aggression from the East." The retired general imagined a future scenario of conflict where a US nuclear strike would be welcomed and necessary as "the most reasonable response".

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but has this gentleman gone completely, barking mad, to make such a suggestion?!?

There is nothing either reasonable, or sane, about a decision to use a nuclear bomb; and a first strike capability, makes the optics of such an attack one of the most morally wretched moves I could think of.

So I would like to politely point out to General Waldemar Skrzypczak, that at this point in human civilization (if one can call humans "civilized" which is sometimes a stretch), that what the world needs right now, are hard-one, practical negotiations between the world's neighbors, independent political bodies, and quasi-military organisations ( like NATO) to ratchet down geopolitical tension, and start working on good faith, relationship-building efforts.

I would like to strongly caution against war as being the preferred "weapon of choice" with which governments frequently attempt to resolve their geopolitical differences; because at the end of the day, someone is going to do something so pig-headedly, ham-fisted stupid, that there will be no way back, and we have made something of this earth which is inimical to to bringing back any life on this planet whatosever.
