      It takes all the technical proficiency our system can provide to make up for the woeful lack of popular support and political savvy of most of the regimes that the West has thus far sought to prop up.........Bernard Fall

      feverishly believing he could get NATO Article 5 – Article 5 states that the parties to the NATO treaty “agree that an armed attack against one or more of them in Europe or North America shall be considered an attack against them all.” – invoked and put into action so quickly that the actions taken and consequences incurred would be irreversible and unstoppable.  And the G20 would be conveniently meeting, so heads of state would be immediately available to be pressured into compliance.

      From the comments – Scott Ritter pointed out that the incoming Russizn missiles were moving east to west and so Ukraine’s air defenses would be going west to east. The opposite direction of this strike into Poland. As an expert he said the only way for this to happen is for someone on this battery to paint a radar signal in the direction of Poland. That it could not have happened by mistake.

      Either Zelensky is a loose cannon, or the West is.  Seems like a desperate move. Just my opinion, of course.

      "Sometimes when I try to understand a person's motives, I play a little game. I assume the worst. What's the worst reason they could possibly have for saying what they say and doing what they do? Then I ask myself, 'How well does that reason explain what they say and what they do?'" GRRM

        He’s trying to get the US and NATO troops fully involved in Ukraine. There have been, and still are, attacks on civilians in eastern Ukraine and in Russia hoping Russia would respond in a way that would get the US and NATO into Russia.

        Almost happened, too – an un-named high ranking US source told the AP that the missiles in Poland were Russian.
