Polish Magazine Lays Out What A Russian Invasion Would Look Like
by Tyler Durden
While the recently awakened dormant Russian bear appears content for now having digested the Crimea with barely a burp, Russia’s immediate neighbors know all too well that appeasement – which is precisely how the west in its own eyes is viewing Putin’s actions even if they will never admit it publicly – never works, most, especially the Baltic states, Finland and not to mention Poland, which was the country that got the raw end of the deal the last time European appeasement failed, are getting increasingly nervous.
So much so that some, in this case Poland, are already preempting the next escalatory steps in what some believe is a hyperbolic attempt to accelerate events so much so that a NATO build up in Eastern Europe forces Russia into a provocative first step so that said neighboring countries can get the backing of NATO instead of them too being sacrificed at the altar of appeasement. Nothing earthshattering here, and all in a day’s work when it comes to realpolitik game theory.
So what has Poland in this case done? As the graphic below shows, Polish magazine “Fakt” has laid out the following scenario of just how a Russian invasion would look like, sweeping the Baltics, Belarus, and all of Ukraine, in one offensive wave. Obviously the implication is that Poland would be next.
