Lech Wałęsa talks about missile shield

Via Warsaw Business Journal via Weekly Standard,
Former Polish President and Nobel Peace Prize winner, Lech Wałesa, has spoken out about media reports that the US has scrapped plans to install a missile shield in Poland and the Czech Republic.

“Americans have always cared only about their interests, and all other [countries] have been used for their purposes. This is another example,” Mr Wałęsa told TVN24. “[Poles] need to review our view of America, we must first of all take care of our business,” he added.

“I could tell from what I saw, what kind of policies President Obama cultivates,” the former president added. “I simply don't like this policy, not because this shield was required [in Poland], but [because of] the way we were treated,” he concluded.
A promo for the Polish film Katyn. The first Polish movie about the massacre in the Katyn Forest, west of the Russian town of Smolensk, where Soviet secret police killed Polish army officers and civilians taken prisoners from 1939-40. Pay attention to the Polish Woman telling her husband, don't tell me about hope.
