Please be specific, dollar amount etc.
My statement was not about finances, I don't give a damn about what any one things they are entitled to. The Polish government sent troops because they though they were going to get oil and infastructure contracts, as funny as that sounds. Did they get any? Hell no. Why?, because the contracts were already divide between US, British and other firms and their ECA's, banks, etc before the first SF soldiers laser designated the first strike targets.
And what did America get out of WW2? Just western Europe and the spheres of influence left over from the remnants of the Empires of Britain and France. Don't tell me the US went there out of the goodness of their hearts. Wars are not fought for other peoples freedoms; they are fought for those peoples resources.
There were many polls on PFs and else where exclaiming that the Poles did not want the shield. Usually like 65 - 80% against the shield
PF is not a scientific poll. Its was about 72% from Rasmussen if I remember correctly when this all started. But people don't sway the governments decision making. This was a poke in the eye at Russia, a chance for the Polish gov. to feel important while flicking a finger to their former master while hiding behind the "big guy". Either way its not adding inches to their di(ks, is it?
