  •  POLAND’S POSITION ON THE INTERVENTION IN SYRIA HAS MATURED
At Westerplatte, on the 74th anniversary of the outbreak of World War II, Prime Minister Donald Tusk expressed his conviction that today’s Poland will be ready to defend itself against potential danger.

In his speech, the prime minister said that we are facing another conflict in the Middle East. ‘The attack on Syria will be a reaction to the crime of using chemical weapons. It is an understandable and necessary action, let us hope it will be effective,’ emphasized Donald Tusk, adding that the effectiveness of the free world’s reaction to these events is also the guarantee of Poland’s safety.

The head of government said that every year on the 1st of September at Westerplatte we remember the lesson of 1939. It is a dramatic lesson, since Polish soldiers protected the homeland, gripped by the feeling of loneliness. Poland was not ready to defend itself against a powerful enemy. 20 years of independence were not enough to rise up to the challenge during the critical moment.
‘It is a lesson that for modern societies must always sound just as loudly,’ underlined the head of government. He added that the first condition for effective combat is the readiness of citizens to defend their country even at the cost of their lives. The second condition is the country’s capability to build an army armed at the same level as, or even better than that of the potential enemy. The prime minister underlined that the army modernization program currently being conducted should, within a few years, lead to the creation of an army that is capable of operating even in the harshest conditions, utilizing the latest equipment. The third condition for effective defense is to not be alone. In order to achieve this, one has to establish wise alliances and be in solidarity with other countries. Tusk said that Polish soldiers, by repulsing the Taliban attacks in Afghanistan, have shown that the Polish army fulfills all three conditions.
‘This shows that we are in a completely different place than in 1939,’ said PM Donald Tusk. ‘I am convinced that Poland will win this race with history,’ he concluded.
