Leopolis writes [1] about Poland's refusal to host the U.S. missile defense shield: “According to Republican adviser and historian Edward Lutwak, ‘the government of the Republic of Poland by rejecting the US offer forfeited a valuable partner that would protect it against Russia. It is an elementary mistake.’ Such talk will certainly convince Moscow that the shield is directed towards them, an even more elementary mistake.”
