The Poland Ministry of Defense announced today that Poland will increase the size of its Army to 400,000 supported by one thousand (1,000) main battle tanks.
The tanks will be as follows:
HAL TURNER PERSONAL OPNION
AN ARMY OF FOUR-HUNDRED-THOUSAND MEN.
if that sounds kind of small to Americans, it is, given the size of the US Military. But wait, if what they plan to have is 400,000, and that is "small" then what do they have right now?
Yes, you read that correctly, the country of Poland has, right now, seven thousand five-hundred deployed armed forces troops.
And why is Poland doing this? Russia!
OK, so we know that right now, Russia has eight-hundred thousand active duty troops and over ten thousand tanks.
What does Poland think it's going to achieve bringing their army to half the strength of Russia, and only one-tenth (1/10) of the main battle tanks of Russia?
This is a joke, right?
