History is a harsh mistress when her lessons are neglected; and the world’s free peoples invite and incur her wrath each day this adolescent administration’s ideological fantasy of a ‘grand bargain’ with liberty’s enemies amounts to the fire sale of American security.

Congressman Thaddeus McCotter (R-MI) was one of many American commentators and politicians who noted that President Obama made his controversial announcement on the dismantling of missile defense in Central Europe on the 70th anniversary of the Soviet invasion of Poland.

 

McCotter on Administration’s Dismantling of Missile Defense

 

Washington, D.C. – In response to President Obama’s announcement on America’s missile defense program, U.S. Representative Thaddeus McCotter (R-MI), has issued the following statement:

 

Today, on the 70th anniversary of the Soviet invasion of Poland, President Obama announced that he will abandon the country’s missile defense program, effectively abandoning our strategic relationship with Poland and the Czech Republic.

 

The Polish Ministry of Defense Spokeswoman said of the move, ‘This is catastrophic for Poland.’ To be clear, this is catastrophic for all free nations.

 

At best, it signals a pattern of apathy toward our allies and the threats they face. At worst, it is Russian appeasement and accedes to the idea that Central and Eastern European countries belong in Russia’s sphere of influence.

 

Learning from the Greatest Generation before us, our Global Generation must prevent the policy of appeasement from paving the road to dishonor and disaster. Today, in abandoning missile defense in Poland and the Czech Republic—at the very time rogue regimes intensify their quest for weapons of mass destruction and the means to rain them upon millions of innocent people—we witness freedom retreat in a world redolent with threats. Let none, though, feign surprise. The beguiling ignorance of history manifested during the President’s global apology tour foreshadowed a pattern of appeasement; the consequences of which are clear to our allies and our enemies.

 

President Obama significantly harmed the national security of our Central European allies today and indeed jeopardized the safety of all Americans in an age of increased weapons proliferation.

 

As former Polish President, Lech Walesa said, “The Americans only cared about their interests. They used everybody else.

 

History is a harsh mistress when her lessons are neglected; and the world’s free peoples invite and incur her wrath each day this adolescent administration’s ideological fantasy of a ‘grand bargain’ with liberty’s enemies amounts to the fire sale of American security.
