Poland Wants to Pay US $2 Billion for a Permanent Military Base

• http://truthinmedia.com, Brenden Weber

According to Politico, a defense ministry proposal was obtained by a Polish news portal, offering $2 billion for a permanent military base.

The offer may be reflective of a recent meeting between U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and Polish Defense Minister Mariusz Blaszczak on April 28th.

Defense News reported that Defense Minister Blaszczak said he was "an optimist regarding an increase of U.S. military presence in Poland."

The US Department of Defense appeared to hold similar optimism regarding the talks. In a press release by the DOD, Secretary Mattis applauded Poland's commitment to reach a defense spending level of 2.5 percent of its gross domestic product by 2030 as part of a NATO pledge, saying that "These contributions, along with your hosting of NATO's 2016 summit in Warsaw, illustrate Poland's deep commitment to collective security, a commitment that includes the purchase of a Patriot air and missile defense system last month."
