How much did the military-security complex pay the Atlantic Council to publish this sales pitch to Poland to load up on US weapons systems? http://www.atlanticcouncil.org/images/publications/Arming_for_Deterrence_web_0719.pdf
The sales pitch was written by arms salesmen Richard Shirreff, a partner at Strategia Worldwide Ltd., and Maciej Olex-Szczytowski, a “business adviser specializing in defense.”
The sales pitch is titled “Arming For Deterrence.” The Kremlin is unpredictable, say the arms salesmen, and could at any moment decide to attack Poland. However the Russian regime “respects a show of force” and would back down if Poland has a sufficient inventory of US weapons.
