Many conflicting reports of whose missiles hit Poland? My guess is Poland is too scared to say the truth?

Most likely a Ukrainian S300 AA missile that either missed, or debris from this that landed in Poland when coming back down.

But I suppose we will find out eventually....probably.

Seems to me that, at least for the present, the “anybody’s but Russia’s” option works best for all parties. The “game” has become increasingly rough but definable; let’s not change the playing field and the rules right now.

I agree with Kaii and likely a stray missile or debris.

Not liking the US Presidents extremely poor and some what rambling comments about it the other day. Just feeds more fodder to the world press.

Poland has at least taken a calm approach to this event.

Wazza, the US President doesn`t know what country he is in half the time, doesn`t know how to exit the stage he just climbed up on, and shakes hands with imaginary people....it is a danger any time he comments on potentially tumultuous events.

I do agree that caution must carry the moment. It is more likely a hit by anti-missile asset that missed, or debris from said asset or damaged missile. I don`t see any upside for Russians deliberately attacking and killing two Polish farmers. But, if NATO is shown to be covering up such an event in order to calm the waters by deceit...then I want my money back that supports NATO. I am sick and tired of being lied to about events by those who blow my tax money all over the globe...without results or accountability.

Respects, Morris

NATO comment from November 16th: NATO, "Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg..:, "Our preliminary analysis suggests that the incident was likely caused by a Ukrainian air defense missile fired to defend Ukrainian territory against Russian cruise missile attacks," he said.

"But let me be clear, this is not Ukraine's fault. Russia bears ultimate responsibility as it continues its illegal war against Ukraine."

Now, of course the media was hyperventilating about this insinuating that Poland was going to invoke Article 4 proceedings which was quickly squashed by the Polish President Andrzej Duda and Stoltenberg.
