Almost a Newbie but not quite now.
This may well be the start of the end. Hopefully NATO will keep their sensible heads on.

There's talk that it might be a Ukranian C300 anti missile missile that hit Poland, but that might just be Ivan trying to deflect blame ? Let's see what the investigation brings ? 🤷‍♂️

Do you not all recall when an American missile hit the Chinese embassy in Belgrade ?

On May 7, 1999, during the NATO bombing of Yugoslavia (Operation Allied Force), five U.S. Joint Direct Attack Munition guided bombs hit the People's Republic of China embassy in the Belgrade district of New Belgrade, killing three Chinese state media journalists and outraging the Chinese public.

These things happen.

Stray Missile!!!! Are you going to start WW3 because some fu**wit entered the wrong co-ordinates. or the wrong type of rocket was used?

It was two missiles apparently, wrong coordinates?
I think not.

From the BBC website;


Analysis: Russia has no interest in targeting Polish farms​

Paul Adams
BBC Diplomatic correspondent
The Polish government has yet to confirm what happened close to its border with Ukraine.
But images circulating on social media show a crater and an overturned trailer, apparently loaded with grain. Another image appears to show a fragment of a missile.
In Washington, a Pentagon spokesman said he was aware of the reports, but had no information to corroborate them.
There are a number of possible explanations.
Russia has no interest in targeting Polish farms, so some kind of malfunction seems possible.
And, on a day when Ukraine’s air defences were working hard to bring down Russian missiles, it’s also possible that one of those missiles was knocked off course.
A former US ambassador to Nato, Kurt Volker, told the BBC it was important to give Russia a chance to explain what had happened.
Volker said it was likely to have been an accident. But, he said, we need to hear Russia say that.
Nato, he said, should demand an explanation.

Will the Russians lie 🤔

Apparently two missiles?
Unlucky to have two knocked off course and land in the same place 🤷‍♂️

Two missiles? Russia has depleted their selection of Missiles, well known fact! Surface to Air? Ship to Ship? Just fire the frigging things? Which they are!

One or two? Would you start WW3 because of two misplaced missiles, and was it a military target they hit?

And once again did you have intelligence from GCHQ? THE YANKS? to say the missiles were "hostile"

Yeh OK! you want to start WW3 on a premiss?

For starters the strike was in Poland not the Ukraine.

Yea it makes a big difference if it’s two missiles.

It’s been said the missile/s came from Belarous.

Why would WW111 start, everyone is under the impression that Putin would have the ability to strike back.

They’ve still got enough missiles to hit residential areas.

Calm down you lot.

Let us wait till we hear from my friend Jens [Stoltenburg] - yes we have been friends since we practised firing water pistols at rabbits.

I am sure he and his team are collecting actual facts.

[We, living in Poland although well away from the Ukraine border, have more reason to wonder what mobilisation would effect our lives than others on here.]

I don't think so. If they were Russian it is possible the wrong coords were loaded into both.

I'm not saying this is the case but if aircraft launched as many are a single aircraft could be carrying two missiles both loaded with the same target.

I think it would be more telling if the two missiles landed in different places.

If it can be proved that they came from Belarus then I can see no reason why they should not be on the receiving end of a couple of cruise missiles into some of their military targets if Poland wants to return the favour! Then they have not attacked Russia and it should put Belarus on notice to keep their nose out and to deny Russia use of its territory.

Sounds too sensible for my liking.
Let's just start firing rockets at somebody, anybody.

BBC news at 22:30. Looks like they don't yet know whose missile(s) it was. Could be either Russian or Ukrainian. Both have the same type of missile apparently. Of course the Russians will deny its theirs. Sky and BBC reporting that it seems unlikely that Russia would fire into Poland on purpose as would trigger Article 5.

If the missiles came from Belarus then maybe they have the same level of sophistication in their targeting guidance as the rear mounted defence against heat seeking AT missiles that the tanks have!
