Polish Special Forces Music Video

Polish Special Forces

I saw a video promoting the Polish Special Forces. The Jednostka Wojskowa Komandosów, commonly called JWK, was formed in 1961 and is the oldest Polish special operations unit.

This video shows some JWK soldiers watching over an elderly lady as she walks through the woods to fetch her mail. Later it seems she is family and possibly their grandmother.

 

Scenes from that video can be seen in this music video showcasing more of the JWK. They seem to love H&K weapons. I see HK416s, G36s, and USPs. Their go to bolt guns seem to be Accuracy International.

 

Here is another video of the JWK set to Imagine Dragons’ Friction.

    Them boys are some real yahoos .

    • Fourth Reich

      Those who can, do- the rest put out silly videos like these.

      • Kivaari

        Or start stupid wars like Germany did twice in the last century. Brilliant leadership that always bit off more than they could handle. Ignorant to think they could take on the world when they had to invade other countries to get raw materials and manufacturing facilities just to get their troops to Stalingrad or Moscow. Look how great both wars worked out for the mighty German Army and its people. All they know how to do is bring misery to everyone.

  • BattleshipGrey

    I find it interesting when foreign, non-English speaking countries promote their armed forces with English music.

    Also, looks like Wikipedia needs to update the V-22 Osprey users to include Poland, unless they just ripped US footage.

    • RNF

      Or instead of assuming that someone “ripped” off this footage You can use some reason and think about joint exercises perhaps? Polish forces train a lot with NATO allies, and its the footage from one of this occasions.

      • Kivaari

        It is even mentioned in the videos. Americans love the newest NATO partners. They have a fire knowing what it was like under the thumb and claw of the Bear.

    • Sermon 7.62

      These foreign non-English speaking countries are running out of their skin to become a part of something that is big and strong, and to cling to the force. The feeling of being inferior must be hard to bear. So, these countries are looking for the next Big Brother to lick his boots.

      • Kivaari

        It is called being free – and loving it.

        • Sermon 7.62

          Licking Uncle Sam’s boots?

          • Kivaari

            Better licking the top of a boot than being crushed under the bears paw.

  • ReadyorNot

    Awesome, glad to have them on our side.. they’re one of the few taking the threat of Russian Hybrid War seriously.

    • SerArthurDayne

      It’s because they realize they’ll be the ones directly fighting Putin and losing their homes, families, and lives when the SHTF. Putin and Russia have hated the existence of Poland since time immemorial… the fact Poland joined NATO and thinks it’s “protected” by the USA/NATO firepower alliance just makes it worse for them. If Putin ever decides to really crank up the Russian Army and send them west, Poland (and a few others, of course) would be engaging entire Russian field armies before NATO even decided to load their FN FALs.

      • Sermon 7.62

        In fact, that’s Poles that hate Russians since the time Russians kicked their *sses. During the last 5 centuries, Poles and their friends Lithuanians attacked Russia numerous times.

        ‘The Polish–Muscovite War or the Polish-Russian War (1605-1618), took place in the early 17th century as a sequence of military conflicts and eastward invasions carried out by the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, or the private armies and mercenaries led by the magnates, when the Russian Tsardom was torn by a series of civil wars, the time most commonly referred to in the Russian history as the “Time of Troubles”, sparked by the Russian dynastic crisis and overall internal chaos.’

        That’s how it started, and then it happened again. Poles used all opportunities to strike Russia in the back at the times of political unrest, and that ended bad for them.

        ‘The Polish–Soviet War (1919-1921) was an armed conflict that pitted Soviet Russia and Soviet Ukraine against the Second Polish Republic and the Ukrainian People’s Republic over the control of an area equivalent to today’s Ukraine and parts of Belarus. Poland’s Chief of State, Józef Piłsudski, felt the time was right to expand Polish borders as far east as feasible, to be followed by a Polish-led Intermarium federation of East-Central European states as a bulwark against the re-emergence of Russian imperialism.’

        • gunsandrockets

          So how’s that whole Ukraine operation proceeding? Ready to create that land bridge from Mother Russia to Crimea?

          • Sermon 7.62

            Is this something that should bother people from the US?

          • gunsandrockets

            I thought it was relevant after the history you brought up.

          • ReadyorNot

            Sermon is a Russian troll, it’s why he’s posting the comments he posts that lean to Russia’s favor.

          • gunsandrockets

            Yeah I finally had enough and blocked him.

          • Kivaari

            yes. The people of the US dislike Russians taking over free nations. When the USSR collapsed the border were accepted by international organizations. recognize the borders. Engage in mutually beneficial trade. Russia has enough warm water ports. If they were not so interested in expanding again they wouldn’t need to spend on such a large military. No one in the west wants to take any Russian lands. Considering the history of just the last 100 years they have a great deal to fear from Russia returning to its old ways. It benefits no one to have Putin looking like a wannabe Cold Warrior.
            Accept the freedom in the former client states, and share in the trade.

          • Sermon 7.62

            Please, tell me more about Russians taking over free nations. It’s fascinating!

          • Kivaari

            Look at the era from 1917 to 1990.

          • Sermon 7.62

            I am not going to respond to Russophobic comments, so stop posting them.

          • Kivaari

            It’s anti-communist sentiment. Anti-Stalinist-Leninist. Most westerners felt great pity for the average Soviet citizen. Living in fear on execution or being sent to the GULAG. Pity for the slaves working in the coal mines and gold mines. Farmers having their lands stolen, collectivized, than starved to death by the millions. It has nothing to do with anti-Russian feeling at all. You seem to miss that, thinking that a hatred for the abuses of Soviet Union communism is somehow anti-Russian.

          • Sermon 7.62

            It is anti-Russian. Because it is blamed on the Russians, although the Russians are the biggest victim of Communism.

            Communism originated in France and Switzerland, most leaders of Communism were not Russians, it was brought to Russia from Europe and it was installed by a bunch of minorities and their militias, financed by the bankers from the US, nurtured otside of Russia. Attempts were made to execute a coup in other countries. But Russia suffered the most. So, shut up.

          • Kivaari

            The West likes to “Free the Oppressed”.

          • Sermon 7.62

            Then free the oppressed, go to North Korea.

          • Kivaari

            That would result in the deaths of tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands. Good people don’t wish harm to the people of North Korea, just the leadership. Like with the Soviet Union, no one wanted to hurt Russians or the Warsaw Pact allies. WE have too much in common with the people. Just not the politics.

        • Kivaari

          Don’t forget that the Swedes ran the entire region as well. That the Finns didn’t like being under Mother Russians thumb. Anyone in the last century that has/had family in the Baltic region can tell you how much they hated being under the control of Russia and than the Soviet Union. There’s nothing quite like being crushed by Stalin, except for being crushed by Germany, to make a people distrust the neighbors to the east and west. Poland is like the Balkans where warring armies trample back and forth leaving a trail of dead and wounded. The Soviet Union deserved that high level of hate they generated in the west. Heavy handed socialism murdered tens of millions of people. I hope Poland, Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia and Finland never have to suffer under the thumb of Russia ever again. Putin needs to recognize existing borders, withdraw from Crimea and Eastern Ukraine and accept peace. Keep up the fight against Islamic terrorism, as it threatens everyone east or west.

          • Sermon 7.62

            Ignoramus

            “In May 1917 the Latvian Regiments transferred their loyalty to the Bolsheviks. They became known as Red Latvian Riflemen and actively participated in the Russian Civil War. The Riflemen took an active part in the suppression of anti-Bolshevik uprisings in Moscow and Yaroslavl in 1918. They fought against Estonia, Denikin, Yudenich, and Wrangel.”

            “The Latvian Red Riflemen were instrumental in the attempt to establish Soviet rule in Latvia in 1919. They suffered great losses of personnel due to the decreasing popularity of Bolshevik ideas among the Latvian Riflemen and Latvians generally, and the majority were re-deployed to other fronts of the Russian Civil War.”

          • Kivaari

            I had a doctor that was from there. They loved the Germans, and actually fled to Germany as the Soviets were closing in. I also had a friend whose whole family and their village was wiped off the planet by the Germans. He had been in the Imperial Russian Army. Like my grand dad, but he made it to Canada before Stalin and Lenin did their thing.

      • Fourth Reich

        The Germans and Russians should carve up Poland

        • SerArthurDayne

          Cause it worked out for both sides so well LAST time…….oh wait…..

          • Sermon 7.62

            “The war’s main area of contention lies in Ukraine and Belarus and formed, until the middle of the 14th century, part of the state of Kievan Rus’. After a period of internecine wars and the Mongolian invasion of 1240, these lands became objects of expansion for Poland and Lithuania.”

          • Kivaari

            Russians were centuries behind even central European cultures. Outside of major cities they lived a very backwards life. Not uncommon in Europe outside of cities.

          • Sermon 7.62

            Not true. Just read about Novgorod veche.

            “The traditional scholarship lists among the powers of the veche the election of the town officials such as the posadnik and even the archbishop (he was then sent to the metropolitan for consecration); it also invited in and dismissed the princes.”

            During the same times in Europe people used to gather in public squares to see heretics being burned at the stake.

        • Please, do humanity a favor and don’t make any children.

            I have 2 beautiful little Aryan boys who come from good 100% German stock.

      • ReadyorNot

        On point SerArthurDayne, they should spend some cash on their own internet propaganda army like the Russians do and troll Russian sites with anti-Putin propaganda.

        • Sermon 7.62

          All Russian sites are frequented by anti-Russian trolls.

          • ReadyorNot

            Yeah right. Seems like the 30 Ruble Army keeps expanding out into Western territory though, interesting.

          • Sermon 7.62

            This is Internet, babe. There are no territories, it’s a common space.

            State-sponsored Internet propaganda: Operation Earnest Voice, officially started in 2011 (US), iArmy (Ukraine), Israeli trolls, UK “Online Covert Action” and other missions by the Joint Threat Research Intelligence Group, I suggest reading this article and the references. Russia has a right to defend itself.

          • ReadyorNot

            You’re totally 30 Ruble Army, how’s the weather in St. Petersburg?

          • Sermon 7.62

            You, and your 6-comment friend’s account started posting propaganda here, for no reason at all, and now I am accused of being a troll? Chill out, idiot.

          • ReadyorNot

            “6-comment friend”? Maybe it’s you that needs to chill out, stooge.

          • Sermon 7.62

            Yes, he has made 7 comments so far, including the last one. He is a troll. So go catch a Pokemon, kid.

          • ReadyorNot

            More rubles for you Comrade, good job! Putin loves his slave labor.

          • ReadyorNot

            Goon.

          • Kivaari

            For good reason to many of us. We grew up when the USSR was the devil incarnate. When the atrocities of Stalin were fresh in the mind, and still on-going for some of us. When we had bunkers just in case the Soviets decided to send missiles flying our way. Or bombers. We have anti-aircraft missile sites all around our large cities because the threat was real enough to cause us to spend billions on defense.

          • Sermon 7.62

            The US of Merica commited the first and the last atomic bombings so far. Not Russia.

          • Kivaari

            It was a good thing as well. I love how the USSR jumped into the Japanese theater of War in the last 4 weeks of the war. In “Sentinels of Peace” (Progress Printing – Moscow) the Soviets took credit for winning the war against Japan. No mention of US forces doing the grunt work in the Pacific, nor the Brits and Chinese Nationalists.
            We used nukes to end a war. It worked and no one used them again. MAD worked and then we outspent the Soviets on defense. Money worked to end the Soviet Union. Isn’t it great that we didn’t nuke each other. We’ed have won, but we didn’t want to hurt the Russian people.

          • Sermon 7.62

            This is insane. Don’t respond to this and stop talking to me.

          • Kivaari

            It’s hard to find supporters of the Soviet era and the lingering defense of such bad people doing such bad things to so many people.

  • Harry’s Holsters

    This is great marketing. It has that video game feel people want to think the military is like.

    I’m glad the world has rough men like these ready to defend us against watermelon threats the world over.

    The videos are actually pretty great.

  • Jarosław Skiba

    There’s not only JWK in the 2nd video but also FORMOZA, GROM and AGAT. And only the 1st video is official, others are fan-made.

  • Thamuze Ulfrsson

    The Poles and the French are basically the only European Nations pulling their weight in regard to NATO obligations next to the US. We ought to charge the rest rent for being so lackluster in regard to contributions of personnel & material support.

    • Fourth Reich

      NATO is a joke- the US(taxpayers) still pays for the vast majority of this Cold War relic.

      What, the SS are your idols?

  • Grzegorz Widera

    This old lady is most probably member of the 2 WW Polish guerrilla units Zośka, Parasol or Miotła. The text at 2:33 actually mention that JWK is continuing the honor and tradition of this units and 1st Commando.

  • Weird—-

  • Puke

    I worked with the Polish on my first Iraq deployment and they were studs. I will always remember when we had contact in a village that was known to be active and we called for air support, the Poles had that duty fall to them as it was in their sector and they sent a Mi-24 Hind that toasted a block with their rockets and chin gun. They took me and my crew up in the Hind a few weeks later and man what a rush. That helicopter is a lot more nimble than we had been led to believe when the Hind was an enemy.

    • wysoft

      They are awesome birds, to the point that it’s probably not a terrible idea for the Poles to build more if they can

  • Dan

    You can opt out of the viglink crap just google viglink opt out. I don’t have the link handy anymore.

  • Kivaari

    What a kick. Great action and great music.

  • Sermon 7.62

    O, independent and reliable sources. Like CNN?

    I am not going to respond to this Russophobic crap, but trust me, ignoramus, there is a lot that has to be learned before one can form a reasonable opinion, so go and read something.

    Books might help.

    • Kivaari

      It’s like the Japanese still not accepting that they have a failed history.

      • Sermon 7.62

        The Japanese possess a great cultural, religious and historical heritage.

        • Kivaari

          They still deny the racism and greed that led them to WW2 and the early invasion of the Asian mainlands. The Japanese were and are very racist. The only reason to invad China, Korea was to get resources so they could go to war against the imperial west and the other Asians they viewed as being inferior to the suprerior Japanese people. Hey, I like Japan. I’ve been there three times over the years. BUT, they don’t like accepting they were responsible for all that misery in the Asian theater during the 1930-45 era. They were shameless racist thugs. At least most modern Germans know their nation went crazy. Obviously you like Stalin’s approach to life.

          • Sermon 7.62

            Southern trees bear strange fruit
            Blood on the leaves and blood at the root
            Black bodies swinging in the southern breeze
            Strange fruit hanging from the poplar trees

          • Kivaari

            A few hundred blacks hanged by a small number of democrats pales in comparison to 30 million Russian and subservient people.
            Abolitionist fought a Civil War to free people. Just because a few nuts roamed around causing terror made it a local failing, not a national failing.

          • Sermon 7.62

            Please don’t forget about the Indians, peace maker. And about the slave trade. And Hiroshima, and Nagasaki.

          • Kivaari

            Never to the number we saw just in the 1930s Soviet Union. Slavers were mostly Dutch. Japan needed to get those two bombs. Just like Germany needed the fire bombs on Dresden. Remember the Red Army lived on American food and we supplied thousands of trucks, tanks, planes and every other thing needed to fight the war on the Eastern Front. WE didn’t murder our own citizens before the war and starve them during the war.
            Japan and Germany both started wars that didn’t need fighting. Stalin murdered millions for no reason at all. Like all good communists.

    • Martin Grønsdal

      Like the books Mr. Putin accepts? With your alliance with important countries, like Venezuela and Iran, and your free press, I am sure your books give much more insight.

      • Kivaari

        I have a couple of Soviet era propaganda books, one is “Sentinels of Peace” (Progress Printing – Moscow). Reading that and you’d get the idea they won WW2 by themselves and that the revolution and civil war were really just and peaceful events without 30 million plus dead people. In particular the parts about winning the war against Japan are hilarious. How the people could fall for all the socialist clap is amazing.

  • Kivaari

    I liked seeing so many western firearms. HK M416s, G36, FN Minimi, FN MAG 58, Browning M2 HBAR, Sig and Glock pistols. Russian choppers and naval vessel. US Hummers. Eclectic.

  • Yes Stalin was Georgian——

  • Sermon 7.62

    It is not a problem, it is that you should mind your own business and stay out of it, because you don’t know the Russian history and lack background to understand what is going on there.
