i mean, i agree with you, but america of all people can't really elect themselves to be world police over accidental cross-border forays. you've been regularly slipping across borders to extra-judicially kill people – to say nothing of cause famines and murder hundreds of thousands of civilians – since at least the tricky dicky/kissinger era.

china, russia, india, iran, etc, are just going to keep pointing at your drone programmes and state-sponsored assassinations (plus support of israel doing the same) ad infinitum. this poland incident does look like an unintentional accident.
it should also be pointed out for probity's sake that poland's foreign ministry is almost itching for a fight at this point. they are one of the more gung ho governments in the NATO alliance.
