Already the new president of Poland, Andrzej Duda, who had given us such hope that he would be a tireless fighter for the rights of Poland and her people, is showing the world that being in the good graces of NATO is more important than peace in the region. It is even more important presumably than the Polish people who elected him.
Duda has apparently joined the US/NATO bandwagon and the sinister cabal of oligarchs behind them. He is ready and willing to help the US and NATO (or do I repeat myself?) wage their wars of choice and to increase the tensions in the area. Incredibly, in an act of national stupidity if not national suicide, he will allow nuclear weapons from NATO to rest on Polish soil, and to be fired from Polish soil presumably at Russia, if the US wants, ensuring that the retaliatory strikes that will inevitably come will destroy great swaths of Polish land and people.
What is the hold that the US and NATO have over the leaders of Europe that would make them sacrifice the very lives of their own people against imaginary threats cooked up by Washington? What makes these leaders abandon their people so completely and so quickly? Money? Blackmail? What is it?
I believe that Mr Duda is a serious Catholic, though, of course, one that has been undernourished in the Faith like most of the rest of the world's Catholics for the past century. Yet even so he does seem to take his faith seriously. If that surmise is the correct one is there no sensible clergyman around that can school him in the realities of the world? Here is a man clearly willing to see a nuclear weapon strike his land in retaliation for one shot from his country under NATO/US orders.
Satan never sleeps, we know, and so the centuries-old hatreds between Poland and Russia are being whipped up by the Lords of Chaos who cleverly use these ancient hatreds to manipulate people and nations. The Evil One works through men and he has found fertile ground in certain peoples and countries. But to continue this hatred in the face of today's reality is pure stupidity. The US/NATO and the other players in this game are happily doing the work of their overlords by stirring up a hatred between Poland and Russia. It is mind boggling that so many Poles go along with this.
The Russians for their part are not being as helpful as they could by their constant Victory Parades marking the defeat of the Nazis. Though Vladimir Putin has been notably trying to warm relations between his country and others, there are still those patriotic marches and celebrations that, frankly, could be toned down. We can somewhat understand why these marches are suddenly popular again: half the world wants Russia's head on a platter. Be that as it may it would do well if Russia would re-think this strategy of super patriotism.
[A fascinating article appeared here at The Unz Review. Even more fascinating were the comments that followed, especially several that pointed out the same things about Russia's over-indulgence in Victory parades. Says commenter "Rurik":
I highly recommend both the article and many of the comments.]
But with all that at least Russia is making an effort at friendship and cooperation. Poland on the other hand does not appear to be making much effort on its part to bury the hatchet.
What Andrzej Duda might do is to emulate Viktor Orban of Hungary. Hungary suffered terribly under the Communist Russian boot but has come to realize that Russia is not the Soviet Union anymore and is willing to work together with all nations for the good of his Hungarian people. Not surprisingly, he is hated for this by the US establishment.
Orban could show Poland the way if she would but take note. If Mr Duda wishes to continue his fatal friendship with NATO his nation will be just another pawn in the hands of billionaires and may end up a smoking ruin. Literally. If Russia detects a nuclear weapon coming at it from any NATO country it is unlikely that Russia will merely sit there and take it. This is the imminent danger that America has put Poland in (and Germany and Italy and dozens of others), and it is astonishing that the leaders of Poland are willing to accept this danger. [Here is a good article on what NATO and the US are up to in the Balkans: http://www.boilingfrogspost.com/2015/11/30/bfp-exclusive-stoltenberg-in-belgrade-biden-in-zagreb/]
We can only hope that Mr Duda's Catholicism "kicks in" soon and that he rejects the siren song of the Money Power and its agents, who care nothing how many innocent people get burnt to cinders in their quest for imperial dominance.
Pray for dear Poland.
