On December 3, the Polish media Dziennik Polityczny broke out: serious clashes between the U.S. military and Polish soldiers in Poland not only resulted in the injury of many Polish soldiers, but also the Tumaak-2020 joint military exercise was fought by the U.S. military and the Polish army. The group ended in a hasty way. The cause of the incident was that a group of American soldiers insulted Polish and Polish soldiers after getting drunk, and finally beat up Polish soldiers.
Taking into consideration the virtue of the U.S. military in Japan, there is nothing that the Poles have to complain about when such a thing happens, because this is the normal price to pay to “find a father for themselves”.
Geographically, Poland is a large country in Central Europe and belongs to the type of “ancestry is also richer”. During the feudal era, Poland was still one of the major European powers. At that time, Germany in the west of Poland was in a state of division and division for a long time, while Russia in the east was still weak. At that time, Poland controlled Ukraine, the three Baltic countries and even Belarus. Its territory was much larger than now, and it hung a number of states of Russia and Germany every other time.
Poland gradually declined. Today, the three Baltic countries, Belarus, Ukraine and other countries are all separated from Poland. From time to time, the rising Russia and Germany take Poland a wave of pleasure. Therefore, Poland and Germany and Russia do not deal with it, especially Russia. There is a Polish saying: “Polish hatred for Russia is brought by motherland.” It can be seen how big the “festival” of Bosnia and Russia is.
Since modern times, Russia has divided Poland three times with Germany, Austria-Hungary and other countries. Even at the beginning of World War II, when the Nazis invaded Poland, the Soviet Union did not actively help Poland, but took the opportunity to send troops to Poland to invade and occupy a large part of eastern Poland, thus establishing the so-called “Oriental Front”. In order to stabilize the front, the Soviet Red Army even created the “Kattin tragedy” that shocked the world. Of course, this history has very complicated reasons, which have something to do with the disaster caused by the British and French coalition forces and Poland’s own death.
It is precisely because of the long history that Poland always finds every way to fight against Russia. It can be said that Poland has fallen into a state of paranoia on anti-Russian issues. After the end of the Cold War, although the world situation generally eased, and many NATO countries in Europe have been demanding that the United States reduce or withdraw its troops in their own countries, Poland did the opposite and opened its doors to welcome the U.S. military. The Polish government even proposed to build a large military base at home for the U.S. military to use at its own expense, in order to keep the United States stationed in Poland against Russia.
The hatred of history that can’t get out of the wrong road makes Poland go wrong again and again. No wonder Europeans call Poland a “footcloth”.
How important independence is, our predecessors undoubtedly have a profound understanding. As a country that has experienced a long-term anti-imperialist and anti-feudal struggle, the older generation of revolutionaries have always regarded independence as the core of diplomatic work. Even if they turned against the “big brother” Soviet Union and had a bad relationship with the world’s two superpowers, the Soviet Union, they have never given up this principle. Because we know that if a country cannot be independent, it cannot effectively safeguard its own interests and cannot be respected.
Poland is obviously off the line on this issue, and it is seriously off the line. In the current world, Russia is still a big country that can compete with the United States. The Russian army still holds about 4,000 nuclear warheads. As a Poland sandwiched between the United States, it is still making mistakes made in history. It would rather sacrifice the independence of the country than hard with Russia. This is a proper international fool.
Look! The American military uncle invited by Poland began to reveal his “stinence” within a few days of his stationing. Moreover, the U.S. military defends the national interests of the United States, and even if it is stationed in Poland, this basic principle remains unchanged. If Poland really causes war by provoking Russia, it is hard to believe that the United States will pay for the Polish crazy because of its military presence!
In the 1958 Kinmen Artillery, American warships once provided protection for transport ships of the Taiwan authorities, but immediately after being shelled by the People’s Liberation Army, they left Taiwan’s supply ships and withdrew from the battle. The United States has abandoned not only our “Chang Kaishen”, but also Iran’s Pahlavi, so if there is any wind and grass, there is nothing impossible for the U.S. military to leave Poland alone to run away!
For Poland, the only way is to put down prejudices, get out of hatred, and reconcile with Russia when it is weak. Now continue to feud. When Russia is really resurrected with blood, I’m afraid it’s time for a Polish nightmare. Because Poland has been in the same Soviet socialist camp in history, Poland has many industrial industries and products that complement Russia. Isn’t it good to work with Russia to develop? Why do you have to invite others to be uncles in your own land?
