As soon as it went into alliance with Poland, it continued to support Polish independence till Poland freed itself from Soviet occupation.
Nope, people in referendum did, not governments.
How does that change anything? Look, all it takes is a single veto. It's happened millions of times before: de Gaulle's "empty Chair", Thatcher's "our money back" veto and now the Franco-Dutch "no!" This is natural and to be expected, it's a consensual process and there's absolutely no reason to feel threatened by it.
Then why are there still pushing it for it, when according to law it is dead.
What the Eurocon? Well there's always room for compromise. The prime problem with the Eurocon was that it was an example of unspeech, it used too many words to say nothing.
France and Germany are openly letting Russians control their corporations and firms. The combined power of those two(not mentioning even Russia) would lead to domination of Polish military industry by France and Germany. This would put Polish independence at peril because France and Germany are clearly pursuing an alliance with Russia to achieve hegemony over other European states.
Gibberish. Look, if you want to live in the 1930s forever, be my guest. Some of us have moved on and understand that in Europe we live increasingly without borders, without animosity, indeed, without sufficient militaries to even threaten one another.
Our states serve our people, they are foremost welfare states, no less.
I am a Polish citizen, not a rat upon whom one makes experiments. I don't want to take part in any experiments on my nation, they were enough of them under German occupation.
Then I should hope you lobby right now to leave the EU. The EU is an experiment, it has been ever since the Cold and Steel Community. An experiment in fraternity and kinship to end war and the hateful nationalism which brought our continent 2 world wars.
I hope EU will be open to our ideas about European policy.
That's what it's about. You know, I hope the Poles don't end up like the British. The British rejected every idea from the start, ended up regreting their emotionalism and joining 10 years later, and then
complaining that they didn't have enough of a say in shaping the institutions..
I get the impression from speaking to you that Poland is still an extremely insecure nation. It's natural enough given Poland's often extremely tragic history since the end of the Commonwealth but it's rather sad that NATO and EU membership is not enough to dispel this.
