The massive Polish military aid to Kiev complements the equally massive socio-economic aid that it’s giving the millions of Ukrainians that it’s welcomed into its territory to create a Ukraine-centric domestic and foreign policy that amounts to the de facto merging of these two countries just like what briefly happened […]
Is It Really In Poland’s Best Interests To Reportedly Plot Western Ukraine’s Annexation?
The scenario of annexing Western Ukraine that Russian spy chief Naryshkin just warned about would actually result in the largest transfer of Polish wealth since the loss of the “Kresy” after World War II. Poland’s socio-economic stability will certainly suffer and perhaps be irreparably affected by such a radical redistribution […]
Why Did Poland Tell The Truth About The Failure Of Anti-Russian Sanctions?
Poland and Ukraine have ulterior interests in finally telling the truth about Russia, but in doing so, they crippled the US-led West’s propaganda campaign. Polish Prime Minister Morawiecki, who shamelessly boasted earlier in the week about how Russophobia has become mainstream, just admitted that the US-led West’s anti-Russian sanctions have […]
Biden’s Warsaw Speech Was A Milestone In The New Cold War
Biden’s historical revisionism of misportraying the rise of America’s multipolar rivals over the decades as supposedly being related to an ‘autocratic’ threat to the self-professed ‘democratic’ West is meant to convince everyone that this is a cause greater than themselves that’s worth sacrificing for, potentially even for several decades. Yet […]
Biden Wings His Way To The Borderlands Of Ukraine
By a queer coincidence, former US Secretary of State Madeline Albright passed away while President Joe Biden was travelling in Air Force 1 en route to Europe on what is probably the most crucial diplomatic mission of his presidency. The general expectation is that 80-year old Biden is personally undertaking […]
The Ukraine War And The “Good” Refugee
“These people are not people we are used to… these people are Europeans.” Kiril Petkov, Bulgarian Prime Minister, Associated Press, March 1, 2022 In the history of accepting refugees, countries have shown more than an erratic streak. Universal human characteristics have often been overlooked in favour of the particular: race, […]
Will Poland Expand Its Territory At The Expense Of Ukraine?
An introduction of Polish troops seems the most realistic of the existing options of quick assistance to Ukraine. If this happens, it would be a big victory for London and Washington in the short term, but the consequences of this in the long haul will be hard to predict. Just […]
Moscow Confronts ‘Good Cop, Bad Cop’
Americans use the slang “lockstep” recalling a characteristic trait of their prisons of the 19th century when inmates had to shuffle step due to the chain that linked their legs. But the US President Joe Biden used that powerful evocative metaphor to convey on Monday that his country and Germany […]
Ukraine, Belarus In The Eye Of The Storm
Wouldn’t that be a delicious irony — the British defence secretary Ben Wallace rushing to Warsaw on Thursday to work up detailed plans to strengthen Poland’s border fence with Belarus? Britain had partnered the US in the invasion of Iraq in 2003 and is now the self-appointed protector of the […]
Manufactured Cruelties: Belarus, Poland And The Refugee Crisis
Refugee crises are often manufactured by governments. They can be done at the source: war, famine, rapacious institutions. They can also be manufactured by the refusal of governments to accept those seeking asylum, sanctuary and refuge. The latter is very much in evidence in Europe: governments of the European Union […]
The Truth Behind Eastern Europe’s Migrant Crisis
These deeper strategic dimensions show just how complicated the Eastern European Migrant Crisis is. Eastern Europe’s Migrant Crisis has taken the continent by storm and unexpectedly become its top security concern. Poland accuses Belarus of waging “hybrid warfare” through “Weapons of Mass Migration” as an asymmetrical response to the West’s […]
Poland’s Eastern Migrant Crisis Has A Psychological Effect On Its Population
What follows are five observations about how all of this has instilled fear and fury in the hearts of so many Poles. Much has been written over the months about the potential reasons for the Migrant Crisis that Poland is presently facing from Belarus, where several tens of thousands of […]
