US AMBASSADOR FEINSTEIN CALLED OFF FROM POLAND

Recently, Stephen Mull has replaced Lee Feinstein as the American ambassador to Poland. Some Polish journalists have wondered whether the change was caused by Mr Feinstein's too strong involvement in the issue of so-called compensation for the WWII Jewish property in Poland. The rumour is Mr Feinstein had a falling out with Polish Foreign Minister Radek Sikorski over the issue.

Does it mean an American high offical whose duty is to further America's interests in Poland furthered instead the interests of a (fishy) group claiming to act on behalf of so-called Holocaust survivors?

Did Sikorski get pissed off because he wanted to deal with the US ambassador not the Holocaust Industry ambassador?

Or maybe he just wasn't very good at the job?

The reappointment of Lee suggests that the Americans want a safe pair of hands in the job. There are a multitude of reasons as to why, particularly as Poland's military commitment to America seems to be somewhat waning.

You bet he wasn't if he supported frantically the HI wackos and pissed off even such a patient guy as Sikorski.

Patient? That's a new one for me, particularly given his lack of patience with Lithuania.

Oh? On what grounds you're saying he's impatient with Lithuania?

It seems some Poles and Polish Americans are now rejoicing that this anti-Polish fool is gone and are now singing "Ding Dong the witch is gone"

LOL

A quick read of the newspapers from recent years will show terrible personal relations with Lithuania, even down to his famous quote about refusing to step foot in Lithuania.

Not a patient man.

By "some Poles", you mean "the tiny minority of fools, most of which are unemployed". Polish-Americans? Well...they're just as dumb as it gets.

In that case Mark Brzezinski would be an excellent appointment...

Oh, really? Are the newspaper reports gospel for you? Do they perchance come from the Economist or other intelectually phony and Polonophobic rag? But quote them anyway. Second, prove Sikorski has "terrible personal relations with Lithuania" - give pertinent facts. Third, are you saying Sikorski's statements about Lithuania are irrational and blown out of proportion and the Lithuanians don't deserve them? Actually, hasn't Sikorski and Poland's reaction to the barbaric agression against our minority in Lithuania been way too cautious and patient?

Buddy, Sikorski isn't my idol, but even I must admit that, as a politician, he is prudent and patient as Job, including his dealings with Lithuania.

I suppose for you, "intellectually heavy" would be Gazeta Polska. It's certainly about your level of comprehension.

to the barbaric agression against our minority

Barbaric? Barbaric would be taking them to the border, taking away their ID cards and telling them to get out.

In fact, that's really what they should have done in 1945. Quite who needs a bunch of far-right racist morons in their country, I'm not quite sure.

If only the Poles in Lithuania behaved like the German minority in Poland...
