It seems that Germany wants to emancipate from American influence.
Exactly. Germany seek for more power and influence. France, too. But, there is major shift of power in Europe. We are in front of one more great push back onto the advancing `Drang Nach Osten` project in which is involved complete western Europe against Slavs and Eastern Europe in general. Old US administration led by Bill Clinton was also involved in the project. Islamic league, too.
With progressive and venerable President Trump, US changing its policy on Europe and giving up from support to `Drang Nach Osten`.
Now, every Poland`s administration, since the end of Cold War, including politicians such are Tusk, obeyed to everything what came from western Europe, even when that considered anti-Polish policy. Then came the Duda for president of Poland and he automatically started to follow obeying policy of his predecessors, with from time to time cosmetic signs of resistance. But now, when US policy changing, there is the chance for serious changes in Poland`s policy, too. But would Duda have enough strength and wisdom?
Would Duda? Even if that consider open confrontation with Germany, Britain and France?
