Poland is very aware of this and could be one more reason Poland has invited the construction of 'Camp Trump'.
The way I see it roughly . Tell me if that makes any sense as I'm writing it having slept for like 4 hours and maybe 28 hours this week
See, the situation in the region has been unstable without a strong central European stabilizing power, it has happened after in 18th Poland stopped to be such a stabilizing power.
What we witnessed for the last 200 - 300 years is a rapid grow of Imperial Germany as a local power. It however proved to be very bad at stabilizing the region. Their success was mostly due to a close pollical and economical cooperation with Russia. Thing is once Germany got powerful enough they and Russia started competing against each other.
German and Russian cooperation is logical and sensible while there is a country or countries between Russia and Germany. If they cooperation would lead as it inadvertently or advertently would, towards weakening them, Russia's instinct is to conquer them. I such a case Germany has no choice but have to fallow they lead and take some land too. After that we are back to a square one. Russia faced with powerful Germany looking for alliance and the west looking for an ally to check German power.
All very messy, very unstable and not good for the USA.
Solution is simple build a political and economical entity in the three sea area backed by the USA and with key country Poland to stabilize that region. It would;
1. Keep Germany in check until they adjust to the new reality and find a very nice niche as a economical and political partner of the three seas area.
2. Keep Russia in check and attract post-soviet countries into its fold.
3. Keep Europe stabilized which is good for the USA (as they cannot remain world power for long without a secure foothold in this part of Europe) and project power in the this region, keeping in check a shirking but nuclear Russian and growing China.
Plus USA can sell their surplus gas they had no use for to the region,...
I think if that initiative and US involvement will be stable and growing. Germany will came around.
What is annoying is that EU thingy. Germany are claiming they are all for the EU. While they are all for it as long as it is a vessel to carry their European domination and as long as they are not constrained by its demands. Which renders all that EU idea useless. IF Germany is (so to speak) above EU law or policies and others countries aren't that construction won't last.
Not to mention that Germany has this instinct to pull against USA.
