I agree with your words on the EU, Grand Duchy, Russia. All could profit from it. But things, in reality, moved the other way. Idiots from western Europe didn't want it and instead violently destroyed Yugoslavia, Ukraine. Russia now feels threatened and encircled, with good reasons.
Poland might give the false impression of a lap-dog to many :)
I wouldn't say that. But you know what is indicative of a problem? Vatican genocide on Orthodox Serbs. Before it Vatican's cultural genocide on Catholic Serbs (and finally open ethnic genocide on them too). Not a single word from Poland in favor of Catholic or Orthodox Serbs. Not a single word. Poles even don't know of this. And Poland is a big Catholic country. At the same time, positive emotion exists between Orthodox Serbs and Catholic Poles. But still, silence on the Vatican's crimes. That is an indication of a deep problem. See, Poels and Serbs know that their interests go hand in hand and so there are mutual warm feelings. But the Vatican follows its own agenda. So, Serbs now have a problem. Poland has a problem. Not with Serbs. With the Vatican. Fewer Serbs, fewer Polish interests in the region. Not to say that the Serbian question makes the difference of Poland as solely local power or becoming continental and even world power. With Poland-Serbia axis that is reality. But, the Vatican doesn't want it. It seeks absolute control and prefers Germanics. Prefers Germanics.
With the move a finger Vatican ruined Yugoslavia. Great lesson for the future. Poles and Serbs should organize themselves that their expansion and mutual mergings don't depend either on the Vatican, either on east or west of Europe, and neither on the USA.
Do you want Belarus, Czeska, Slovakia around Poland? It goes by that logic I described you. The Serbian question is a test for Poland. Non was loyal to Poland as Serbs were and are. Show us all Poland is independent. Show care. But don't criticize poor Lukashenko, when there are monsters in Rome and Poland says nothing. When criticize, criticize all. Poland must be objective or Poland would fail. Also, don't fear. It will be what will be but the truth must be said and defended. Awake Sarmatism. It's all about it. Above religious differences.
Lead or move aside because changes are coming for all of us. Racowie are in the move.
