The problem with some Polonia members is that they dont know how to separate views from their host nation and Poland. They have duel loyalties
and this can lead to some problems.
If I asked are you more loyal to US or Poland, it would be hard to answer for many of you.
A big problem is that its hard for Pol-Ams, or Pol-Brits to differeniatate between whats good for Poland, and what is good for say US.
Sometimes Polish interests will be different from the US. And you may not like it or want to entertain that possibility.
I'm as anti-Anglo and anti-WASP as they come.
Polonius despite my criticism of American foreign policy, I am not your enemy. We both agree that Poland should stay socially strong and Catholic for fear it becomes like some secular antiChristian Western European nations.
You cant generalize for all Poles that we all "admire" NATO though.
Whether left wing or right wing, regardless of political views a Pole remains a Pole.
The problem with your statement is that much of US "elites" are either WASP, with smaller amount of Catholics and Jews. The one Catholic leader of the US was murdered because he went too far.
The US was founded on some freemasonic principles. You know the Catholic position on Freemasonry?
Just, its time that Anglos stop to fight their battles against Russia, with the heads of Poles
Every person who has power and money will have their own agendas.
Here I agree with you Crow. Poland has always been in dangerous position geographically.
Currently the extremely anti-Russian politics of Poland, can create an unneccesary conflict. I dont want any war, I dont want any Pole or other human being dying because of these politics.
Problem: the current Generation is Russophobic. Even the PiS party is Pro-USA. Not Western-Euro but American........
Some are, others are not. I believe that with time things will change. Time often heals old wounds.
There are two main reasons why I believe many Poles are anti-Russian.
1)Tough History 2)Propaganda
Some Poles who are anti-Russian have a right to be angry. For example hundred thousands Poles were murdererd and even more deported during the early to mid Soviet times.
If a family member (grandpa, etc), suffered greatly from Communists I would be angry too. Just understand that Russians are not all savages, they are normal human beings and most of them today are not guilty for crimes of a few.
I have forgiven but not forgotten what Germans, Russians, Ukrainians, Swedes, etc do to beautiful Poland in history. Millions and millions Polish die.
But its good to improve present and future situation to prevent.
The media is often quite antiRussian. Media can influence many people more than you think.
Its good to balance between various news sources, not just one.
The Polish "elites" have become close to Germany, UK and US.
The strongest relations are with Anglo US and UK (at least now under PIS).
The American "elites" are composed of two groups...
1)Democrat Liberal Globalists (think Obama, UN, many leftist policies).
2)Neoconservative Republicans (think Project for New American century, Israel, aggressive foreign policy, pseudo-conservatives).
Polish conservatives PIS have become connected with American right wing.
But many of these Neoconservative Zionists (those who support Israel, large section of Jewish politicians here)
have different priorities. Sometimes help Poland, but not always in best interest of Poland. Primarly to push American interest first.
Influential other character here is Zbigniew Brzezinski. He is Pol-Am who has ties to important individuals in US (Carter, Kissinger, Rockefeller, etc).
He is smart but quite anti-Russian (check out some of his interviews/quotes if you understand Polish).
In my opinion he and his son are a bit too pro American, but sometimes blind to Polish interests.
