They also helped force this issue hoping it will turn the public against the EU (rather than against them).
You mistaking here. I think that non can expose and turn public against EU better then Franco-Germanics and Anglos. Sure, Anglos retreated in their own purgatory but, before that greatly themselves contributed to ruination of EU.
On this one I am with Poland`s leadership. They won elections. They do have right to reform judiciary system of Poland. I doubt that there could be found any expert in the world who may say how are current EU`s or any other judiciary system perfect. Plus, Poles do have tradition of their own approach to democracy and freedom. Tradition that, BDW, as I already said, was true example of what is democracy at a time when western Europeans used their hands and fingers to eat (as it is well documented in medieval sources), or even before USA was even formed.
So, why not let Poles organize their own country?
Doing these kind of things to Poland is political suicide of EU among Poles. If EU continue like this we would witness coordination of Poland and Russia similar to that when back in past Sweden threatened both- Poland and Russia. Essentially, Poland and Russia would respond on situation by splinting wide region on Polish and Russian zones of influence. Meaning, Russia (ie Eurasian Union), as it is already clear, won`t make obstacles to formation of Intermarium. What is also clear, in a world that transiting into Multi-Polar world, Vatican as force that tend to be universal and planetary also won`t complaint when Intermarium form around Poland. USA? USA simply won`t have other option then to support Intermarium.
This is how Poland escaping to EU (ie western Europeans) and surviving as Poland, within Intermarium.
See, assassination of Lech Kaczinsky didn`t prevent this development. Slavs (ie Sarmats) shall prevail.
