Military Review

Tail trying to wag a dog

22



The victory of Donald Trump in the elections could mean for the European Union additional defense expenditures that Washington had previously paid. One of the few in Europe who fully pays for their security is Poland, about which the Prime Minister of the country, Beata Szydlo, recently decided to remind Western patrons.

As is known, Donald Trump has repeatedly stated in his election campaign that the United States, if he wins, will review cooperation with members of the North Atlantic Alliance. According to 45, the American president, the United States needs to think twice about whether to help a dubious ally in the block who does not leave 2% of GDP in the common fund.

Probably one of the few who was not embarrassed by the proposal to pay for the US military patronage in full, was Warsaw. Note that, of the 28 members of NATO, only four follow the two percent rule: the United States, the United Kingdom, Estonia and Poland. As a result, the latter once again decided to remind that it always remained a loyal ally of the military-political bloc.

On Tuesday, Polish Prime Minister Beata Szydlo gave an interview to Radio Poland, in which she did not forget to mention that Warsaw supports any undertakings of NATO. It is worth noting that events under the auspices of the alliance did not always have a peace-loving character. She also noted that the main focus on which the country needs to focus its efforts is security.

I must say, the republic can really boast of fulfilling its obligations to the North Atlantic Alliance. So, in August, the Sejm decided to increase military expenditures in 2017 in the year to record 8,7 billion euros. The bulk of the funds will be spent on the purchase of equipment and weapons. Obviously, this fact cannot but make the United States, the main supplier of the military-political bloc, happy.

Be that as it may, the Polish Prime Minister decided not to limit himself to just a reminder to the new leadership of the United States that there are countries in Europe that fulfilled American wishes ahead of time. It seems that Beatu Shidlo was so overwhelmed with a sense of pride for the country, which, unlike most other EU members, once again managed to please the overseas partner, that the politician even allowed to criticize the European Union.

After an interview on radio, the Prime Minister reported on the work she had done in the government over the year, stating during the report about the need for change in the European Union. Sidlo stressed that Warsaw had found a way out of the crisis and had already begun preparing reforms that would help European partners to stride into a bright future.

If we draw an analogy, then such statements resemble the behavior of a dependent trying to teach people, who regularly feed him, to life experience. Recall Poland is considered one of the main subsidized regions of the Eurozone. Only in the period 2004 th to 2014. the republic received from the EU 85 billion euros, giving in return to the European treasury only 20.

In addition, in the coming 4, Warsaw was promised to allocate another 105 billion. Now it is already clear that the withdrawal of Great Britain (the second donor after Germany) from the association will significantly reduce the promised income.

Also, if the elected President of the United States, after he officially takes office, continues to demand two percent contributions from each member of NATO, the “European feeder” for Warsaw can even hide behind it. It is unlikely that the same Germany, whose defense expenditures today make up 1,2% of GDP, will want to spoil relations with the States. Obviously, the missing funds will still be sought, including at the expense of the cash receipts promised to Poland.

One gets the feeling that the statement of the Polish Prime Minister can be assessed not only as an oath of allegiance to the United States, but also as a mockery of the European Union, which, it seems, is too carried away by feeding one of its members. However, it is never too late to put on a diet of a watered up and talked ward.

        Eternally resentful Poles, as always: "Do you see how white and fluffy we are? Do you see what other hoopoes are?" Deflection in their blood (no matter under whom). Historical confusion!

        Dear Tatiana love !
        Totally agree with you. My mom didn't like Poles. They appeared in the Urals in 1939-40. She said that a lot of them were with empty ambition. Empty, in the sense of little who know and know, but with huge claims. Well, roughly, like our "creative intellectuals" like Makarevich, especially since they were Polish creative chatterboxes-intellectuals. Such fool they used to say: "Though bast shoe, but Polish. So what a boot if it's Russian." And they were of little use in the war. Their children were already normal, like all of us.

    The European Union has followed the path of the USSR, feeds everyone who wants to dance its clan pipe. It will be like with the Soviet Union.

      I agree with you. But this also suggests that all this gambia-brethren, including the Poles, cannot live on their own. We are gone, the Americans have come, the Americans will leave, these will have to be pacified by the whole world, like terrorists in the Middle East. That's bad luck.

    it’s never too late to put on a diet an overweight and talking ward.

    Of course, you can put on a diet, but given Polish ambitions, you even need to. But who in the EU would dare to propose this without saying how to do it? The best sidekick in the United States (after the UK) is more expensive to touch. Therefore, they silently swallow the pill and pretend that they did not hear anything.

    What-what, and the ability to wave to the strong, psheks always differed.
    True, in the 39th this did not help them much. I think that even now, if something happens, their masters will not hesitate to wipe Poland in front of everyone.

    Like dogs, all the same, they fondle the new owner. Ugh, God forgive me. And they call themselves "the state", "Poland". Why only give information about them? Unclear. Or enter a heading, or something, "From the life of the animal world." Whoever wants to reads.

    Almost nine lard of pink pieces of paper ... Hmmm. However, in the case of a global boom, Poland is again unlikely to last more than a month.
    Is it worth it?

    Poland is something. At the expense of the EU, it slightly raised its industry. But the manufactured products are not even interesting for the EU, and can only be claimed in Russia. But she doesn’t want to trade with Russia - she’ll just fight. Theater of the absurd.

    Everything is going as it should. European hyena, it’s Poland, it’s the Commonwealth again in its legal role, the role of the six and the mongrel. Again they will be beaten and again no one will intercede for the panamanism.
    The Poles chose their fate themselves, although there is nothing to surpriseAs they were, they remained the buffer. There is a lot of ambition, but ... the king is naked ...

    What is interesting in Poland now? When there was CMEA, we bought in Poland a huge amount of consumer goods - clothes, perfume and cosmetics, food, various equipment (Zhuk cars, for example), we ourselves gave them licenses for large equipment. And now? Are the apples unfortunate? Also from the CMEA, who came from the Hortex concern ...

    the aunt obviously tried in vain, but where didn’t she? But Poland, as I call it a country above, a point on the map, but there aren’t such points, let's call her an invented country and let her name be Poland, she is this country (well, if someone doesn’t know what Poland seems to be country) take a good one, it’s kind of like a prince, and his name’s Abama’s barak, when we hear a name we don’t have a rootless, we didn’t utter our tongue, don’t wear this fairy tale, since there are no teeth for a mongrel, then there’s nothing to put a pancake on a lion with gums without teeth
