Once again, Russia rapes Poland
Any poor souls benighted enough to believe the gibberish published a few weeks ago that Russian relations with Poland were actually improving despite the recent plane crash on Russian soil that killed a large number of high-ranking Polish government officials received a splash of cold water right in the face last week.
Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk moaned that with the investigation entering its final phase, cooperation with Russia is worse now than it was at the start. The Kremlin is frustrating Poland’s effort to get to the bottom of the crash at every turn.
Who can be surprised by Russia’s failing to miss any opportunity to stab a neighbor in the back? Who can be surprised by Russia’s total inability to take advantage of a golden opportunity to improve relations with a powerful neighbor, and to instead provoke that neighbor into new hostility and contention?
Nobody can be surprised, because Russia is run by a crude, violent thug who spent his entire life in secret police, and who values nothing more than violence and confrontation. Like all neo-Soviet idiots, Putin believes Russia can “go it alone” in the world, thumbing its nose at every other country in the world. Unlike any other state, Russia needs no allies because it is a “super nation.” The fact that there is absolutely no basis for this belief, that Russia has collapsed over and over again because of its fundamental weakness, means nothing to men like Putin.
Hopefully, now the people of Poland will see unquestionably the nature of the neo-Soviet evil they confront, and will wake from their rose-colored dreams about reform and change in Russia to lead Eastern Europe into the battle it must inexorably face.
