Poland refuses to take its EU immigrant quota. Germany threatens to fine Poland $75 million. Poland responds by demanding $1 trillion in WW2 reparations from Germany. Where were you when we entered the age of shitposting foreign policy?
Germany should consider paying Poland as much as $1 trillion in World War II reparations, according to the Polish foreign minister.
Poland’s foreign minister Witold Waszczykowski told local radio station RMF that “serious talks” were needed with Germany to “find a way to deal with the fact that German-Polish relations are overshadowed by the German aggression of 1939 and unresolved post-war issues.”
He said Poland’s material losses were about $1 trillion, or higher.
Polish defense minister Antoni Macierewicz also accused European critics of trying to “erase” the fate of the Poles at German hands during the war “from the historical memory of Europe”.
The country’s right-wing government has dismissed a 1953 resolution by Poland’s former communist government which dropped any claim to reparations from Germany, and are instead claiming that Germany is “shirking” its moral responsibility.
Critics of the government say they are talking about reparations to divert attention from their nationalistic agenda.
Poland SAVAGELY SAVAGES France’s Macron: “You Won’t Rule Europe…French Economy can’t compete with us” and Your Security Situation Sucks.
Beata Syzdlo lashed out at the French president with the plunging approval rating, saying Macron “would not be deciding the future of Europe.”
Syzdlo attacked Macron’s lack of experience and told him to focus on his own country rather than meddling in Polish affairs: “I advise the president that he should be more conciliatory… Perhaps his arrogant comments are a result of a lack of (political) experience.”
“I advise the president that he should focus on the affairs of his own country, perhaps he may be able to achieve the same economic results and the same level of security for (French) citizens as those guaranteed by Poland” she added.
Her comments were an indirect reference to her government’s insistence that it will not accept migrants from the Middle East, despite pressure from Brussels, because it believes they pose a threat to national security, as confirmed by “ultra liberal” France which has been hit hard by deadly Islamist militant attacks in recent years.
Following the president’s statement, the Polish Foreign Ministry said in a statement it had urgently summoned the French chargé d’affaires to express “the Polish government’s indignation about the arrogant words” of Macron.
Poland’s foreign minister Witold Waszczykowski also chimed in saying his country “is not being isolated” and urged Macron to follow developments in central Europe more closely.
“We are hosting an important meeting today so President Macron is not following carefully the news, doesn’t know what is happening in this part of Europe. But this happens sometimes. The French economy is not at the moment able to compete with the vibrant economies of many European countries, including Poland” he said. “This is because French workers have enormous social benefits. The working week for many French workers is four, five working days.”
Watch Poland – and watch the rest of Eastern Europe, folks. Watch it very closely.
