As an American and a Poland fan I find it absolutely hilarious how much Poland has been telling Germany to fuck off lately. In this latest round Germany has been threatening Poland with serious action and EU fees because Poland is not taking in their refugee quota. Poland responded with "Pay us $1 Trillion for WW2 damages". The figures could be even higher depending on how much you piss off Poland.

So what do you think will become of this in the long run? Will Poland let in more refugees? Will Germany pay Poland their reparations that the USSR Poland Puppet state rejected? Will Poland be kicked out/leave the EU?

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.

Around six million Polish citizens, including about three million Jews, were killed during the war and much of Warsaw was destroyed.

Article says nothing about this being a reaction to refugee quotas.
Article also says that most Polish people don't support reparations against Germany.

How did you paste that much of it without reading it?

Someone hasn't been paying attention to EU politics. I don't need an article to tell me that Poland is retaliating against Germany. They bring this up every now and then against Germany, actually everyone in Europe does. 'Member the Greece debt?

So, the President of the EU Commission ( Who is from Luxumbourg, not Germany ) threatens action by the EU against Poland over their refusal to uphold an EU agreement ( While in Czech Republic, not Germany ) and Poland retaliates against....Germany? Not all of Poland though. Just 24% of it?

Gotcha.

You need to get out more and talk to more people. Europeans feel that Germany is running the EU because their country has a huge presence and influence in the EU. Germany NEEDS the EU since half of their economy is based around exports within the EU zone.

Countries in the EU needing the EU is kind of how the EU works as a trade zone.

As for getting out more, two of my best mates live over there. I tried pasting your post to the one that's online and got only stunned silence for a moment followed by ".....no?"

But then, 76% of Poland doesn't agree with you either so that's not a shocker.

Germany is wrong in its denial to pay Poland taking into account Merkel's attempts to turn the EU against Poland. But, thanks God, Europe knows and sees that Poland is right and we are ready to defend ourselves and our rights. We are the best example to follow.

This isn't really a Poland vs Germany issue and more a Poland vs the Polish-born President of the EU.

The current government in Poland thinks the EU president ordered the death of their former leader back when the EU president was the Polish PM and they were in opposition.

The Polish government now takes any opportunity to scupper plans supported by the EU president, which often align with German plans.

Edit:

To confuse things we have 3 EU Presidents.

President of the European Commission (the one Runec mentions above)
President of the European Parliament (an Italian, not yet mentioned in this thread)
President of the European Council (the Polish one I mentioned)

I'm kind of curious as to whether this dramatic mis-contextualization of the linked article is a result of Rujikin's own imagination or some other unlinked source.
