Or Ukraine for that matter...

Excellent point. At one time many years ago Poland controlled
vast lands in Ukraine. What would happen if Western Ukraine
had a referendum and most of Western Ukraine voted to become
Polish. They would be part of both the EU and NATO in a single vote.

Russia would argue that such a vote wasn't proper or allowed
or recognized as legitimate.

I think that might be a decent idea actually.
Read a trip report from North Korea >>here<< - Read a trip report from South Korea, China and Hong Kong >>here<<

Look what the American media makes some people believe:
Putin often threatens to strike US with nuclear weapons.

Would the West Ukrainians and Poles actually be able to get along? It's a very good question considering their history.  :coffeeread:

Yes you would have to point out to them that there would be no more grants/cash/gifts and so on once they become part of Poland. The UK left the EU so hand outs for Poland are not so big now..  :laugh:

Mind you if they are willing to put their tongue up uncle Sams sphincter like the rest of the Polish art could work out for them.. :laugh:

What's your point Bill? He said that the UK left the EU.

He did not say they left NATO but quite frankly maybe they should.

The UK is a complete mess, how can they support an overseas war when people cannot walk around London in the evening without getting stabbed and the Police go to ones house and bully a person and maybe arrest them for saying something which is not Politically Correct?

They both view the Russians the same way. Remember
that the Russians killed the Polish president a few years
back. (yes, I know that Kremlin Stu is going to
hyperventilate).

I wonder how Manny would feel if then Zelensky ran for president of new larger Poland and won basically combining the two countries into one now having a population of nearly seventy million and a GDP that nearly rival that of Russia. The real goal here is to destroy Ukraine and carving it up is one way. That is why Manny thinks this is a good idea. Russia might have the ability to defeat a small Ukraine.
3) There has been no "threat" to invade Ukraine. The US invented that and fed it to a complicit media.

Putin wouldn't like it because "Poland" (and therefore NATO) moves closer to his borders, and he couldn't mess with that part of Ukraine any more.
