Poland's ambition leads EU to ecological disaster

EU
Strange things have been happening in the EU lately. Poland tends to be a leader while providing a quite specific policy, not abiding by European laws and refusing to implement all-European decisions. At the same time Poland gets 3 times more grants from the EU budget than pays contributions. But it wants to represent the EU on the international scene.

The Vistula Split Channel is just another Polish project that is to be done without European permissions while not considering possible outcomes for the region. That is, Poland wants to act independently in this matter. I just want to wonder what force or who feeds Polish ambition and gives it strength to act contrary to European structures and rules. The answer is quite simple.





The letter says Poland isn't so independent in its desire to build the channel for the project was financed by the USA, which is keen on the channel opening free access to one more Polish port of Elblag. It'll help the USA to locate more troops, missiles and tanks in Poland to stand up against Russia.

Yet, do the Polish people need that? It turns out that they weren't even asked. Mr. Kaczyński has given up both the Poles and the territory covering the bargain with a fairy-tale about Elblag's trade perspectives. Kaczyński has sold not only the ecology of Poland, but also of the whole Baltic region as well.

The residents of the Krynica Morska resort located on the Vistula Split write petitions , organize ecological protests in hope the nature of the region will be protected by ecologists and the leadership of Poland. STOP PRZEKOPOWI MIERZEI WIŚLANEJ - WIDOKÓWKI Z KRYNICY DO KOMISJI EUROPEJSKIEJ W BRUKSELI - krynicamorska.pl But that's useless because just creates senseless noise around the channel that doesn't influence on anything. It's a closed bargain for both the USA and Poland.

Will anybody be able to stop the construction of the channel and bring the leadership of Poland, which is ready to sacrifice the ecology of Europe for American money, to its level? Of course, yes. Germany, France and other economically and politically more powerful EU states can stop these works, and they should do it because that's in their best interests.

Firstly, all possible efforts should be made for the conservation of the Baltic Sea ecology, which was a stumbling-block during the Nord Stream 2 construction. There are needed resources for that. Secondly, the actions of Polish authorities should be put under control because they implement dangerous project for the sake of the United States or for their own benefit.

Well, the middle east fizzled out (for now) and is not the cash cow for the american military-industrial complex that it used to be. We need urgently a new proxy war or at least some escalated tensions to scare the american morons into pouring their wealth into us instead of fixing their problems.

The proposed canal is 1km in length. Compare it to the Russian pipelines Nord Stream 1 and 2, 1,200km in length and reputed to be harmful and dangerous to the Baltic Sea ecosystem.
EU is just angry Poland is not behaving as a proper plantation slave.

Because of Capitalism's constant need to feed, our world has been running out of its most profitable resources and means to plunder and make easy returns on investment. Making war for flimsy and bullshit excuses is the only clear return on investment now. And that's why the major banks and investment funds are shifting more and more of their capital towards weapons manufacturing and making war. Doesn't seem like a safe strategy in an age with nuclear weapons....but, I guess that's me!

Now, the warmongers have another reason to be fomenting about 'foreign threats,' cause the new capitalist Russia and Eastern Bloc of nations has joined the game of making weapons for fun and profit! So right now, the US and Russia are battling it out for sales of anti-missile systems, with the Russians getting more orders for their S-400 and soon - the S_500 systems, even from supposed allies like Turkey and India.....what could go wrong? And wasn't it a great idea that you ended communism in the former Soviet Union?

Sounds like what happens here in the US. Disputes over what a state can and can't do are common and states rights are constantly at issue. The statement that it's a problem because the US wants access is a bit off, NATOs need for access is more the issue. Poland has a long history of being fought over by the Russians, French and Germans. They will do what's necessary to protect themselves. It also appears to be more of a local plea to resist change.
