#1 The main problem is this nationalistic polish president punching over its weight.

#3 "The main problem is this nationalistic polish president punching over its weight" ? Eh?

Poland can and has shown it will deploy it's military in force. Something Germany is grudging to do. Besides Afghanistan and the Balkans token deployments, Germany talk over way over it's weight.

#5 The EU is going to pay for its support of the 'right of return' of Palestinians. Either it is a principle that applies in both cases or one that can not stand. Make the Paleos happy and get fundamental fissures in the Union, or preserve the Union and undermine the Paleos. Now I know the Euros are not known for consistency or integrity but this is one big uh-oh waiting to eat their lunch.

#8 I think Poland is being honest and moderate in their views (an impossibility for the Germs). They have been a good and consistent friend to us in the states. I hope they push the envelope as far as they need to get what they have comming. After all, when you lose a war you may lose territory. Would you expect Israel to give back the Golan Heights, or the Gaza Strip. Oh, wait....

#9 If I recall my history, at the end of the second world war Russia moved Poland west by moving both the Russian/Polish border and the Polish/German Border. Poland didn't net any territory, Russia did.

If Germany wants its land back they should start by talking Putin into giving back what Russia took. That way Poland doesn't get screwed (again).
