“A coalition of lawmakers in Congress are considering a range of initiatives that would force the Trump administration to demand Poland resolve Holocaust-era claims before the United States agrees to host a permanent military base in the country that has come to be known as Fort Trump, according to multiple U.S. officials and other sources working on the matter.
The Trump administration and Polish officials have been in talks for some time to establish a new permanent U.S. military base in the country to counter threats posed by Russia and Iranian regime assets known to have plotted terror attacks in the region.
However, many members of Congress and top Jewish communal officials behind the scenes have been lobbying the Trump administration and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to amplify the matter. …”
In order to have Fort Blompf, Poland will have to agree to shoulder a mountain of Holocaust guilt like Germany. Apparently, the guiding principle of American foreign policy under the Trump administration is consulting with Bibi Netanyahu to put the interests of Israel First.
It is things like this which make me miss the dignity we had under Barack Obama. We’re supposed to be the world’s most powerful country and yet this shitty little country in the Middle East is literally dictating our foreign policy to us. We’re on the verge of a devastating war with Iran because it is taboo to talk about the subject. Why on earth do we still have this dumb taboo in the 21st century?
Note: We didn’t realize how good we had it under Obama until Blompf became president and let John Bolton take the wheel. It’s a small miracle he hasn’t crashed the car yet.
