Default Radek Sikorski

I wish they had talked about the speech Polish Foreign Minister Radek Sikorski gave in Berlin on Monday. It has been getting a lot of press in Europe - pretty much ignored in the US. David Frum did a good job of writing about the speech.

Here is the Economist on the speech.

The whole speech is here.

Quote:
And I demand of Germany that, for your own sake and for ours, you help it survive and prosper. You know full well that nobody else can do it. I will probably be first Polish foreign minister in history to say so, but here it is: I fear German power less than I am beginning to fear German inactivity.

You have become Europe’s indispensable nation.

You may not fail to lead. Not dominate, but to lead in reform.

Provided you include us in decision-making, Poland will support you.
