Well this is awkward. A week after the Polish central bank was busted offering favors to the government (exposing its utter un-independence); the same Polish news magazine has obtained s ecret recording of Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski saying that Poland's relationship with the United States was worthless. The Wprost news magazine said the recording was of a private conversation between Sikorski and Jacek Rostowski (finance minister) with such headlines as "you know that the Polish-US alliance isn't worth anything;" also describing Warsaw's attitude towards the United States using the Polish word "murzynskosc" - roughly translated as a negro slave - "It is downright harmful, because it creates a false sense of security ... Complete bullshit. We'll get in conflict with the Germans, Russians and we'll think that everything is super, because we gave the Americans a blow job. Losers. Complete losers." USA - making friends wherever they go.

 

As The Guardian reports,

A Polish news magazine said on Sunday it had obtained a secret recording of Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski, in contention for a senior European Union job, saying that Poland's relationship with the United States was worthless.

 

The Wprost news magazine said the recording was of a private conversation earlier this year between Sikorski and Jacek Rostowski, a member of parliament with the ruling Civic Platform who until last year was finance minister.

 

...

 

Aides to Sikorski and Rostowski said they had no immediate comment. A government spokeswoman said it was hard to form a view based on a few excerpts of a conversation, but there might be a comment later.

 

According to a transcript of excerpts of the conversation that was published by Wprost on its Internet site, Sikorski told Rostowski: "You know that the Polish-US alliance isn't worth anything."

 

"It is downright harmful, because it creates a false sense of security ... Complete bullshit. We'll get in conflict with the Germans, Russians and we'll think that everything is super, because we gave the Americans a blow job. Losers. Complete losers."

 

According to the transcript, Sikorski described Warsaw's attitude towards the United States using the Polish word "murzynskosc."

 

That derives from the word "murzyn," which denotes a dark-skinned person and someone who does the work for somebody else, according to the PWN Polish language dictionary.

Of course - there is no official response yet (but no denials either)...

Asked by Reuters to comment on the transcript of Sikorski's conversation with Rostowski, foreign ministry spokesman Marcin Wojciechowski said: "We do not comment on media speculation ... Possible comments will be published only after the whole magazine is published."

 

Government spokeswoman Malgorzata Kidawa-Blonska said the government was waiting for publication of the full recordings before commenting.

We presume we will hear that these comments were taken out of context or some such excuse but we are not really sure what context they belong in that makes it all 'acceptable'?

It appears no matter where you look; no matter how 'allied' a nation is, it is turning its back on the US...

The magazine did not say who recorded the conversation, or how it obtained the recording... which makes one wonder if the KGB had a hand in it? Alienating 2 key NATO players.
