Lech Wałęsa has called for Poland to unite with Germany to form one European state, despite the bloody history between the two countries.
The Nobel Peace Prize winner and former Polish president, whose Solidarity trade union played a key role in bringing an end to the Cold War, said the world had changed and needed new ways of organizing itself.
We need to expand economic and defense cooperation and other structures to create one state from Poland and Germany in Europe, he said.
Speaking to Russias Itar-Tass news agency, Mr. Wałęsa, 69, said national boundaries were not as relevant as they once were.

First East Germany. Now the Poles want in. I suppose it’s just a matter of time before the Austrians and Czechs come knocking next!
Will they still speak Austrian?
Worked out so well last time
Iv always assumed the Poles hated Germans..........and Russians
wow i must rethink this whole thing
“Iv always assumed the Poles hated Germans”
They must like their money. There are two Poles on Germany’s World Cup soccer team.
There is a German, and a Russian soldier, which one does the Pole shoot first?
The German, of course.....business before pleasure.
During the recent Olympics in London, there was a chap carrying a long fiberglass rod down the street. A passerby stopped him and asked, “are you a pole vaulter”?
“No, German,” he replied. “But, how did you know my name is Valter”?
Walesa could just move to Germany.
Would be a lot easier - LoL!
“They had one thing in common they both hated the Jews.”
That’s messed up. The reason Poland had so many Jews was because they had welcomed them when others didn’t, and when the Nazis and Soviets invaded the Poles didn’t have their Jews wearing stars for easy identification. Many Poles helped Jews and many were killed by the same Nazis.
I’m neither Polish or Jewish, but you do both a great disservice with that comment.
This will make Putin nervous...for those who hate Putin for punking Obama
Nothing makes Russians more nervous than Germany so close to the Russian border....with the Poles as allies
Germany is the economic leader in Europe....and Poland is the most successful of the former Commie bloc. Probably make more than Russia nervous
They can start with Breslau...
And the time before that.

My Polish dad sure as hell did, understandably. Half his family was wiped out in the war. Maybe time changes things, but I can’t imagine this view being popular.
I can understand a free trade agreement, but that’s about it.
What a dumb idea.
>>Thats messed up. The reason Poland had so many Jews was because they had welcomed them when others didnt, and when the Nazis and Soviets invaded the Poles didnt have their Jews wearing stars for easy identification. Many Poles helped Jews and many were killed by the same Nazis.<<
Most Poles were quite happy to see the Germans haul the Jews away, and they were quick to loot the empty houses.
And then there’s this:
“In Jedwabne, by George Will”:
And then there’s this:
LOUIS CK - Schindler’s List - GOODBYE, JEWS!
Walesa is and has always been a damn idiot. Most likely he was a commie agent put in charge of the opposition to sabotage it.
