Signs Poland is growing in significance

In an Economist article about Bush's foreign policy:

Should America and Europe manage to start their strategic dialogue (more frequent and expanded contacts are being planned among senior American and EU officials, and America is also keen to beef up discussion at NATO), they will find plenty else to talk about too, from the Middle East to environmental issues and an increasingly autocratic Russia. But how to get a confidential discussion going, with 25 countries on the European side? One idea is to revive the “Quad” of America, Britain, France and Germany, perhaps with the addition of Poland and Italy.

Just that Poland is mentioned among such players is a telling signal. One year ago, noone would have made that connection.

As always, it's a great piece too. Follow the link
