Poland and the rest of Europe have long looked to the United States for leadership in difficult times. The upcoming elections in America could upend the political establishment and herald a new era in American foreign policy. The instability of the EU and Russia’s growing assertiveness are serious problems that must be met firmly and with resolve. Allowing events to unfold by themselves is a risky proposition.

No one can predict the future, but with a firm commitment to its national interests, Poland may have the opportunity to demonstrate that it is a leader on the world stage.
