Poland will have to pay with money, lives and independence for the close ties with the US its leaders seek so eagerly, Sadowski noted, adding that in return Warsaw will receive a whole lot of nothing.
"We know that US bases in Poland mean great expenditures for Warsaw, not the US," he noted in an article for the Interia website. But this is not the only issue.
Once the US troops enter a country, they will never leave, Sadowski asserted. Americans want to wage wars, test new weapons and technologies, for this means money for the country that has been in a crisis for many years, he added.
The US, according to the economist, has been in a permanent state of war since the end of World War II. Sadowski named Vietnam, military operations in Panama, Cuba, operations against the Kurds, in Yugoslavia, Libya, Iraq and Afghanistan to prove his point.
Furthermore, the US does not take international public opinion or international law into account. The only two times the US had UN authorization to act was the Korean War of 1950-1953 and the first Gulf War of 1991, he added.
Sadowski is very critical of the US for dragging Poland into Washington's wars. "The campaign in Iraq cost Poland 900 million zloty (nearly $240 million). We should remember all the young soldiers who lost their lives! What have we received in exchange [for our involvement]? Nothing. Although the Americans promised a lot," he said.
According to Sadowski, Poland was eligible for compensation for assisting the US in Iraq and Washington also promised to introduce a visa-free regime. In addition, the economist blames Washington for not helping the country to develop at a faster pace.
The Iraq campaign turned into a nightmare for Poland but it was also a disaster for Iraq. What used to be a stable country under Saddam Hussein has been turned into a nation torn apart along sectarian lines. The US also contributed to the rise of Islamic State, a brutal group that has unleashed terror globally.
