History in the Making: Colombia, Andalusia, Lithuania, Poland (Eugenio Battaglia, Italy, 06/21/22 4:41 am)

History seems to accelerate with each passing day.  Let's have a look at the latest:

1) In Andalusia (Spain) the local elections gave 58 seats to the Center-Right PPE (Partido Popular), 14 to VOX (right), and only 30 to the left  PSOE (Socialist), who had been the majority party.

2) Nicaragua has confirmed its invitation to the Russian Army to train local armed forces and carry out joint military exercises.

3) Gustavo Petro, a leftist ex-guerrillero, has won the election in Colombia.  This victory of Petro is another step toward a difficult future celebration of the 200th anniversary of the proclamation of the Monroe Doctrine.  The fruits of this are also coming from Pedro Castillo of Peru, Xiomara Castro in Honduras, Gabriel Boric in Chile, Fernández in Argentina, AMLO (López Obrador) in Mexico, and possibly in the future from Lula in Brazil, not to mention a few leaders in the Caribbean.

4) Lithuania, with the "permission" of the EU, has blocked the railroad from Russia to Konigsberg (Kaliningrad), while the Polish General Waldemar Skzypczak has declared that the area of Kaliningrad is under Russian occupation (of course historically it is one of the most German towns), but according to the General it should be under Polish control.

5) If I am not wrong someone in Poland is whispering also about reclaiming Lvov (Lviv), where in 1939 more than 75% of the inhabitants were Poles, to which we may add Volhynia (in 1939 350,000 Poles but in 1947 just 7000) and Galicia (in 1939 1,800,000 Poles but only 150,000 in 1947).

Does the idea of sending Polish troops to West Ukraine, as so well already mentioned by our friend Tor Guimaraes, as "peacekeepers" with the permission of the Empire and without involving article 5 of NATO, mean let's get back what it was--Polish? 

Is Poland the strongest European foe of Putin or is it a secret ally to partition Ukraine? After all, following the dissolution of Yugoslavia by the Empire, why not Ukraine so the local people can freely express their self-determination?

JE comments:  Lots to WAIS about!  To our list we should also add the strong showing of Le Pen's Rassemblement National in the French parliamentary elections.  It was a stunning rebuke of Macron.

Moderation in all things, but moderation is in short supply everywhere.  Shades of the 1930s?  Historians will look back and identify Trump and Putin as the twin catalysts of this polarization.  Or rather, are they the symptoms?
