Poland is one of the only four countries which sent troops at the beginning of the war against Iraq. For that reason, it is one of only three countries which have its own ocupation zone in Iraq. It is unprecedented for Poland – country that has neither economical nor military power (but the opposite) – to stay in the “first league” of the world imperialism. It is necessery to outline the role of Poland in the geopolitical strategy of US. The role of main loyal ally in Eastern Europe (role similar to Turkey in Middle East) is key and new force that helps to shift balance of power within enlarged EU.On the other hand one has small strategy of Polish rulers : wishing to build a “local superpower” and become an important figure in European chess-board. Besides of this it is necessary to analyse economic interests of Polish business and its unfulfilled hopes to get parts of Iraqi “cake”.
We have to analyse the role of Eastern Europe and the reasons of very pro – US politics of these countries.
