Dear Germans... ask yourself.. what happens if Turkey joines EU? they will be a superpower on the same rights as Germany.
There is only one flaw in your logic:
Kaczynskis: "We support the Turkish EU bid!"
Merkel + Sarkozy: "Turkey is not a part of Europe!"
It is Poland who wants Turkey as an EU member, not Germany.
To quote Ms. Merkel: We would like to make conference of EU memebers without Poland - PAP
You omit what went on before: While Lech said in Berlin "The German and Polish positions are not that far apart anymore", Jaroslaw back in Warsaw gave a TV interview threatening a veto.
That can mean two things: Either Merkel was intentionally lied to (should that be a negotiating technique?) or nobody knows who's in charge in Poland.
Either way, to call that "unprofessional" would be understating the matter.
However, Lech and Jarek made a crucial mistake: Merkel grew up under communist rule, too. She can play hardball just as well als the Kaczynskis.

OK, that was an eye-catcher for me, and I looked it up just to make sure. Seems like the Kaczynski's really do support or claim to support Turkey's EU bid...
This has me confused, why would Poland of all countries support that bid? The most hard-core Catholic nation in Europe (or close enough) supporting an entry of a non-christian country - a muslim country at that...
Nothing against the Kaczkis, but sometimes I don't follow their logic??

The fact that German and Polish positions are not that far apart doesn’t mean Poland won’t veto constitution. Surprisingly it’s easier for Poland to talk about constitution with Germany then with Italy and Sweden. Their comments are very brutal I’d say, and they have no will to talk over the case.
