Well, this is unusually candid.  Not to mention stupid as fuck.

Backgrounder: Sikorski is the Polish Foreign Minister, known for being rabidly pro-American in a kind of "Central European Neocon" kinda way.  He's married to the noted conservative commentator and dingbat Anne Applebaum.  He's a noted proponent of NATO and his name has been mentioned as a potential future Secretary-General.

So this conversation is really quite striking.

Quote
Sikorski: You know that the Polish-American alliance is worth nothing. It is therefore harmful, because it gives Poland a false sense of security.

Rostowski: Why?

Sikorski: Complete bullshit. We will get into conflicts with the Germans, with Russia, and we will think that everything is great because we have given the Americans a blowjob. Losers, complete losers.

Quote
According to the transcript, Sikorski described Warsaw's attitude towards the United States using the Polish word "murzynskosc."

That derives from the word "murzyn," which denotes a dark-skinned person and someone who does the work for somebody else, according to the PWN Polish language dictionary.

My goodness, how unpolitic.
