...shame onto the USA;
government and establishment and, in rare cases but increasing in number, US military copying the behavior of the the government and establishment have been capable of bringing ridicule to the USA.
They way of thinking was as follows: "The US always tries to feed its public poisons; therefore, GMO's must be poisons." However, after a decade of eating GMO's no US resident has died, and the EU's citizenry started warming up to the idea of cheap food.
REMEMBER: You are the US establishment (government) 24 hours a day 7 days a week every year!
The 1st hand experience is why the Germans and the French wait eagerly for the US Presidential speech only with respect to the foreign policy, the rest they spend having fun; drinking beer, eating greasy food, and enjoying what they few as standup comedy based on bad propaganda.
This is also a real reason behind: no bases in Poland and Romania.
Poles are very "ordunk" orderly anarchists and nothing would be more false in their eyes than the talk about individualism and rights of individuals have they had firsthand experience.
When the dislike of the USA and spiteful view will grow slowly in Poland with Polish economy getting better and more and more people coming back to Poland, this process would have been accelerated by placing the military bases.
What about Romania?
I do not know Romanians! Except for the fact that they were, along side of UK, France, and Poland one of 4 original allies!
And because of the UK's and France's inaction with respect to Poland and the Soviet aggression, Romania change sides to be a German friendly and was incapable of changing sides again, later on.
However small may be importance of Poland, Poland does provide counter—balance to the Russian Federation in the Eastern Europe and is a leader of the area economy—wise, politically, and historically (Polish—Lithuanian Commonwealth that failed to reform itself into the Commonwealth of the Kingdom of Poland, Grand Duchy of Lithuanian, and Comodorate of Ukraine, and with the unwise war prolonged by the inexperienced Swedish Empire had to cease to exist).
