A rational politician would want to protect their country from war and other heinous events. But not the current Polish government! Not the Catholic fundamentalist ideologues who seized control of Polish society in 2015 and have remained in power ever since. Those individuals appear to be attempting to escalate the crisis in such a way that the war in neighboring Ukraine spills over into Poland in a violent manner, in addition to the massive wave of refugees who have already arrived there in the last month.
