United States and its European allies were at this moment free to shape the World in any way they wished.
Post communistic nations of Central Europe, betrayed in Yalta, were now looking for a helping hand of the West in the rising from socialistic ashes of the Soviet occupation. Especially Poland, who's Solidarity Movement was a direct cause of socialistic system demise, was hoping for a better future in European structures.
As always in the past, Poland's contribution in bringing freedom to enslaved European nations was quickly forgotten. Now, the politically correct euphemism of 1989 breakthrough is the "fall of the Berlin wall"; although, respected German citizens merely physically removed few concrete blocks of the wall. And this was after the breakdown of the socialistic system, and after the flight of thousands of East German residents eastward to Poland in search of asylum and freedom.
Two decades later, ominous Western "forgetfulness" advanced even further with some starting to accuse Poland of precipitating WWII and the Jewish holocaust.
From 1989 on, the Western corporations were busy designing a strategy for effective robbery of the post communistic societies' wealth. At the same time, the Western political elite, followed by citizenry at large, reached unprecedented level of haughtiness [at least since the Herrenvolk's rise in 1930s Nazi-Germany].
After almost two decades of practicing such attitudes, the West brought immense misery to countless people around the world, political and social chaos throughout its sphere of influence, and serious economic crisis.
Indiscriminate use of real weapons of mass destruction such as "democracy" and "free market" ideology destroyed the world's delicate socio-economic fabrics, creating a major instability.
Skilled use of weapons of mass distraction (main stream media) succeeded in lowering moral and intellectual standards to shameful levels. Most importantly, imperial media have been able to convince people in post communistic countries to voluntarily join the newly established atheistic paradise of the EU.
At the time of euroreferendum in Poland, euroskeptics circulated an ironic joke that after the incorporation, every Pole will get one Mercedes... to wash.
EU failed to deliver even this. With the exception of brothels, other segments of the EU economy did not produce a sufficient number of menial jobs for millions of immigrants, who steam out of their post communistic homelands.
In summary, one may argue that the plutocratic elite of the Euroatlantic Empire (US/EU) succeeded in achieving its goal of creating "The New World Order".
However, there is one glitch in it. It failed to secure a reliable global "vanquishing" force.
In the early 1990s, NATO was duly selected to become the world police force. Its initial success in destroying Yugoslavia was indeed heartwarming. Not only all political objectives were swiftly achieved, but economic ones as well. Since the Euroatlantic Empire failed to "transform" post communistic economy of this country via fiscal means (as it was done in other Central European countries), it efficiently utilized "humanitarian bombings" for that purpose. This air campaign effectively destroyed Yugoslav (Serb)-owned factories, such as the famous Zastava Autoworks.
