Turkey is becoming the biggest blockade to Polish security.

It is debatable whether NATO can still be considered an alliance due to its internal conflicts with Turkey and differing views on the Russian threat, all of which affect Polish security.

Analyses from writers like American George Friedman, whom Poles adore, often have nothing to do with reality. Just a few years ago, he believed that Poland and Turkey would create an anti-Russian alliance, whereas today, Turkey is cooperating with Russia and becoming the biggest blockade to Polish security.

The NATO summit in London is a special occasion, marking the 70th anniversary of the Alliance, but the question is whether NATO truly is still an alliance. 

Turkey has found itself in serious conflict with the majority of NATO members. Ankara blames the Americans for supporting the coup against President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in 2016. France is blamed for opposing Turkish influence in Syria and the entire West is blamed for supporting the Kurdish rebellion on the Turkish border.
