Pole to lead NATO?
NATO is the world's most powerful military block, and soon it may be lead by Poland's Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski according to opinions of the German Der Spiegel The International Herald Tribune, and The Economist.
Given the growing complicated international situation and NATO engagements - both direct and indirect - in various global conflicts and tensions, a great deal of competence and experience would be required from a potential candidate to the post.
