I guess if Stalin didn't start killing in the east in 1939
It was war,sh it happens.
then our trip to Siberia
sorry,didnt know you had been to siberia...
What was left of human beings when the Home Army was formed kicked butt.
er,yes,but "kicking butt" is a far cry from defeating a vastly supperior army isnt it. The 4000 US deaths in Iraq demonstrate that the Iraqi "insurgents" can "kick butt" but it doesnt mean they are anywhere near driving the coalition forces out of Iraq does it?
IMO Poland's fight from beginning to end was heroic when we look at what they were up against.
Of course it was,you wont get any arguments from me on that point,but not the point that is being debated is it?
BTW,Carol,have you ever met any former AK fighters? Just wondering,because I have met quite a few and will happily admit I am not even a pimple on their heroic bottoms ,but,having studied the AK at some length I will still admit,as will AK veterens that ,alone,they never stood any chance of defeating or driving out the germans on their own. The entire premise for operation tempest(the move from sabotage to open warfare) was to rise up once the superior forces of the Red Army were on Polish soil soil and doing the main part of actual war fighting against the german front lines.
Yes,the russian guy being quoted is talking from his bum/fanny but that is no reason for his opponents to do the same,no matter how righteous they feel.
