Sokrates, if you had been in the position of Germany it would had been YOU starting the wars.
Rubbish, we were in the position of Germany from 1400s to 1650s, thats a quarter of millenium of absolutely unchallenged power, the worst we did was mess up a few Moscow districts and abuse Ukrainians a bit.
If you (Poland I mean) would had been in the boots of GB or France YOU would had been enslaved and exploited the half world....
Then tell me why did Poles invite Germans, granted them laws and priveliges, same for Ruthenians really, why didnt Poland circa 1500 just march into Saxony Branderburgia and assorted states and tell the locals its our historical lands and please dont tell me that various German statelets could do anything but sh*t themselves in that particular period.
If you had been enslaved by...say...the Spaniards you would curse the Spaniards today instead of the Germans.
Absolutely, everyone including Poland has some bad pages in their books but you just managed to surpass everyone, even Attilla or Czyngis Chan got the back seat, even Assyrians who used to nail newborn babies to their siege towers didnt match WW2 Germany.
Try to see things in perspective before you go and judge something or somebody.
You know i try, you should know best that i have mixed feelings about Germany, from one side i really admire your national potential but from the other i'd like Germany to be somewhere safe, like Australia.
As for seeing things from someone elses perspective? First you took Polish lands, then after WW1 you lost them and started WW2 to take back the lands their previous owners won back from you 29 years earlier.
You know? I could probably see your point despite all that, national pride is a big thing in Warsaw so why would Berlin be different, moral basis aside i could probably relate to something simple like getting satisfaction but i could never relate to moonscaping Warsaw, gassing a fifth of my people or having newborn children chucked out of death trains.
Personally i whole heartedly forgave Germany and hope for a better mutual future, sh*t happens, sometimes its big but you have to roll on but i will never ever accept any sort of rationalisation of what happened, any reason you might have had in the beginning was not reason enough in the end.
