World War II Begins... 70 Years Ago

I wrote an article yesterday about World War II beginning 70 years ago on September 1, 2009. My grandpa, Stan Cyganiak, was 18 years old at the time when he was captured during the Invasion of Poland. He managed to escape and lives today next-door to me at 88 years of age in Canada.

Take a look at my tribute article here, which also proves as a warning of potential things to come if we do not know our history: cygy.com/politics/war/wwii-begins-70-years-ago/

I mean that Poland doesnt spend enough on its military and Tusk cut our budget further, alliances are worthless if we cant defend ourselves, paper never shot anyone.

Little known fact in history is that in 1926 it was proposed that Poland roll on an extensive armaments programme which would see us at least on par with the Wehrmacht in 1939 but politicians chose to limit spending believing that we can beat the Germans with the same kind of army we beat the Russians.

The article is an over-dramatisation but the fact is that the figures proposed by the 1926 programme were mind boggling, if our politicans back then showed hindsight in 1939 we would be a military beast, instead they did what they do now, nothing.

I doubt it!
Poland economy at the time couldn't compete with German economy and infrastructure!
If we had tyranny like soviets it could be possible but not in the normal state.....

This little know fact is humbug!

I think reason for this is that we spend all the money on the wars in the interest of NWO and its tools like USA government!

Politician in the modern democratic country's are clowns and performers not doers !
System is idiotic its catch 22!

Absolutely, which is why the officers who proposed the planned reasoned to start it in 1926, they said flat open that modernisation in Polish case needs to take course over 15 years since there was no money or industry to get things done quickly.

This little know fact is humbug!

Major Grzegorzewskis plan is a historical fact, for example Poland was supposed to produce 20 tanks monthly which is a tiny amount by any standards but over 10 years it gives you 2000 machines.

We wouldnt be able to replace our losses the way truly industrialized countries did but we could initially defend our borders and maybe even defeat Germany.

I think reason for this is that we spend all the money on the wars in the interest of NWO and its tools like USA government!

Wouldnt know about NWO but our involvement in US affairs is a mistake allright.

Before I say anything I would like to see that plan.

Not that I don't believe that such plan exist but I would like to read it before I can judge its ....realism!
