FAIR ???? do you know the millions of euros poland is siphoning from the eu. Where do you think the finance to build all your new roads etc is coming from. ???
poland gets FAR more out of the eu than what germany, britain, frane, italy get etc.
you are an eastern european nation for christ sake. we owe you nothing, the germans owe you nothing either.
In reference to the Marshall Plan, during the years 1948-1951, Western European nations received $12 billion US dollars in aid to rebuild after WWII. The largest recipients were: UK ($3.3 billion), France ($2.3 billion), West Germany ($1.5 billion). Adjust these figures for inflation and convert this to today's value. It's an enormous sum. Poland never received any of this aid due to the Soviet Union's influence and control, thus preventing all Eastern Block nations from taking part in the Marshall Plan. So tell me, who received a hand out? Poland was further occupied for the next 45 years until 1990. Think about it. Most Western European nations had this enormous monetary aid and time advantage to rebuild. Poland has only just begun.
It is quite surprising that Germany, who instigated WWII, was the cause of millions of deaths and destruction of entire cities and infrastructures, was part of the opposing Axis countries, along with Italy, received this sort of aid. Poland was one of the most devoted Allied countries during WWII with the largest underground operation, and ended up betrayed and neglected by its allies.
I'm not saying Germany shouldn't have received aid, however, Poland didn't.
Poland is not an "Eastern European" nation. It is a "Central European" nation, culturally and geographically.
