This sounds as if each and every Pole waited for the revolution
Of course not each and every but a crushing majority.
patriotic point of view, but isn't that more like wishful thinking combined with political propaganda
Its not, if it is please point out which bit is innacurate, the point is that Polish romantic patriotism during the partitions era is absolutely unpararelled in terms of scale and intensity.

Completely different situation, not only was Portugal fully occupied for only 60 years as opposed to Polands 100+ but it was a dynastic issue, no one tried to wipe Portugals culture and national identity off the map, Poland at the same time was occupied by three superpowers two of which were interested in eradicating Polish herigate, i dont really see any comparison whatsover, in scale or scope.
much more probable that the vast majority of ethnic Poles just wanted to live in peace
Bullsh*t again i'm not sure whether you're completely ignorant of our history or just show bad will, the majority of Poles wanted to live independent in a sovereign Poland and were ready to go to war without blinking an eye, how about you read up on how many volunteers did the Polish army get in 1920 or how in 1830 there was no gold and silver in Warsaw because peace loving Poles melted down family heritage to fund the army.
Out of curiosity: do you have any reliable sources which show that the majority of ethnic Poles (instead of a minority of Polish intellectuals) supported the resistance/uprisings you've mentioned?
several Polish leaders were arrested during a general strike of about 140,000 mine workers.
Thats your inteligentsia? 140k polish miners.
The Polish forces grew from approximately 100,000 in 1918 to over 500,000 in early 1920. In 20 August, 1920, Polish army had reached the strength of 737,767, so there was rough numerical parity between the Polish army and the Soviet forces acting against it.
There wasno draft
at least half a milion of those are volunteers.
You are right in that initial uprisings were backed primarily by nobility only but 1830 one had a significant city backing and the silesian uprisings, the de-arming of occupying forces and the war of 1920 were supported by the entire nation.
In fact it shows something counter to your claims, if anything Poles got more determined as time passed rather than settling in.
You may call it what you like but Poland taking back its independence post WW1 shows integrity unseen in history worldwide, no other country managed such a feat against such odds, ever.
