Pieśń NSZ: Jedna bomba atomowa i wrócimy znów do Lwowa. Druga mała, ale silna i wrócimy też do Wilna.

The song of the National Armed Forces:

Truman, Truman, drop that bomb,
We can't wait it any long.
Give us only one blast-off
and we'll get us back to Lvov
Take another strong and whack
and we'll get to Vilno back.

Poland honours freedom-fighters who refused to surrender to evil



Poland on Wednesday marked the National Day of the "Cursed Soldiers" to commemorate some members of Poland's anti-communist movements. Stamps were recently issued to mark the event.

After Poland's official underground army (AK) of World War II disbanded in 1945, thousands of Poles continued to fight in other formations against the imposition of communism as the Soviet Red Army extended its grip across the country.

On Wednesday events commemorating the soldiers were held around the country, with the participation of top officials including Polish president Andrzej Duda. PM Szydło and Defence Min. Macierewicz.

The still surviving freedom-fighters were full of praise and satisfaction that Poland at logn last has finally begin acknowledging their sacrifices and contributions. But the total(ly hare-brained) opposition prefers to nitpick, calling the dauntless freedom-fighters "bandits" and even "paeodphiles".

Polonius as always fails to mention that some of them were anything but patriots, such as Roumald Rajs, one of the most notorious criminals in post-war Poland.

Rajs in particular is known for several brutal war crimes and "pacification" of villages.

One need not mention the obvious. Every movement, rebellion, organisation, formation or otherh collective will attract some people joining up for ulterior motives. During the 1970 riots on the coast, Gomułka was correct in saying hooligans were burning and looitng which they were. But like you, he wanted to create the false impressison that only hooligans were resposnible for the disturbances, when in fact most were ordinary workers protesting against food-price rises before Christmas. You have to try harder!

Roumald Rajs

Was he the one the IPN said committed war crimes such as the murder of thirty Orthodox Belarussians who refused to convert to Catholicism?

Shut your gob. you are not got to say whether or not he was a criminal. Other than that saying that he was one if the most notorious criminals in post-WWII Poland is a lie. It is like saying that in the Hitler Germany, some picvkpikced was the most notorious criminal at the time.

Soviet apparatus, political soviet police and soviet judges including Michnik's brother, Jaruzelski, Kiszczak and the long line of other smaller criminals (living quietly in Sweden)those were criminals and there were the bigger scum in post-war Poland.

known for several brutal war crimes and "pacification" of villages.

Brutal in the view of the second part of the 20th century's Scotsman, gentle and civilized in the terms what had been happening in this part of the war during the WWII.

The courts are, and did.

Most of the soldiers he was with however were not as bad as that, just ordinary people caught up in horrible times.

What courts? Soviet courts? There two (at the lest) degrees of illegality there - first those were courts set by an occupier power and second that power had been a gnecialdal oppressive total regime.

If we are to find their ruling valid why would you even have Nurnberg, after all Holocaust and all that was going on in Germany was perfectly legal. Those were criminals according to your logic.
