You're pushing the word 'historian' to its extreme limits there. Do you also describe David Irving as a historian? Or perhaps I'd better not ask
Typical Harry statement. The Polish historians in question have doctorates and are well respected; Erving,? he isn't an historian as far as I know. Cheap shot as usual on your part.
But let's run with your line of thought, let's say that there are documents in the archives which say Walesa was an agent. If those documents do exist, why:
a) Didn't the commies use them against Walesa when he was a pain in their arse?
Because there is a good chance that he was either an agent encore
, or he was useful to their cause. He was so afraid of lustration that he organized a coup d'etat during the brief rule of Olszewski in 1993. Dispicable character.
b) Why didn't Walesa use the five years that he was president to make very sure that the archives had been scrubbed very clean? Instead of the half-arsed effort the 'historians' claim he made.
You are not paying attention. He did just that, and it is a fact he used his position to request TW "Bolek" files and did not return them. Also, when you understand how SB files were organized, it was difficult to destroy all the cross-references in the archives. There is more than sufficient amount of evidence to confirm his collaboration. I know you are not interested in reading the available material concerning this issue; you'd rather keep up the myth. He threatened to sue - we are still waiting.
It would be a lot better if you could possibly try to debate what I say, rather than what I do not say. I certainly do not recall describing Jaruzelski as a patriot.
You have yet to say what you call him, but you do say what you don't call him. Weak.
There's a certain type of person who, when they lose an argument, start to throw insults. None of them accurate.
Harry tends to do that often but he is more careful nowadays since he knows it is difficult to work with broken arms.
Jaruzelski "was" ('is'', perhaps fits better) respected by many - his party had over three million Poles in it. Even people who hated his politics say he "was no Ceaucescu".
I know he has many appologists. Since you understand Polish, tell me, what do you think of this Soviet agent's career? You did watch the film I posted the link to, didn't you?
No, I am not a communist.
You certainly sound like one.
