But it is definate that the poles look differant from germans, british, scandanavian etc.
Do the Skandis look like the Brits ?...
Do the Italians look like the Irish ?
Unless your definition of Western Europe is all north-west European countries...
And no poland is not a western nation
No, that's true.
Throughout history and to a lesser extent today Eastern Europe has been distinguishable from Western Europe and other regions due to cultural, religious, economic, and historical reasons
Cultures of Poland and France are quite close.
Religion is catholicism, like Ireland, Italy, France, Portugal, etc. Where's the difference ?
Poland's economy is more and more comparable to Spain's. It's a very healthy economy.
Historically, Poland was either Polish (wow), German, Austro-Hungarian, Russian, Prussian... That makes a perfect definition for Central Europe ;)
But i understand your point of view, and it's really cool to discuss without being insulted (for once) ;)
