You are talking nonsense.
No, you, as an expat who left Poland many years ago, talk nonsense because you know nothing about Poles and this country. I said that together with Jaruzelski you should also shoot 18 million people who excuse Jaruzelski`s acts, e.g, martial law.
The poll results have been the same for many years: half Poles claim martial law was justified.
Another myth about communism breaks down: it isn`t true that most people opposed the system, and only a few wretched guys worked in communist forces which oppressed the nation.
As you can see, it only looks so simple from a foreign perspective, but for people directly involved - Poles - it isn`t.
I've told the forum the story
Sorry, I forgot.
However, the only way to execute Jaruzelski was to have a blood bath like in Romania. Did you really want that? If Poles had had a civil war, today you would critizise them and accuse of barbarism. You would present England as an example to follow:Look, we civilised English waged the last civil war in 17 th century and later we have had democracy.
I know you. :):) Do you really imagine your wife or father in law taking their revenge on those communists who had wronged them? How would they have done it? At their homes? With axes? Knives? Throwing through windows? or public hanging on street lamps and trees?
BTW, don`t mention Romanian revolution as an example for Poles because it was a coup de etat organised by Ceacescu`s closest mates from communist government - they wanted to abolish the hardliners and keep mild communism. Today, the guys who had him courtmartialled and executed in 1989, are prospering as wealthy businessmen, owners, etc.
