BB, Poles didn't follow the Soviet ideology
It wasn't about ideologies...nobody asked Poles to become Nazis...again, it was about
Real Politik and doing the best with the cards given. That is the DUTY of every voted politician, but the polish ones failed totally. They lost not only their freedom, they left their country open to destruction and to become the killing fields of BOTH evils, being opressed and occupied for the next half century!
NOTHING to be proud of !
Morality is irrelevant? What is wrong and what is right? It's not important to you? Are you sure?
Moralizing is always repulsive if it is used with hindsight to judge people.
You never had to walk in their boots a minute so stop pretending. You will never know
what you would have felt or done.
Not only. It was about freedom, for example :)
Poland WAS a free country till '39. Acting like a yapping chihuahua against BOTH, Russia AND Germany did not help them to stay that way.
Not to mention that Poland also had no qualms to take part in the dismembering of Czechoslovakia as it was still free.
Had been Poland more agreeable there would be no Poland and we would speak German (if we would be alive, that is)...
Look at Czechoslovakia...they don't speak German nor are they dead last time I looked.
Bratwurst Boy, Russians went through hell during the war as well.
Russian life was hell BEFORE Hitler invaded and it stayed hell after the war was over thanks to Stalin.
For me the only difference between both is that Stalin was content to make the life hell for people in his empire and under his whip whereas most Germans could count on a quite good life under Hitler who was more concentrated on making non-aryan people's lifes hell.
Then you're wrong :)
It's a jewish line of argumentation...putting their folks in the forefront...preferring Stalinism and the Russians just because more Jews were in the russian ranks and more part of the killing than of the killed...so excuse me!
