History / Why Was D-Day So Significant for Poland ? [81]

all those Americans who died on the D-Day would have probably reconsidered their desire to participate.

Hmmm....I just read that one-third of American troops during WWII were German-Americans...many of them fightin in the european theater, liberating Europe....I wonder what they would think and say....

News / Poles call for EU reforms. [67]

What about the Marines at the US Embassy?

Decoration?

Then, when Poland decide to go out of EU, there won`t be stopping Poland by force.

Of course not!

It could become painful once Poland pays more in.....

What I know Russians admitted and apologized for the Katyn. Didn`t they?

I believe there was a wreath....but not directly a verbal apology....

History / Why Was D-Day So Significant for Poland ? [81]

Yes, he would.

I don't think so....

It weren't only the boots on the ground, but the sanctions and the boycotts which made it much harder for Germany to get ressources....not to mention the daily bombing which chipped away constantly at the war machine...

Not to mention that the western forces were much easier to surrender too....all these forces kept in the East, with no inclinement of surrendering, I doubt the Russians would had made it into Germany.

I could imagine a "standstill" in what is now Poland...on the old "default lines"...

Off-Topic / Additional capacity for Nordstream II - Germany plans to buy hydrogen from Russia and use NS II for transport [250]

strange that this had not been brought up by his opponents.

...which opponents? You said so yourself....AfD, LINKE and in big parts the SPD are Putinversteher themselves. And the Greens biggest problem with the pipeline have purely environmental causes...most won't be to unhappy about an appeaser in the Chancellory, who is left to complain?

Germany is right now, in big parts, not an exact advocat for freedom, democracy and human rights...neither concerning Russia nor China...regular empty sunday speeches not withstanding.

Off-Topic / Additional capacity for Nordstream II - Germany plans to buy hydrogen from Russia and use NS II for transport [250]

You sure?

....One of the controversial interviews that have resurfaced in recent days is one he gave in March 2014, around the time Russia annexed Crimea, criticising what he described as the "marketable anti-Putin populism" that was spreading in Germany. He quoted Henry Kissinger as saying: "Putin's demonisation is not a policy, but an alibi for the absence of one."

The interview that appeared in the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung established Mr Laschet as one of Germany's most prominent Putinversteher or defenders of Mr Putin. In it, he noted that there were 1,200 companies in North Rhine-Westphalia that traded with or had invested in Russia, and stressed the region's dependence on imports of Russian natural gas....


----

...Four years later, Mr Laschet in a Twitter message said there was a lack of evidence to prove that Russia was behind the novichok attack on Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in Salisbury in 2018.....

----

...Both incidents had, he told reporters last month, "badly strained" Russo-German relations. However, he added that there was still scope to work with Russia on issues such as climate change, and on academic and economic exchanges. "We should stick to our guns but also look for areas where we can improve our relationship . . . and avoid triggering a new confrontation," he said....

aka appeasement!

----

...Perhaps his most controversial foreign policy intervention was in 2014, when he accused the US of supporting Islamic State and the al-Nusra Front, an al-Qaeda affiliate, against President Bashar al-Assad's forces in Syria. At the time he frequently portrayed Mr Assad as a potential ally of the west in the fight against Islamist terrorism, and praised Russia for supporting the Syrian regime.

The person close to Mr Laschet said that in the 2014 Twitter message he was simply calling for a "more nuanced approach to the Syrian opposition, which was a lot more heterogeneous than people thought"....


---------

If that isn't VERY understanding for dictators than what is this...

News / A Polish u-boat calls for help? [16]

(after all it was a Pole who invented a submarine

Interesting....Google says it differently:

Submarines were first built by Dutch inventor Cornelius van Drebel in the early 17th century (1620), but it was not until 150 years later that they were first used in naval combat. David Bushnell, an American inventor, began building underwater mines while a student at Yale University.
