/ Jarosław Kaczyński sharing his words with Russians!
completely different circumstance.. i find it extremely in poor taste that you'd even make that comparison.
What? I fail to see the poor taste.
The world at large has known since the eighties about Katyn and Dresden. They are both on a par as to war crimes of horrific magnitude - Germany has anniversaries for their dead too, but after an official apology from the British over Dresden, we are reconciled. But, yet again, the Polish disaster has to be the greater in your eyes, and a Russian apology, wherever and however it might be, will never satisfy.
Why are the two poor comparison? Are you insinuating that it is because Katyn was face to face murder? And murder from the skies on an innocent civilian population isin't as horrific?
Please do tell why my comparison of two of the larger war crimes of the 20th century is facile, or in bad taste? Maybe in bad taste for Germans then? Or are you saying they are the scum of the earth and their plight doesn't equal the Poles because of war which their grandfathers waged? The women and children of Dresden had nothing to say in the matter - I'mnot going to comment on Katyn because that's you Poles to argue - except to say if it had happened to us British we would have got over it, and definitely not had it rammed down our throats all over city billboards.
That is your poor taste. IMO
I am British, and prepared to have ill will against my own (war time) government for ridicule, as to Dresden, or for sinking the General Belgrano in the Falklands conflict, so it's not as if I'm biased as to which act was the most horrific. We now know what happened at Katyn - What do you and the Poles who cant move on want? Photographs?
