Life / Im a Black American Moving to Poland. Worried about adaptation. [47]

Poland's bureaucracy is nowhere near as bad as in some other countries - indeed, Poland is quite easy because every decision by a bureaucrat must be in accordance with the relevant law.

You are clueless bout poland. Yes the immogration stuff is o.k, but try starting your own business in poland then come back and talk to me about beurocracy.

Law / Mr. Men and Little Miss series - trying to bring it onto the Polish market [20]

So why haven't you learnt polish after nearly 16 years in poland? This person's english is infinitely more times what you will ever achieve in learning polish. My father has a friend who has been in australia for 20 years and has not learnt english. But somehow i thinik you are more pathetic. I mean, you english complain when people come to your country and don't bother to learn english and form ghettos yet you are doing the exact same thing in poland. Off with his head!

History / Polish flag over the Reichstag first? [399]

more British could have done to fulfil her obligations under the Anglo-Polish treaty.

once again...

"... in the event of any action which clearly threatened Polish independence, and which the Polish Government accordingly considered it vital to resist with their national forces, His Majesty's Government would feel themselves bound at once to lend the Polish Government ALL support in their power. They have given the Polish Government an assurance to this effect.

I may add that the French Government have authorized me to make it plain that they stand in the same position in this matter as do His Majesty's Government"

avalon.law.yale.edu/wwii/blbk17.asp

So not only was Britain speaking for France , when the invasion occured it was a joint French-British command that authorised the French to stop advancing in Germany in 39. They also forgot to inform the polish of this.

History / Polish flag over the Reichstag first? [399]

The first mission against Germany was launched within 90 minutes of war being declared.

Yes brittish planes dropping leaflets over germany. how valaint and honorable. You are a fool if you think this met the terms of the agreement.

LOL or was it throwing a cup of tea at a german flag?

History / Polish flag over the Reichstag first? [399]

I will now ask you to go into detail about what more British could have done to fulfil her obligations under the Angl

They should have fuffilled their agreement to go to war with germany. And no going to war does not involve declaring war and doing nothing you idiot. The agreement between france/england and poland called for 90 divisions and 1400 planes to attack germany, as in brittish and french. The lack of any action by britain and france was a major betrayal and is ranked just below germany and russian sins by poles. so you may think poles regard the engish as comrades in arms and what not , but every pole is aware of the brittish duplicity and betrayal in ww2. Maybe thats why you write denigrate polish history all the time, assuaging your feelings of guilt.

News / Poland A and Ukraine B. Compare how far Poland has advanced. [282]

Where and from where? And with what?

Are you dense? The rhine was undefended as germany had commited most of her troops to invade poland. The agreement called for an attack from france. If Brittain and France had fufilled their obigations and actually went to war with germany , (instead of a dupicitous paper war) Russia would never have invaded poland. But i mean you can't expect much more from the brits, look how they fled france when hitler showed up, they needed american backbone to even compeplate landing into europe.

Wikipedia also states "citation needed" with regard to that point, which often means that the 'fact' in question has been made up.

No it dosn't, its a possibiity that is all.

Life / Expats, are you happy with your life in Poland? [43]

But yea, she was the primary reason for moving from Prague.

In terms of slavic countries i found a big difference in culture and people between prague and warsaw, but interested to hear your views.

News / Poland A and Ukraine B. Compare how far Poland has advanced. [282]

the Russians waited two weeks actually - remember 17th of September

Yes you are correct. Coincidently that was the time agreed between the polish and the french/british. The poles would hold the germans at bay for 2 weeks and then the french/poms were sopoused to throw everything at them. Despite the overwhelming strength of the germans the polish managed to bog them down for 3 weeks even when attacked on both fronts. We killed more german soldiers and destroyed more german equipment in 1939 than the french/brittish would in 1940. the germans lost over 50 thousand men and more than 900 tanks/armoured cars in attacking poland.

A far cry from the bs from harry of poles running away

You think that Poland is important enough for its history to be taught at schools anywhere other than Poland? Good joke!

First constitution in europe, saved europe from the muslims in vienna just for starters, made possible the cracking of the enigma cypher for starters. Oh and the only place you can get away with the running away from germans crap is on the interet. I doubt you would have the guts to make that statement in polish company if you ever emerge from your expat bubble.

Well, resolved at least until Poland decided to join the Nazi invasion of Czechoslovakia.

yes that is one way of looking at it. Another would be that they were reinforced their defences before the inevitable invasion. But of course the poles did not expect the french and brits to betray them. The russians waited 8 days before they invaded poland , if britian and france had actually lived up to their treaty agreements russia would not have invaded poland.

News / Poland A and Ukraine B. Compare how far Poland has advanced. [282]

The upheavel of people to the new post war reality has already happened. Each nation, poland, czech and ukraine has comfortable majority of people who identify with that country within its borders. These countries, 70 years ago bitter enemies, are now strong allies and are experiencing a common journey into european integration as slavic brothers and sisters. What happaned in the past has become as irrelevant as a scot talking about reclaiming vengeance from england. Just some of the nationalists on this board have not relised it because yes the scars of war are still fresh on families and the cultural psyche. Within a decade such talk of regaining lwow as our land will be relegated to the dustbin of history. Of course minority rights must be respected and the process of reconciliation for ww1/ww2 sins followed through.

i think a lot of american poles don't relize how dynamic the situation is in europe, how the eu has changed everything and how former enemies are now good friends for the sake of economic benefit and rediscovered shared culture. Ukraine depends on poland for access to the eu.

Torq is a realist patriot and you ironsir are an nationalist extremist. sokrates is beyond that, closeminded lunatic.

modernise their country (I don't mean economy and infrastructure, but the legal system, government etc.),

koala Yes and if poland as its western neighbour assists then ukraine becomes both a partner and partialy enters polish sphere of influence. There is already high levels of co-operation.

Study / AFRICAN STUDENTS INVASION in Krakow [197]

4-5 of these guys coming to your favourite club and then some of them getting a hot white girl instead of you,

As you stated before, you wouldn't have got the hot white girl anyway, so it makes no difference if these african guys had come into the club. If they had not come into the club the hot white girl would have gone home with a white or asian guy who is more attractive, confident and more personable than you. You lose and remain lonely no matter if there is african in poland.

Looks like i have solved your racist problem.

with a Chinese guy and see his "luck" with Polish girls

You obv haven't met some of the 'triads' and visiting vietnamese mafia in the upper class clubs in warsaw.

Study / AFRICAN STUDENTS INVASION in Krakow [197]

some of the 'poles' posting with their racist attitutudes are only slightly less pathetic. many poles who otherwise are non prejudiced their achilies heel is racism towards blacks, tho mostly it goes as far as a drunken occaisonal joke. however as the amount of africans increase in poland this will decrease as it is based in ignorance.

yes in fact poland and ukraine are increasing co-operation and warmthness of ties due to increasing issues we have in common. The same is happening with the other slavic country we had troubles before ww2. czech republic.

I am so bored with people caught up in historical details without examining what is happening in the present.
