I was interested in the exchange with Euros...
I don't understand you?
Yea, they become a footnote. Ask someone about the Thirty Years' War and see what kind of response you get.
The First Reich: The Holy Roman Empire (800/962 - 1806)
The Second Reich: The German Empire (1871 - 1918)
The Third Reich: Nazi Germany (1933 - 1945)
This type of thing makes me think that Neo-Nazis want a forth Reich.
Again I wish to remind everyone this is purely speculative and just my opinion.
I doubt if it was a Polish commissioned thieft, if it was planned but no doubt there will be a lot of Polish hate propaganda in the up and coming weeks.
The sooner the thieves are caught the better as this is one of those frustrating 'Political' mud throwing sensationalist pieces of news.
By now it's prolly been smuggled out of Poland and is who knows where? Could even be on another continent. All they had to do was put it in a box and ship it.
I would imagine so as the hunt continues and the population of Poland wants it returned.
But if it were just some stupid people, well then they should be caught soon enough or they'll leave it somewhere for the police to take it back, I would not like to be them right now.
They catch a lot of fine art thieves at the sale end of things, perhaps these guys will make their mistake there, if they do not already have a buyer. Again all this is pure speculation.
