So, Serbia have good relations with Russia and moving closer and closer to countries that are members of Visegrad Group, which is in fact embryo of Intermarium.
Crow get into your head that Russia as is now and in the foreseeable future will not support any kind of concept that would or could constitute a base for creating Intermarium. They would readily abort such an embryo than not. The only concept Russia would embrace would be a shell of Intermanrum but in fact Russian dominium, as it used to be for Soviet Union.
You seemingly are unable to grasp what that Intermarium concept is all about but rest easy that Russians are not that slow.back on topic please
I was joking Iron, well half anyway ;)
I know Chemikiem but there seems to be myth spread amongst folk on PF that I'm somehow aggressive and nasty towards posters here. So I used this opportunity to explain to some of them why they ended feeling my boot kicking their backside. Also I cannot abide fools, it simple stupid people full of themselves get my goat.
I suppose that that nerdy part of my brain kicked in with this need to explain things. :)
Apparently, it wasn't his first trip to Poland, so presumably he hadn't had a problem before and therefore didn't expect any trouble this time.
Let focus in what is important here Chemikiem. That Shih case is not so clearly cut and dry and as this case has been presented by the press.
First of all
The police officers did tell me
police officers in Poland are not required as far as I know to communicate in English, so I don't know in what language they have communicated with the guy.
If that policeman was able to speak some English or someone from bystanders impromptu translated to him they couldn't have a good reliable standard of English. I'm certain what he says they have said to him is not a good and reliable representation of what actually was said to him.
So, once more much has been lost in the translation.
"The police officers did tell me that white and brown people in Poland are different,"
Let me 'translate' it for you - people in Poland are not used to people of different races and to interact with them.
They also told me that I should have thought about the attacks committed in Paris before I chose to come to Poland.
-Especially after those attacks in Paris, that created anti-Muslim feelings (hey you got turban on - are you for real?)-
People are angry, they said - aggression towards you is to be expected."
- Shyt happens.-
(Come on you are a big boy, nothing actually happened to you, live and learn.)
As I said not very professional but what he was exactly complaining about? That he was denied entry? That is a private establishment and they have the right to deny an entrée to anyone they choose.
Assault? I'm sure that bouncer could have produced witnesses to state that that Shih was tying to forcibly enter that joint.
In fact there were little they could have done and they just saved themselves lots of paperwork.
Thing is legally there was little that could have done to that bouncer unless Shih wanted to spend his time and money to peruse legal means and sue him.
All that ruckus is due to the fact that Britain is used to treat any assault on a colored and minority people like an assault on a stability of a state itself. On the one hand there is a numbers ethical and racial minorities in the uk on the other people have been killed only due to their skin color.
Poland doesn't have those problems. He was in Poland before and nothing had happened even though he is walking about with his characteristic turban, hell even in the USA one or other Shih found himself on a receiving end of anti-Muslim tirade.
Nobody has been killed due to skin color in Poland. Poland is a relatively save country, safer than UK and I say it again, he wasn't assaulted per se, he just walked into a situation he totally misread. Happens.
I guess I disagree with the way that case has been told because its misinterpreting the truth.
Correct me if I'm wrong but surely the role of the police is to protect and serve the public? I know, this is Poland and not the UK, but I thought similar principles would apply.
Let me put it this way - regardless of what is right and what is wrong------------------------------------ and the ways things are working( or not) in practice we are not here to debate shortages or lack of the police or other institutions-------------- in Poland.
We are here (at least I know I'm ) for a very simple reason - I disagree with the way that case had been presented.
You know the score, and yes, the only thing he was guilty of was not knowing how things are in Poland, but being a foreigner how could he?
Chemikiem some things are universal, you might not get it as a woman but for a man signs should be clear enough to see, unless he was intoxicated, or country that his status (protected minority) in the uk would apply in Poland. Maybe he is just a gullible dude who lost his way in a foreign country, we won't know for sure.
In an ideal world maybe.
I'm certain that is the only way plus gun ownership and a capital punishment, plus flogging for unruly boys and gender segregation in schools. No state health service or benefits. Well, I'm getting ahead of myself. Lets go back to the topic at hand.
Again I am looking at this from the perspective of someone born in the UK, and yes it is different because the UK is very multicultural in comparison to Poland, and there is far more racially motivated crime in my country
Indeed and I'm saying that there is no need for such laws in Poland in the foreseeable future. What would be the point? Different problems equal different solutions.
the Human Rights Ombudsman for Poland points out,
That dude is a useless douchebag, he has said that unfortunately those patriotic organizations are abiding the law and there is nothing that can be done to disband them. Whose Human Rights he is ombudsman for? Are patriots not human in his eyes, those kind of cretins get my goat!
So all this alleged data he is presenting I wouldn't trust further than I could spit.
If beatings like this are occurring more often than beatings for wearing the wrong hat
I highly doubt that is the case. However working courts, the police that is doing its job properly instead of focusing on opposition that would be a real improvement for law and order in Poland.
Hence the change is needed and PiS promised such a change and voters vote to power, let see what they are gonna do.
Properly working legal system and the police should be enough improvement for now.
Remember that those opposed to them are those who will say anything to get support but who will do very little if anything and who are mainly shady looses. So fi they seems to talk you talk they'll not deliver.
Crimes like this need to be nipped in the bud before they become commonplace.
Indeed premeditated attacks be it on a private property be it on people should be met with a rapid and severe response, either by the armed about-to-be-victim or/and by the state.
All the best.
