The Czech republic seems to be doing just fine and developing as a country
Czechs didn't lose 35% of their population in the war, didn't have their capital
razed to the ground and didn't lose such a big part of national industrial potential
and wealth during the war. The cowardice shown by them in WW2 should give
them about 15-20 years edge over Poland, but they aren't that far ahead of us.
Usually the English, the Jews or the Germans.
Germans - well, duh! (they weren't Martians who invaded us, slaughtered a couple
of million people, including elites and intelligentsia, stopped the development of the
country which in 1939 had a GDP equal to that of Spain and because of the war that
they started put us under Soviet occupation for 45 years).
Jews? Not really. There is a minority of half-wits who would blame everything on the Jews
but, as in any other country, they are only a sad minority.
English??? Yer havin a laugh :-)))) (well - I blame Lineker for Poland not qualifying to
the Euro '92 in Sweden but that's pretty much it)
