Forget Pilsudski, at least he wasn`t bolshevik even if socialist... for sure Slavic were soldiers-Poles and forgive me if i`m gratefull for some things that Pilsudski made... and for some definetly not.
I agree, i hate the red scum but lets not forget that Pilsudski wanted to aid the Japanese during the Russo-Japanese War, quite unnecessary, since its was quite clear that Poland's independence depended just as much on the germans as it did on the russians.
Yes, that was big problem. Pilsudski decided to work with Austrians, where Galicia had autonomy. He was socialist, but patriot, nationalists under leadership of Dmowski wanted to cooperate with Russia, but with WHITE Russia, they hated German "kultur kampf". After end of IWW Pilsudski just resignef from cooperation with Germans and Dmowski in Paris forced borders, Paderewski made Wilson to force Polish exsistence and becouse of his visit in Poznan started Grater Poland uprise against Germans.
BUT, i think that i could be gratefull reds for two thing: that they moved borders and resettle Germans and Poles (which is more fair and don`t make us to fight with Ukrainians, i prefer to have there friends, not enemies). Second thing is Polish Flag in Berlin in 1945.
gen. Casimir Sosnkowski with officers from ORP "B³yskawica" ("Lightning"), which today is battleship-museum in Gdynia (Gotenhafen)... I have served there for short time, when i was preparing myself to some olympiad...
Polish Navy is proud that has, as only formation, halted his nomenclature in times of PRL (1945-1989)... Name ORP (Okrêt Rzeczypospolitej Polskiej - Battleship Republic of Poland) has never changed since 28 XI 1918, when Josef Pi³sudski established Polish Navy ...

"In 1925 the Council of the League of Nations allowed Poland to keep 88 soldiers on Westerplatte. By September 1939 the crew of Westerplatte had increased to 182 soldiers. They were armed with one 75 mm field gun, two 37 mm Bofors antitank guns, four mortars and a number of medium machine guns. There were no real fortifications, only several concrete blockhouses hidden in the island's forest.
The Polish garrison was separated from Freie Stadt Danzig (Gdańsk) city by the harbour channel, with only a small pier connecting them to the mainland. In case of war, the defenders were supposed to withstand a sustained attack for 12 hours.
The Polish garrison's commanding officer was Major Henryk Sucharski, the executive officer was Captain Franciszek Dąbrowski.
It is famous as the place of Battle of Westerplatte, the first major battle of the Invasion of Poland in 1939.

On September 1, 1939, at 0445 local time, as Germany began its invasion of Poland, Schleswig-Holstein started to shell the Polish garrison. This was followed by a repelled attack by German naval infantry. Another two assaults that day were repelled as well. Over the coming days, the Germans repeatedly bombarded Westerplatte with naval and heavy field artillery along with dive-bombing raids by Junkers Ju 87 Stukas. Repeated attacks were repelled by the Poles for seven days. On September 7th major Henryk Sucharski decided to surrender.

TsarSamuil: Medicines aren't allowed to be sold on the market without a 15 year trial period, to determine short n long term effects. Sputnik just turned 1 year, others not even that, just months, how can we determine long term effects without the data from long term

TsarSamuil: exposure? Does anyone have a time machine to go 14 years or so into the future n come back n say whether we have good vaccines? Fear makes world abandon its own standards..Besides, vaccines for other illnesses that have been developed for YEARS actually
Aug 24, 2021 11:23:40 GMT -5
TsarSamuil: help. These covid vaccines are literally SHIT, why else do they demand you take 1, 2 n now 3 shots? The problem is also a disease becomes resilient if u administer a weak vaccine that doesn't do the job proper. Allow illness to survive just makes it strong
Aug 24, 2021 11:25:04 GMT -5
TsarSamuil: instead if we go by the book, we should all wait for a really good vaccine to take out the illness for good. Now...we may never get rid of it..but understandably the world economy has a hard time dealing with lock downs, but that is just needless panic
Aug 24, 2021 11:27:06 GMT -5
TsarSamuil: why Swe had fared well with country not being locked down? Because they are cold people, keeping distance was the thing before covid-19 was ever heard of, I hope world doesn't become like that, but some could use a little common sense n change in behavior.

TsarSamuil: It's no wonder covid hits so many Arabs in the country, stupid bastards..
Aug 24, 2021 11:29:38 GMT -5
TsarSamuil: If I go to H&M a new shirt, if an Arab wants to buy a pair of pants, not only is his whole family along, his friends, even his freaking grandmother is along n all chattering along in a big dumb group of ignorance..

Boro: Thx for the response. I'm not sure... It seems the vaccines work, at least people aren't dying of Covid. Those who get ill have a problem, it's not "just a flu". Maybe it's from a chinese laboratory, who knows...
Aug 24, 2021 13:46:55 GMT -5
Boro: I agree regarding Arabs..

Boro: Be glad, Sweden isn't overpopulated.
Aug 24, 2021 14:11:49 GMT -5
TsarSamuil: true, vaccines do help somewhat, maybe better than nothing..I hope in 2022 we can come out of this nightmare..

Boro: Horrible times, indeed.
