    Russia accuses Poland of starting Second World War

    Russia accuses Poland of starting Second World War - Telegraph

    The Russian defence ministry posted a potentially inflammatory essay on its website which claimed Poland resisted Germany's ultimatums in 1939 only because it "wanted to obtain the status of a great power".

    The lengthy diatribe, which is unlikely to be welcomed in Warsaw, also lashed out at Britain and France for giving the Poles "delusions of grandeur" by promising to intercede if the Nazis invaded.

    "Anyone who has been minded to study the history of the Second World War knows it started because of Poland's refusal to meet Germany's requests," the statement read. "The German demands were very modest. You could hardly call them unfounded."
    Also from the story -- pending legislation:

    Dmitry Medvedev, the Russian president, last month created a commission to identify foreign "revisionists" who disparage the country's prestige and "falsify" its history.

    . . .

    Under planned legislation, backed by Mr Medvedev, any Russian or foreigner who claims that the Soviet Union occupied Poland or the Baltic States could face up to five years in prison.

    The Russians are a bit late aren't they? But I bet the Germans will be relieved.

    Germany's "requests." Well that's a very nice way of putting it. Why don't they say that a guy with a knife "requests" my wallet when he threatens my life?

    Well, Obama's in Europe.

    How about if he makes a quick trip to Warsaw so he can apologize for the United States encouraging the Russians to make that secret treaty with Germany that split up Poland before hostilities began?

    Germany did "request" Poland give back the land between Germany proper of the time and East Prussia....region around and south of Danzig....Thats fact.

    Had it occured it would have ended the same way Czechoslovakia ended..Diplomatic coup beyond belief for Hitler followed by Germany and the USSR dividing up the remainder of Poland.




    The Second World War started when France and the United Kingdom declared War on Germany because Germany declared war on Poland.

    I have to say that you are becoming quite humorous.

    I still chuckle at the one about "sodomizer".
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    What kind of "means" did you have in mind? Your solutions are always hilarious.
