Putin Angry that Poland Doesn’t Want Him at Ceremony Commemorating That Time Russia Invaded...

Well, if this ain’t a bite in the ass… MSN “Russia expressed anger Wednesday that President Vladimir Putin has not been invited to ceremonies marking the 80th anniversary of the outbreak of World War II in Poland later this year. The foreign ministry voiced its “bewilderment” upon learning of Warsaw’s plan to mark the anniversary of the start of WWII only with Poland’s close allies — members of the European Union and NATO and several ex-Soviet nations. Russia accused the Polish authorities of ignoring “historic logic” and seeking to turn the September commemorations into a “secret” meeting. “Despite our Homeland’s unquestionably decisive contribution to the defeat of Hitler’s Reich and the liberation of Poland from the Nazi aggressors there is no place for Russia in this plan,” the foreign ministry said in a statement.” Uh, Vlad, on Sept. 17, 1939, just seventeen days after Hitler invaded Poland from the west, the Soviet Union invaded from the east without a declaration of war, sending between a half a million to a million troops over the Polish border against a token defense — as Poland was concentrating it’s troops in the west against the Nazis. As many as 300,000 Poles were subsequently sent east to Siberia to slave in the Soviet war effort for the next six years or so. Many did not return. And while much credit is due to your country for destroying the German Army, you hardly “liberated” Poland, taking it under military and political control for the better part of five decades after you’d driven the Nazis out. How about you STFU and let the Poles commemorate this solemn anniversary with their current allies? Please follow me on Twitter @durrati
