It's a rather direct question, but I'm interested to hear how you feel. Pozdrawiam.
I've watched c.a. 300 documentaries about WWII made by different nations.
I've read many books and i discussed with my grandfather and other persons much about this too.
Different points of view made me rather cautious about saying decisive answer.
You know - man that did not see war is not able to fully understand it at all.
Someone told that Churchill destroyed empire of Great Britain. Did he? Or maybe it was result of unevitable evolution of tech era? I am not sure, if
that very intelligent, very interesting man would be able to destroy whole power of GB, sorry.
Whole order of old era was waning since US crisis, imho, US gained MUCH on WWII, that's the point.
Someone told, that "if US was in Poland before USSR was, things would be different",
Nope, it wouldn't because US had NO PLAN to be there before russians, it was calculated and i already told about it - it was smart - russians got
weapons, money and resources for simple reason - THEY had to be there first - Roosevelt, i am sure, was certain about what is going to happen in
Pacific, and he must have known, that nobody help him there - it was definitely USA problem.
My grandfather said to me one day - "when russians came to our village, i was talking to them - they told us that they NEVER had so mercilles fights
like here, on polish soil - fights with germans".
They lost gigantic amount of soldiers there.
Roosevelt waits as russians will fight out east from germans, he know that main goal now is Pacific - here's small issue - he do NOT KNOW at this
time, if atomic power will be ready;
Stalin does not care about how many he will lose, he's doing his job, KNOWING that he will force his plans after end;
Churchill is fully aware that GB glorious days are gone, so he just tries to finish this asap, country is really bleed out.
Eastern countries problem is rough - some countries are sold immediately(Romania..), for some reason US and GB tried to save Poland, that's not
exactly understandable for me, to be honest, why.
They cannot force Stalin to do what they would like him to do.
Now, imagine another 3,5,10,20 years of war, just when it is clear, that atomic power WILL be in russian reach soon.
Roosevelt is tired, sick and he's not exactly interested in Europe anymore. Next president of US was from another league, imho...
There's one ugly aspect of post war history i cannot understand at all though;
Germans are responsible for war. They lost.
And what's happening then?
After few years of hard times they are starting to be powerful force again.
They have rebuilt their cities, and in next years they seem to just forget about whole thing.
Now, with France, they are ruling EU, and for some reason it's like peaceful extension of WWII, like they realized, that general goals may be achieved
with economic and beaurocratic methods and nobody is able to do ANYTHING, like access paper was more, than just paper....
And this is happening again, differently, but weirdly similar(of course, only goal is to rule and earn now).
One more thing - this is very ennerving for me, i must say.
I am watching world's News channels frequently.
There's something i just cannot resist.
CNN always tells in their news related to Oswiecim, and other concentration camps about POLISH concentration camps. I hope you understand it right:
camps are POLISH for them, and every time it is said like this.
I feel ashamed for my gvmt, that they seem to not know how US sees this issue(especially when we link this to ADL etc etc...).
Sorry for grammar, it gets worse, when i am emotional..and tired.
Btw, i am comuter technician, unemployed, actually, with 8 years of prectise(and fanatic of computer science since 6y.o., when my father bought
computer for c.a. 1 year salary).
For example, every business here must pay 800PLN(,,,)
Alez nie tlumacz mi tego, jestem Polakiem, w koncu..
