Re: Turning back the clock is impossible

“And shouldn't Poland get restitution for the Bolsheviks refusing Marshall Aid all those years ago?”
“Perhaps Poland can have its share of the Marshall plan now.....”

When the Marshall Plan was inaugurated Poland accepted the offer of aid. That decision was reversed on the instructions of the Soviets shortly after. Those funds were then redistributed amongst the Western European countries.

In a very real manner the Euro aid going to Poland today is the interest of the U.S. aid forgone by Poland.
