Re: Russia accuses Poland of starting Second World War

What are at play here are two reoccurring Russian pathologies. The first is the ancient Russian inferiority complex or more specifically the Muscovite inferiority complex. This exhibits itself in two halves: one half is to take or steal credit for anything passing for positive; center of Orthodoxy (Kiev), Commerce and Trade (Novgorod), cosmopolitan sophistication (St. Petersburg) – Muscovites claim it all. The other half is to blame all wrongs and failings on others.

The second pathology is their perennial Russian desire to be led or told what to do. When the Russians are whipped up enough regarding foreign (or internal) threats, they desire - no demand - a strong-hand leader who invariable proves his strong hand by oppressing and beating his own Russian constituency into submission and subservience.

It is time to gear-up the gulag comrades! It is time to prove how great mother Russia is!

History would not have been any different.

Re: Russia accuses Poland of starting Second World War

Didn't these nitwits also try to blame Germany for Katyn? No matter what they say or do, you must always keep one eye on the Russians. It's always been that way and always will be.
