'Poland angry at Soviet war role
Polish President Lech Kaczynski has voiced his anger at the Soviet role in World War II at commemorations marking the beginning of the global conflict.
In front of Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin and other world leaders, Mr Kaczynski said the 1939 Nazi-Soviet non-aggression pact had divided Europe.
At an earlier event in the port city of Gdansk, he had described Russia's actions as a "stab in the back".'
Compare the behaviour of the United States and the Soviet Union during world war II and after.
The Soviet Union represents business as usual. It is the perfect example of imperial behaviour. First, it signed the Molotov-Ribbentrop pact, and gulped up half of Poland. It then murdered 40,000 Polish officers, gendarmes and intellectuals in the Katyn forest. And after having beaten back Operation Barbarossa, took back Poland and imposed a Communist government. Thats how empires act towards those they conquer.
The United States on the other hand expended enormous sums in Europe and the far east, hundreds of thousands of American lives were lost, and not for American interests but to prevent countries like France and Poland from being lost to history for generations. At the end of the war the Marshall plan paid for Germany and Japan to rise from the ashes and become productive, law-abiding democracies; they remain like that today. The United States gave them the gift of freedom.
When I hear anti-American prejudice it makes me extremely angry. The smallness of it, the injustice of it, the perversity of it.
