65 years ago today...

Sep 1 1939

Hitler reluctantly invades Poland, but only after being provoked by warmongering Poles. The previous night, a Polish commando team shot their way into a German radio station in the border town of Gleiwitz, and broadcasted a radical call to arms against the peaceloving people of Germany. Except that it was all an elaborate sham engineered by Nazi general Reinhard Heydrich, dubbed Operation Canned Goods.

...hmmmm, trumped up charges, an artificial sense of urgency and an obvious imbalance of military power--human history recycles itself with disturbing regularity.

......followed by an invasion, an occupation, and the setting up of a puppet government, which was fought by a partisan movement. Glad those days are over!

Yes, but of course all that kind of stuff has no place with this threads' line of reasoning.

The fact that Germany negotiated to split up Poland with Russia probably has no place in this thread. So I wont mention it.

Oh wait... you're saying Bush=Hitler! Oh, I get it! It was such a subtle inference that I almost missed it! Thank God I didn't.
