Political expediency.


Recommended Posts

In 1939 Stalin signed a peace pact with Hitler, then proceeded to take a slice of E/Poland when the Germans invaded. :shock: The Soviets rounded up most of the educated middle class, and deported them to Siberia; they also executed around 20,000 Army Officers. :shock: Churchill seems to have known all this, but turned a blind eye, because the Russians were tying down 75% of the German Army. :roll: Seems Polish General Sikorsky wasn't playing the expediency game, and was killed in a fatal plane crash near Gibraltar. :shock: So nothing new in the history of politics it seems - as Machiavelli noted. :wink:
