Even in moment of celebration the inferiority complex rears its ugly head.

Freed Europe from what?

Not from Stalin

I don't think a few Baltic nations would feel that way about Russia.

Thank you for stating my point in a much more eloquent manner.

I went to law school with a Latvian fella who would agree with you, in a manner most hostile.

If your fave's coach isn't Richard Williams, that's just her first problem...

I was there when the ALL BLACKS won the World Cup in 2011!!!

I mean, they actually don't. I just read about in the paper yesterday. I think they refused to participate in the celebration.

Thank you Russia for aggression (with Hitler's Germany) on Poland. For almost 50 years of occupation. For systematic killing of Poles. Thank you very much.

I've read that Kwasniewski is pushing Putin for an apology.

Russia pleads not guilty so they think there is no reason to apoligize. Kwasniewski should not go to Russia on May 9th

I am not considering politics but those 20 000 000 human lives lost for freedom, against horror...

what followed is another story...

these thanks go to the russian people ( whose statesmen often lacked of the true russian spirit, but that too is another story...)

Strategically speaking, Russia might not have had another choice after the end of the War (and I'm not condoning what Stalin did).

True to the extent of being the opposite.. It was Latvians who are majorly responsible for bringing the horrors of communism to Russia.. It was a Latvian named Jacob ( Jan ) Peters who was one of the biggest murderers of revolution. It was, in fact, Letts and Poles who have built the organization that we know as KGB ( VChK, NKVD ). It was the divisions of Red Lettish sharp-shooters who formed the striking force of Russian communist revolution at its early stages. Live alone the fact that many Latvians fought on German side in WWII. Russians have their own scores with Latvians.. It's just that we tend to forgive what happened back in history, while those guys tend to exploit the history.

At this point .. it does not matter.. Only complete idiots .. like your "Latvian friend" .. who can hold any grudge 70 year later to people 90% of which haven't even been born back then..

"..just knowing that as long as i choose life, there is hope."
