Bluto: Over? Did you say "over"? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!

Poland was a sovereign country. It was invaded. The invaders needed to be stopped. The US is the world's police force.

I will always go back to the one on one analogy. What works on a 1:1 basis should always be the same on a global basis. There is no gray area. If I see someone start a fight I stop it, because I know I have the power to end it quickly.

And it remains beyond your comprehension that someone on the opposing side may have exactly the same notion. And yet people like you wonder how Bush has gotten this country into the mess it's in. Hint: it's not actually all about you.

Yeah, just like Iraq. Why do you hate Poland? Germany was simply liberating helpless Polish people from tyranny. Remember, freedom isn't free.
