Arthur makes me wonder
why I bother blogging. He’s Da Man! I was away from the computer Saturday & Sunday, and he’s got the goods, starting with Geo-Strategy Watch. For the past several years I’ve felt that the EU’s “counterweight” ambitions won’t ever be realized from Europe alone, and so we find France & Germany courting China while Russia courts India, but then, how about Japan? Then Arhtur goes Around the World in 53 Blogs, a marathon as of itself. Then it’s time again for Good News From Afghanistan, now in its 7th installment. But wait! Remembering the Martial Law brings insight into what it’s like to live under totalitarianism,
13 December 1981 remains a divisive date in Polish history. Jaruzelski and his supporters (and there are more of those than you would think) have always maintained that martial law was necessary to save Poland from an even greater tragedy of the Soviet invasion and likely bloodshed and civil war. Jaruzelski’s detractors say he was always Moscow’s stooge who volunteered to do the dirty job of suppressing “Solidarity” for the Soviets. Twenty three years later passions still run hot.
Arthur’s Da Man!
