damn poland is based as fuck. One of the thigns I've learned lately is all the people made fun of int his country do really nothing wrong and the more you learn they're actually pretty cool. And on the other hand the people this country protects from criticism get progressively more violent and uncivilized.

It's understandable that Poland would be weary of fascists. Good for them.

The polish jokes come from the Myth that a polish Calvary Unit charged german tanks during the invasion of Poland.

Huh? This is a myth? news to me. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charge_at_Krojanty yup a myth, according to Wikipedia they had cavalry charge some infantry a ways off and first wave reports characterized them as charging tanks seven miles away. German propaganda seized the opportunity to make the poles look stupid. Apparently it worked as this myth is still around today. I honestly always just figured the poles were making due with what they had and were just super brave / reckless but they had to try at least to hold the Germans off with their outdated military.

No wonder everyone wants to conquer Poland.
