    This is brilliant.

    How old did they say Ukraine was? You have to feel sorry for Poland, no wonder they have a chip on their shoulder.

    errr... No. Not in the slightest. Poland, along with Lithiania ( Laughing ) played tyrant in central europe for a few centuries until they were taken down by a coalition of those they had pissed off with their trespasses , and when they finally got their nation back after WW1 and over a century of partition, the first thing these pricks did was to invade the new-born USSR and grab territory. Poland is the violent hate-filled felon out on probation, acting like a victim and complaining bitterly that he "dindoo nuffin" while spending his days plotting the violence he's going to do on people when he manages to get "back on top like he deserves".

    "Chip on the shoulder" that would be the English hooligans.



    1) There was no "Poland-Lithuania" until 1569. Even then it was more like Belarus-Lithuania-Poland, as the "Lithuania" back then was a joint Belarussian-Lithuanian state.

    2) Why does this video start only during 1100's?

    3) I know for certain some of the borders shown on the map you posted above, are wrong.




    Union of Lublin (1569).
