Default Walesa unveils one more for the 'Gipper'

Walesa unveils one more for the 'Gipper' - Thenews.pl :: News from Poland

Nov. 21, 2011

Quote:
Lech Walesa said that there would not be a free Poland without Ronald Reagan, during the unveiling of a statue in Warsaw of the late American president on Monday.

The former Solidarity leader said that “as a participant in these events,” it was “inconceivable” that such changes would have come about without the last American president during the post-1945 cold-war era.

Walesa added that thirty years ago, it seemed that the fall of the communist system would not be possible without a nuclear war.

The bronze statue of Reagan has been installed not far from the American Embassy, on Ujazdowskie Avenue, one of the capital's most picturesque thoroughfares
The Poles are a people who were willing to face rifles to escape the sort of centralized serfdom our own Leftist would inflict on us.

I find that fascinating.

I noticed it awhile ago...

The former Soviet satellites were the countries that endorsed Bush's invasion of Iraq more than any other...

They didn't care about WMDs or resolutions or any of that stuff...They just knew what it was like to be denied liberty and freedom and be born again from those ashes...They wished the same for the people of Iraq...

This is why I hate the Janis Joplin line "Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose"...No, you b*tch...It's EVERYTHING to lose...
