Thought provoking images.

Europe owes a lot to those men who fought to free Europe.

"70 yrs of relative European peace .

Yep, it's all 'relative'..... We, the UK & other European countries have lost several of ours in this & other conflicts over the last 50/60 years....

The multinational, multi ethnic federation of Yugoslavia began to crumble with the death of the long-serving President Marshall Tito in 1980. The disintegration of the state reached a climax in 1991, when the republics of Croatia and Slovenia declared their independence. The federal government, dominated by Serbia, rejected the declaration and war broke out that year.

After European Union monitoring had failed to halt the progression of the conflict, the UN intervened, first through the implementation of multilateral sanctions, and then through the authorisation of a number of peacekeeping operations.

The Ruskies still have the Second World starting in June 1941 - much too embarrassing for Russian history books to acknowledge the carving up of Poland and the Baltic with their Nazi allies in 1939. For the best part of two years Britain stood alone against Fascism – that fact can never be revised. I reckon if Germany had turned on Russia during spring 1941 instead of persisting with their fight with the RAF they would have been in the Kremlin by September

I wonder, do the Russian history books mention the Katyn Forest Massacre?

Lol

He lost it badly in several areas.

Firstly trying to compare Russia's contribution in defeating Germany to the minor sideshow Britain assisted with- total nonsense, any historian of repute would acknowledge that easily

Secondly when it comes to selective amnesia in recalling history theres no two countries on earth like US and their bitch UK- ask those in Africa, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan Palestine, or Ireland for starters!!!
