U.S. Promises Poles Support on Wartime Anniversary
yay Poland!
"Secretary of State Colin Powell told Poles Sunday, the 60th anniversary of the World War II Warsaw Uprising, that they would never be left alone again as they were when Nazi forces crushed the rebellion.
Powell is in Warsaw to commemorate the bloody 1944 Warsaw Uprising, along with Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder -- the first German head of government to attend its anniversary -- and British Deputy Prime Minister John Prescott.
...
New historical accounts show London and Washington applied little pressure on the Soviet Union to help the insurgents, while Soviet leaders did not allow Britain or the U.S. to use its airfields to deliver supplies to Polish troops until the upheaval was all but over. This limited the allies' help to often inaccurate airdrops of arms."
