  • #17 is not true. “Occupation”, if you want to call it that way, lasted alomst 50 years, from 1945 to 1989. And occupation of all Warsaw Pact nations in aftermath of the Prague Spring lasted maybe few months tops. You need to take note of those details dear Americans, because they are very important here, in Europe.
