German-Polish move to bury past
German-Polish move to bury past

The leaders of Germany and Poland have pledged to improve relations between the two countries.

In Berlin they discussed two issues souring ties - a gas pipeline that bypasses Poland, and WWII-era claims against the country made by Germans.

Polish PM Jaroslaw Kaczynski reiterated his opposition to the pipeline, but won assurances that Germany would not let Poland be stranded without gas.

He described meeting German Chancellor Angela Merkel as "a good experience".

1. Dusting their hands off
both leaders happily declared that the past was buried.

Then when asked what now replaces the past, the leaders
pondered, realizing the momentary foundation of their
knowledge, and, decided, that a marxist state should exist.

to the region. Poles dislike Germans and vice versa. Been that way for centuries.

4. oh dear -- this just reeks of some sick & twisted parody...
"German-Polish move to bury past" (in mass graves)
"Germany would not let Poland be stranded without gas" (especially Zyklon-B)

and so on.

I will stop now.
