On this Day - 1939 - the British and French prime ministers and chiefs of staff met in the “Supreme War Council” at Abbéville in northern France. They discussed the progress of the ongoing German campaign in Poland and assistance for their ally. #Poland1939 #OTD
French prime minister Edouard #Daladier said that the German advance was proceeding “as expected”, and stressed that he had “no intention” of throwing French forces against the German western front.

This was said in spite of a previous commitment to do just that.
British prime minister Neville #Chamberlain described the French decision as “wise”, and stated that “nothing the Allies could do would save Poland”. Both Britain and France committed themselves instead to building up their own defences. #Poland1939

@Felicea Leider haben wir den "Plan" schonmal von Anfang bis Ende gesehen.
Pardon, das wird ein Thread.
Juli 1936: Personal der neu gegründeten Wehrmacht sammelt in der "Legion Condor" Erfahrung bis März 1939.
Heute: #GruppeWagner & "Kleine Grüne Männchen" mit gleicher Zielsetzung.
@Felicea Mai 1938. Die #Sudetenkrise wird eskaliert. Sudetendeutsche fordern den AnschluĂź an Deutschland. GB fordert das faschistische (offiziell) Italien zur Mediation auf.
2014. PutinHuilo annektiert die #Krim.
USA fordern Rotchina ĂĽber die gesamte Zeit auf zu vermitteln.
@Felicea Frühjahr 1939. Die Wehrmacht besetzt die Tschechoslowakei. #ProtektoratBöhmenUndMähren
24. Feber 2022. PutinHuilo marschiert in die #Ukraine ein.
Rotchina hat alle Vermittlungsbitten an #PutinHuilo weitergeleitet und gibt ihm RĂĽckendeckung.

#Russia has invaded Sovereign #Ukraine.
Russia along with the big 5 gave Ukraine, #Belarus and #Kazakhstan explicit guarantee to respect their Sovereignty and territories as part of #Budapest memorandum in return for giving up their #nukes.
#Putin claimed that "promises" were made and broken regarding #NATO expansion?
Yet #Gorbachev has said many times that no such promise was given
Who should we believe?
The Ethno-nationalist?
Or the Nobel prize winner?
Russia breached this accord with its original 2014 invasion.
The actions of Russia in its pursuit of Crimea and making #Azov a russian lake have led to creating and supporting continued insurgency in eastern Ukraine.
The claim of Putin to be entering Ukraine as a #peacekeeper?
As a guardian of Russian speakers?

Why ending the #Article7 procedures against #Hungary & #Poland as part of the #BudgetDeal grand bargain is an utterly bad idea.

The #Article7 procedure is widely perceived as a completely failed, dysfunctional legal tool to enforce compliance with #EUvalues.
Therefore many see the closure of the ongoing procedures against #Hungary & #Poland as potential bargaining chips that may convince the EU's two autocratizing member states to withdraw from the blockade of the EUR 1800 bn budget deal
@EU2020DE @MKarnitschnig @meyer_resende
@ManfredWeber hinted on that option last week and rumours from @EU2020DE confirm the intention of the German Council presidency to please Warsaw and Budapest that way.…

La madrugada del 9 de mayo de 1945 llegĂł a Bletchley Park la noticia de la rendiciĂłn de Hitler.

En la Primera Guerra Mundial, mientras los compañeros malvivían, en el mejor de los casos, rodeados de cadáveres putrefactos y diezmados por las bombas y el gas mostaza, el soldado #Hitler, un artista fracasado que pintaba postales, fue destinado a un cómodo trabajo de correo.
El desenlace de la primera gran contienda en 1918 fue el caldo de cultivo perfecto para que aquel anodino personaje, introvertido y solitario, comenzara a batir sus alas hasta desencadenar el más vergonzante episodio de la historia de la Humanidad.
