    Should Gdańsk be returned to Germany as well?

    No, since it was a territorial compensation to Poland, which was being stripped of its own eastern lands at the same time. Koenigsberg is the very definition of an unethical spoil of war. Russian settlers should return to Russia, and Germans allowed back in.

    It would be like if George W Bush had declared Baghdad to be a US territory and replaced the local Muslims with White American settlers.

    Should the settlers living in Atlanta be sent back to Britain and native Americans allowed back in?

    Just ask for all the territories traded or split after WW1 to be returned to their old empires. Europe is already being split among empires, why not go back to the 19th century? :rolleyes:

    I'm in favor of whatever annoys the Poles the most.

    Give Kaliningrad to Tunisia; if we can demonstrably prove that Poland is adjacent to North African countries, well, does that not begin to imply...?

    Each time I post in an old thread, it gets deleted. This thread is turbo-necromanced and instead of discussing the topic, it attempts to annoy a particular nationality. I guess it's fine then.
