United States, 1860, was a civil war that simmered 100 years.
Poland, my dear fellow, resisted Nazi occupation until the end of the war.
True enough.......but you said "insurrection" not "Huge, vast, universal insurrection".......
And the fact the Civil War simmered for 100 years does NOT change the fact it was an insurrection.....a huge, vast insurrection, that failed.
Yep, but by the time the Germans finished with the Poles as the Soviets stood and watched in 45.....the Polish insurrection was DONE!
And you failed to address the rest of the examples, including the three in 2009.....
