Soviets -- er, I mean, Russians - Know All It Takes to Rewrite History... to put up a plaque in another country's cemetery, as the Soviets-- darn it, I meant 'Russians' --did in the Czech Republic.

The plaque memorialized heroic Russians who supposedly died defending socialism in Prague in 1968.

The rest of us--especially the Czechs--remember events differently. They remember the Soviets' invasion of their homeland. They remember the  brutal suppression of 'Prague Spring', the liberalization movement personified by Czech governmental leaders Dubcek and Svoboda.

Needless to say,  once the Czechs discovered the plaque, they removed it.

The Prague Post carries the March 2014 Czech news agency story.
