Subject: A myth collapses-Waterloo for a historian

Tomas B.'s credibility and reliability as a serious historian has now received a devastating blow. By maintaining und fueling the myth of the Klaipeda revolt in this forum and in newspaper articles like this one OMNI laikas, 15 01 2006 he has manipulated the minds of honest Lithuanian citizens.
Even when he was given the chance of correcting old mistakes in the light of new findings, he stubbornly insisted on his fabricated lies.

Question to Tomas B. by a concerned citizen:

"Tomas, don't go away from the essence. Historian that claims about Klaipėda rebellion in 1923 is a liar. There was no rebellion. The honest person that claims such things without using different standards, also should admit then Lithuania voluntary adjoined to USSR in 1940... I remember your article and I have question do you still think there was a rebellion?
Do You still confirm your words in this article?"

Tomas B.'s answer:

"Absolutely. Why are you not questioning, for example, events of 1409 in Samogitia as an uprising? In fact you'll need to make revision of the whole history, if you are going to deny the status of uprisings inspired and supported from outside the area in revolt."

Answer of the concerned citizen:

"From the context of answer I understood that "Absolutely" means you still think in Memel territory was uprising in 1923. Your comparison with Samogitain uprising in 1409 is fake. Very simple questions: since when as civilians redresed militants from outside becomes rebelions? Who was majority in 1409 local Samogitains or army from outside?

P.S. Tomas, You are not professional historian - in recently published journal Veidas You said something like this: "Professional historian shouldn't separate facts that are dislikeable and not dislikeable, the person whom performs such actions is diletant". Reading discussion it's cleary visible that You don't like the fact there was no uprising in 1923..."

In this article by Vareikis of Klaipeda University new facts are presented:

-President Galvanauskas in secret talks was given the go-ahead by the German and the Russian Governments, who never revealed the deal.
-who pretends that there was a revolt is a liar
-the major player among the military was the intelligence officer Budrys/Polovinskas, Galvanauskas' man
-the number of 300 Prussian-Lithuanians involved in the "liberation" turns out a fake, in reality it's only the highest number of those Prussian-Lithuanians that enlisted in the new army when the fight was over: 19.1.1923 – 160, 22.1. 1923 – 227, 24.1.1923 – 317, Vareikis suggests that they joined for material reasons and not out of patriotism.
-It is revealed that the 243 volunteers known that joined the fight were all Major Lithuanians

This is the Waterloo for Tomas B. and the like and, once again, confirms the scholarly honesty of the historians of Klaipeda University.
