Interesting that Chamberlain was happy to accept the Polish and Romanian view that allowing Soviet troops through their countries ran the high risk of them staying.
Let's not forget, the Poles and Russians had fought a war in 1920 during which Stalin had been a Soviet Army commander, it ended in a Polish victory in which they captured significant territories off the Soviets and humiliated Stalin. The idea that he would somehow forget this and not seek redress for this defeat in exchange for any 'help' is wishful thinking at its finest.
