For Nobel Peace Prize laureate Lech Walesa, the greatest wonder is how Poland saw the departure of the Red Army under his presidency, after decades of domination. He rejoices at Poland's hard-won democracy, but wishes he had achieved more: a more effective state, equal opportunity and welfare for all, greater success in bringing communists to account. "When I see how much we have spoiled, how careless we were, how much injustice we have caused, then I am displeased," said Walesa. (Associated Press)
