“GIVEN THE ATROCITIES PERPETRATED BY COMMUNIST REGIMES, SHOULD WE CLASSIFY THOSE WHO STILL SEEK TO IMPLEMENT IT AS MENTALLY ILL?”

Sure enough, in view of the atrocities perpetrated by communist regimes, why do we continuously and consistently ignore the atrocities perpetrated by capitalist regimes?

In my arrogant opinion, perpetration of the atrocities kicks-off, let’s say, with the bestial decapitation of King of England, Charles I, continues with the conspiratory execution of King of France Louis XVI and Queen Marie Antoinette on the guillotine and makes a full circle with more than mysterious, terrible, and wanton murder of Tsar of Russia, Nicholas II, and his family.

Without question, all those crimes were commissioned for the purposes of Democracy, and from my indoctrination lectures I did not forget, have not forgotten, and still remember that there are two types of democracies, 1) Capitalist Democracy; and 2) Communist Democracy. From those lectures, one could also deduce that Communist Democracy was more democratic than Capitalist Democracy. The most democratic Democracy in the world it was, wasn’t it? Can’t forget Tony Blaire’s evergreen dictum, “Only mentally insane people will fail to understand the advantages of Democracy.” …

There were more than 60 thousand dogs of various breeds serving in the Red Army. The most famous dog named Julbars participated in the Victory Parade held in Moscow. When on the front line, the dogs would provide their services as messenger dogs; other dogs were trained to evacuate the wounded soldiers from the battlefield or to perform guard duties; some dogs were used as live mines against German armor.


The involvement of the Soviet Military in the Korean War was to remain classified information for decades to come. The main objective was to show that B-29s (A-bomb) stood no chance to reach their targets in the Soviet Union should a war erupt.

The Korean War saw the Soviet and US airforce pilots directly engaging each other in air combat. The Soviet 64th fighter aircraft corps was formed in China. During the war, Soviet pilots performed 63,229 combat sorties, fought in 1,790 air battles, and shot down 1,309 enemy aircraft. 262 American airmen were captured by the Soviets and handed over to the Chinese and Korean sides. During the Korean War, 54 Soviet pilots became aces, scoring five or more aerial victories. Source and details, Советские асы в Корее


Имя Сталина ненавистно на Западе потому, что вместо проекта Троцкого был реализован проект Сталина — СССР.

Чтобы совершить революцию в России Бронштейн-Троцкий отправился в путь на корабле из Нью-Йорка, у него на руках был паспорт гражданина США (любезно предоставленный ему президентом США Вудро Вильсоном) и 10 000 долларов наличными в карманах (любезно предоставленных банкирами с Уолл-стрит), тогда как Ульянов-Ленин ехал в Россию пассажирским поездом в защищенном/запечатанном вагоне, и с немецкими марками в «карманах» (любезно предоставленными ему Генеральным штабом немецкой армии). МИД Великобритании также принял участие в этом процессе, чтобы Троцкий смог продолжить свою поездку в Россию. Несмотря на продолжавшуюся Первую мировую войну, интересы Великобритании, Германии и США в отношении переворота в России вдруг оказались идентичными.


Russian painter Ilya Repin created his picture which is now interpreted as if it were a piece of material evidence presented in the courtroom of history

Ilya Repin. Ivan the Fearsome and his son Ivan; 16 November 1581. 1883–1885.
The State Tretyakov Gallery

This story is still a riddle and one of the many fakes generating the background of the image of the Russian Tsar Ivan IV. Misrepresentation begins with the translation of his name, GROZNY which does not mean Terrible in Russian, one may choose any of the translation versions from the list of synonyms, but not TERRIBLE; one may pick and choose, ‘awesome, fearsome, etc.’
On the orders of Queen Elizabeth I, more people were executed during one year of her reign [about 90,000 (?) …

Filled with admiration and awe, the entire Europe watched Russian troops marching in Paris on September 10, 1815.

“Entry of Russian troops into Paris. March 31, 1814”, by an unknown artist from the original painting by I. F. Hugel based on the drawing by W.-L. Wolff

In June 1812, Napoleon’s Grand Army, a multilingual horde manned by soldiers from virtually every nation in Europe, invaded Russia. The Russian Army chose the tactic of a fighting retreat that lasted until the end of August. The General Battle of Borodino was fought on August 26, 1812, which is Russia’s memorable day of deliverance from the invasion by the armies led by Tamerlane. Both, Kutuzov and Napoleon claimed victory.

The Russian army retreated from Moscow on the orders given by Marshal Kutuzov. Right or wrong in terms of the historical debates still continuing, Kutuzov’s controversial decision proved devastatingly effective: in three months the Grand Army disappeared into the void. …


The Great War notwithstanding, the interests of Britain, Germany, and the United States in terms of the Revolution in Russia proved identical.

To do the revolution in Russia, Trotsky traveled to Russia on a ship from New York on a US passport (courtesy of the US President Woodrow Wilson) and with $10,000 in cash in his pockets (courtesy of the Wall Street bankers) whereas Lenin traveled by passenger train in a protected /sealed wagon and with German marks in his pockets (courtesy of the General Staff of the German Army). Britain’s Foreign Office was also involved in the process so that to make sure that Trotsky was allowed to continue his trip to Russia. …


One can only picture oneself a facial expression of a Soviet HQ officer reading a Distinguished Combat Service medal recommendation for Private Hitler

In terms of fantastic stories, HISTORY can indeed be a whimsical lady. Red Army’s soldier Simon Hitler, 1922, was born in Ukraine; he joined the army and received his training as a mounted machinegun operator just in time to see action in the war which broke out. Private Simon Hitler proved himself to be a hero soldier on the battlefield fighting the Germans; furthermore, he was Jewish.

His unit was stationed on the western border of the USSR; therefore, they were the first to meet the invaders in June 1941.

Simon Hitler was wounded on the eight-day of fighting; nevertheless, he continued to hold his ground since he saw no way he could abandon his position and leave behind his machinegun. …
