    In 1920, the Westernmost part of the USSR wanted out, since they were neither Russian-speakers nor Russian Orthodox. Since Russia had not helped the Allies to victory, the Allies agreed to chop off the Westernmost part of the USSR to teach the Soviets a lesson they’d not soon forget.


    Stalin not only took back all that the Allies had chopped off, he also grabbed bits that had been part of the Austrian Empire and bits that had been part of the German Empire. Those bits Stalin grabbed fought against Stalin’s annexation, but lost. They supported the Axis in a futile attempt at freedom, since the leader of the Axis was seen (until 1941) as the best hope against Bolshevism (but, having fired his generals and taken over command of the Eastern Axis forces, he lost miserably, so, with 20/20 hindsight, he wasn’t such a good leader against the Bolsheviks, plus he had a few other foibles, but he’s mainly disparaged because he lost the war).


    As John Perkins writes (and as Russia Today TV and website, RTV.com show), the leadership from the Western Ukraine, strongly supported by the West, want to hand all the Ukrainian resources over to the West in exchange for baksheesh paid only to that leadership in a deal that will subject the ordinary Ukrainians to a lower standard of living, ESPECIALLY the Eastern Ukrainians whose Russian-speaking ancestors voted to remain in the USSR and who supported Stalin in WWII.


    (Of course, the Eastern Ukrainian leadership want to ally with Russia in a deal that would be great for those leaders and really bad for the Western Ukrainians.)


    There ain’t no easy way to absolve the Ukraine of Stalin’s sins.

    Stalin — what a guy. The dictator epitome to which all tyrants aspire.

    Stalin wasn’t Stalin? Hummmm. Sounds like another lame sitcom.

    The old, white-haired, hard-faced men in the Pentagon and CIA must be thrilled that they can forget about this complex new world we’re in and get back to what matters most: Winning the Cold War and “showing them Ruskies what for”.

    It was replaced by the Bush Iraq sitcom which is now in reruns.
