    It’s going to take quite a while to live down Gitmo.
    That was the sort of thing that we all hated the Soviets for.
    My own Father spent a bit of time as a “guest” of Joseph Stalin. I’m glad he decided against moving to the USA when he got out in 1948.

    Ottodesu, please, accept our thanks as well for your father’s decision. Yes, Gitmo is horrible and shameful, but we’ll fix it. Meanwhile, enjoy whatever happy little home you live in. God Bless the United States. Even more so, when we’re wrong.

    This is totally off subject but an interesting story (I thought.)
    Richard Cordray, who was just confirmed as one of Obama’s nominees (for Consumer Protection something) was on Jeopardy!
    Back in 1987, when you were only allowed to win 5 times, he won 5 times.
    A yahoo story lists some of the questions he missed.
    First comment on the story: “Must have been a slow news day.”

    We are SO happy he didn’t come to the US either. No need for even more traitors and socialists.

    Speaking from the left, I would say that Solzhenitsyn was a great writer and a heroic figure, but like most people, he was complex; he exposed terrible crimes in the Soviet Union, but he also took some positions which I, at least, can’t agree with. His opposition to Soviet imperialism, for instance, made it hard for him to see American imperialism at work in Vietnam.

    HOW DARE YOU!


    My Father was a POW between 1944-48 because he fighting the Soviets. (No, he wasn’t a Nazi either.) He lost over 50% of his body mass.


    He ended up being a rampant Capitalist and vehemently anti-socialist. He hated Unions.


    He had massive bullet wounds because he fought the USA’s enemy.


    OK, I will allow that you did not understand what I was saying, but he had the greatest positive respect for the USA.


    You need to have the same for him.

    I despair that many of the readers here are illiterate and ignorant of what happened in WWII.

    Ahh, huh?

    How did my father fighting the Soviets in WWII have anything to do with Al Qaeda?

    And I grew up in a country that has always welcomed the USA as an ally.
    My Father regarded the USA as an ally and I still do.

    Thanks, ahab.

    You’re almost the only person who understood what I said.

    Thanks for that.

    Actually, when I read “One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich” it sounded exactly like what my Father endured, except that the “fictional” character had more food.

    BTW, my family are not from the Soviet Union, but one of the other countries in the former Iron Curtain.
