People here think the US military is fighting for freedom.
And whose freedom do they think they are fighting for?
Do they think the people of Libya and Iraq and Syria are now safer from dictatorships than they were 20 years ago?
Do they wonder why their government puts Putin down for passing laws against talking to minors about homosexual lifestyles yet says nothing about the Saudi government that executes homosexuals for having sex?
Freedom of speech and other freedoms are about truth and justice... not spin and revenge.
Is it true that the Soviet Union wanted to take over the world with Communism? I have always been told this here but wanted the opinions of people on this forum especially Russians.
Every country wants every other country to be more like them, but the Soviet Union was never in any position to impose communism on the world.
Kruschevs famous remarks "we will bury you" were misinterpreted in the west as aggressive... ie will will kill you and then bury you, or more gruesome... we will bury you alive. What he was actually trying to say was that consumerism and western democracy would die before communism and that the Soviets would be left to make sure the body is buried.
we are going to be here after you are dead.
What is the Soviet point of view of the Vietnam and Korean Wars and how did they view the American involvement in it?
Both cases were the results of colonialism... Korea was split because half was "liberated" by the Soviets and the other half was influenced by the Japanese occupiers. the Korean war was an attempt by north koreans to unify the country.
In Vietnam it was the French that were the colonial occupiers... the vietnamese kicked the french out and then the Americans came in thinking they could do better.
For the Vietnamese it was not about democracy of communism... it was about being run by a foreign power (France or US) or being a sovereign country.\
