He was also extremely bad for Germans because he lost, being good for a while doesn't cut it
Communism was also good for a while but since it failed miserably it wasn't really good at all
But he was good before they had to say he was bad... because when times are good like the times he provided, he was popular... it was only when all the bad things he did came back to bite them in the ass was he considered bad... perhaps the leadership of Germany in WWI who paid for Lenin to return to Russia and start the revolution was more to blame... if Russia remained Russia then in the period up till the early 1930s when Hitler got into power in Germany when Germany actually cooperated with the Soviets because they were both practically the losing sides of WWI unfairly treated by the UK and France... if Lenin wasn't leading a revolution and Russia was still Russia then when Hitler took power he could have not only continued cooperation with Russia, he could have strengthened it... the Tsar or Tsarina in power might have cooperated much more closely with Germany... the T-34 evolved from experience in Spain but experience in WWII could have led to the something similar being developed a bit later on and with a more sensible crew layout more suited to the German method of tank operation, but with better guns and armour. Germany with the resources and manpower of Russia on their side could easily have taken all of Europe with no need to worry about going in to Africa or the Middle East, and over in Japan they could have supplied Japan with oil and resources to overcome the US and UK blockade that led to their attack on Russia and then into the Pacific... the Pacific war might have come much later and mostly been about getting rid of French and British colonialism...
Communism isn't fundamentally bad, Hitler was fundamentally bad.
Not a single child or neighbor here ever did anything wrong to Iran and yet they still ended up on receiving end of Iranian and Saudi hired goons
You want the Iranian people to go through what you and yours went through because of the decisions made by their leaders 20 years ago.
What you are suggesting is preventable, what you are saying they did you you has happened and cannot be changed but you think their entire population should suffer... perhaps that is the problem... you didn't suffer enough... you suffered just enough to get angry, but not enough to think this is wrong and shouldn't be allowed to happen again for what ever reason.
So yeah, their children and neighbors, what makes their children and neighbors inherently more valuable than someone else's?
Exactly... why should anyone care about some people you will never meet... ignore the blood on the hands of the American politicians because that is the blood of people who are probably guilty of something else anyway... there are no innocent people right?
What goes around comes around, they dropped a coin so now they get to listen to the whole song
Of course... they started it so murder them all... except the people picking the songs generally are never the ones whose coin is used, and so it is the general population that have to keep listening to Aky breaky heart by Billy Ray Cyrus...
Funny how it's only Russian population that got the dragging while everyone else in USSR got the kiddie glove treatment?
Look at the other soviet republics... they are hardly leading the world in much at all except complaining that all their problems stem from Moscow... perhaps if conditions in the other republics weren't subsidised by the Russian population doing the heavy lifting they might still be a useful entity and working together for a better future for all of them.
We had something similar here, just replace Russians with Serbs
But Kosovo is a unique case... you heard Allbright...
Russia ain't communist which makes them definitely more perfect than alternative
Venezuela is communist, that's why they are ones getting welfare from Russia instead of other way around
Communism: Russia imports wheat without being able to afford it
Not-communism: Russia exports wheat and makes lots of cash
WTF is the point of discussing this if you don't even know the meanings of some very basic words... Venezuela is not communist, and Russia is trading with Venezuela just like it trades with other countries... communist or not.
Communism: China is currently in a trade war with the US because the US thinks China has some unfair advantages... wow communism must be weak if the only remaining super power thinks they are at a disadvantage in terms of economics. It also means that China has clearly out-manovered the most successful and powerful western elite in terms of economics... how did they do that with stupid politicians?
Kill those who disagree and they won't be around disagree, that's how things work
(Or just let them swim North into that horrible capitalism)
So where is all this evidence of these mass graves of people who disagree?
Or are they like all the Albanians killed in Kosovo in enormous mass graves that nobody could find either... careful... America is rubbing off on you...
In both cases commies didn't exterminate the Nazis after 45 and in the end Nazis came out on top
That's commies for ya'
Hilarious... first commies are bad because they murder there enemies and now you are saying they are bad because they didn't murder enough...
Had New Zealand ever gotten even close to socialism it would have been dirt poor toilet bowl instead of filthy rich as it is in reality
So no, you never had socialism
Do you even know what socialism is?
We have something called ACC, or accident compensation corporation... a state run organisation that compensates you if you have an accident, so you don't have to sue anyone if you get hurt. We have technically free healthcare and free education, though it used to be freer...
The Government pays out an unemployment benefit for those out of work and there are lots of socal benefits for various groups including the sick and the with child. The electrical grid, all telecommunications, the forestry industry, were all state controlled, there were only two TV channels and both were state run until about the mid 1980s.
Mentally ill people were locked away in what we called funny farms, where they were cared for but kept mostly out of sight, out of mind.
Of course a lot has changed and not for the better. Most areas have been deregulated and sold off to foreign interests who are only interested in profit so costs go up and quality gets worse because maintenance costs money... most of the time they fired off the majority of the workers and then sold it again for an enormous profit... yeah, I know exactly what socialist and democratic governments are like... to this day there are two main political parties who are so similar it really doesn't matter whether you vote or not... even if one side does something good they are often replaced at the next election and any changes are undone.
And here it is, the line we all knew was coming lol1
The good old Starbucks Socialist
spirit, do as I say not as I do
Oh get off your high horse... what you did there was basically the old "If you don't love it then leave" routine... how fascist can you get... the system is perfect and should never be changed... makes me wonder why you don't love Hitler... he didn't like descent in the ranks either... I don't even know what Starbucks is.
If there is one thing you can count on with any good communist is that they wouldn't be caught dead anywhere near actual communism (unless they know they will be on top which would allow them to continue enjoying capitalist lifestyle)
Fuck off, if I was a communist then I would say so... I don't give a shit what you or anyone else thinks about me, but seeing as how you think Venezuela is communist then hey maybe we are all communists because it doesn't mean anything any more.
After all, capitalism is much more comfy, healthy and gentle isn't it?
Well you tell me... it was your neck of the woods that enjoyed the benefit of capitalism most recently... the last time we saw war here was the Maori wars two centuries ago.
Good crack dealer never uses his own product!
Hahahahaha... never touch drugs... don't really even drink alcohol much... only crack addicts here are lesbians...
