  •  Seems obvious. (13+ / 0-)

    Yet right here in this comment section there are some who unashamedly are belittling or criticizing this diary. It's incredible to me. These remind me of the internet trolls you see on sites like USA Today.

    •  Oh it was even simpler than that (0+ / 0-)

      The Germans were invading Russia, and the Russians were defending Russia. Ideology didn't have much to do with that.

      If it's
      Not your body,
      Then it's
      Not your choice
      And it's
      None of your damn business!

      •  Of course, the Soviets had cut a deal with Hitler (0+ / 0-)

        invaded Poland, the Baltic states and Finland and then were caught by surprise when Hitler did invade, given that from Day 1 Hitler believed that communism was his chief enemy and was planning on going after the USSR.  So no, I guess ideology didn't really play a role (sigh).

        They thought that being a teammate of the Germans, they could just carve up Poland and kill whoever they wanted - particularly the Polish officers. How many was it - 10,000 in the forest alone?

        And the purge before the war - totalitarian government through and through.

        And now we're headed that way?

        The paranoia here reeks of McCarthyism.

        Yet us normal thinking people are all just going about our lives enjoying the upcoming summer months.

        The internets love a good story line. Can't survive without one. Particularly taking things to the extreme.

        Raping women and children was their sop.
