  •  indeed; I'm glad to see that, unlike DHinMI, (none)
    you didn't put "consider" in scare-quotes.  I think the John Laughland article is important because of the near uniformity with which Americans, including those posting here, accept the U.S. spin.
    •  Even Though It's From a Stalinist? (none)
      Look downthread, and see--if you didn't already know--that this Laughland idiot is an apologist for the Stalinist dictator of Belarus.  

      Maybe if he were still alive Erich Honekker might have had something "important" to say from the perspective of the DDR.  

      •  I'm responding to a comment from an ad hominemist (none)
        but sometimes you have the facts right nonetheless.  Can you say "poison the well"?
      •  Lukashenko isn't a Stalinist (none)
        He's a run-of-the-mill post-Soviet thug, intent on raping every penny he can out of his country.

        If you want to see a real Stalinist, look at Turkmenistan.
