    Why bring up Japanese occupation of China and compare it the Holocaust? ... Do you think the Germans are as bothered about it than the killings of millions of Jews?

    You'd be very surprised about how many people actually liked Stalin and his Soviet fraternity - very surpised. There are plenty of documentaries out there, in particular the Panorama one, that show you the extent of it. Why the **** do you think they kept Lenin in a Mausoleum in Moscow?? Surely you're going to want to take all reminders of the past away if you don't want to be reminded of it? Sure Lenin didn't kill people like Stalin did, but he sure is Communist to the teeth.

    Go to Stalin's home town and they only just removed Stalin's statue ... and do you know why they did? Not because the people in the town didn't want it, it was because it was considered unethical by the government.

    The majority of Crimea is Russian Speaking, so, in terms of soveingty, shouldn't it be part of Russia?

    See, even these days there are similarities with some aspects of how tensions were during the cold war - notably political. Russia disagrees with the US because it is still Anti-Capitalist ... and what can it be if it isn't Capitalist? I'll let you guess that one.
    Firstly your the one who brought up the holocaust

    I know for a fact Germans still can't express Pride because they feel ashamed of what happened to their country merely 80 odd years ago - but the fact is they shouldn't, they should learn from it.
    Was merely commenting on what you said.

    Liking communism and Stalin are completely different things. With Lenin as an individual it's much more balanced to respect as a politician (seeing he was involved in a bloody civil war that was committed by both sides). Stalin by comparison was heavily opposed by Lenin and a bloodthirsty tyrant. Communism is not automatically bad or bloody, Stalin however was and is pretty much the whole reason communism has a bad name in the west.

    And most who like Stalin and communism surprisingly enough are those who benefited the most from it.... which unsurprisingly usually are the Russians.

    Obviously you have area's of Georgia that like Stalin, he came from there, but historically due to the 'Georgian Affair' most Georgian's do not like him at all nor Russia by extension.

    And historically concerning Crimea the only reason most of Crimea are ethnically Russian is because they killed or deported over 70% of the native population between the 1920's and 1950's. Most Russian's who live their now are descended from Russian who moved there in that time frame. It's akin to saying Leicester should be part of India because the majority of the population are Indian, that's really not how national integrity works.

    Well Russia is mostly capitalist, just they like how the political formation of the USSR worked.... mostly because it was in their favour. And capitalism vs communism was a very minor factor causing the USSR vs USA cold war, it was mostly concerning economic, military and influential power.

    Those 2 planes (MH370 & MH17) are Boeing 777-200ER made in US. The products of US.

    Something really fishy about these iron birds. Maybe the planes are designed to be controlled by many ways.

    They can be controlled by the US satellites? Possibly.

    Yeah, possibly. And there certainly is a posibility that we're not humans but giant shrimps. There are plenty of conspiracy theories all over the internet. Don't create any more of them please.

    But still, the 777 had 15 years of no crashes. Then we have five crashes in the past six years, two in four months.

    Where the **** did I talk about the Holocaust before you did???????

    Are you thick or something? I was talking about the Nazi regime, not the Holocaust atrocity ... This conversation is over as far as I am concerned, I refuse to talk with someone who just puts words into my mouth.

    The odds of surviving an accident of this nature is as good as zero, they're only saying that because they don't have 100% certainty yet.
    The number of confirmed British dead went up from 6 to 9 today.

      Wow aren't we off the mark, they're not anti-Capitalist, they are if anything pro-Capitalism just not all for the free market. Autocratic markets are the best, easier to deal with, know who to bribe and you know that they'll generally be stable... Don't you wonder why the US nearly always installs another dictator than starting the democratic process in countries it fights?

        Nope. Wrong again. 3 years of Russian business dealings and relations with Russians has told me otherwise. Real life trumps theory.

        P.S. I'm not wrong again, I'm not the original twit you were talking to, I just interjected with my opinion you arrogant twit.

          Considering I copied your response to myself I'm quite surprised. At the end of the day, Capitalism is good, Free market is bad in Russia. Capitalism is different to the Free market, they're not interchangeable as you'd appear to think.
