Yes--we sent hundreds of thousands to die and several billions of dollars to help make Europe safe for Stalin-yes we stopped Hitler from killing millions so Stalin could continue killing tens of millions. Many of those Soviet dead were racial, ethnic or 'class' enemies Stain sent into battle with minimum support so these 'lesser peoples' could finally serves some useful purpose before dying. And then we made China safe for Mao's firing squads. So how did this Liberation work out for the peoples of the Baltic, Poland, central Europe, the Balkans and so much of Asia? From Woodrow Wilson to FDR, LBJ and now Bush and Obama our would be beloved and would be leaders send other peoples sons to die on foreign shores for what?

Stalin robbed FDR and the Roosevelt administration blind, a process which didn't end until Harry Truman put a stop to it. Without American lend-lease aid - such as our Studebaker trucks - it is certain that the USSR would have fallen to Germany - a fact Stalin and then Krushchev took great pains to redact from all of the Soviet histories of the war.

Where is any evidence, aside from Bolshie propaganda, that Hitler intended to invade America? Talk about nuts. Stalin didn't need to invade America, he had FDR and his Mafia cronies already in place.

But the Japanese did bomb Pearl Harbor. Their plan was to neutralize the US Pacific fleet and keep America out of the War. The aircraft carriers were not at Pearl Harbor on Dec 7. Yamamoto gambled and he lost.
The Soviet Union was not at war with Japan so they could fight a war on one front.

Mao's firing squads were no different than Chiang Kai-sheks

ROG47, you missed one thing. Stalin did not have plan to invade America. Hitler did. So if not for Stalin's effort to defeat Hitler you may today write your comments in German.

Yes don't forget that Ivan has fought us in every conflict since then to the present day. They are still bankrolling and supplying every country that is in conflict with us today. They will be one of the forces when the Mahdi starts his conquest of the Middle East. During WW2, Ivan used trucks to resupply their forces sent to them by us while the Germans were forced to use horses. That alone was one of the great reasons that Stalingrad was finally won.
Feb. 2 marked the 70th anniversary of the end of one of World War II's most decisive and utterly destructive battles, the five-months of slaughter in the Russian city then called Stalingrad.

In 2012, this column revisited several major battles of 1942, including Midway and El Alamein. Midway destroyed Japan's strategic offensive capabilities. El Alamein began the Western Allies' long drive to Berlin. Winston Churchill saw Britain's North African victory as, "perhaps, the end of the beginning."

Subsequent allied victories on the Western and Eastern fronts proved Churchill correct, with Stalingrad the eastern end of the beginning.

However, the defeat Adolf...
