    ...I'm not 100% sure what to think about this. I know how it makes me feel, but I'm no expert on European politics, so....what do y'all think?

    It looks like some people in Mother Russia are trying to re-write history again.

    The Soviet Union almost single-handedly defeated Nazi Germany? As proven by some British historian?

    They refer to the Eastern European nations just "joining" the Soviet Union after the war? And the U.S. is the evil empire?

    What the :xcensoredx: is that guy smoking??

    Heh. Okay. So I'm not the only one who thinks the guy is nuts, or trying to reheat the Cold War.

    Russians are creating their own official history. Only their view of history is rigth and everyother view of history is ILLEGAL. Yes, they have a law about correct history.

    Reading this article is worthless. For me it is the same like reading the articles written or web pages created by neonazis. They say Germany was the victim of WW2.

    Saw the article. Basically saying Russia was the victim, and the US is the evil empire. Seems this guy has an agenda.

    I have the statistics somewhere. I'll go look. But The US and Britain supplied Russia with vehicles guns and what not and after the war, Russia denied this. f it.

    I remember Lend Lease, we supplied quite a bit of equipment to the Russian army.

    Every Allied nation contributed to the effort, and without the sacrifices of each, the Axis would have had a field day. To smallify or cancel out any one nation's contribution is bullsh!t and to say that they "won the war singlehanded" is not only the stupidest most ignorant thing I've ever heard, but it's showing just how far up thier arse thier head actually is...

    Good comments guys. Gotta agree with you. While Russia did do most of the fighting against Germany, to say that they are the "sole" reason on why we won is F@@ked up! Historical revisionism at it's finest! :rolleyes:
    Next, we'll have some yahoo saying that WW2 was planned by Germany and the Western Allies to weaken the USSR, and pounce on it like a wounded animal.
