Latest Joseph Stalin Items
I found your Sept. 16 article about Krakow very informative and interesting ("Krakow a historic Polish city with a college-town vibe," Weekend Life). It's great to read about Krakow and Poland in your paper. However, I noticed the author referred to Poland as "the formerly communist country." Poland was never a communist country.
Without any trace of irony, the White House's new 10-year deficit-reduction plan is titled "Living Within Our Means and Investing in the Future." It achieves neither of these objectives, but you would never know that by looking at the deceptively rosy future it promises.
North Korean leader Kim Jong-il left Russia aboard his armored train late Thursday, crossing into Manchuria in China's northeast a day after pushing for a return to discussions on his country's nuclear program.
Giant statues of Soviet dictators Vladimir Lenin and Josef Stalin. Paintings of enthusiastic socialist laborers. A huge red star that graced Communist Party headquarters.
Nothing so focuses the mind on the nature of evil like mass murder. The numbers magnify a singular horror and become collectively unfathomable. Josef Stalin, who knew something about mass murder, showed his cold-blooded ruthlessness when he called one death a tragedy, many deaths a statistic.
Standing by a statue dedicated to freedom, Aldona Wos remembered a childhood under communism and the inspiration of her heroic father, who saved Jews and survived a Nazi concentration camp.
You might have seen the vicious Mediscare video by now entitled "America the Beautiful." If you haven't, you should. It's from folks who just the other day were chanting the mantra of "civility." It's a taste of what the left will be serving up as 2012 approaches.
The world famous Roswell "incident" was no UFO but rather a Russian spacecraft with "grotesque, child-size aviators" developed in human experiments by Nazi doctor and war criminal Josef Mengele, according to a theory floated by investigative journalist Annie Jacobsen.
Pakistan arguably remains the most complex ally the United States has ever had in wartime - far more humane than Josef Stalin in World War II but, alas, even more inscrutable. Nine years into the campaign, we still cannot clearly answer the question of whether Pakistan is with us or against us. The killing of Osama bin Laden brings the situation into even starker relief: Despite routinely requesting overflight rights from allies and other countries around the world when conducting military operations, the United States did not do so in this case out of serious concern that Pakistan might not be able to keep the secret and bin Laden might get away.
