Bush & Yalta - A Cynical Perspective
So Bush called FDR on being a Commie-appeasing coward. (Thanks RWN) John Hawkins points out that there's nothing particularly controversial about stating the truth, or shouldn't be except for the FDR-barning liberals, not to mention the Stalin fans that are still lingering, unable to give up on history's greatest monster.
Stalin fans like this guy!
“First and foremost it is worth acknowledging that the demise of the Soviet Union was the greatest geopolitical catastrophe of the century,” Putin said. “As for the Russian people, it became a genuine tragedy. Tens of millions of our fellow citizens and countrymen found themselves beyond the fringes of Russian territory.Fellow citizens?!? That's right, Eastern Europe, you've apparently been Russians this whole time. I guess it's only natural for you to feel kinship with the people who invaded you in the 1940's, raped your women, murdered thousands of you, and declared themselves to be your masters.
Yeah. It's also real shame the Third Reich fell, because now Austria has to be free. Poor guys.
So, when Bush talks about how horrible Yalta was, then plays nice with Putin, I get a little cynical. Bitter. Pissed-off. How about we stop helping Commies?
