I am watching Oliver Stone's "Untold History" and, wow, I have to say ... [View all]

(I sincerely hope this is not a TOS violation, I'm not advocating a political system, just making a historical observation)

...I was totally unaware of this but the Russians during the 1930s 40s and 50s were possibly the most hard-core bad-asses that ever walked the face of the earth. If there ever was a group of people who were hell-bent on ensuring the survival of their nation, by any means necessary, it was them. AND for better and/or for worse, if there is one single person in the 20th century who impacted the shape of the world in the most successful, profound and long-lasting way, it is Joseph Stalin.

It is no wonder the US was scared shitless of them.
