&#1062;hat a nonsense. A second front was opened when the war was already on the territory of Germany, and the territory of the Soviet Union was completely liberated from the fascists.

Just saying, I do not disagree with you but on the other side we have Syrian Rebels fighting for freedom and you paint them with the same brush as al queda and the other extremists, so now the shoe is on the other foot and it does not feel right, that's all.

They are not fighting for freedom,only the other day those freedom fighters shot at people in Aleppo who were protesting about Rebels keeping food back from the people,they are vermin,young girls gang raped,Priests having their heads hacked off with kitchen knives,some freedom fighters.

You like that 'freedom' stuff a lot. How about some articles about 'lack of freedom' in Syria pre-civil war? Were Sunnis rounded up off the street just for being Sunni? Let's narrow down your definition of freedom, eh? Were well off Sunnis summarily stripped of their assets then sent to labor camps or worse, Bolshevik or Nazi style? Were Sunni mosques being leveled to the ground? Please cite your references (rhetorical).

So, the Alawites have dominated government since the French empowered them, So what? To change that requires evolution not revolution. We seem to shy from the first and encourage the latter in Syria, ask yourself why.

By your definition of freedom, The Watts riots in '65 should have led to a resignation of the government, instead of a 'shoot looters on sight' order, because they just wanted to be 'free'. What if Watts had been funded and armed by the Soviets or Chinese to bring down the government in the name of 'freedom', eh? How'd that have worked out?

Geneva II is a joke because we've made it a joke, allowing it to be hijacked by some very nasty extremists funded and armed by Qatar et. al. and more than a few of our own beholding to AIPAC interests who don't give a damn about peace in Syria. It'll never happen. That makes Washington no less a dictatorial regime than anything sitting in Damascus.

The aid was insignificant and was not provided during all the war, moron.USSR had won the battle of Moscow and tookk Berlin without any aid. The aid was 4 % from all what Soviet army had during the war. Soviet army destroyed 80 % of German divisions. And the best ones. I think it`s obvious, that while limeys cowardly hid in their island of idiots, Russians were fighting with German nazis.
Yea, limeys are very likely to your Pushtuns in this. All they could do was to hide and stab at the back.

Yes its an ironic twist of fate , the "sensual Western sentimentalists" are supporting the
the "complicated Eastern unsentimentalists" .
Syria was a prosperous free society with the Brotherhoof safely tucked up in jail.
Till Cameron and Hollande decided they were needed to help with the invasion of Libya.
The protesters were on the prime time news every day .
It was true western opinion determined international sovereignty.
Probably not any more.
I believe North Korea is the game changer.

Correction! Russians Commies were fighting againstg German Nazis. And a million Russians fought for the Nazis (Vlassov army and others) Just imagine a million men preferring to fight for the enemy than for the glorious Soviet Union... Unthinkable but true. Had the Nazis allowed a Russian government in exile, the entire Red Army would have joined the Nazis. And if the Nazis had not attacked the Soviet Union when they did, the Soviets would have liberated Europe, landing in Normandy...from inside.(Viktor Suvorov) As Churchill said in 1945, seeing the rise of Stalin..: "We slaughtered the wrong pig".
But yes, the Russians won the war with American aid. The Russian did the bulk of the fighting and the Americans supplied the goods and made money.

The most of the Vlasov`s men were POW in Germany and joined in Russian Liberational Army just to save their sorry hides. They didn`t actually prefer Germany over USSR, they simply had a choice to die in German death camps or to go to serve to Germans. The Vlasov`s men were not used on the eastern front, cause Germans didn`t really believe that they will not escape back to Soviets. During the rebelation in Prague, one of Russian divisions from RLA turned on Germans.

I don`t take the rubbish Suvorov wrote seriously. His books are filled with lies and falsifications.

As I said, American aid was 4 % of Soviet industrial production during the war. The aid had started to come in the end of 1941, while USSR was in war with Germany since 22 June , ceased for nearly a year in 1943 and finally ceased in the end of 1944.
While in some aspects the aid was signifact, like providing USSR with trucks, in general one should not overestimate it`s significance.
As well as that of American arstrikes on Germany. They affected mostly on civilian buildings, because military plants and troops were well protected by antiaircraft forces.
