Werthead Posted March 5, 2022 Share Posted March 5, 2022 1 hour ago, GrimTuesday said: Hold up, that is a bullshit comparison. There is a world of difference between a country agreeing to be neutral in exchange for land (still not great) and would eventually lose millions of soldiers to destroy Nazi Germany vs right wing ultra nationalist groups who actively and willing worked with Nazi Germany to participate not just as a local insurgency against the USSR, but also in their genocidal project. Worth noting that the USSR only wanted to destroy Nazi Germany after it invaded. Before that point, they had no problem with Nazi Germany whittling down the West and buying their shit (and them buying Russia's shit in return) and Stalin had no problem believing that Hitler's anti-Slav, Lebensraun in the East shtick as PR populism. In later years, Stalin was heard to lament the German invasion because of "the things they could have achieved together." Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
