@BlargArgNarg "didn't oppress the people it had conquered" Where do you get this from? Nazi occupation of foreign lands was exceptionally brutal, especially in Poland.

@triangle.128k I kind of butchered my sentence, I meant that the Nazis were not as oppressive as the Soviets were. Hitler was kind of mentally f*cked, while Stalin stole from peasants, butchered people he didn't like, and starved an entire country. Besides, Stalin killed from about 20 to 40 million of his own people. Hitler killed from 6 to 11 million.

If it wasn't for Solviet Russia, Nazi Germany would be ruling all of Europe, and the Jews of Europe would have been exterminated. The world should be thankful for some of Stalin's choices.

I have as much respect for Stalin as I have God. Both are disgusting personalities and deserve to be physically tortured, but have pulled through when the world needed them most.

@BlargArgNarg Stalin did not kill 27 Million people the 27 million that died were soldiers who knew the risk and fought until they lost their breath. If there is one interesting about World War II it is Stalin due to his complex personality even though he was a bloody tyrant he was a tactical genius despite what many think.

@BlargArgNarg If Nazi Germany lasted longer, there would be much more people killed in contrast to Nazi Germany. Hitler eventually would have killed off almost all slavic people in Europe if nothing stopped him, and the slavic population is much bigger than the amount of people Stalin killed.

@Knaveslayer99 It was proven that Joseph Stalin had killed and starved millions more than Germany. Also, Germany had a better reason to go to war, they were poor as hell, and needed to boom their economy. Russia, while also poor, was made poorer by Joseph, who killed because he didn't like people.

@BlargArgNarg I completely disagree with you as it is actually not proven and this is due to Russia Population during WWII if you look at any Russian Population chart you'll notice that they only lose 27 million during those times there wasn't 20-40 millions and population charts or demographics you'll see that Russia declines in 27 million people which were soldiers if Stalin really did kill around 60 million then there is no way that only 3-5 years after WWII the Russian Population was able to regain it's numbers that quickly.

@Knaveslayer99 Although not everyone who was swept up in the aforementioned events died from unnatural causes, Medvedev’s 20 million non-combatant deaths estimate is likely a conservative guess. Indeed, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, the literary giant who wrote harrowingly about the Soviet gulag system, claimed the true number of Stalin’s victims might have been as high as 60 million. Most other estimates from reputed scholars and historians tend to range from between 20 and 60 million.

Meh. I would have had a chance at survival under Stalin; under Hitler, I would have definitely been killed. Stalin gets my votes between these two.

@@Knaveslayer99 I can believe 20million and I'm not defending Stalin to be completely clear he was a horrible leader however people forget that the Soviet Union did a lot of good for the world even a famous Black Activist during the 60s stated that he finds it hard to picture people of any color fighting a war against the USSR
Knaveslayer99 says2016-10-23T23:58:11.6893527Z
@BlargArgNarg Sorry I was meant to put @BlargArgNarg that instead of my own name I must have just blacked out for a second there sorry about that.
BlargArgNarg says2016-10-23T23:58:20.6282100Z
@Knaveslayer99 Ask any Ukranian farmer who lived under Joseph's rule, oh wait, you can't, they're all dead.
Knaveslayer99 says2016-10-24T00:37:00.0019239Z
@BlargArgNarg Go ahead and ask a Polish soldier about what he did when Hitler attacked oh wait... That's what they're all dead.

Hitler was responsible for the deaths of some 30+ million people. Historians estimate Stalin killed 20-60 million people. Mao Zedong killed an estimated 60 million people. Yet he's not on the list. Hitler killed 30+ million people in SIX YEARS. Stalin may have killed 20 million people and therefore less than Hitler. Who knows. Stalin wasn't a genocidal killer. Hitler on the other hand wanted nothing less than to annihilate the population of the Soviet Union, Poland, and other Slavic nations. So yeah, that amounts to some 200 million people. Hitler killed 25% of the Belorussian population in some 3 years. Is this not an astounding statistic? Fortunately, the damnable Nazis were all destroyed.
Soviet12345 says2016-10-24T22:00:15.2458029Z
Some 7 million Ukrainians (mostly by Stalin) were killed in the Soviet Union and Ukraine was part of the USSR for almost 75 years. Hitler killed almost the same amount of Ukrainians in three years (1941-1943). Yeah, this proves that Hitler and the Nazi ideology was much worse.
Soviet12345 says2016-10-24T22:06:16.6377195Z
If you want to break up the number of people Hitler killed, 6 million Poles, 23-25 million Soviet soldiers and civilians (including some 3 million Soviet POW's), 1 million Yugoslavs, half a million French citizens, and a minor amount of people from other countries. This easily amounts to over 30 million people. I wonder what percentage of the world population that was back then. Either way, its a lot of killing for one man to do in six years, would you not agree Mr. Nazi?
