@athousandyoung saidYou are forgetting that Stalinist Russia was no different.
Nonsense the Soviets were at war with the Fascists
Worse, actually, Stalin slaughtered and starved his own people by the tens of millions just for chits and grins even before WW2 started.
1935....Germany vs Russia.
Would you feel safer as a German citizen under Hitler, or would you rather have been a Russian citizen under Stalin?
Let's not even start with Mao, etc.
Japanese were awful during WW2, but Mao really raised the bar when it came to cult-of-personality fascism and wholesale slaughter and starvation of his own people..
