Meet Virginia's Newest Neighbor - Stalin At D-Day Memorial

The small town of Bedford, VA has put a bust of Stalin with it's D-Day Memorial.  21 men from that small town lost their lives in Normandy, so the town square has erected a memorial to the sacrifice of these brave men who fought for freedom against the Nazi's. 

While it is true that Stalin and The Soviet Union fought on the same side during WWII, they were not at D-Day.  So why the director of the memorial felt that this was a necessary addition to the memorial is beyond comprehension.

Just wanted to get my facts straight--couldn't find a quick numbers count. But still--Stalin was a dictator and responsible for the deaths of millions. No one any American citizen should be honoring, for any reason.

Melt that thing down - this is collectivist lunacy. Stalin carved up Poland with Hitler. I keep hearing how many Russians died in WW2 - that's why we have to honor Stalin - BS.

The Russians tried to invade Finland - Finland stopped them because Stalin had just finished killing his officer corp. in their army - look up the numbers they are alarming.

Stalin was a mass murderer - second only to Mao.

What about East Germany and West Germany? That was only a few years ago - you know -" Mr. Gorbachov tear down this wall" - who grabbed that land and held onto it while all other allies involved in the Marshall plan reformed, rebuilt - then gave back?

Here's something to think about:

"After a surprise Polish maneuver inflicted heavy casualties, the Germans rallied and took 100,000 prisoners. By September 16, German artillery ringed Warsaw, and the Nazis gave the Poles an ultimatum: surrender or face bombardment. The Poles demurred, and endured heavy shelling until September 27. German troops occupied Warsaw on October 1.

On September 17, Soviet troops entered Western Poland. They stopped at Brest-Litovsk, where Germans had allowed the Bolsheviks to withdraw from World War I. Again the two nations carved up Poland."
