        Soviet friends? Wasn’t it Their Prime Minister that compared Stalin to the devil?

        Which means that you get 10-20 million killed and they get Europe.

        Like the propaganda of how they abandoned you in the first world war, or how they always asked you to launch an attack to relieve pressure on them but just couldn’t seem to do it when you were hurting, or how they thanked you for your sacrifices by invading your country and trying to overthrow your government.

        And don’t forget that the British ambassador recommended that Kerensky arrest to Soviets in 1917 so that you wouldn’t cause trouble.

        With friends like that you don’t need enemies.

          In the sense that "If Hitler invaded Hell I would at least give a favourable reference to the Devil". ;-)

          Anyway, my German comrades, you need have nothing to worry about! We propose your ambassador comes for a friendly evening of entertainment at my country dacha. Over a few bottles of vodka I am sure we can have a productive conversation about how to further the interests of continental Europe....

          EDIT: Invitation cancelled. ;-)

            • Okay, canceled my last message too.

              Very well, a limited war has begun.

              "Having broken a treaty in the usual, under-handed and brutal way, the Stalin regime is no longer entitled to it's benefits.
              The claims by the USSR to the territories of Eastern Poland, Bessarabia and the Baltic States are no longer valid. The Armies of the Third Reich will now revoke those claims by force, and send the hapless Red Hordes reeling back where they came from.
              Permanently."

              Everything gained by your alliance with us is now forfiet. And if you want to take it further than that, that's your damage.

                It worked for Napoleon. It'll work for you.

                • Napoleon also wanted Moscow. Wanted it pretty badly. We, on the other hand, have no interest in it. If you continue to push this issue, you will find us much more difficult than Napoleon to defeat.

                    It was our duty to engage ruthless and unwanted aggression by two empires that started the war. We only did what was best for all of humanity - just like in this war. Remember, we did not start this war. Ask Poland, Greece, and Turkey how they feel about your invasions of their respective countries.

                        Ahh...a miss understanding. I was referencing a propaganda piece by the Nazi Government concerning WWI. Please see several posts above for the original information.

                            You better hope so, anyway.

                            Oh, and ask the Poles, the Balts, the Romanians and the Hungarians how they feel about Soviet aggression while you are grandstanding. Goebbels is, even as we speak.

                              • How sad, how pathetic, how predictable, the little boxer starts to yap and the dumb old bear stumbles out to its ball and does the same old trick.

                                In 1805 Alexander wrecked his army while the Brits sat in England and laughed.
                                In the Napoleonic wars tens of thousands of Russians died to stop the Frogs while the Brits expanded their empire.
                                In 1914 millions of Russians died while the Brits expanded their empire.
                                Will tens of millions of Russians die this time to expand the British Empire?

                                Oh well we helped get rid of the czar last war, we’ll get rid of the commie-czars this war.
