The major crime of WWII that was never brought to trial
Christian Concepts Daily ^ | May 17th, 2012 | Herbert Romerstein

The American communists joined in the Soviet propaganda campaign. Corliss Lamont, a millionaire communist propagandist, wrote “Soviet Russia’s severance of relations with the Polish Government-in-Exile, over the Nazi-inspired charge that the Russians murdered 10,000 Polish army officers, shows clearly the danger to the United Nations of the splitting tactics engineered by Hitler and definitely helped along by the general campaign of anti-Soviet propaganda carried on during recent months in Britain and America. According to the London Bureau of the New York Herald Tribune, ‘It is a safe assumption that the Poles would not have taken so tough an attitude toward the Soviet Government if it had not been for the widespread support Americans have been giving them in the cases of Henry Ehrlich and Victor Alter.’”

It is amazing that over six decades after WWII the historical narration about this crime is still not being acknowledged by so many in the West

World War II was the only War in American history that had no major anti-war movement. I grew up thinking it was because our nation's survival was at stake and everybody was in it together to defeat the people who wanted to take over our country.

What I've come to believe (especially after 9/11), is that the reason there was no real anti-war movement in WW II, was because Hitler invaded the Leftists' hero-nation The Soviet Union, and everything and anything had to be done to save them. This explains why people like George McGovern became war heroes.

Otherwise known as "speaking the truth".

One of the worst crimes of WWII was the surrendering of Eastern Europe to Stalin; the war that started when Britain & France went to war to defend Poland (oddly enough, only declaring war against Germany, invading from the west, while ignoring the Soviet invasion from the east that actually resulted in the Katyn massacre) resulted in Poland (and many other countries) being given to Soviet masters instead of Nazi masters.

Churchill realized this at the time and was furious; the Western allies fought for (and got) nothing.

Yep, never has such an abject failure to accomplish a war’s original aims been so falsely yet successfully described as a ‘victory’.
Britain would have been better off staying out of the war and give the French time to complete the Maginot line across the Belgian border...

RE :"Not only did (USSR/Stalin) communists and NKVD agents carry out the propaganda campaign but, unfortunately, the United States government helped them. The Office of War Information (OWI) tried to intimidate the Polish-American radio stations and newspapers when they told the truth about the Soviet atrocity against the Poles.
Alan Cranston was head of the Foreign Language Division of the OWI and later a U.S. Senator from California. He called a meeting of OWI officials because the Polish-American radio stations “had taken a rather antagonistic attitude toward Russia” on the Katyn forest issue. Cranston felt that this “was inimical to the war effort and should be straightened out”. The radio stations and newspapers were contacted and threatened with being closed down if they continued to tell the truth about the Soviet Union.
"

You know the saying: Stalin was better than Hitler so he is our friend.

Meanwhile US communists were infesting the US government under Roosevelt at the same time, but heck, at least they were not Nazis.

US Communists fought to keep the US out of the war until the USSR was invaded. They flipped over night and many of their members, drawn to the anti-war fervor of the Communists, left the movement.
Later we discovered the US Communist Party was under the pay of the USSR.

Its about the horrible massacre - but its also about the duplicitous cover-up that followed.

American tools of the COMINTERN.

True, but what else could the West have done? Stalin never would have left Eastern Europe just because you asked him to do so.

It would have probably taken the threat of the atomic bomb to push Stalin back. Patton's tanks alone could not have done it. The Red Army in 1945 was a formidable, battle-hardened force.

Would the American or British people have supported the use of atomic weapons against the Soviets, just to liberate Eastern Europe? No way.

I am with you 1000% on that.

I thought Joe McCarthy laid it out perfectly in his book “America’s Retreat From Victory” where he outlined how we screwed them at Yalta.

I firmly believe Alger Hiss had a hand in it.

It was shameful.

Arguably, the Soviets did do most of the heavy lifting on the land campaigns against the Third Reich. They tied up more divisions, killed more Germans and German Allies, and took more casualties.
Unlike us, they sure as heck were not going home without some Territorial concessions.

My father liked to point out that WWII was a bit of a “Polish joke” in that Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia invaded Poland - and THE ENTIRE WORLD went to war - to make sure that Soviet Russia got ALL of it.

As to the impulse to ignore the Soviets ideology and atrocities during the war while they were ostensibly our allies - Churchill said something along the lines of...

“If Hitler invaded Hell - I would find a few kind words to say about the Devil.”

World War II was the only War in American history that had no major anti-war movement.

There was an ENORMOUS anti-war movement at the beginning of WW II in the US. Groups like American Peace Mobilization held a 1,029-hour non-stop peace demonstration in front of the White House.

The demonstration stopped at the exact time that Hitler invaded the USSR, and the group immediately started calling for the US to enter the war.

Even the ones chained into their aircraft and in the punishment, death battalions charging the Germans. Their mass murdering dictator had ways of pushing his enslaved people forward and having them endure the cost.

Didn't FDR have his security clearance yanked for a while because he was careless with classified documents?
