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.’”

While we were condemning Japan’s aggression in China we were selling them the scrap metal to feed their war machine. Nothing personal against China; it was just business.

Hey, we sold the Chinese airplanes (its a great story - read The Ragged Rugged Warriors by Martin Caiden sometime). Big deal. It IS business and it doesn’t stop for war.

Or don’t you know the story from WWI about the Brits paying Krupp Arms a penny royalty for every fuse of a certain type, because they licensed it from Krupp?

In fact Russians admitted both a crime and a responsibility of their top leadership long time ago.
For a known reason there is noone left alive to be brought to trial.
For some else reason Poland want to have this tragic event as a center of it’s international policy after so many years.
Do they want Russians to apologize 24/7 or what?
To me it is a nasty minority mentality, kinda LGBT and racial minorities lusting some kind or affirmative action out of a guilt complex of either party.

Main point: Poland is barely a victim. It was a jackal crushed by a bear in process of looting. Why noone mentions the fact Poland was allied to Hitler too prior to Russian invasion and it was happy to invade Chekhoslovakia along with Germans to grab land and kill people?

As for Stalin he was among the first to stand to nazy backing republicans in Spain against nationalist backed by Hitler. In 1938 USSR offered France and Britain an alliance to attack Hitler and it wasn’t accepted.
He had no choice but to sign a pact with nazy to get some time.

I’m not about to find any excuse for this crime but you have to see things as is to avoid bias.

Sir, I think you are blind to facts. Read what Russians are saying in official documents for this crime... Do not show off your lack of knowledge.
US administrations had been hiding evidence for many years.
Yes, I know that not many people are interested in POWs from Vietnam or North Korea. It is not news anymore...
You should probably look for better quality information about Katyn case...
What you wrote is just Soviet/Russian propaganda...
I am sorry to say but you look like as if you would be drunk from Kremlin/stupid propaganda.
Stalin first to stand against Nazi? Have you heard anything about secret Soviet pact called Ribbentropp-Molotov pact? Don’t you know that Stalin was Hitler’s ally in killing Jews, Poles and other nations until finally Hitler decided to invade Soviets?
I am just amazed how ignorant your comment is!

I’m fully aware of Molotov-Ribentropp pact.
All I want to say it wasn’t a single pact around at the time.
Late 30s was a hot time in Europe. Neither party is innocent there.
I recomend you to read Kissinger’s “Diplomacy” on the subject.
I don’t like Kissinger that much and disagree with some of his opinions but his book is pretty correct in terms of facts he used to back this opinions.

And what exactly wrong with Russian official documents on Katyn massacre? They have definately admitted both a crime and their responsibility.
