Read West’s book, and THEN tell me that Stalin did not win WW II.
Yup. Remember it well. My dad was assigned to a post in London in the early ‘60s and when I was 15 my Mom and I took a tour which included Berlin. We actually crossed into East Berlin at Checkpoint Charlie. What a contrast. Still mounds of debris everywhere from the war. One item I remember specifically, an eagle with it’s wings spread atop a swastika. I also still have a souvenir map showing the wall and barbed wire around the city. Meaningless to youngsters today who have no idea just how bad things were for those trapped on the east side of the wall. Oh yeah. Reagan had NOTHING to do with it. WRONG!
Personally, I give all the credit to Pope John Paul XXIII and his fantastical time machine.
