Comrades,

Are we really so blind or so ignorant that we cannot seperate the =
"murderous bungles" from the achievements?  Why is it so difficult to =
admit that both positive and negative can come from the hands of a =
single man?

By implying that since MOST of Stalin's exploits were "murderous =
bungles" then the same can be said about ALL of Stalin's exploits you =
are guilty of a serious logical error and have over simplified the real =
world.

Or you simply have your eyes closed.=20
