Andrew Jackson and General Winfield Scott had their share of blood on their hands as well as the Bush1/Clinton/Bush2 Iraq saga. Stalin was a monster, no doubt. But that didn't mean all of their successive leaders were (anymore than what's usual for leaders). But for you to say I'm apologising is the height of childish reasoning. We were talking about what Kruschev said and I stated that the Cold War was more ballyhoo, propaganda and was keading towards it was a way for some people to get rich off of the military when that money could have been better spent or saved.
You seem to be ignoring the fact that the soviet expanded across most of europe killing millions more in the process. They demonstrated very clearly that their intention was to take over the entire world. The only reason they never tried for us or our allies is because of the military might we wielded. To believe for a moment that anything but our military kept them from attacking us or our allies is very naive indeed.
