"Irritatingly, for example, the second world war in Europe did not begin when the Nazis victimised the Soviets in 1941, but in 1939, with the German invasion of Poland. German aggression was aided by the Molotov-Ribbentrop (or Hitler-Stalin) Pact of the same year.

In its wake, Stalin assisted Hitler in carving up Poland in 1939, before waging war on Finland in 1939-40, and moving to take over Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, as well as Bessarabia and the Northern Bukovina in 1940. The brutality of these annexations – the arrests, deportations, executions – prevent an unambiguously positive narrative of the Soviet Union’s second world war."

https://www.history.com/topics/world-war-ii/geneva-convention Nazi Germany's U-boat followed the Geneva Convention during the extremely cold winter of 1939-1940. The U.S.S.R. under Stalin didn't sign the Geneva Convention so Nazi German military viewed and treated the Soviet civilians as subhuman. Not abiding by international rules has consequences, repercussions, and reverberations of revenge.

Karma exists. Reliable imposition of accountability matters, not just for the steely one, Stalin, but for the imaginary-Christos X one, too.

When I first arrived in New York, there were these subway signs: No Littering, No Spitting.

After the late 1970s hellish-years' musical fecundity, this sign was added: No Radio Playing.

I suspect that the No Spitting signs had been added after much immigration from where it's common to spit in the streets ( probably due to an old habit arising from living with much air pollution.)

Actually, all three types of notice were irrelevant to me because I was trained not to litter or spit since childhood. I also didn't have any desire or money to lug around an expensive ¿heavy? boom box precariously balanced on my shoulder with one hand while twitching my body to the rhythm of the booming music ( yeah, I wasn't a dark-skinned male youth.)

在来自红色中国的难民安定下来之后,香港的经济迅速发展。 有才华的人与众不同。 当毛泽东的错误政策使数以千万计的中国人饿死时,那些定居香港的亡灵帮助了其中一些人。 尽快从红色中国逃出来。财富可以再次获得, 要自由则困难得多了。

Wow ! The U.S. was so fortunate to have Trump at the helm for this pandemic. Emperor M@ caused the deaths of 35-55 million Chinese but Trumpery had saved at least 40 million Americans demonstrating U.S. superiority to the World. 西方红, 太阳升。美国出了个川普理。 Is it all going to be conversions to military dictatorships from hereon in via coup d'etats ? M@ wrote, "Power comes out of the barrel of a gun." The U.S. population is blessed with the ownership of the most guns per capita ( probably achieving yet another all-time high after the January 6th, 2020, insurrection storming the Capitol for a ¿slaughter? )

Trump had control of "the Big Red Button" but never pressed it thus saving at least forty million American lives. He's a God-fearing devout Christian who held on to the Bible with his right hand "in order to grab them by their pussies." The Proud Boys were prepared for the Revolution on January 6th. Why did the people chant "Hang my pants?" Did some dude piss in their pants? There was no Fruit of the Boom anywhere nearby.
