«Мы идём за великую Родину,
Нашим братьям по классу помочь.
Каждый шаг, нашей армией пройденный,
Прогоняет зловещую ночь…» (с) Песня красных полков
Этот рисунок понравился даже мне самому, как ни странно. Впервые я кое-как детализировал фон и наложил освещение. Ну и наконец-то рисую то, что действительно хочу. Мои любимые БТшечки и Ишачки :3. К сожалению, на понях я выдохся, так что их качество средненькое. Отдельное спасибо boneswolbach.deviantart.com за оригинальный бэкграунд.
Special thanks to boneswolbach.deviantart.com for original background.
I don't think it's the case, this time. The parallel is much too obvious to be a coincidence.
And, just for ''fun'', I Google-translated the first paragraph :
« "We're going for the great motherland,
Our class brothers help.
Every step of our army passed,
Banishes the sinister night ... "(c) The song of the Red regiments »
The Soviet Union did NOT have the racial cleansing agenda that Nazi Germany had.
Also, about the fake claims of mass rapes orchestrated by Soviet Leadership, let us remember that EVRY single war in the history of mankind has had them.
Also, I think that after having the Soviet Union almost destroyed, with 28 million souls lost, thousands of cities and towns razed to the ground and an apocalyptic destruction of Russia, Belarus and Ukraine, the Soviet Army could have easily let themselves be carried away by an avenging rage of wanton killing and destruction. Because, you know th JUDEO-CHRISTIAN law of "Eye by Eye, tooth by tooth".
The Soviets could have easily killed 28 million german civilians but they didnt, they were better than the nazis. They showed restraint and also, Russia rebuilt Poland and East Germany.
Hitler's view, the US had become a major power by 'ethnic cleansing' of the native inhabitants: he saw clearly that the US itself, which poses as a nation state, is in fact an Empire.
It's just that the anninhilation [sic] of the indigenous inhabitants was so complete that we don't see the US as an Empire. As Finkelstein has pointed out, Hitler's 'push for the East' was explicitly inspired by the American setttlers 'push for the West'.
As Adam Tooze reveals in his superb Wages of Destruction, it's true that Hitler compared the Russians to Indians, but it's ALSO true that he compared them to AMERICAN Indians. As the Indians had been pushed off their lands and herded off to reservations, so the Russians (and Poles) would be herded off to super-concentration camps: i.e. neo-reservations, where, Hitler hoped, their numbers would be 'thinned' to the extent that Germans could easily rule them while using them as cheap labour (and this is where the comparison with British India comes in)
If you count the war deaths out, the UDSSR had been killing more, but also in a longer period of time.
Also I don´t think it matters if you kill more or less, if you are willing to kill for you goals, you are equal in being bad.
