If you are stomping your feet and screaming “NO, NOT AGAIN” over this thing with Russia, you are not alone. Those of us who lived through the Cold War, up through the Ronald Reagan era, were very happy to dispose of the Russian threat when the Berlin Wall came down. We gave Russia billions in aid did we not? So why are we rattling sabers over a passenger jet that the Russian’s clearly did not shoot down. They have no reason to shoot it down! Why would they do that? It’s stupid. The government has yet to show us one shred of real evidence as to why they thought the Russians did it to begin with.
If you care to investigate, this movie is almost one and half hours, and the beginning explains why Germany has invaded Russia not once, not twice, not three times, but four times throughout the last millennium. Russia is the largest country in the world, one sixth of the world’s surface, and three times larger than the US. Their natural resources are unfathomable, even back when this documentary was made after WWII.
It plays something like a Russian PR film, but it apparently was made in America by our government, and it has some amazing quotes from the biggest leaders of the WWII era praising Russia’s role in the war. Russia had been at war with the Germans for some time before the US got involved in December of 1941 after Pearl Harbor. Many would argue that by D-Day, the Russians had already dealt Germany a death blow of defeat, and that America only came in and cleaned up the mess so that the Russians couldn’t take over all of Europe.
Why are we rattling sabers about Russia? Germany still wants Russia, and Germany just asked us for a whole bunch of their gold back and we refused. Anyone smell something?
