Yes Stalin was the leader of the country but he was hated by all the people. Lenin was the man who created the Soviet Unoin and he insisted that Stalin wouldn't be the leader after him.
The only reason that everyone dosen't speak German to this day, if it wasn't for their defence in Stalinberg you today would be living i na facist world screaming Hailz Hitler!!
A country who's army (soldiers) were considered to be the toughest and bravest soldiers in the world. Training and fighting was something that no American soldier did or could do.
A country were the people are cultured nicley dressed and good looking, unlike the rednecks (ex. G.W.Bush) that America has.
Please before commenting on a country that you have no idea about, considering the massive propaganda that has been pumped into by a society where a movie star makes more money than a doctor, think twice and do not write anything.
Now it's Russia and it's still powerful armed with many nukes and missles (were do you think the terrorists in the middle east get their supplies, us of course -.-).
Russia now is a tatter of a shread. Their military has less than 400,000. Their ships are afraid to sail beyond their coastlines. Their "government" is more corrupt than any American coroporation. Their money is worthless. Boy, Russia is such a grand place now!
The USSR's military was the most problem-ridden ever to have existed and they would not have won against the United States in a land war.
-A country that fueled its economic rise from money stolen from wealthy peasants
-A country that had been a one party system since Lenin
-A country that controlled or heavily influenced most of the Eastern hemisphere
-A country whose economy could not sustain itself
-A country that committed atrocities similar to those of Hitler
-A country that was originally created in a bloody revolution which was encouraged by the germans in world war i to get russia to withdraw from the war
-The adversary of the united states during the cold war
-A country that pretty much did more harm than good
If russia invaded america during the cold war, they would give the americans standardized health care, and affordable housing.
Russian Diplomat: That is what we wanted you to think!
