As bad as the Third Reich. Yeah, they're government beat old Hitler away from his oil fields, but look what we got in place of Nazi oppression - Soviet oppression instead. And almost as bad, too.

The USSR did not allow religion. Fact.

The USSR spent enough on useless space exploration to feed its entire starving population. Fact.

The USSR's military was ill-equipt and at NO point was a military match for NATO's or even the United State's alone if a full-scale war had erupted. Fact.

Why do things dissapear? Becuase they don't work. Fact.

The USSR is gone. Fact.
"he USSR was inefficient, and the government was a bit heavy-handed, but if you think it was evil, or that its collapse was a good thing, you are an idiot, just ask <b> anyone who has actually lived there</b>."

Inefficient? It broke down becuase it couldn't support itself anymore! Heavy-handed is a far cry for the 20 MILLION people their government butchered.

How can that idiot defend them becuase of their rediculous and now nearly defunct space program? Ignorance is bliss.
Ask Russians now about it and they say they want it back becuase their military is being man-handled by a few thousand Muslim terrorists.

Ask those millions who were SELECTIVELY STARVED by the Soviet government and you will get a different story. Oh wait, you can't - they're dead!

1.The country on most classroom maps where Russia should be. Some schools deal with them being outdated by putting up captions saying 'Can you spot which country's have changed?'.
Most simply hope that no-one notices (they don't)

2. Also, where Linka from Captain Planet is from in the early seasons. It later beomes 'Eastern Europe'

United Soviet Socialist Republic

Russian abbreviation:

CCCP

Current day Russia
Former Soviet Union
You'd think that the former USSR would have more nuclear missles than the United States...
