abel is see you are still at the afflict the comfortable stage. could you enlighten me as to just how stalin was going to get his army to japan. the russians and your overlooked chinese nationalist and chinese communist forces have never gotten the credit they deserved from western powers in helping with the disposal of japan in the far east and hitler by the russians . that still doesn’t justify your claim of pending invasion of japan. stalin did want surancy in the far east especially since he wanted greater influence for the eventual communist takeover of china. stalin wacked almost as many of his country men as hitler so i would be careful with your claims.
