A quick profile of Mr J Stalin and his wonderful policies.
Mr Joseph Stalin was actually born Iosif Vissarionovich Dzhugashvili but he adopted the name Stalin which is Russian for 'man of steel' and it wasn't long before Joe lived up to this name by becoming one of the most ruthless leaders the world has ever known.
In 1923 he became Secretary General of the Comunnist Party and by 1929 he was ruler of the Soviet Union. As soon as he came to power he began what historians refer to as 'The Great Purge' in which he began to arrest members of his own Communist Party who he felt might be a threat to him in some way. It seems that Joey must have been slightly paranoid because in his time as ruler (1929-1953) over half a million of his own party members were either arrested and executed of sent off to a Siberian labour camp, which is really the same as being executed, only slower.
In an effort to modernise the country he had some 25 million farmers rounded up and placed on State owned farms and 'encouraged' to work on them to strict methods and practices in an attempt to increase the countrys' output. I'm afraid that most of the farmers perished.
Historians estimate that Joe 'the man' Stalin was responsible for the arrest/torture/execution of some 15 million of his own people.
A staggering amount ! more than twice the amount that perished in Hitlers' deathcamps !
anyway, a question for Yoshie.
Do you think Jelena should play it safe and skip Miami?
