    These crimes were in-human my parents used to tell me of such things when they were alive, I’ve never had to come to terms with the loss of loved ones through a war or genecide but the fact remains no-one should have to come to terms with it and no-one should ever be targeted in such a way, Hitler, Stalin and others like them should never be put in power by any person, apart from the cruelty and eventual death by torture etc of so many individuals these crimes are so horrific they make me break down in tears, such acts by fellow human beings are disgusting, I am a 57 year old man and I could never hurt another person in that way.

    Well i will admit those crimes were horrible but as history proves itself the more poreful race will in the end try to kill off the not so powerful one. I mean even our great country the U.S.A. committed an act of genocide when we killed off all the indians whos land we needed. The Israelies are doing it Beruit. Then Turks did it to the armenians. Germans tried to do it to the Jews. Stalin just killed everyone. And the Chinese did it cause it cause in the great words of Mao Zedong “China is such a populous nation, it is not as if we cannot do without a few people.” So as i come to an end of my drunken rant i guess what im trying to say is a question to the world. Now i do agree that genocide is a gruesome and disgusting act, Isn’t it a necisary evil to keep countrys that commit the act from being overpopulated and hence killing even more in the end?

    Let’s see: Pol Pot killed over one million Cambodians. And WHY did he rise to power? What PRECEDED his meteoric rise? VIETNAM! What caused vietnam? A bunch of lies about the Gulf of Tonkin Incident that STARTED this war in the early 1960′s. How many Vietnamese DIED as a result of this obvious false flag project: One million! Who was directly responsible for sending our troops? Lyndon Johnson. How many Americans died? Almost 58,000. (For more on another major and recent FF operation, go to: http://www.AE911truth.org. Also google the term for a chronology of the many orchestrated by the U.S.)

    What about the Phillipine invasion in 1898? How many Phillipines did WE kill? 500,000! What about lies of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq that brought us to the second gulf war? Almost one million Iraqis dead! What about Bush linking Saddam Hussein to 9/11 when there was no such link? No problem–over 50 percent of Americans believed such a link existed.

    What about “allowing” the Lusitania to sail into German controlled waters, KNOWING that German U-boats were in the area? No problem–Wilson was itching for an excuse to enter world war I. After it sunk, 1 million Americans entered World War I. (Who knew about the 21,000 millionaires created by such a war.)

    As for the “reasons” we’ve gone into so many different wars, we need only look to the INCREDIBLE profits of the war profiteers. Just one CEO (of Haliburton) has “earned” $100,000,000 in the previous 7 years. Not bad for a war started on lies.

    Yes, those four individuals mentioned were awful people, but we ought not to avoid this question: What horrible things have WE done in the name of peace? We all “hate” Saddam Hussein, but seem to not know that he was our “friend” during his eight year war with Iran. When our State Department visited him in January of 1990 and said, “We know you’re having issues with Kuwait…if you go in, we’ll leave you alone.” Well, it was a perfect set up to “bring down” the country that REFUSED to continue selling us their oil in “dollars” (look at our disdain for Venezuela–same thing. We’ll continue to love Saudi Arabia since they agreed to sell us their oil in dollars in 1971. No wonder they can commit ANY atrocities and we look the other way.) Well, we know what happened after S. Hussein entered Kuwait. We had been planning the invasion for about six months and within days, we bombed the heck out of Iraq.

    So folks, sorry about the rambling letter, but we simply do NOT know our history, but pretend to know it.

    We’ve supported brutal dictators for centuries. What’s the difference between funding repressors? (Ever think about the millions of Palestinians living in prison and apartheid like conditions? Three billion dollars will buy a lot of repression! How about Pinochet? It was us that engineered/allowed the coup in 1973 that brought him to power for the next 17 years. Suharto in Indonesia? Brutal dictator, but he received the blessings of the United States for 30 years.

    So, please stop white-washing history. These four individuals were tyrants, but let’s not forget, that during bombing raids in Germany, the major corporations (look at I.G.Farben, for example), were left virtually unscathed.

    Read (for just a few examples), “Secrets of the American Empire” by John Perkins, Confessions of an Economic Hitman (also by John Perkins), The Shock Doctrine, the Rise of Disaster Capitalism, by Naomi Klein and the Secret History of the United States by Howard Zinn.

    Finally, a quick quiz to see if you’ve been paying attention! How many American Indians were here (in the “United States” in 1492? Answer: 12-18 million! How many were here 393 years later, in 1885? Answer: 285,000. Now that’s genocide folks! They didn’t commit mass suicide.

    I love America just like the rest of us, but I don’t think it serves our future, by pretending we’re angels.

    So whether the deaths are INDIRECT (false flag operations) or DIRECT (pol pot, Stalin, etc.) the results are still the same: innnocent people die.

    Hitler was not an atheist. Wehrmacht belt buckles were inscribed, “God is with us.” The Holocaust was based on the writings of Martin Luther. One can hardly recognize a group to murder for religious reasons without having a religion.
    Vlad Tepes [Dracula] was decorated with medals by the Pope for his mass murders and tortures.
    There were no atheists administering the Spanish Inquisition.
    It was the Crusader, Richard I Plantagenet, who beheaded 10,000 prisoners without checking at all on their backgrounds, saying, “Kill them all and let God sort them out.
    Out of curiosity, here’s a question for those who believe in an omniscient creator deity and in the evils of atheism exemplified by this list of mass mruderers — Who do you think created Stalin, etc.?

    Adolph Hitler was a Catholic and made a number of comments that supported a belief in Christianity throughout his life.

    I’ll leave religion out of this, and just inject a fact: the deaths of 90% of the Native American population was due to diseases brought to the New World by Europeans and Africans. And the population of both of the Americas was probably around 90 million in 1492. Mexico alone probably had between 15 and 20 million when they met Cortez.

    This photo is fakery !
    These women and children in the picture are indeed Turkish women and children slaughtered by Armenians in Subatan (in Ottoman Empire) on 25 April 1918. The picture is being copied by Armenians in internet and is presented as a picture of Armenian victims.

    Adolf Hitler was a confirmed Catholic.

    That means he was required, as a child, to take part in the sacrament of confirmation. However, Hitler utterly rejected the religion of his mother, calling it “the Jewish Christ-creed with its effeminate, pity-ethics”.

    In public, Hitler occasionally wove in Christian references, to appeal to the Protestants and Catholics who made up the vast majority of German voters. In private, he was withering about Christianity, telling his fellow Nazis “I am a complete pagan”, and “the best thing is to let Christianity die a natural death…Christian doctrine will be convicted of absurdity”.

    His actions spoke even louder. He closed religious schools, shut down Christian organizations, confiscated church property, and ordered the murder of priests and the German leader of Catholic Action.

    An atheist is defined as someone who does not believe in god or gods, not as someone who rejects the dogma and morality of religion. As such, your contention and that of this web page, is in error when labeling these despots as atheists. Hitler, for one, was pretty devout whether you churchies want to admit it or not.

    From the earliest formation of the Nazi party he expressed his Christian support to the German citizenry and soldiers. He was baptized as Roman Catholic in Austria, attended a monastery school and was a communicant and an altar boy in the Catholic Church. He was confirmed as a “soldier of Christ” and his goal was to become a priest. He was never excommunicated or condemned and the church had stated that he was “Avenging for God” in attacking the Jews. He allied with Pope Pius in converting German society and made a deal with the church whereas the church absorbed Nazi ideals and preached them as part of their sermons, and in turn, Hitler placed Catholic teachings in public education. This lead to Hitler enacting doctrines of the Church as law. He outlawed all abortion, raged a death war on all homosexuals, and demanded corporal punishment in schools and home. The Nazis began to control schools insisting Christianity was taught. They included anti-Semitic Christian writings in textbooks that were not removed from doctrine until 1961. Nazi soldiers wore religious symbols and placed religious sayings on military gear. Believe me, these are NOT the actions of an atheist. In fact, he did his best to stamp out atheism, saying “We were convinced that the people needs and requires this faith. We have therefore undertaken the fight against the atheistic movement, and that not merely with a few theoretical declarations: we have stamped it out” , in a speech in Berlin on 24 Oct. 1933.

    As for Stalin, there is no way to get around the fact that in his early career, Stalin made a vast effort to rid Russia of religion, but that had *nothing* to do with atheism. It was the only way he knew to seize power of the country. Once Stalin was firmly seated in office, he revived the Russian Orthodox Church in order drum up popular support for the war effort. Stalin was part of a council convened to elect a new church Patriarch. Then the Russian theological schools were opened, and thousands of churches began to function. Even the Moscow Theological Academy Seminary was re-opened.

    So, while Stalin was no peach, he was not exactly what you would call a died-in-the-wool atheist. He was more a secular-minded religious opportunist, which is a personal character trait. He did not use atheism to gain control, but used modified religious principles to fit his own, sick and twisted method of revolution.

    And on to Pol Pot. I admit that I’m not as familiar with him as with the European dictators, but Pol Pot’s Khmer Rouge were composed of Buddhists and Pol Pot was a Theravada Buddhist. He studied at a Buddhist monastery and then at a Catholic school for 8 years. Cambodia’s communism was influenced by Theravada Buddhism. Pol Pot targeted not just different religions, but education, science and medicine in his quest for total domination. Now, let’s take a head count of atheists who are against education, science and medicine. While he was not a CHRISTIAN, he doesn’t sound like an atheist either.

    The religious harp on the (supposed) atheism of these three men as if it was the underpinnings of their entire lives and the basis for their political policies, regardless of the evidence to the contrary. I’m sure they’ll continue to do so, because (or so I believe) they cannot fathom *anyone* who believes as they believe being able to commit and condone the atrocities that these men committed and condoned. It messes with their understanding (such as it is) of the universe and the nature of their god.
