Here's a few of his quotes from scattered sources:

"Cherish the management. Cherish it as the gold reserve of the Party"

"One death is a tragedy. A million deaths is a statistic"

"How many divisions has the Pope? I have 300"

"The Americans are like a Russian woman, the more you beat them, the more they love you"

"Installing communism in Poland would be like putting a saddle on a cow"

Soviet womanhood: "herrings with ideas"

"Invite a Russian peasant into your house and he will put his feet up on your table"

On learning of Hitler's Suicide "Now he's done it! ... the Bastard!"

"Western democracy must be a wretched system if it could exchange a great man like Churchill with Attlee"

"True solidarity is found in cemetery"

"It requires a brave man to be a coward in the Red Army"

"You can't make a revolution with silk gloves"

Quite possibly my favorite quote ever.
Sure he's a psycho, but at least he's a realist psycho.

Wow, I'm so inspired that I have an almost overwhelming urge to put an ice axe into the brain of my (defeated and exiled) rival, and invade my next door neighbors.

My favorite Stalin quote

"Nobody respects a country with a poor army, but everybody respects a country with a good army. I raise my toast to the Finnish Army."

Joseph Stalin, 1948

A guy was interrogated by NKVD. After hours of beating he wanted at least to know why:
"Officer, please tell me what I am suspected of?"
The officer looked out to the street and said:
"They all are supected. You are already condemned."

personally, i liked stalin ^^

sure he killed a lot of people, but he also killed traitors in the process...

and he singlehandedly turned a peasant country into a modern industrialised nation... within the space of 2 years

Yeah, he killed a lot of people, but what he made of the Soviet Union is remarkable, handling territory from the Ukraine to Kamchatka, and sustaining the blow of WWII against odds.

In May 1942, Nazi submarines sank two Mexican tankers, and Mexico declared war against the Axis powers. Thus forming the 201st Mexican Fighter Squadron equipped with the P-47D and sent to fight in the Pacific

Stalin's legacy: fratricide. During the purges of the 30's, he killed more Russian officers than Hitler did in the 40's. That's a unique way to inspire trust.

I just love this quote from Stalin.. He supposedly said this when being confronted with that the quality of the German army is better than quantity of the Russian army.

Quantity is a quality in it self.

Are you people serious? Who in their right mind would look back fondly on sayings and aphorisms of one of the most brutal mass murderers in history? And as for the cretin who said "sure he killed a lot of people, but he got the traitors too", jeez, what planet are you living on?! There were no "traitors", just Stalin's political opponents. Men who, it might be added, would have done a much better job of preparing the USSR to meet the inevitable German invasion in 1941. Goddam are you people insane if you think Stalin was a lesser monster than Hitler. As one person here sensibly pointed out, why don't you put up a "In remembrance of Adolph Hitler" post?

Not exactlry. Stalin killed about 20 million all in the labor camps and prisons + abut 250 thousand soviets and finns during the Finnish war. Hitler killed 27 million of soviet citizens only. Add to that German casualties (millions i would imagine). Plus 6 million Polish jews. So im gessing Hitler is responsible for at least 10 million deaths more than Stalin.

The one thing that makes me really pissed off at Stalin is (besides him him killing alot of innocent people, some were, some werent) was him not releasing POW's after the war was over. Now im not just talking about the SS, im talking about the regular German, and other countries men as well. These men did their duty and they were forced to work in labor camps well into the 1950's and some even longer. The great Ace of all Aces, Erich Hartmann, conducted a diesese well in one of these camps, and later it killed him.

SOrces I have read include the total figure of deaths during the second world war including civilians and military as being Ca 52 million. Where do your figures come from? They sound very very high.

Secondly I am confused by those admiring Stalin. I would be very supprised to see a thread by someone admiring what Hitler did.

Too many members have brought this down to a numbers game. Stalin and Hitler were two of the most evil men in the history of mankind. One million or one hundred million what's the difference.

And there's no need to get confused if some have admiration for either man. They're members in this forum who's values are sick and completely lost. Try to keep their names in mind, you won't be confused in future discussions.

I don't think anyone here's really looking to honour Stalin or look back on him fondly. The title of the thread is 'in remembrance', there's no judgement implied. And however despicable they were, I think we're obligated to remember both Hitler and Stalin as an object lesson.

I think the point of the thread was more to draw attention to the fact that Stalin was, if nothing else, an excellent quote.

First off, i dont admire Stalin.
Second, i am Ukrainan. My great grandfather was a survivor of an artificial hunger of the 30s. His brother was taken to Siberia by NKVD never to be seen or heard of again.

All i was saying was that Hitler is responsible for more deaths than Stalin.

Well, given that the first post of the thread is nothing but quotes, I'd say that that IS the point.

Of course, now it seems to be a pi$$ing contest to see who had the bigger body count. How lovely.

Being facetious even when evil is without a doubt doesn't seem to be possible here. The title and point made in the original post (by me) should be obvious. A bunch of quotes?

As far as it being a pi$$ing contest, that's stateing it politely.
