Soviet sniper, Lyudmila Pavlichenko, credited with killing 309 Nazis

Listen, I've been a conscript, I know what it's like when you are expected by everyone around you to go join the military when the alternative is jail time. I don't symphatize with any government that lies to its people and locks them up for arbitrary reasons. My grandmother had to leave her home when the USSR invaded. They killed a lot of innocent people. It's not a question of communism vs fascism, fuck them both.

What do you think would have happened to the german soldiers if they would have given up, when the soviets struggled to even feed their own men? It's a slippery slope when you start to dehumanize you political opponents and is in fact what leads down to authoritarianism.
