Rather than do what our American friends are doing and be out right anti-Communist I to am wondering why the Russian people put up with so much through their history? To me living in in the West it seems the Russian people have constant suffering under the Tsars then the Soviet era. T34 could you also share any experiences of The Great Patriotic War that your family may have? We need a wider member base and hope you aren't put off by the anti-commie Yanks over there. We aren't going to be able to change your views but I would like to know why you still have them.
