If people are too lazy to scroll down to get the English, I'd be willing to redo all the speech bubbles if someone else would host it.

Yes, Stalin would be good compared to the Nazis. One of my profs is a former freedom fighter against the Nazis. Except he was Romanian, so "freedom" and "Communism" were the same thing to him at the time.

Didn't Stalin kill more of his own people than Hitler killed Jews et cetera?

Yeah, but per capita, I think the ratio is a lot lower.

"Per capita" considering what, Germany? Hitler didn't work (if you can use that word) just in Germany, he had, like, a really solid chunk of Europe under his control. Granted, that's still probably not the same as the population of Russia, but still.
And I'm really not sure if it's more evil to kill your own people or just people you consider "undesirable" who are not related to you (at least by your way of measuring things).

In a way they were his people too. Hitler was never positive who his father was, but it was thought that it might have been a jewish man. Not to mention that they were his people in the sense that a lot of the jews were in his country.

Yes, but the point is that Hitler was trying to remove people whose humanity he denied (at least officially). Stalin never tried to claim the people he killed weren't human.

Well, history has shown that it's totally ok to kill off your own people. It's killing people next door that starts wars. Doesn't really matter the degree of evil tho. They were both terribly evil and now dead....we hope...

Scary Scary, But I think that its cool how they describe the historical events behind the comic. In Russia thou there are still people who consider Stalin a great leader. At the time only those high up in the government truly knew the extent of the purges. on February 25, 1956, Krushchev gave what is today called his "Secret Speech" to the 20th Party Congress, in this speech over the course of hours he detailed the shocking repressions of the Stalinist era, the force confessions, torture, and judical murder. These people were shocked, because the cult of personality surrounding Stalin was so strong that they could not even fathom the depths of his depravity. ( Suny, Ronald Grigor. The Soviet Experiment . 1998 Oxford University Press; pg 392 ) The Soviet people as a whole thou would not find out about this until many many years later. [/b]

Yay for random close tags!

Yet another of the myriad reasons UBBC sucks my nonexistent cock.
