    Btw, the Hero of the Soviet Union Antonov was shot down AND captured by airmen of the JG 52 fighter wing in 1943. They had dinner with him and took pictures and then he was sent off to a POW camp and no one knows what happened to him…

    “Red Army soldiers are capturing the destroyed German tank Pz.Kpfw. IV Ausf F-2. The tank does not have a bow gun” Someone said the picture is staged. It is and the tank without any stowage on the outside has been dead a while. The rear end of the tank is burned up and if you look at the tracks they are black meaning more than likely a tail shot. The bow gun was taken by the crew when they ditched the tank as a crew served weapon so they would have a substantial weapon for defense while falling back for another tank. Stalin was big on propaganda pictures and the Soviet Army spent everyday until it died as a propaganda machine. Now thanks to this website we can see the real Russia. China and North Korea are other propaganda machines.

    “The Soviet tankman is on the captured German tank Pz.Kpfw IV in Vladikavkaz.” Another dead tank used for the propaganda war by Stalin. Notice the extrememly slack track under comrade tanker?

    The miseries of war (thanks to nationalism).

    War is not over, as many still suffer from it. Nevertheless, people forgot long ago about why and how things like nazism had been able to get social influence. People who were deadly enemies each other are now living in the fantasy world that everyone in the world is an angel. But when they are tired of pretending to be angel they go back to the opposite side and vote to the ultra, saying “The Emperor is wearing nothing!” These scenes are not the past. They are the future.
