    It's funny: that's the same argument often used to defend Christopher Columbus and his killing of the native people in America.

    When you make statements like that matclone it exposes your ignorance of history in two entirely different centuries.

    Pretty much, I think Pol Pot might win in a per capita contest, but for sheer numbers he's no where near Mao, Comrade Joe, or Adolf.

    Mao was so frigging crazy and paranoid by the time of his death he had ordered the execution of all his comrades who survived 'the long march'.
    Stalin has his own little thread in Hell .

    Tell us YOUR assessment of Ol' Uncle Joe Matty! You seem to imply that we're all wrong or have given Uncle Joe a bad rap.

    Tell us how we're all wrong (Big being the notable exception of course), Make us understand.
