You left out Stalin and Pol Pot.
I tried editing it, no success. You are right.

Russia's Communist, ex-student to be Catholic priest - turned atheist - Joseph Stalin killed at least 20,000,000.

Paul Pot, sometimes described as "the Hitler of Cambodia", killed between 1 and 3 million.

Why would anyone called Pol Pot the "Hitler of Cambodia"?

Oh dear, Bauble - you have got it bad, haven't you?!

Let me explain:

Hitler was a right wing fascist.
Pol Pot was a left wing Communist or Nihilist, promoting a Year Zero return to Khmer roots.

Hitler desired an industralised, militarised future.
Pol Pot desired a rural, pre-industralised past.

Hitler wished to enslave lesser, other peoples.
Pol Pot wishes to enslave his own people.

Hitler promoted education and learning.
Pol Pot dismissed education and learning as being western contaminants.

Hitler was expansionist.
Pol Pot's focus was always internal, cutting Cambodia off from the rest of the world.

Thus, the two have remarkably little on common.

The so called Holocaust needs to be down graded from 6 million to around 2 hundred thousand at the most. :cool:
Bollocks.

My Polish uncle was in a camp and I've met several Jewish survivors.
They'd have to be bloody good actors to fake those expressions.

No, I'm with 'around 6 million dead in Nazi camps' and won't accept any political bullshit that says otherwise.

Why would anyone called Pol Pot the "Hitler of Cambodia"?
charismatic leaders with large body counts?

True enough with the body counts, but Pol Pot was more mysterious than charismatic - many Cambodians never saw as much as a picture of him while he was in power.

Try imagine the body count he had then

The mass appeal hitler had.

That's another level of leadership skills.

Perhaps the question of genocide can be parced out to better describe the MOTIVE of the mass killing?

For example, assume that people start killing people of the same nationality, but of different ethnic values.

Ethnocide might be the better decriptive term.


But whatever we call these events, and whatever the motive behind those events, I think we can all agree that these events are MASS KILLINGS on an industrial scale.

You suck at spin, Mr. Limpet, and it speaks to your character that you would even try to play at such games, considering the topic, just to protect your incredibly fragile little ego.

See #64.

Hitler and Pol Pot have very, very little in common, either in terms of ideology or practice.

It's funny to watch the Finnish Cliff Clavin stutter, stammer, and try to spin his way out of yet another stupid declaration.

There were at least 6 million Jews massacred. But don't try and convince Islamo nazis... Oh that's exactly why are they are so termed... Starting with that garbage al-Husseini, Hitler's buddy buddy.

If anyone ever wanted to hear what a spanked child sounded like, here is a pretty good example.


Perhaps if you stopped stalking me around the board I might not be so tempted to humiliate you?

Stop stalking, address topics instead of posters and I imagine you might find posting a little more enjoyable. As it is you have this huge sign above your post that says "Kick Me".

Perhaps if you weren't so busy humiliating yourself you might get around to it, Cliffy. Its fun to watch someone who wants so badly to be arrogant make a fool of himself.

Both were collectivists (look it up), both murdered vast quantities of their own citizens, both felt that individual rights and responsibilities were cute but didn't apply to their countries.

You see dear boy, there are only two types of governmental system, collectivist and individualist. It matters not what they call themselves, the only thing that matters is how the individual is treated within the boundaries of that government.

Westwall -

The fact that extreme right wing dictatorships and extreme left wing dictatorships are both dictatorships does not mean they are the same thing.
