Victims of Communism Memorial

The Harper government is promoting a 5,000-square-metre Memorial dedicated to the Victims of Communism. The cost (estimated to be as high as twelve million dollars) will come mostly from taxpayers.
To be fair this should be none-partisan and include a memorial to victims of Anti-Communism.
To this end the Second World War would get top billing as an example of the evils of Anti-Communism.
The Treaty of Versailles (which limited Germany’s military assets) was wilfully breached with the tacit understanding that Hitler would go east and rid the world of the Godless Communists in the Soviet Union.
Five years and 60 million deaths later, it was these Godless Communists that kept the rest of Europe from having to learn how to speak German.
This is well documented in a book titled, “In Our Time: The Chamberlain-Hitler Collusion.” Let that put Chamberlain’s “appeasement” to rest.
For the rest of the Twentieth Century, the west (mostly NATO countries) made a career out of making the world safe for dictatorships. In the name of Ant-Communism, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Indonesia (2.5 million more deaths) and 52 other countries had their sovereignty grievously violated.
This too is well documented in William Blum’s book, “Killing Hope-U.S. and CIA Interventions since World War II”
The Hypocrisy of Harper’s half truths should not go unchallenged.
