  JointheArmy: <<JointheArmy> Soviet aircraft losses early on were mainly of outmoded planes far inferior to the Messerschmidts and Focke-Wulfs of the Luftwaffe.>

This is not true. 71 percent of Soviet losses - on the first day - were due to them being on the ground and not in actual dogfights. You can see that in the link I gave in my previous post.

Plus Fw-190's weren't even introduced to the front until two months after Operation Barbarossa. They didn't see significant action on any front until the allies futile attempt to break through Hitler's Atlantic wall a year after it was introduced.

I'm not questioning the superiority of the German fighter planes, but only citing the main reason for Soviet air losses on the first day was not due to inferior aircraft. Rather, most of them were still on the ground.

  Marmot PFL: <I'm not questioning the superiority of the German fighter planes, but only citing the main reason for Soviet air losses on the first day was not due to inferior aircraft. Rather, most of them were still on the ground.>

That was partly true, but even in the air their performance was underwhelming to say the least. <Soviet aircraft were largely obsolete,> <The Soviet fighter force was equipped with large numbers of obsolete aircraft, such as the I-15 biplane and the I-16, and only a few of the newer MiG and LaGG fighters. Few aircraft had radios and those that were available were unencrypted and did not work reliably. Air combat tactics were primitive.> Both quotes wikipedia, not a 100% reliable source, but I have dozens of WWII books that confirm this. Of course pilot training played a big part and here the Germans if anything had an even bigger edge. As far as Stalin weakening the Red Army through purges of the officers, that is true, but once the war started his blunders were more than offset by Hitler's.

Sep-08-07  timhortons: <goering mismanage ment of the luftwaffe> in the end part of world war 2 air superiority of the allies was due in part of hitlers insistence in focusing there resources in making v1 and v2 rocket which was during that period these rocket wasnt perfectedn yet..long ramge bomber and fighter aircraft of the allies prove superior to v1 and v2
Sep-08-07  Red October: <brankat> <If the theory and practice of Socialism is ever again going to have a fighting chance on a wider scale, it will have to purge itself from Stalinism, and sincerely adopt a Human Face> there are some who feel that Socialism in itself does not have a human face .....

  brankat: <Red October> <there are some who feel that Socialism in itself does not have a human face .....> They are wrong.
Sep-08-07  Red October: <They are wrong> yes they are wrong.. but some equate capitalism with individual freedoms and hence a more humane system, and also cite some of the harsh conditions of the "communist" bloc countries e.g. Stalin's purging, Mao's excesses etc to state that Socialism is a cold idealogy which runs contrary to human nature

  norami: They should apply Socialism to chess. Everybody wants to win games but some win more than others. It's not fair! They should set it up so everybody wins the same amount and everybody has the same rating. Then all can enjoy chess equally.

  brankat: <norami> A Revolutionary idea! :-) Unfortunately ( or fortunately? ), not quite applicable to, neither Socialism, nor Chess.

The idea is (or should be) to significantly narrow/marginalize the gap.

In Chess, through fair access to resources, training, contests...it allows more and more players to participate/compete on (if not equal), at least on a reasonably acceptable footing,

In Societies, it makes things more reasonably/acceptably equitable for more and more people.

In both cases differences will (and should) remain. Based on individual efforts, talents, contributions, resourcefulness etc.

But these will not be too huge, let alone of astronomical proportions. So that at one end there is a number of disproportionately fat swines, and at the other an in-comparably larger number of living skeletons, not only in purely physical sense, but also in educational, cultural and spiritual one.

  norami: <brankat> I recently read in Scientific American that the number of people in the world who are overweight (fat swines) is up to 20% and the number who are underweight (living skeletons) is down to 12%. Data for the educational, cultural and spiritual sense is harder to come by.

  nimh: <Ivanov applied to the Communist Party. The party committee conducts an interview. "Comrade Ivanov, do you smoke?"
"Yes, I do a little."
"Do you know that comrade Lenin did not smoke and advised other communists not to smoke?" "If comrade Lenin said so, I shall cease smoking."
"Do you drink?"
"Yes, a little."
"Comrade Lenin strongly condemned drunkenness."
"Then I shall cease drinking."
"Comrade Ivanov, what about women?"
"A little...."
"Do you know that comrade Lenin strongly condemned amoral behavior?" "If comrade Lenin condemned, I shall not love them any longer." "Comrade Ivanov, will you be ready to sacrifice your life for the Party?" "Of course. Who needs such life?">

<In the Red Square in Moscow, a line is snaking toward the Lenin's tomb. A change of guard is watched by the onlookers. A kid asks, "Daddy, why do they always keep guard at the tomb?" "Didn't you hear what they say all the time? Lenin lived, Lenin is alive, Lenin will live forever. What if , God forbid, he is indeed alive, and decides to walk out of the tomb?">

<Toward the hundredth anniversary of Lenin's birth, many Soviet plants and factories manufactured new products designed to honor the Great Leader Lenin. Among these products were: Perfume "Scent of Lenin."
Soap "All over Lenin's places."
Cosmetic powder "Lenin's ashes."
Triple bed for newlyweds "Lenin is always with us."
Laxative "Lenin's Testament."
Candies "Lenin in chocolate."
Ladies' bra "Lenin's Hills."
Wine "Lenin in Razliv."
Sausage "Lenin's cut."
Clock with a cuckoo; once every hour, a gate opens, Lenin appears and says, "Coo-coo!" A fountain "Lenin's jet."
A doll; it is a small figure of Lenin. If one turns a key, it starts moving, first one step back, then two steps forward, pronouncing the words, "What to do? What to do?" A tourist guidebook, "Over Lenin's places in Siberia," designed for those citizens who like telling anecdotes about Lenin.>

Sep-27-08  timhortons: I am reading now roberts payne book life and death of lenin, im on my first 100 page.

He play a lot of chess with his brother alexander, and he could play with out lookin at the board.

Jan-03-09  timhortons: lenin in his death bed tried toward-off stalin but its too late, stalin already consolidated his power.

At one point he tried to harass krupskaya blaming her of feeding lennin of political news during the time his too ill of his stroke and last of his days.Lenin dictated ideas to his secretaries putting off stalin but its not just not enough to stop stalin assuming more power.

He know the party is split off between stalin and trotsky and stalin just emerge a stronger political animal.

robert payne book is an interesting one

Jan-07-09  timhortons: had lenin live a little longer , he would have destroyed stalin politically.

but Stalin is just a perfect portrait of lenin.There you see a man who see himself in a mirror and want to break the mirror when an evil of his face confront him.

Reading your other posts, I'm sure this wasn't your intent.

Mar-22-09  timhortons: By the end of January 1918, after about 12 weeks in authority,Lenin had established his dictatorship so solidly that nothing short of external intervention could have destroyed his power.Of course by this time the germans were in a position to snuff him out without difficulty.They were rapidly advancing in all fronts,meeting little opposition.But on March 3 Lenin signed their dictated peace terms, having argued down to trotsky and other collegues, who wanted to pursue a 'no war no peace' line until the germans workers revolution broke out.Thereafter,for the rest of the war, the germans had an interest in keeping lenin going.As their foriegn minister,Admiral Paul von Hintze, put in july 1918:'The Bolsheviks are the best weapon for keeping Russia in a state of chaos, thus allowing Germany to tear as many provinces from the former Russian Empire as she wishes and to rule the rest through economic control.

For equal and opposite reasons the allies were anxious to oust Lenin and get Russia back to war.But Linen was clearly right to settle with the Germans, whos threat to him was near and immediate, rather than the aliies, who were distant and divided in there aims.

May-02-09  Dredge Rivers: This is my 666th post. It seemed appropriate to put it here!
May-02-09  MaxxLange: <Dredge Rivers> yes, it was. Lenin was a very scary person
May-05-09  Dredge Rivers: Actually, this is post # 666. One of my previous ones has mysteriously dissapeared!
Sep-07-09  timhortons: linen must have won that game against hitler.

lenin come from a chess playing family.

i read two autobiography about hitler and it didnt mention he played chess.

Dec-18-09  ReDDaWN: Most people can not accept the fact that, apart from representing certain ideologies people reflect their inner vision as well. Lenin was one of them.

@Nimh

You are the shining example of complexity of Lenin.For America, it took 1 century to get over this fact.It seems some individuals still suffer from this complexity. I suggest you to get over it. He was not feeding the idea of dictatorship unless it serves the idea of dictatorship of proletariat(major workers class). Not even under his own name. As long as class difference exists in this world there will be a conflict. It can evolve into humanism or socialism nevertheless Lenin will never die until that day comes..

Lenin was never the same after the 1918 assassination attempt that wounded him badly.

Interesting photos - the relief of Leningrad (1943), what happened to Stalin?

  perfidious: <Marmot PFL> Doubtless retouched during the Khrushchev era-very amusing, that!

The expungement of the 'renegades' Alekhine, Bogo et al from Soviet chess were small potatoes compared to what was to come.

Jun-05-14  epistle: 1924: Regla

Lenin

The mayor of the Cuban community of Regla calls everybody together. From the neighboring city of Havana has come news of the death of Lenin in the Soviet Union. The mayor issues a proclamation of mourning. The proclamations says that "the aforementioned Lenin won well-deserved sympathy among the proletarian and intellectual elements of this municipal district. Accordingly, at 5:00 p.m. Sunday next its residents will observe two minutes of silence and meditation, during which persons and vehicles will maintain absolute stillness."

At precisely five o'clock on Sunday afternoon, the mayor of Regla climbs up Fortin hill. Despite a heavy downpour, over a thousand people accompany him to observe the two minutes of silence and meditation. Afterward, the mayor plants an olive tree on top of the hill in homage to the man who was always planting the red flag over there, in the middle of the snow.
