Joseph Stalin's deadly railway to nowhere

Posted by orange blossom special on Fri Jun 8 18:58:29 2012

British Broadcasting Corporation

In the Russian Arctic lies buried an unfinished railway built by prisoners of Stalin's gulags. For decades no-one talked about it.

one of Joseph Stalin's cruellest and most ambitious projects - the Trans-Polar Mainline.

It was his attempt to conquer the Arctic - part of what he called his Great Plan for the Transformation of Nature.

He discovered that in Soviet Russia, nature transforms you!

And this is the guy that Putin's feverishly rehabilitating (and they use the Soviet term for it) . . .

Ain't that the truth. Then again, the wartime president was a bit enamored of them . . .

Patton was a necessary evil for his time. Look at Eisenhower. The filthny scumbag did more damage to US trailroads than he did to the Third Reich's.

his downfall was his political aspirations...which he enacted far too soon while still in the service. If he waited[like Eisenhower did]..he MIGHT have held some form of political office..
