The following article was published this week in National Review Online about the disasterous Yalta Conference, and how it still affects us today. I have little to add to the article, save the fact that the Chinese and North Korean regimes that are major threats at this moment gained their power as a direct result of the concessions that Roosevelt insisted on making to Stalin at Yalta. Whilst Churchill directly advised Roosevelt NOT to insist that Stalin join the Allied effort in the Pacific, Roosevelt brushed off his counsel. Roosevelt, advised by the likes of Soviet spy Alger Hiss and Harry Hopkins (implicated by Soviet KGB agent Oleg Gordievsky as an agent spy "of major significance") and in ill health, allowed the Soviets to gain a foothold in Asia without ever firing a shot at the Japanese or aiding the Allied war effort in the Pacific. Sixty years hence, we're still dealing with the devastating decision in the f0rm of Red China and North Korea, and have paid a heavy price in trying to reverse that disasterous deal in the form of our war against communism in Vietnam and Cambodia during the 60's and 70's.
Churchill was right...yet again. Nostradamus should've had such a record of prescience. If only people had listened.
