Important...why would Roosevelt give ANYTHING to the Soviets? We all know, so did Stalin, that Germany wanted to kill all the Slavs or enslave them into forced labor camps...thus...

Roosevelt should have said..."No, you get nothing, in fact, you give us the Ukraine or we let Germany wail on you another 4 years."

Who wanted Germany to be pushed out of the lime light so badly as to create that policy?

I don't know...it was certainly a big mistake. Roosevelt basically gave Stalin Eastern Europe on a silver platter.

Yes, well we know some close to him in the Government turned out to be Soviet Spies...were they influencers?

Roosevelt was close with Jews and had admonision against Germany...did this influence it?

Were those all factors?

Um, probably because they were our allies, as was Britain, and we needed all the help we could get not just against Germany, but Japan too.

Yeah, Stalin was an evil slimey commie who murdered millions of Ukrainians and other Soviet people. But Stalin at the time was not allied with any powers that attacked the US, and was not threatening us at the time.

It was desperate times, and the US, traditionally isolationist, was not in any position to make demands on anyone.

I disagree...Russia was a known "evil" and many Americans were crying to let Germany destroy Russia. So it's not as if we didn't have that option.

the lesser of two evils.

japan attacked the US. Japan was an ally of germany. Us declares war on Japan. Then germany declares war on the US.

So no, we did not have alot of options. especially since german U-Boats were patroling our coasts and spying on us as well, along with sinking supply ships we were sending to our ally, britian.

The Allied sacrificed Finland because of their alliance with Russia. They should have helped Finland when they were attacked by the Russians. They did help the Finnitos a little bit at the start of the war, then they promised them more help which never came. They abandon Finland in order to stay friends with Russia. Instead the Finnitos got help from Germany. But the Finns didn't give Germany their jews like other countries did during WWII. And they were kicking the Russians too. If the Allied never intended to make any ties with Russia, they would have supported Finland 100% in that war. Maybe even gone to war with Russia, or maybe not. But it would have been a completely different war... (a major understatement
) But in those times countries changed sides quickly. They could be kicking the Russians out of Finland in one moment, and then in the next be allied with Russia against Germany. I don't know. But I think the Allied should have helped Finland against the Russians...

Right.....to answer the poster's question regarding WHY? It's called politics and foreign policy......In a perfect world everyone would be happy and no one would ever fight with anyone. But life has never been so....so one has to allign oneself with other countries. That doesn't always mean all of our allies are going to be saints. We (the US) aren't exactly saints to alot of countries out there that still choose to be allied with us.

Again...it's called POLITICS and FOREIGN POLICY! Russia was a pretty massive and powerful force and being alligned with them was right at the time.

maybe we helped out the soviets to apologize for not helping in stalingrad.

or maybe it's because they lost more soldiers than all other groups combined

or it could be that they were our allies at the time, that might be a thought

It's well known that FDR was in severe decline at Yalta, whether through natural or induced causes, and that Alger Hiss largely negotiated in his stead. Could it be coincidence that Hiss was later accused of being a Soviet spy and was convicted of perjury related to the charges? What's not in dispute is that Hiss wrote the original UN charter.

www.cia.gov...

When you add to this Gen. Patton being held back until the Soviets could get to Berlin, and his later suspicious death after making statements about the intentional surrender of the east to the soviets, it seems plain to me that eastern europe was sold into slavery to further the goals of globalism.

A lot of Roosevelt's administration had communists or soviet sympathizers in it...including the Vice President before Truman.
