countries to go get his victims.

gs> I'm sure the Finns, Poles, Latvians, Lithuanians, Estonians, Czechs and
Slovaks, Germans, Bulgarians, Romanians, Serbs, Croats, Bosnians, Hungar-
ians and others would disagree.

rh> Well, we're picking nits I think. No doubt Stalin was as God-awful as
they come. But he didn't set out to exterminate the Latvians, only his
"political" opponents.
Not much difference there I suppose.

Not in the final analysis. He did try to starve as many Ukrainians as pos-
sible, and he had no problem with outright slaughter of non-Russian ethnic
groups inside the USSR. But, as I think you originally stated, he found
lots of people to kill domestically (and thus keep it better-hidden, so far),
whereas Hitler went abroad to get his victims.
