Better still watch t' Battle for Berlin', which portrays Allfather Stalin as kindly, Loving, the savior of Russia and an all round admirable good guy. Music by Shostakovich (1), too and that's equally as true a claim. And it's sight more entertaining than the Bible.

chained to his piano with a KGB thug standing over his with a cosh.

The uncanny resemblance to praise for God "Is there any time we were fighting without Stalin? Stalin is always with us", though Stalin at least makes a personal appearance coming on the clouds to shake hand with the generals (whom he will eliminate after the war) who actually did the work while he just floats in to take all the credit...and I'll swear you can hear his shoes creaking. Just to let you know he merited leather shoes, while the common people has shoes made of cardboard.

There are people with excellent English and spend their life to attack anyone who is not their own.
