For the first time, U.S. and British troops will participate in Moscow's Victory Day celebrations, marking the 65th anniversary of the defeat of Nazi Germany. But if Moscow Mayor Yuri Luzhkov has his way, they may see an old familiar face around town when they get there: Posters of Josef Stalin may be put up in Moscow for the first time in decades as part of the May 9 observance of Victory Day. And they will be marching past the tomb of Lenin!!

Why not? A communist traitor mole is POTUS.
Pull the plug on Lenin’s tomb. Lenin’s carbon footprint is too high.
The Ballad of Lenin’s Tomb by Robert Service
They closed the Tomb, and then they threw it open as before.
And there was Lenin, stiff and still, a symbol and a sign,
And rancid races come to thrill and wonder at his Shrine;
And hold the thought: if Lenin rot the Soviets will decay;
And there he sleeps and calm he keeps his watch and ward for aye.
Yet if you pass that frame of glass, peer closely at his phiz,
So stern and firm it mocks the worm, it looks like wax . . . and is.
They tell you he’s a mummy - don’t you make that bright mistake:
I tell you - he’s a dummy; aye, a fiction and a fake.
This eye beheld the bloody bomb that bashed him on the bean.
I heard the crash, I saw the flash, yet . . . there he lies serene.
And by the roar that rocked the Tomb I ask: how could that be?
But if you doubt that deed of doom, just go yourself and see.
You think I’m mad, or drunk, or both . . . Well, I don’t care a damn:
I tell you this: their Lenin is a waxen, show-case SHAM.
I am a Robert Service fan, and never came across this one ;-))
I’ve seen the devil Lenin several times; more as a freak curiosity of history than out of respect (there is now a pub in the heart of St. Petersburg named “F-— Lenin”). He is a nasty-looking little man who looks like a midget version of Jim Arness in The Thing. I wonder if they will “honor” Stalin, who killed an estimated 20 to 40 million Russians, starved 9 million Ukrainians and who planned the mass murder of Russian Jews (in supposed “retaliation” for the ridiculous “Jewish Doctors’ Plot”) in 1953 until he was probably poisoned by the other members of his criminal ruling circle.
Then let that SOB go to Moscow & march. NOT our military—NO NOT NO BUT HELL NO!!!
International Communist Day is May 1st--what will the Antichrist in the WH do to celebrate? I'm afraid to think of that. Declare us the United States of Soviet Amerika?
Generals should refuse his order for any participation in Moskow whatsoever.
Obama’s brown-shirts had better learn the goosestep if they plan to attend this event.
We marched past posters of Adolf Hitler and Saddam Hussein.
Way to look at it.
Obama will love it if they march past pics of a dictator.
