That appears to be the logic the National Park Service is following in placing a bust of Stalin at the national D-Day Memorial:
William McIntosh, president of the memorial in Bedford, Va., insisted "the function of this sculpture is not to honor Stalin."
According to McIntosh, it's an educational sculpture. Kids coming to the memorial will learn all about the six million dead at Stalin's hands in the Ukrainian famine of 1933.
And Stalin's forced deportation of every man, woman, and child in Chechnya to Siberia.
And the Gulag prison system.
And the thousands who died building the White Sea Canal, which led from nowhere to the arctic circle.
And the Katyn forest massacre.
And the genocide of the Volga Germans.
And the show trials of 1937.
Or maybe they won't. It's not as though Ukrainian and Chechen Americans have a powerful political lobby anyway.
