Joseph Stalin talks about Kosovo and Albanians living in Yugoslavia

"In the future, too, as Marxist-Leninists, we must attack the anti-Marxist actions and views of Tito and the Yugoslav leadership, but I stress that we must not in any way interfere in their internal affairs. This would not be Marxist. The Yugoslav communists and the peoples of Yugoslavia must see to this matter, it is … Continue reading Joseph Stalin talks about Kosovo and Albanians living in Yugoslavia

“Moneylending and borrowing on rice crops was abolished, although merchants continued to ply their trade. No longer were peasants plagued by corruption, rape, theft, drunkenness and gambling. In some places peasants had voluntarily formed co-operatives of 10-30 families that raised living standards.”- F.G talks about Kampuchea and Pol Pot

"If the CPK had little holding it up but the support of the people, the U.S. had little to hold up the Lon Nol regime up but B-52s. Even his American advisors considered his regime to be a disaster. It was so corrupt and incompetent that as many as half the soldiers on its roster … Continue reading “Moneylending and borrowing on rice crops was abolished, although merchants continued to ply their trade.

“World public opinion must understand that the conflict is not a religious conflict between the Arabs and the Zionist entity as the Zionists try to make out, or as some Arab policies and media previously gave the impression.”- Saddam Hussein

"Do we want to destroy the Zionist entity as they say? Some of our brethren say so. It is in my view, however, that they do not understand international politics, because they think that the West can now destroy the Zionist entity, whereas they cannot. This is true. We do not indeed understand international politics … Continue reading “World public opinion must understand that the conflict is not a religious conflict between the Arabs and the Zionist entity as the Zionists try to make out, or as some Arab policies and media previously gave the impression.”- Saddam Hussein

“Division is unnatural, and must end in unity. As Arabs and Iraqis within the nation, we must not therefore rely on the movement of time. Instead, we must play a part in the formation process, which will occur. “- Saddam Hussein

"In our vision, the next twenty years will see new centers of power and polarization, in addition to the two existing ones, which will have a leading influence in international politics. China will be a large center of influence and polarization, and Europe, with France playing an important role, will become a pivot distinct from … Continue reading “Division is unnatural, and must end in unity.

“As Arab leftists, we fight against colonialism. We do not forget the friendly attitude taken by the Soviet Union to certain Arab questions, especially in the latest stages of our national history, but we insist on setting up our own socialist experiment. “- Ahmad Hassan al-Bakr

"The stand of the Revolution takes vis-a-vis those who opposed it by Force, does not mean that the Revolution is fighting communism as a creed. Once the Revolution broke out, the Iraqi Communist Party issued a statement calling on its members and supporters to carry arms against the Revolution, and inciting them to kill and … Continue reading “As Arab leftists, we fight against colonialism.

“Any changes in its political image should be linked to the struggle for Pan-Arab unity and objectives. We must understand that the national question should be approached with a conception of autonomy established by reasonable thinking based on faith in the people and not as a result of the abnormal conditions, which we have undergone. “- Saddam Hussein

"What it our opinion of the Kurdish national question? We will not remain silent when confronted with harmful trends. We do not share the attitude of the Communist Party member who tolerates harmful aspects of a nationalist movement although they contradict his own ideas and doctrines. If the Communist Party had been the leader of … Continue reading “Any changes in its political image should be linked to the struggle for Pan-Arab unity and objectives.

“Portugal came to our countries proclaiming it came in the service of God and in the service of civilization. Today we reply with arms in our hands: whichever God is with the Portuguese colonialists, whichever civilization the Portuguese colonialists represent, we are going to destroy them because we are going to destroy every sort of foreign domination in our countries.”- Amilcar Cabral

"In the Second World War millions of men, women and children, millions of soldiers gave their lives for an ideal, an ideal of democracy, freedom, progress and a just life for all men. Clearly, we know that the Second World War produced fundamental contradictions within the imperialist camp itself. But we also know that one … Continue reading “Portugal came to our countries proclaiming it came in the service of God and in the service of civilization.

“We know that Africa is neither French, nor British, nor American, nor Russian, that it is African. We know the objects of the West. Yesterday they divided us on the level of a tribe, clan and village. Today, with Africa liberating herself, they seek to divide us on the level of states. They want to create antagonistic blocs, satellites, and, having begun from that stage of the cold war, deepen the division in order to perpetuate their rule.”- Patrice Lumumba

"Ministers, Ladies and gentlemen, Dear comrades, The fighting Congolese people are proud and happy to receive their brothers-in-arms in their country today.
