    Evil commie Nikita Khrushchev :)

    After recent heated debates about Soviet poltical system I thought about former Soviet poltical leaders and recalled one very evil commie - Nikita Khrushchev. The one who was the participant of Caribbean crisis.

    A lot of people think he was stupid an poke fun at him because of his wild obsession with the corn, his colloquial speech, constant cursing and that incident at the meeting of the United Nations Organization when he took off his shoe and banged the table with it cursing in very funny way to express his disagree.

    Yes, he made some mistakes and said some things I don't agree with but actually I like the guy.

    After all he was the one who revealed Stalin's crimes, rehabilitated political prisoners and started soviet space program (first launch of the sputnik and first man in the space).

    He also was funny to listen to. Here are some quotes:

    “Politicians are the same all over. They promise to build bridges even when there are no rivers.”

    “The main difference for the history of the world if I had been shot rather than Kennedy is that Onassis probably wouldn't have married Mrs Khrushchev.”

    “Support by United States rulers is rather in the nature of the support that the rope gives to a hanged man.”

    “What the scientists have in their briefcases is terrifying”

    “Do you think when two representatives holding diametrically opposing views get together and shake hands, the contradictions between our systems will simply melt away? What kind of a daydream is that?”

    “We say the name of God, but that is only habit.”

    “Revolutions are not made for export.”

    “He who cannot eat horsemeat need not do so. Let him eat pork. But he who cannot eat pork, let him eat horsemeat. It's simply a question of taste.”

    “Don't you have a machine that puts food into the mouth and pushes it down?” (to Nixon)


    And that is my favourite though it's probably slightly incorrect:
    "While you're screwing around here, they've already built communism in America!" (after visiting USA)

    I like that right or wrong he always said what he thought. A rare and dangerous habbit for a politician.

    Is it possible to post the quotes above in Russian? Yes they are funny.

    Thank you,

    Here's his monument on his grave at Vagankovskoye cemetery in Moscow:

    The author is Ernst Neizvestny

    Half of it is black and the other one is white which is a symbol of his ambivalent role in Soviet history. He has accomplished many great things and made great many mistakes. I think he's the most ambiguous politic in the whole Russian history.
    Send me a PM if you need me.

    Probably in English it is, but in Russian it's called Caribbean.
    After all Cuba is in Caribbean Sea. :wink
