Stalin Potsdam Quote

Whenever I hear leftists deplore how Harry Truman’s evil lead to the outbreak of the cold war, I’m reminded of something Joseph Stalin said at the Potsdam conference in Berlin outside in July of 1945. A reporter asked Stalin if he was happy to be where he was (42 months earlier the sound of German artillery fire was audible within the Kremlin).  Stalin’s response was, “Czar Alexander made it to Paris.”  If anyone thinks old Uncle Joe would have been satisfied with making it to Paris, I can get you a great deal on a bridge in Brooklyn.
