This is probably old news, but here is one of many news reports that Stalin tried to breed man-ape hybrids:

hmmmm. I'm wondering if there is any truth to this story..

God how I hate you.

A. What does dulling a persons taste and lowering their pain tolerance level have to do with apes?
B. Man is 98% similar to the ape genome. How would the desire result arise?
C. I marvel at the verification of the story... if the story had any verification or any credibility or inkling of truth.

Perhaps Stalin wanted an army of soldiers that feed on wild green onions who would pass gas so concentrated with methane that there would be no need for a chemical weapons program, and the enemy could be overcome without firing a shot.

At least a more accurate source... WIKIPEDIA!
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ilya_Ivano ... (biologist)

Basically Stalin didn't have shit to do with it.

After reading the article in Wikipedia, the first posted article is clearly sensationalist; they even doubled the actual budget that Ivanov was allocated for his West African trip. And instead of having a stroke, the first article said he fell sick from standing on a freezing railway platform.

Well...It's reminiscent of the early Cold War propaganda campaign. For e.g., the headline in the "respectable" New York Times of 12 February 1919:

DESCRIBE HORRORS UNDER RED RULE. R.E. SIMONS AND W.W. WELSH TELL SENATORS OF BRUTALITIES OF BOLSHEVIKI-STRIP WOMEN IN STREETS--PEOPLE OF EVER CLASS EXCEPT THE SCUM SUBJECTED TO VIOLENCE BY MOBS.

Americans have probably forgotten it, but other propaganda include "reports" of women being nationalized, babies being eaten (later retracted by the State Department, but still held by the JBS until the 1970s), etc. The following are other NYT headlines of 1919, when the defeat of the Allies and White Army appeared likely:

30 Dec. 1919: "Reds Seek War With America"
9 Jan. 1920: "'Official quartets' describe the Bolshevist menace in the Middle East as ominous"
11 Jan. 1920: "Allied officials and diplomats [envisage] a possible invasion of Europe"
13 Jan. 1920: "Allied diplomatic circles" fear an invasion of Persia
16 Jan. 1920: A page-one headline, eight columns wide:
"Britain Facing War With Reds, Calls Council In Paris."
"Well-informed diplomats" expect both a military invasion of Europe and a Soviet advance into Eastern and Southern Asia.
The following morning, however, we could read: "No War With Russia, Allies To Trade With Her"
7 Feb. 1920: "Reds Raising Army To Attack India"
11 Feb. 1920: "Fear That Bolsheviki Will Now Invade Japanese Territory"

Well if we don't trust media reports of the Russian Revolution...

They did manage to complete a prototype Human-Ape warrior.

It looked like this.

If this actually came from the Moscow archive I think it proves just how much complete crap is actually in there.

Very witty

If true it would only heighten my already high opinion of Stalin. However it seems to be sensationalism.

Rule # 1 of anti-communist propaganda: Say anything you want to make a communist leader look terrible, and people will believe it.

Could George W. have been a result?
