It’s this kind of thinking…

that makes you shake your head…

“…After attending the solemn event with Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk, Putin said Soviet dictator Josef Stalin ordered the atrocity as revenge for the death of Red Army soldiers in Polish prisoner of war camps in 1920. Putin said 32,000 troops under Stalin’s command had died of hunger and disease in the Polish camps.

“It is my personal opinion that Stalin felt personally responsible for this tragedy, and carried out the executions (of Poles in 1940) out of a sense of revenge,” Putin said, the RIA Novosti news agency reported…”

I imagine most people would agree more with this sentiment…

“U.S. Sen. Benjamin Cardin, who has advocated greater Russian recognition of the atrocities, said there can be no justification for the murder of innocent people.

“I think trying to rationalize the massacre in any way is unwarranted. You can’t justify that under any scenario. It was senseless and there was no just cause. Those are the facts,” Cardin, who chairs the U.S. Helsinki Commission, told The Associated Press.”

Too bad it’s the former thinking and not the latter that infects the Muslim extremist population.
