Gulags are summer camps if compared to many prisons in the West today. What the US did in Vietnam was genocide. You are speaking about a food crisis (Stalin didn't eat all the food!). People had no food. It happens all the time in capitalist countries. Before the communists, people worked for over 12 hours, child were forced to labor. You are on the wrong side of history. Castro is a hero, and so are Mao, Stalin, and Kim Il Sung. They fought imperialism, inequality, and nazism with their lives.
