Forcible Repatriation after WWII

Dear Letters to Editor:

Peter Worthington (Toronto Sun, July 13, 1999) must be commended for supporting the crusade of Nikolai Tolstoy to have the British government apologize for the forcible repatriation of refugees to the tender mercies of Stalin and Tito immediately after WWII. This shameful policy hatched by Churchill, Roosevelt and Stalin in Yalta was, indeed, a war crime, par excellence.

Perhaps Tony Blair could also apologize for the indiscriminate bombing of civilian targets carried out by Butcher-Bomber Harris, which resulted in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of German civilians and refugees. Removal of the statue of Mr. Harris, which was shamelessly erected in his honour in London several years ago, would be an appropriate place to start.
