I think we actually owe our thanks to Stalin and more than 20 million russians who gave their lives, the relevance of an american mother escapes me completely. In the words of Churchill himself "the russians ripped the guts out of the german army"

Blenheim palace serves to remind me that our democracy is a sham and the same small bunch of wealthy, ruthlessly greedy families have been playing at politics in westminster for centuries

Stalin was actually very busy moving armaments factories behind the Urals, out of reach of the invaders he knew were coming. Stalin had many reasons not to trust Churchill or anyone else in the west as Britain, France and the USA had bankrolled hitlers nazis since long before they were elected and consistently supported them right up until they had no choice but war. Stalin knew the west was using Germany for a anti-communist crusade and it was no secret that Hitler intended to invade Russia, he wrote about it in his book 'mein kampf' The facts dont make a nice story about goodies and baddies but they are no less true for that.
