The enemy of my enemy is not my friend, and the lesser of two evils is still (in my opinion) evil. Tito wasn't nearly as evil as his archnemesis Stalin, but he was still a tyrant and a sociopath.

But Stalin was an atheist though, and he murdered millions in the name of atheism. So therefore he wasn't evil.

Religious people are the true evil ones(at least according to PPR). :roll:

Of course. Who cares about the 43 million people Stalin killed or the fact that the USSR for a long time banned the teaching of genetics, the Big Bang, Kelvin's theories and quantum physics? :P

The enemy of my enemy is my friend only when he is attacking my enemy.

Stalin killed more people than the Nazis could ever dream of, and they were obsessed with murdering those super-evil religious people too.(jews, christians, etc)

I have a few times considered the enemy of my enemy to be my friend based on that virtue alone. :twisted:

Root for the weaker one to win, since it will cost them more to defeat the stronger one.

I agree, let me add the the ends does not justify the means either. Evil is evil.
