How about if Bularia and perhaps wester Europe established a court similar to the Nurnberg, and prosecute all member of the Communist party?! If they do that, there is a grate opportunity for Elena Bokova to get a one way ticket to Sink Sink or any Korean Labor camps. This is what she deserve people! What is wrong with the world today? The whole planet is upside down because of liberal, progresive, socialists and other idiots! Give the People Peace they desrve!
