On November 4, 1956 Soviet forces launched an all out attack on the capital. More than 200 thousand Soviet troops streamed into the country to put down the uprising. The badly outgunned and outnumbered rebel forces were no match to the invading Soviet forces. But even knowing that there was no chance of winning the resistance was fierce causing serious casualties to the invading forces.

In the wake of the invasion, communist criminals and other monsters in human form came to power and launched a brutal, Stalinist style revenge campaign against those suspected of taking part in the uprising. There was no mercy even for children. In the following show trials hundreds of people were sentenced to death on fabricated charges and thousands of them thrown into jail.

None of those communist criminals were ever brought to justice. The descendants and spiritual heirs of those communists today occupy high positions, the justice system is infested with them and they still continue seeking revenge on anyone believes in national renewal.
