 Tr@nsit 22 -- Jacques Rupnik
In short, next to the "Red Book" of the communist utopia and the "Black Book" of the crimes committed in its name there is a place for a "Grey Book" of the histories of Central European societies under communism as both victims and sometimes accomplices, oscillating at different periods between resistance and adaptation.
It is a sign of the uprooting of communist totalitarianism from the history of the West and moves it to a chronicle of mere crimes of the Twentieth century, it is its russification, reduced to crimes against Western civilization.
In dealing with the legacies of communist dictatorship the transition to democracy in Central Europe was soon confronted with the issue of what to do with the perpetrators of repression and human rights violations before 1989 and to what extent and how to compensate the victims.

I am not sure about Bix's analysis of war crimes: categories have to be broad to encompass the variety of situations he cites, and in the end it's hard to imagine a war without war crimes.
The establishment of Manchukuo, though, did not settle the question for Chinese, and border skirmishes between Japanese forces and various Chinese forces (neighboring warlords and Communists, mostly) continued.
Pulitzer-prize winning Japanese historian Herbert Bix's long analysis of the U.S. situation in Iraq, focusing on the problem of the source of war crimes, has been posted on HNN (HNN got it from Japan Focus, which got it from ZNet).

The Communist Party of Canada (Marxist- Leninist) declares that under no circumstances can crimes against the peace be provided with a justification.

 MURDER BY COMMUNISM
However, judicial executions for crimes that internationally would be considered capital offenses, such as for murder or treason (as long as it is clear that these are not fabricated for the purpose of executing the accused, as in communist show trials), are not democide.
Communist governments have almost without exception wielded the most absolute power and their greatest killing (such as during Stalin's reign or the height of Mao's power) has taken place when they have been in their own history most totalitarian.
Their apparent precision is only due to the total for most communist governments being the summation of dozens of subtotals (as of forced labor deaths each year) and calculations (as in extrapolating scholarly estimates of executions or massacres).

A snapshot of the display in the Vietnamese Communist War Remnants Museum – formerly known as the "War Crimes Museum" – was acquired over the weekend by Jeffrey M. Epstein of Vietnam Vets for the Truth, a group opposing Kerry's campaign for the presidency.

Vietnam Vets for the Truth says it was established to organize a rally publicizing "Kerry's lies" during the "Winter Soldier" hearings in the U.S. Senate in 1971.

 Communist and post-Communist Albania - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Communist party of the Soviet Union 's in 1956, when Khrushchev denounced Stalin's crimes in his "secret speech." Hoxha defended Stalin and blamed the Titoist heresy for the troubles vexing world communism, including the disturbances in Poland and the rebellion in Hungary in 1956.
Most communist leaders were middle-class Tosks, and the party drew most of its recruits from Tosk-inhabited areas, while the Gegs, with their centuries-old tradition of opposing authority, distrusted the new Albanian rulers and their alien Marxist doctrines.
The insignificance of Albania's standing in the communist world was clearly highlighted when the emerging East European nations did not invite the Albanian party to the September 1947 founding meeting of the Cominform.

 Teflon Communism
Communists committed acts of terror in the name of a greater good, which is why such a substantial minority of people are offended by a book which condemns Marxist regimes.
Jospin's response was that he was "proud" of the presence of Communists in his government and shocked by the comparison of communism to Nazism; a group of right-wing deputies marched out of parliament as a result.
Perhaps, in fact, the continued tolerance of Communist parties and Marxist philosophy in the West is rooted in human nature, in our capacity for self-deception, in our dreams of a society without conflicts and without poverty, in our refusal to see that all of the quick roads to such a society lead to totalitarianism.

 Soyuz: The Research Network for Postsocialist Studies
Meanwhile, any real political passion for the past falls to the extreme right margins, where Communist crimes against the eternal Hungarian nation are part of an ongoing conspiracy, the evidence for which is enshrined at sites such as the ‘House of Terror’ museum enshrined by the Orban government.
Indeed, the post-election discovery that the newly-elected Socialist prime minister was a counterintelligence agent under the communist regime (and the similar revelations about other public figures, across the political spectrum, that soon followed) only underlined the ongoing relevance of these questions of historical narration and personal and national responsibility.
What is surprising is a concomitant resurgence in overt manifestations of communist nostalgia that have begun appearing in the early years of the 21st century.

 Discovery Times :: Yugoslavia: Fall of Milosevic
The most infamous figure to emerge from the collapse of communist Yugoslavia in the 1980s, Milosevic led the movement to create a unified nation of Bosnian Serbs.
The story of Milosevic's dramatic rise, and the behind-the-scenes maneuvering of world leaders to remove him from power and bring him to trial for war crimes, is told in the Discovery Times documentary Yugoslavia: Fall of Milosevic.
That, not surprisingly, led to violent ethnic clashes and ultimately to a wave of "ethnic cleansing" of Muslim and Croat civilians in Bosnia.

 Afghanistan Maoists Unite in a Single Party
The Communist Party (Maoist) of Afghanistan  faces the crucial test of defending and applying Marxism-Leninism-Maoism in a complex ideological battlefield where monstrous crimes were committed by the Soviet Union cloaked as "communists" and where Islamic fundamentalism has had a deep and pernicious influence in the society.
In this new situation, a unification process was initiated by the Communist Party of Afghanistan (a participant of RIM) and the Struggle Organisation for the Liberation of Afghanistan (Peykar), which was later joined by the Revolutionary Unity of Workers of Afghanistan.
The new communist movement in Afghanistan, inspired by the formation of RIM and the struggle of the Maoists the world over, and by summing up past experience and learning the bitter lessons of that experience, has reorganised itself, giving rise to the Communist Party (Maoist) of Afghanistan.

 Tourism in Azerbaijan
On January 22, 1990 the primary party organization of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Azerbaijan excluded Abdurahman Vezirov from CPSU and it rose the question to call him to account for the crimes perpetrated against the Azerbaijani people.
The deputy investigation commission submitted its conclusion to the Milli Shura (National Assembly) of the Supreme Council of Azerbaijan only two years after the tragedy - after the liquidation of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union and collapse of the Soviet state.
The analysis of the measures implemented by Party and state bodies, and contradictory process took place in Baku, on the eve of the 20th of January, shows that the January tragedy was the corollary of the prepared military operation.

 Colombia's Killer Networks: The Military - Paramilitary Partnership and the United States
Paramilitaries were an integral part of their counterattack on guerrillas as well as what the U.S. Yarborough team identified as "known communist proponents." 25 However, in Colombia, that came to mean both real and suspected guerrilla supporters, including government critics, trade unionists, community organizers, opposition politicians, civic leaders, and human rights activists.
One of the ways the military sought to control these political leaders was by supporting the authoritarian measures imposed by President Julio César Turbay (1978-1982), among them Decree 1923, called the "Security Statute." Decree 1923 loosely defined new crimes, like "disturbing public order," implemented press censorship, and gave police judicial powers.
Within the Colombian army, one of the main proponents of engaging the "internal enemy" of communism with these methods was Gen. Alberto Ruiz Novoa, whose cold war experience included a stint as the commander of the Colombia Battalion in Korea from 1952-1953.
