"Stalin! The Aral Sea is drying up." "But we have cotton." "Yeah, but we lost the Aral Sea fisheries." "But we have cotton." "The land left behind is all salty and worthless." "But we have cotton." "Also, there's old toxic waste residue." "But we have cotton." "The wind kicks up _enormous_ toxic dust storms, which endanger the lives of everyone living nearby!" "But we have cotton." "...Including the cotton, sir." "...Shit."

California has done a similar thing to what is called The Salton Sea. Not exactly the same, as the Salton is not naturally fed by a river on a continual basis. But, nonetheless it was at one time not long ago one of the largest inland bodies of water in the country and the largest in the state. As it is drying up the health hazards in the surrounding areas have gotten far far worse.

How is this anything like the cobra effect? They never intended to save the lake in the first place. What a weird and incorrect attempt at making a comparison.

i inadvertently killed off the largest koi pond in my neighborhood by constantly masturbating into it. it was my neighbor and we didn't have fences, the koi pond was under some trees out in the back so no one ever saw i was there in the dark at night. i would sneak over there after the sun went down and jack off about stuff like the cheerleaders at school and sometimes the cute gay boy in my computer lab, i was always taught that being gay was bad but one time he kissed me on the lips in a locker room after school and it gave me a really guilty boner. i spent the next 10 years or so pretending like i wasn't gay at all, but even after i got married i would start looking a porn in the bathroom while pooping to get away from my kids and after i started masturbating on the toilet i would start to look up stuff like "gay love making" and i would get soooooo hard and have extreme orgasms to gays kissing while having sex that i would forget about the time i was in the bathroom taking a pretend shit until my fat wife would bang on the door and say "is your colitis acting up again, are you okay, i need to shit too". it really ruined the moment.

If there’s ever a problem with the Soviet Union we blame Stalin. The Germans are invading; blame Stalin. The Aral Sea is drying up; blame Stalin. There are disputes among ethnicities in the now independent countries; blame Stalin!

I may sound stupid here. But please if anyone can explain? They diverted water from river to canals and then canals ended up putting water back in the Lakes?!?! If so then water should go back to canals right? If not the water from canal ended up going where?? Ps: Of course not all water given to cotton ?!?!

Ummm, there was no such thing as satellites in the 1960's so how do you explain 1:37 to 1:47 in the video???? I'm sure the lake dried up for whatever reasons, BUT YOU CANNOT CREATE FAKE FACTS TO MAKE YOUR NARRATIVE BRO!!!! FAKE FAKE FAKE CHANNEL! Everyone block this channel!!!!

When telling a story use the truth. Stalin had zero good intentions for his slaves, I mean people. He did what he did for control and to benefit the few over the many. It's the greatest lie of socialism/communism. Essentially even nature is not safe from such tyrants. Today the freaks build nuclear plants on our largest bodies of water.
