After all, we allied ourselves with "Uncle Joe" during WW2. It is an uncomfortable reality that he has a greater genocide success rate than the Nazi Regime. We kinda have the same problem with the good Chairman Mao... we supported the communist Chinese as well.
Another uncomfortable fact, we never defeated either of them. We drew to a stalemate with North Korea, we did not support Hungary in 1956 or the Czechs in 1968, we lost to North Vietnam, Fidel Castro is about to outlive another US president...
Its a lot cleaner to focus on the Nazi regime, the good war, the war we won, etc... its a good guy / bad guy story. Plus they had cool uniforms and awesome equipment... don't forget the diabolical accent and the Hollywood effect.
