Arnold Schwarzenegger stretched the truth when he gave his talk at the republican national Convention this week. The tanks he saw and scared him as a child were in all likelihood British not Russian since he lived in an area of Austria occupied by Great Britain after World War II. As to his leaving a socialist Austria in 1968, the Austrian chancellors between 1945 and 1970 were conservatives. When he left the Austrian government was run by a coalition government whose leader was Josef Klaus, a staunch Roman Catholic and a vocal critic of communists and socialists. Of course, the story Schwarzenegger said made sense in Hollywood and also in politics which is becoming more and more cinematic.
