There are really only two valid comparison points:

1. Germany + Allies versus SU + Allies
or
2. Germany by itself versus SU by itself

In either case the SU wins.

When someone tries to construct an utterly invalid comparison of Germany + Allies versus the SU by itself, their motivations are suspect. We have seen many a fanboy try it, though. It is clear that the interests of the Western democracies were best served by helping the Soviet Union during its war with Nazi Germany. So they were going to help, no matter what. For example the USA sold weapons to the Soviet Union in the summer of 1941 which is BEFORE the first lend lease protocol. They even extended credit to the Soviet Union for those purchases.
