well lets think about how rome, macedonia, mongolia, russia, the US and canada got so big.

much less people lived in all these places than in the world in 1945 and the targets were mostly far less advanced and not used to war.

less people = easier conquest

but the biggest reason is that americans are mostly cowards that hate fighting and look for the easiest way to benefit off others, that's why we put so much focus on air and sea power, on drones, missiles, on space, technology, etc.

we have always stayed at a distance from combat and rarely get into full scale wars



Lol we love to fight...

We love to fight soooo much we don't nuke people so we can..

What was the state of human rights and intelligence at that period?


Total crap lol...

Well maybe not intelligence , but 1950's America wasn't exactly known for its tolerance of different cultures lol.


Yet, it is still known as "The Greatest Generation".... why? Look at the sacrifices made by Americans in the 40's. How many of us died to free Europe?

We are but a shadow of what THEY were.

We don't nuke people because it's immoral, as for Japan..that was the demo. Japan reaped what it sowed in a sense..too bad the civillians paid for it.

Adolf, is that you ?

Did you even think about that before you asked the question ? What did you think WWII was about, Hitler wanted to rule the world. Would you really want to stoop to his level ?





Hitler wanted to racially cleanse the world and repopulate it with Germans.. not rule it.. when you rule some where the population is your people and it's your duty to protect them.

Rule it and do a better job than the last guy and the peasants are usually cool.

Actually...Hitler's plans didn't expand beyond Eurasia. He had zero intentions beyond that. He thought the western world was on his side since they actually were funding him.

Fun history fact.

But because we don't, and let everyone else have them. Doesn't that pretty much ensure sooner or later either we or someone else elects a Hitler??

Have we evolved that much in 80 years?

Couldn't get it right for the last 20 millinia but the last 80 years . We got this.


lol I'm not so sure. I really hope so though.

Hitler is dead, and even if the conspirators are right and he's living somewhere in South America, he's umm...yet?

America DID indeed join those silly Europeans, and the Russians, and Germany lost

My grandparents survived WWI, the Great Depression, and WWII. We are of Scottish heritage, and we survive. My grandparents were far more hardy, and survived crap that we cannot understand today.

It was assuming Hitler won ? Or at least that is what I thought we were on.


It was if Hitler won the war , would he have come for the America's and Africa.

You said he had no plans.


I said, yet.

Had Hitler won there would be Germany and the USA. The US was actually a big silent proponent of Hitler's Germany, even during WW2.

The US was building a massive naval military for just that reason.
