If I may tho;
the 'message' of that production was that there comes a point where understanding is a hindrance and peacable intentions and caution are a danger.
Before WWII, those intentions and that isolationism and the need to not get invovled in a 'European War" ended when 'they' attacked. One could
talk about how the Nippon Empire was forced into the attack, how the US policy of embargoing their vital oil supply was ignorance and arrogance, and
what did the US expect. And that the US had bullied peopel in east asia, so why shouldn't the Japanese be able to straighten their own world out?
After all, the US is a western country, and can't really understand the Oriental mindset, its racist to think that they should. They want
generalissimos, they should be allowed to have it and expand, after all, they only threaten american hegemony in the area and trade, not america
itself. But that all ends after Pearl Harbour. They attacked. What did nazi germany have to do with it? Nothing, not directly certainly, but it was
obvious that the entire axis had to be fought against. It wasn't just some mad plan of FDR to turn the US socialist and get it involved in a
globalist-UN world takeover. And it wasn't ignoring the growing danger of the Soviet Union. But once Pearl Harbour happened, that was the end of
it, you couldn't talk about that stuff anymore, because you had to fight. The entire society got militiarized, drafts, business were mobilized for
war use, there were even rations at home, and more people died in single battles than the entire Terror War. YOu couldn't afford to say 'wait, lets
try to understand that the Nazis were dealing with a tough situation, we screwed the germans over in the Treaty Of Versailles, don't they have a
right to pull themselves together' you had to 'get in, get mean' and 'kill the bastards'. YOu couldn't say 'look we've already dropped a nuke
on the Japanese, they're defeated, but their culture, it demands that they act honourably, we can't demand unconditional surrender, it'll
effectively be whatever we want anyway', they had to be killed until they simply gave up, completely. Not partially.
The exact same situation has repeated, 'cept instead of global fascists, it islamists. Hell, look at WWI. Same thing. No one wanted to get
involved. It was a european thing, not even the business of the US.
The Europeans had allways been killing themselves, the French and Germans, its in their nature to kill each other, nothing can stop that, you can't
fight that animosity, they'lll be doing it forever. Its all history repeating. The fact that its repeating doesn't mean that we can't participate.
THe islamists, not islam tho, attacked the US. Its simple, attack back, and accept nothing but their ultimate destruction, or their complete
surrender. Whats it matter that they are guerillas or have gone commando? The nazis had werewovles
, partisans ready to attack when no one
was looking. Nazi agents were still all over germany. Was that a reason to not attack in the first place? If they had resisted, should the US have
left, dropped the Marshall plan, and let it all go back to hell???
To paraphrase a holocaust survivor, 'When someone says that they are comming to kill you, beleive them'.
