Keep in mind one of the reasons Hitler was developing nuclear weapons and long range bombers was in hopes of beating the US to the technology so it could be used on them. He knew that bringing a ground war wouldn't work, while total annihilation of key cities and infrastructure would.

???? U-Boats were commerce raiders, not shore bombardment vessels. Yes, they had guns but those were for attacking merchantmen.

Conventional wisdom says no one has ever attacked the U.S. because it would take too much manpower, money, etc. for an enemy to bring a war here. I, however, have another theory, as follows:
Hitler was financed throughout the war by wealthy American elite such as Averell Harriman and G.W. Bush's grandfather, Prescott Bush. In fact, they even helped to develop some of the Nazi policies. So...why would Hitler attack the golden goose that financed him? I don't have time to post sources, but any decent book on the Bush family will tell you this. I don't mean to sound like it was only the Bushes, there were others, too, just can't think of their names right now, but Prescott Bush, working for Averell Harriman, these were 2 key players.
