Well please start naming all these broken treaties so that we can properly discuss the details.
and although I agree with a few of your positions and basic logic the fact of the matter is if it wasn't for this imperialistic nation you
would be typing in German.
So i would be speaking German instead of the my current imperial hand-me-down language that is English( my second language)? Why would that have
bothered me much?
As for the notion that anyone should be 'thanking' the USA for saving the world from the crazed Germans i can but remind you that US industrialist
in tandem with European and British allies helped to finance German industry into a position where it was able to equip and man the German war machine
we came to face in the late 30's.
If we want to get right down to the dirty details we can discuss how these people were interested in using Germany ( trough Hitler) to destroy
'communist' Russia and to bring it back into the more classical imperial fold. The fact that Hitler turned the situation on it's head by somehow
managing to defeat the very potent combined armies of France and Britain should NOT be seen as evidence that Germany were widely feared or their
military acumen properly estimated.
In terms of who truly paid the price in blood and resource expenditure we should be thanking the Russians as without their massive contributions in
bleeding out the Germany armed forces no serious invasion of Europe would have been possible for years and years to come and the first nuclear weapons
( and dozens more to come) would have been used on the European mainland.
Either way there isn't a topic i have read more about than the two wars period so excuse me from using my every opportunity to jump right in.
