Just look at their marching... look at their steps... their hands... the precision... like robots... that's sick!
The Germans, on the other hand, while of course completely engulfed in their mindset, still, seemed like people.
The Chinese... did not.
Theres a reason for that.
Your average Wehrmacht soldier wasnt brainwashed (at least any more than a US soldier). They were on a mission to take back what was lost in the BS
war preceeding and give France "the good news". Your average Wehrmacht Heer wanted a strong Germany again and honor.
99% of them fought with "European" ethics (no women, no kids).
I'll even go with 75% of the Waffen SS being in the same boat.
The "other" SS'? Totenkopfverbande?No. Not so much. These were the "getcha in the night" kinda guys. These were the ones with the camps.
If you notice, there were two different "Totenkopf" devices. Waffen SS had a complete skull with lower jaw. the "other" SS had no lower jaw.
The Chinese or other Asian fighters?
They do not have "European war ethic". The aren't EUROPEAN. wow:
They have an entirely different culture than we of European bloodlines. What we would see as noble, they see as weak and without honor.
Not saying Asians are evil....just different. They are damned difficult to "read" as well. Japanese are different somehow. I've never really
counted them as "Asian". They fascinate me.
The one thing I guarantee though. If (or when) we tangle with China or N. Korea, a heavy exchange of tactical nukes WILL have to be used on the
battlefield. They will send waves of humanity. We will have to respond to making this wave a display of "art glass".
I estimate 1 million dead in the first 30 minutes to an hour.
Well, remember what Stalin said.
"One death is a tragedy. A thousand deaths? A statistic."
