I was aiming to expand on the "uk govt is a willing partner/patsy" (not willing and certainly not a patsy).
The Brits have learned all the lessons from History, something that the US lacks.
To me the most mischievous nation in the world is without doubt the England (distinction intended) akin to a ferret (not a lion), next would be the
US, that had to learn the ropes from the "parent" (during the fight for Independence and especially during WW2, the US intelligence did grew as an
offshoot of the British services) but I think that the Brits left out the lesson about historic responsibility and national dignity, probably even
intentional. Some of the crazy stuff the US engages in the Brits would never go along with and some other they are forced to but the interdependency
they have established, but I bet that the do a lot of eye rolling.
I think if they did go Communist/Bolshevik things would have been better to all. Russia would not have been able to extend and modernize (Stalin would
probably ended his rule, completely differently). Germany would probably return to a democracy had they lost it in the process, getting a nation out
of a economic crisis is not easy for the ruling party, and here begins the question. Would a communist Germany ally with Russia to take over Poland as
a way to exit out of the crisis (I doubt that, since the militarism that overtook Germany was a result of the ideology of the NAZIs, and the blind eye
from the rest of Europe to what was going on was due to sense of admiration from the power elite).
One thing would be assured there wouldn't have been a Spanish Civil War, the dictatorship in Portugal would probably be much shorter, with a high
probability of both to go Communist and Mussulini would probably gotten into a war with communist Germany or been overthrown sooner. Italy and Greece
would be also Communist.
All those nations would have also done a better decolonization. With time France would also start to move to Communism. The UK would slowly evolve
faster to Socialism and with time join the rest of Europe.
