HAD GERMANY & JAPAN WON IN WORLD WAR II ... AMERICA WOULD BE NONEXISTENT ... and so too would be Russia, France and Brittan. It required a massive world war to defeat the military power of these two evil nations and do so simultaneously for which without the United States all of Europe including Brittan along with Russia would today be greater Germany with China and all of Indonesia and Malaysia having become greater Japan. Though that horrific war cost some 50 million lives... the outcome was well worth the cost.

Let's start at the beginning and not the middle.

If the US hadn't allowed itself to be dragged into WWI by the British there wouldn't have been a WWII in all probability. The war would have ended in a negotiated peace and there would have been no Hitler or Lenin.

The present day mess can be traced back to that war.

And psychopaths in the government brainwashed generations of Americans into believing that our belligerence and provocations was duty,honor, and glory.

It was evil.

I don't get how GOPers haven't figured out that WW2 was foisted on this country by the Marxist filth FDR. The brainwashing was very successful and they continue to laud this evil Marxist pig's war mongering.

Just what in hell do events 70 years in the past have to do with today? Are we to bankrupt the nation just because you are nostalgic about a war you are probably to young to have lived through?

That is just plain stupid. You wish to pretend that the USA is attached to Europe and as close to Germany as France.

You are probably an illiterate and apparently ignorant about geography.

If last week's hearing for Chuck Hagel raised questions about his capacity to be secretary of defense, the show trial conducted by his inquisitors on the tribunal raised questions about the GOP.

Is the Republican Party, as currently constituted, even capable of conducting a foreign policy befitting a world power? Or has it learned nothing and forgotten nothing since George W. Bush went home and the nation rejected John McCain for Barack Obama?

Consider the great foreign issues on the front burner today.

Will the Japan-China clash over islets in the South China Sea, now involving warplanes and warships...
