Republicans are like the Nazis. They came for the communists and I did not speak out... They came for the socialists and I did not speak out... They came for the trade unionists and I did not speak out... They came for the Jews and I did not speak out... And then they came for me and there was no one left to speak out for me. People must remember that Hitler and his National Socialist Party were democratically elected, by Germans who were suffering from a disastrous economy who were vulnerable to Big Lie manipulation. I think the radical GOP is fueled by a dangerous mix of racism, homophobia, hatred for the poor and vulnerable, women's reproductive freedom and war mongering that is to me dangerously close to 1936.
Let's say you were a US Marine on Iwo Jima or Okinawa with the prospect of invading Japan in a few months. Would you want your president to be concerned with freedom in Poland or would you rather have the Red Army pin down several million Japanese soldiers in the Far East? Who knew if the A-bombs would work as well as they did. We could have dropped some, and the Japanese could say, "Is that all you got." Let's not forget that Nazi Germany did not surrender until a Soviet T-34 was on top of Hitler's bunker in Berlin. If you were alive in 1944, who would you have thought were the bigger fanatics, the Germans or the Japanese?
Here's another Neo-Con Republican myth about the Yalta Agreement in 1945. They say, "The USA paid a price for Yalta. Millions in Eastern Europe paid a price for Yalta." FDR went to Yalta in February, 1945 and Truman went to Potsdam in July, 1945 with one goal in mind; it was to get the USSR into the war against Japan as fast as possible.

Ronald Wilson Reagan made a big mistake by having 241 U.S. Marines used as hostages in Beirut, Lebanon in October, 1983. A bomb-laden truck, driven by a Shia Iran-sponsored terrorist drove into the U.S Marine base and killed 241 Americans. The Commander-in-Chief had given the order that the sentries protecting the base were forbidden, by formal "rules of engagement," to not have BULLETS in their rifles. A colossal blunder by Ronald Wilson Reagan and we simply left Lebanon a few months later.
