Victor Davis Hanson pwns Patrick J. Buchanan. Long read, but interesting in that it details some ways Brigadiers tend to argue.

While VDH does not mention it - and neither does PJB - but I believe the disarmement treaties of the 20's and 30's played a huge part in bringing on WW II. Countries such as Germany, Italy, and Japan disregarded the treaties and rebuilt/built up their militaries while countries such as the US and GB more or less kept to them.

I read The Rise and Fall of the Third Riech by William Manchester - a fantastic read - three times. The Nazis basically started their Final Solution as soon as they got into power. From Wikepedia -

In 1933, the Dachau concentration camp was built by the Nazis.. It became the prototype for all other camps. During its operation, 190,591 prisoners died or were exterminated.

Also, Manchester relates that before the showers and ovens, the Nazis put their prisoners in large, closed trucks where the car exhaust would slowly kill them. This proved inefficient and thus the creation of the showers and ovens.

At one time I liked PJB but he showed his true colors years ago.
