There have been suspicions about this for many years.
This adds further details that I haven’t heard before.
It wouldn’t be too surprising. Roosevelt was surrounded by Communists, and was virtually a Communist himself. And although Harry Truman seems to be viewed more sympathetically by conservatives now than he was at the time, he was responsible for giving China to the Communists.
Patton, of course, wanted to take Berlin for the western allies, before the Russians got there, but he was not permitted to do it. Roosevelt had agreed to hand over Eastern Europe to good old Uncle Joe, as he was commonly called during the war.
Exactly, Roosevelt had no problem with communists nor communism. He was always busy trying to figure out how to incorporate its principles into our representative republic.
Truman didn’t give China away. Chaing Kai-shek did.
he was responsible for giving China to the Communists.
Right. And the massive battlefield incompetence, the corruption, and the utter social decay of “Republican” China and Cash-My-Check (Chaing Kai-Shek) had nothing to do with it.
Please spare us.
Patton also wanted to cut off the "bulge", effectively surrounding the German troops in the salient. This would have saved countless lives on both sides, and may have ended the war more quickly. (On the down side, it would have saddled the Allies with the logistics of dealing with a lot of prisoners).
I recall he was alleged to have made comments to the effect of 'Let's fight the b@stards now, while we have the stuff over here.', referring to the Russians.
