When it comes to the issue of anti-Semitism, I’d favor Putin’s self-interested nationalism over the PC new age one world bigotry of the EU.
That might have prevented any sort of a war between Germany and England/France. As for Russia, people I've spoken to who were living in Russia in the late 30s say it was on the edge of collapse at that time and that had Hitler simply waited ten years, he most likely could have picked up the pieces he wanted for free.
You are absolutely correct. Almost every significant problem we have currently was seeded by that mewling fraud. He has worked hand in glove with each successive failure of a president to perpetuate his NWO nightmare.
American Moms and Dads contributed (officially) 116,516 sons to the Euro socialists/communists/work averse, big government, statists in WW I.
In WW II, American moms and dads contributed (officially) 405, 399 sons to a Euro population that we know today is so self loathing and pacifistic that they would not get out of bed, put on a uniform and fight the Russians if they were marching down their streets. Most of the nutless men would hide behind their many times brave mommys.
When will we ever learn? I totally agree with Buchanan on this one subject.
But, my objection is based upon the foregoing. These people (euros), as a population, and with too few exceptions, are just SORRY and not worth our sons dying for. The hell with them! LET THE RUSSKIES have them and, god only knows, they probably don’t want them! Who WOULD want them?! 521,915 of our FINEST kids donated (largely against their will (draft) to sorry, no good, morally rotten to the core and decadent/spineless Europe is enough! If the SOB’s won’t fight next time, they can’t have my grandson!!!
I have more respect for the Vietnamese and Afghans, YES, in some cases, they were all drugged up but by and large they would stand and fight and die en masse for their pathetic beliefs but Euros won’t . In this current bloodless fracas, they are already sucking up to the Russians by failing to offer ANY resisting response whatsoever other than to surrender to Putin demands. Ukraine troops are joining the Russian Army and the Ukraine Navy is surrendering battleships to the Russkies. With 180 guys, William Travis, in his late twenties, said a final good bye to his young son and fought 5,000 Mexicans to his death. My point: There are “peoples” that historically have habitated this earth that ARE/WERE patriots and WILL fight for their country!
AND IN THE CASE OF THE US, we have sacrificed hundreds of thousands of our sons to fight for “OTHER PEOPLE”.
Bottom line: no consideration of helping these inferior and worthless people (continental Euros, not the UK) by donating more American sons should ever be given. 521,915 is way past ENOUGH!! Bring the F15 drivers home now!
And, please spare me the “isolationist” arguments. I will not even respond to them.
An interesting read of this little-unknown operation:
I'm not a Historian, but I think Winston Churchill would have agreed with you that "The Unnecessary War" was Britain's "fault," but probably not in the sense you think.
OTOH, I'm not surprised that Buchanan's fevered mind would come up with a way to blame Britain for Germany's invasion of Poland. I'll bet that, given time, he'll peg some action of the US that forced the Japanese to bomb Pearl.
I’d favor neither. The US has fought both and won; and then lost faith after succumbing to the temptations of both subdued enemies.
And Putin is very much internationalist insofar as his dream to rebuild the Soviet Empire.
The war in Bosnia was a violation of promises made to Russia by George H.W. Bush (IIRC) to wit that there would be no NATO or other western incursions into former Soviet Bloc territory.
Yugoslavia was not Soviet Bloc. It was not in the Warsaw Pact and officially non aligned. Serbia got hammered by the west for backing those Bosnian Serb dirt bags.
Sorry, still don’t agree. German armies marched because Hitler told them to. Hitler started WWII.
The abominable Treaty of Versailles more or less ensured that Hitler (or someone like him) would eventually want to restore Germany ... but that doesn’t excuse Hitler.
It was still an incursion in that direction. Take note of which way Romania, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland et al tended after that war.
It’s what happened.
Nice to see someone who has been educated and studied history.
To me that's not a statement that he necessarily agreed with the USSR....what he lamented was the loss of Russian prestige and power.
Hitler also lamented the loss of German prestige after WWI, but that didn't mean he wanted to restore the Kaiser.
I think that question would be better directed towards Buchanan. He shot down his political career by being an Adversary Firster. I think he could have made it to the White House, except for his really strange positions about America's enemies - first the Nazis and Imperial Japan, when it really sank his political career, and now the Russians, when his political career is done and his media career is all but over.
When one can't deal with Buchanan's logic, they switch the topic to Buchanan. All the foreign interests then chime in because Buchanan is for America first, last and only.
The USSR was simply the Russian Empire in the 20th century. Russian history is all connected and Putin obviously has a Czar complex.
Right; that’s why I mentioned that Putin is rebuilding the empire in his own image. Territory versus ideology, albeit there remain many similarities in ideology.
At least on the surface, the USSR tried to destroy all the remnants of Russian Nationalism, and replace it with Homo Sovieticus.
I don’t think deep down Putin was ever on board with that.
