should germany and america pursue closer relations?

Re: ships needed for Sealion

If the germans had put every operational uboat they possessed as well as their entire navy in the channel against the royal navy in conjunction with every operational combat aircraft the luftwaffe then possessed in support of the invasion, i believe they would have put a sufficient number of men and...

Re: Hitlers Victory

when hitler first came to power, which he seized through brutality, he began to systematically dismantle the german republic and abolish civil liberties. as far as i know the rest of the world did not take him seriously and viewed him as a joke. this obviously was a disastrous first impression.

Re: Should Germany join the nuclear club?

i couldn't agree more. i do take issue at the comment regarding fearing the us. although, regrettably, i agree if the us is in the hands of the republicans and a moron like bush. of course, as will roger's said, "i'm not a member of any organized political party, i'm a democrat."

Re: Should Germany join the United States as a superpower?

it is possible by asking europe to finally shoulder their fair share. as far as RUSSIA is concerned we could still have detente if we continue to elect diplomats as well as statesmen and not idiots.

Re: Should Germany join the United States as a superpower?

i agree it can be a double standard from our government, not from the american people. the attitude here is we want peace and prosperity, we hope the rest of the world does too, but we should adopt a hands off approach. i think most americans would agree. this is an area i won't proceed any further ...

Re: Should Germany join the United States as a superpower?

it's not a threat. i don't understand your reasoning. and it's not defence one would be preoccupied with if they invaded the eu. turn of the gas = isolating russia from the rest of the world, everything. freezing all assets, stopping all trade, etc. "cut off their nose," so to speak. phylo, you have...

Re: Should Germany join the United States as a superpower?

we have gotten way off topic here. germany should quadruple her military spending and foster an attitude of self reliance for self defense. this should be duplicated by the uk, france, and italy.
