I thought the only reason we actually went to war was because Japan attacked us at Pearl Harbor. Even though it was the common talk, no one was willing to go to war over some guy burning Jewish people. And since hiding whole race-burning death camps is a bit hard, I'm sure US intel definitely knew about it. I think the US saw an opportune time like any one else would and entered when the bet was hot.
What would I do now...hard to say. In the state our country is in right now, could we really afford going up against a REAL aggressor state with equal or superior military capabilities?
Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
