    Correct. But that means nothing to the point I have been responding to.

    Since U.S military doctrine over the past decade has been that the best defense is a good offense, no, I wouldn't "defend" this country.

    If you're referring to the USSR, we had a common enemy. Any peace between us and Stalin was circumstantial, as evidenced by the immediate emergence of the Cold War after the surrender of Germany and Japan. Germany and Italy were also marxist nations during the Second World War.

    Guess Hitler shouldn't have named his own party National Socialism. Mussolini modeled his brand of fascism from socialist, and existentialist principals. He was heavily influenced by Sorel, Nietzsche, Plato, and Pareto. He was also a member of the Italian Socialist Party.

    Except I'm not "far right". Nice try, though.
