    That's a very simple problem to solve: Just don't look at it.

    You're welcome.

    I don't think you can accurately predict what would happened had Russia not been in the equation. Had Germany not went after Russia, which would have kept Russia from going to war as they were for the most part happy to stay at peace with Germany, most of Germany's military power would have been focused on fortifying Western Europe and then taking Great Britain. Or at least rendering them combat ineffective. There is no indication that Stalin would have attacked Germany had Operation Barbarossa not been launched.

    A big factor in the Allied success in Western Europe was how much German men and material had to be diverted east to deal with Russia. Hitler sealed his fate when he attacked Russia. It's quite possible that Hitler would have been able to develop atomic weapons and used them had we not been able to end the war with Germany when we did. And there is a good chance we wouldn't have without Russian involvement. If Hitler gets atomic bombs and flattens Great Britain the entire conflict goes differently.

    Germany and Russia had a non-aggression pact that was also aimed at restoring central Europe to pre-World War 1 lines of control. Hitlers ideology towards the east is what did Germany in if you ask me.
    That bolded part sounds stupid. Let me clarify. There was no real outward indication that Germany would have actually attacked Russia, nor Russia Germany. Mainly because of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact. From all appearances Germany and Russia and a mutually beneficial situation in hand. Hitler obviously changed all that with Barbarossa.

    This is actually a good point. It's funny how little things (comparatively speaking) can get so many people hot and bothered that they waste so much time and negative energy on it. Yet when it comes to truly disturbing acts by members of our armed forces you really don't see a lot of fanfare. A lot of a mix of outrage and disgust, and then some apologetics for sure. A lot of "war changes a person" or "you don't know what it's like over there" and a melt down of vitriol and ad hom.

    How stuff like this actually provokes such outrage is puzzling. Again, it's obviously a joke made in bad taste...someone thinking they are doing something funny in front of a camera. And all of sudden the mob wants her head.

    Crazy days we're livin' bro.

    Correct. And, when I said I could care less about it, four or five of you had to put in your two cents, evoking everything from the revolutionary war to stopping Hitler.

    Funny no one defended Vietnam. But, I digress.

    Uh-huh. Well, I think she has a sexy tongue and has further sensitized the issue of the lost soldiers to this level of us as civilians talking about it.

    Silly point of view. It's what the fabric represents - not the piece of cloth. But then you knew that, didn't you?

    Look, you hate your country, you hate the military, and you are totally ignorant of U.S. and World history. We get it.

    Hitler was not a choirboy. We weren't so much allied with Stalin as we were fighting a common enemy. There were no joint U.S./Soviet military actions. Something you would know if you had even a high school knowledge of the history of the Second World War.

    I love the country, believe the military is overused, and probably know a lot more about "world" history than you do about the history of your own name.
