    It is not up for debate that right after Chamberlain returned from the signing with Hitler he ordered the largest military buildup the UK has ever seen. That alone is definitive proof that Chamberlain knew war was coming and that the UK had to prepare. Furthermore, anyone who thinks that the UK was ready for war at that time is kidding themselves. Too bad Rummy didn't pay attention to the lessons Chamberlain taught us. We probably could have saved billions of dollars and thousands of lives not rushing to war with a military not ready for that conflict.
    The Rise and Fall of The Third Reich is overtly partisan?

    Then we will wake up then and hopefully nuke the ****ers and be done with it.

    Right now is NOT the time to be putting US service personnel on the ground. We should be selling EVERYONE over in that ****hole the means to kill each other off. Charge ISIL full confiscatory boat for the equipment they buy, and pretend to sell their enemies weapons at full price but cut them fat discounts courtesy of ISIL. If we want people involved over there really badly congress can issue Letters of Marque and Reprisal to our PMC's and let them go do business with the Kurds and Iraqi's for a nice fee. Us as a nation stays out of the conflict. Let the Jihadi's have irony of paying for their own destruction.

    I am not really surprised. This forum leans decidedly left. I think that is why it is so much fun.

    Not with the current CnC, he has already purged Generals like Gen. Mattis who knew how to fight and win battles.

    Obama would be no different fighting ISIS than he has been with the Taliban in Afghanistan, no desire winning the war.

    Are you actually disagreeing that Chamberlain ordered a huge military build up after meeting with Hitler?

    How could they have stopped the Germans at the Maginot line to which the Germans largely avoided? How does a static defense that is avoided by the enemy useful in stopping the enemy other than to force them into another prepared defensive position (which the Allies didn't have.)?

    The Brits and French where in no condition for war. Stop lying. Seriously. Do all extreme partisans have a lying quota they have to make daily?

    Again, you are making it up as you go along. No partisanship here. I am an a conservative independent who has little use for establishment politicians in either party. And your suggestion that the author of "The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich" was a partisan is utterly hilarious. The author is dead and gone now, however in all probability he was a liberal. He was a journalist. He was in Germany most of the time WW2 was going on and he was a well respected war correspondant and historian. I suggest you read the book and perhaps avoid looking foolish in the future.
    You aren't a partisan? Are you kidding me? Even the right leaning moderators can't agree with that. Anything you say is tainted due to your obscene level of partisan behavior.

    That was Chamberlains way of admitting that the UK was caught with it's pants down around it's ankles. There was a reason the UK was not ready for war. When war broke out, they had their military spread out all over the third world taking care of their colonies. That was a price that the UK paid for centuries of imperialism.
    And you think they should have gone to war with that? Please, why?

    Yet again, you are making it up as you go along. The US military was very much ready for war. It had the troops as well as the highest technology equipment available in modern times. What the US was not ready for and did not foresee was the level of the insurgency. However that had nothing to do with battle readiness. It was a matter of how long it took to plan and carry out the surge strategy
    Wrong. The US military was geared for conventional warfare. We were not ready at all for COIN operations and it showed. Even Rumsfeld admitted we were not ready with his line "you go to war with the army you have." How can you claim we were ready for war.....yet not ready for the actual combat we saw? That logically does not make sense.

    Read Lt. Col Nagal's work. Especially considering he was there in Iraq, he was placed on the COIN think tank and reported directly to the top. No, the US was not ready and you are ignorant for saying so.

    I think the forum leans right which is why it's so much fun. Right wingers calling obama a liberal or socialist is amusing to me after watching his actions the last five plus years. At least on the economic front I'm talking about.
