    Adolf Hitler's drug habit revealed

    AS the father of the “master race” Adolf Hitler had to be the epitome of male virility.

    If the Third Reich was to rule the world the supreme leader needed to show his followers he was the perfect specimen of physical and mental health.

    But for a hypochondriac, manic depressive with Parkinson’s, allegedly deformed genitals and an almost non-existent sex drive, that was rather a tall order.

    The 5ft 8ins Fuhrer knew he was fighting a losing battle with his own mind, body and libido.

    So Hitler turned to drugs like cocaine and amphetamines to make him a Nazi superman, developing a habit that may have changed the course of history.

    A fascinating TV documentary screened next week reveals the full, shocking story of Hitler’s drug abuse, based on recently-discovered records and letters from his physician Dr Theodore Morell – dubbed the “Reichsmaster of injections” by Nazis

    Morell administered a cocktail of more than 80 different drugs, tonics and quack treatments from morphine and barbiturates, vitamins and probiotics to bull semen, rat poison and even oil used to clean guns.

    Say, what?! I don't know about you, but what I am reading, and have been commenting on, throughout the thread, is Hitler, WWII, what would have happened, Jews and the holocaust.

    If the forum gets shut down? Are you serious?

    That's up to you. Once you read the posters history, it's not hard to see what he's getting at.

    I don't expect a libertarian to see the bigger picture. However, if I must:

    You have a poster who thinks Obama is trying to do like Hitler did, and then the same poster who asks 'what if Hitler had been assassinated before he implemented his full agenda'? The connection is not hard to see. Unless you're a libertarian.

    I don't think the millions of horrific deaths in WW2 are a fair price for some new technology.

    Probably a good thing for the world that Hitler lost his mind from drugs or he may have listened to his generals and we would be typing in German right now.

    If I wanted to ask at what point would it be OK to assassinate a US pres in general or Obama in particular then I would have started one precisely on that subject and I wonder if you got all upset over the George Bush assassination film. Surly it was discussed in here and I bet you defended it. Now in a fit of paranoia you connect dots that are not there and have a panic attack over Obama being compared to Hitler and a subsequent post asking if Hitler should have been assassinated.

    Re: Is assasination ever called for

    I'm conflicted on this one. On the one hand, I think it COULD be useful for law enforcement, however, it's a clear violation of the targets right to a fair trial.

    As for the world stage, in peace times, no. This implies the use of forced peace, which is no peace at all. Think about it. We're not at war, but some countries leader (Iran?) says some stuff we don't like, so we have him assassinated. No thanks. Because the same can be applies to us. Bush says some things others didn't like, so they have him assassinated.

    Now during war time, assassination is a brilliant tool. We call them snipers.

    It has nothing to do with a "fair price". There were multiple attempts on his life. For whatever reason, he survived, and became a defining figure in the history of the world. A question of price has no bearing on the issue. When we need new technology, and we DID need it to put an end to that war, it spurs creativity and innovation. Hitler just happened to be one of the catalysts. If he had been assassinated, there is absolutely no rational reason to believe that the world would have been a better place. Just different players in different scenarios.
