    are the most important of the rightwing axis leaders.

    Well that just shows how dim you are when it comes to history.

    If you don't give him credit for the Holocaust, where does that leave all the victims?

    I don't want to hijack this thread, but you've commented on something that's been on my mind recently.

    I just finished re-reading "At Dawn We Slept" by Gordon Prange about the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor - the planning, execution, and aftermath. What I can't understand is this...

    Japan was running low on oil supplies after the United States embargo in 1940. Japan knew that if it didn't make a move to seize the oilfields in Borneo by early 1942, they wouldn't have enough oil for the Japanese Navy to operate its ships.

    How then did someone, anyone, on the planning staff for the attack not look at Hawaii and Pearl Harbor, and think "Hmmm... there aren't any oilfields in Hawaii, and if we were to destroy the American Navy's fuel supply, they'd have to go back to the west coast of America to fuel. We'd then have control of the entire Pacific!!"

    As thorough and methodical as Japan was in planning the attack, it just amazes me that they overlooked the oil supplies at Pearl.
