Hitler wanted more territory but at the same time the empire that the sun never set on, is excused from moarlity?Do you have any grasp of basic facts?
1. Regarding Hitler’s various reassurances......
Hitler was also on record in September 1938 stating that the Sudetenlands marked the end of german territorial ambitions....
“I am thankful to Mr. Chamberlain for all his trouble and I assured him that the German people wants nothing but peace, but I also declared that I cannot go beyond the limits of our patience.
I further assured him and I repeat here that if this problem is solved, there will be no further territorial problems in Europe for Germany.”
Within 6 months the German troops invaded what was left of Czechoslovakia and 6 months after that Poland’s turn came.
2. Your assertion that Hitler “had the military wherewithal and ability to invade and subjugate Britain he didn't.”
Did he? He tried and failed. Reminder....the Battle of Britain was a defeat for Germany. Even if the Luftwaffe had achieved superiority over southern England and attempted invasion would have remained a very risky proposition.
3. “the sneaky and cowardly Usa who whilst pretending neutrality were arming the British.”
Roosevelt made no secret of his support for Britain and the fact that it was supplying weapons to them. He broadcast to the nation in his December 1940 fireside chat that America was “the Arsenal of democracy” but it was well known long before that that hundreds of American aircraft were being supplied to the British and French. Nothing sneaky about it.
Did they conquer by tapping on the door and asking to come in or kick the door off its hinges?
