Imagine a world today where Hitler did not declare war on the United States 4 days after the attack at Pearl Harbor and where the United States alone had to face off against the Empire of Japan and wage a war but only in the Pacific. I think that war might have been ended much sooner and before we got around to building atomic weapons but how would Europe have gotten along without the entry of the United States and its Germany is the first order of business which put fighting Japan on the back burner of policy and war?
I doubt Mussolini would have declared war on the United States if Hitler did not and I doubt England would have survived another 6 months without the United States shifting to full war production and entering the war beside them. That would have been difficult to do without some fancy Washington double talk about the need to destroy all the "bad guys".
If England fell there would be no possibility of any kind of Normandy invasion and things might have gone to the nuclear dickens much later in the 1950s. Hitler short circuited an atomic war in Europe because of the completely insane advice he was given and acted on when he declared war on the United States on 11 December. On that note I cannot help but notice that Biden has decided to furnish long-range precision ATACMS to Ukraine so they can strike targets deep in Russia directly with American furnished long range missiles.
And you thought Hitler was crazy....
I've heard that Putin and his Foreign Minister offered the Tyrant of North Korea some help building and fielding inter-continental ballistic missiles, a little feat that the Norks have been having some trouble with. I wonder if they'll figure out fractional orbital bombardment.
You really gotta hand it to those State Department cretins we have running things alongside their fellow Harvard alums in the CIA. You can't get a shinier stupider bunch of nuclear war planners and profiteers if you tried.
