D-Day: Would We Have the Guts to Do it Today?

By Debbie Schlussel

Sixty-six years ago today, on June 6, 1944, Allied forces landed in Nazi-occupied France and began the liberation of Europe. Our soldiers stormed Omaha Beach in Normandy. But would America have the guts, the stomach, the will to do it again, today? I’m not so sure. We’re condemning Israel for defending itself right off its own coast. And we’re doing nothing about the enemy, the new Nazis–Muslims–expanding their wide berth on our own shores.

Read this editorial, below, from Louisiana’s WBRZ News 2, and ask yourself, as I asked above, would we have the guts–the principle and moral high ground–to do this today, as America and most of the rest of the world condemns Israel for responding to enemy attacks, just miles from its shores? Also, remember that, even though it was a tactical surprise for which the Nazis were not prepared, thousands of American troops gave their lives on just this one day to begin the end of Nazi reign over Europe and the attacks of the Axis allies on American and Allied forces.

Today’s anniversary of the June 6, 1944, invasion of Normandy by Allied troops during World War II is an occasion to remember one of the high points in humanity’s long march toward liberty.

The invasion began shortly after midnight with the landing of 24,000 Allied airborne troops in France, which was occupied by Nazi Germany.

Amphibious landings began around 6:30 a.m. when 156,000 servicemen from the United States, United Kingdom, Canada and other Allied countries disembarked from more than 5,000 ships and Higgins landing craft into a wall of gunfire from German defenders.

The operation cost U.S. forces 2,499 dead in a single day, with total Allied deaths reaching 4,414.

Graves of American Soldiers Who Gave Their Lives in WII @ Normandy:

Hmmm . . . Which Religious Symbol is Missing?

The invasion was the beginning of the end of fascist tyranny across Europe.

Today, we remember those veterans among us who were on the beaches of Normandy that day.

We also remember those who never came home, and those who have died in the years since the war.

The world should never forget their valor.

AMEN. G-d Bless America and the souls of those courageous, valorous men who gave their lives at Normandy.

It was most ambitious and audacious military operation in history… by far the largest and the resolve and the determination of American and Allied soldiers broke through to liberate Hitler’s Fortress Europe and liberate a continent from the thrall of the Nazi dark night. I don’t know we would have the guts to do it today. But D-Day is an eternal reminder that freedom can only be defended by the sacrifice of those who give up their lives for it. That is as true for our generation as it was for the generation that defeated Hitler and went on to secure the world in which we now live. Freedom itself must never be taken for granted and one day Americans may need to fight again to keep it.

Let us salute all the courageous men who made the ultimate sacrifice on the beaches of Normandy for us and may G-d bless America!

THIS DATE IN HISTORY

Jun 6 1968 Senator Robert F. Kennedy dies at Good Samaritan Hospital in Los Angeles. The Democratic lawmaker had been campaigning for his party’s Presidential nomination when he was shot three times by Palestinian Sirhan Bishara Sirhan.

Bill on June 6, 2010 at 9:38 am

You ask the question would we do it again.
I have to ask the question “should” we do it again?
What did we gain from WWII?
We killed off so many indigenous Europeans that now Europe is being taken over by North Africans and Turks.
When the Muslims are the dominate force in Europe democracy will be wiped off the face of Europe.
So all those D-day deaths didn’t really stop tyranny at all.
They just changed it from Nazi tyranny to Muslim tyranny and delayed it about a 100 years.

    Actually it was NOT World War II that destroyed the heart of Western Europe, it was World War I.

    Remember that France and England are the size of one of our states and they each had MILLIONS of casualties in that War.
    You can look at history and see that France and England were very strong countries with colonies and HUGE militaries. After WWI, they were a shadow of their former selves and began a long decline.

    The horrors of WW2 were the final nail in their coffin.

Bill on June 6, 2010 at 9:49 am

    Bill, your point reveals the stark reality of American submission (yes, it is submission). US response to 9/11 was America’s submission: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9_ZoroJdVnA
    …. which POTUS/Commander-in-chief, predictabily an AWOL from National Guard duty and a Saudi puppet, wrapped in a ‘discussion’ about ‘matter-at-hand’… listen again and Bush speaks for how ‘Muslim friends’, ‘Muslims and nations’ ‘were apalled’. ‘These acts violate the fundamental tenats of the Islamic Faith’ (suddenly, Bush is a scholar of ‘The Islamic Faith’), ‘Face of terror is not the true face of Islam’ .. goes POTUS/Commander-in-chief on 9/17, from an Islamic Center…. ‘hen we think of Islam, we think of a faith that brings comfort to a billion people around the world’ (no words of comfort to those attacked and murdered yet) moving on…. ‘Muslims make an invaluable contribuyion to our country’ (those attacked and murdered made, did not make invaluable contribution ???) ‘Muslims are doctors, lawyers, law-professors, members of the military… (oh yes, one Fort Hood ‘member of the military’ comes to mind: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fort_Hood_shooting )
    Listen again and throw up……..
    Finally, for the sake of america, please don’t break this down as a Democrat v/s/ Republican issue… responsible Americans know better.

Obviously we are a deeply compromised, divided nation now.
The outrage and shock over 9/11 is over, our debt is really
unbelievable, our administration is working without rest to
transform us into a socialist state, no, we couldn’t repeat
what we were able to do in World War 2. Much less than D-Day,
we probably would have folded after Kasserine Pass. I’m no
fan of FDR, but at least he allowed the military to run the
war, to do what was necessary to win. Now we have to be PC,
read Miranda rights to those captured–are we even capturing
anyone now? Our efforts are really a farce. And now our
leaders are piling on Israel along with the rest of this rotten
world. I can’t remember ever being this ashamed of our “leaders.” It’s time to take out the trash come this November.

    Yes, by electing traitors like Billy ‘Lincoln-bedroom-for-rent’ Clinton, George ‘Islam-is-peace’ Bush and Barry ‘Driver’s-licence’for-illegals’ (not to mention illegal relatives) Obama, America has dug it’s own grave. Only way out is to boot the traitors out, November or sooner…..

    Alert on June 6, 2010 at 10:53 am

You are so correct, Debbie. I just don’t think this particular generation has the guts (it’s a kind of rank cowardice). It’s almost amusing. CBC today featured a segment on Canadians in WWII — especially at Juno Beach (aka “The Canadian beach”.) This was immediately followed by a segment (I’ve lost track on the exact topic) on bashing Israel. (that’s the CBC’s pasttime, to promote radical, terrorist Islam while bashing Israel.) But, the people at the CBC never, ever “get it.” They’re oblivious.

J.S. on June 6, 2010 at 10:51 am

Our current political leaders definitely would not have
the guts to do it. However leaders change.

That having been said I believe the more important question
is “would we recognize the need to do it”. That is a
bigger problem since if the people do not recognize the
need to do it they will never put in power those with the
guts to do it.

I_AM_ME on June 6, 2010 at 10:54 am

It looks like we’ll find out sometime in the near future. The Muslims are taking over Europe, just like the Nazis did. The Muslims are doing it more gradually, but given the way things are going, they may unfortunately succeed. Will the US do something like D-Day 2 to save European civilization? The way things have gone, probably not; if they don’t even kick Turkey out of Nato, it is a bad sign for the future.

Little Al on June 6, 2010 at 10:55 am

    Al, with a liberal immmigration system in place, without enforcement of immigration laws, politicians have sold borders, soverignity of the nation and security of loyal, tax-paying citizens. Why stop the gravy-train of votes by sealing the borders? Furthermore, no politician’s get looted, raped or murdered. It is the same foolish voter who voted these politicians to office, who gets butchered bu the gravy-train of votes, if you see the tragic irony.
    No wonder 9/11 hijackers got visas and driver’s licenses at-will, when they should have got none.

    Alert on June 6, 2010 at 11:03 am

If our war against the Islamic terrorists/dictators ends up even being as challenging as was during both World War II generally and D-Day in particular, it would have been because we didn’t defeat them when they were weaker. Of course the same is true on the Nazi evil as well, but this appeasement is even worse. At least when Chamberlain had Britain appease Hitler, it was only for a period of a few years. This appeasement has been going on for decades and longer, and our current leaders still don’t get it–or want to get it.

I don’t see Obama leading us into a D-day/like operation. We have to hope that the Republicans nominate someone who will be our next Reagan, have us elect that person, and then, if need be, we could have both the physical capability and the mental willpower to do another D-Day type operation again–or better yet, defeat them before we have to rise to that level.

JeffE on June 6, 2010 at 10:58 am

    JeffE,
    Informed and a refreshing post. what interests me is this ‘We have to hope that the Republicans nominate someone who will be our next Reagan’.
    An independent Americna patriot, who Republicans did not nominate, ran for 2008 elections. Tom Tancredo, R-CO, ran for 2008 and in my humble opinion, with Tom Tancredo, America could not go wrong. Then again, same Republican party nominated John McCain, who hired a Hispanic-outreach director (Johnny’s patriotism goes out of the window, right there) with no clue about ‘The Islam’. Republican party nominated Jorge Bush, who covered up for Islamic terror (yes, he covered up!), prosecuted border-patrol agents for doing their patriotic duty, while granting immunity to drug-dealer illegal.
    Not that Democratic party does but Republican party promises no relief for America.

    Alert on June 6, 2010 at 11:43 am

      Re: Alert @ 11:43 am.

      Thank you, Alert. I appreciate your response. Tom Tancredo appears to be a good candidiate. I searched this website to see if this is a Debbie-approved candidate and it looks like he is. Therefore, if he runs in 2012, I would vote for him. However, if either now or in the future he turns out not to be, then I won’t. BTW, both parties need to get their acts together and do some major housecleaning–Democrats more so than the Republicans–but both parties nonetheless. Hopefully this coming Novembers’ election will be a first step in that direction.

      JeffE on June 6, 2010 at 6:02 pm

That generation were hungry depression era kids. They knew what it was like to be hungry. They also appreciated freedom. Everything they had, they worked for. They heard from their parents how miserable life in the ‘old country’ was. I am not so sure what an American is today. My guess is this generation of vegetarian pot smokers will embrace an invasion. Just sit back and let it happen while they file lawsuits. Actually, I can actually see it happening…..

#1 Vato on June 6, 2010 at 11:20 am

Well we have the situation now with Ahmidinijad in Iran and the world doing nothing the result being more men will die having to deal with Iran at some point. Same situation with Hitler that Europe and FDR did not want to do anything and by the time they got involved it was much more dangerous and more people died. I do get irritated who are in the military that this has become a way of life and that they should always hope that we don’t let a sitation get out of hand that you need a stronger military response. Again my religion is a religion of life not of death.

adam on June 6, 2010 at 11:43 am

I usually agree with and enjoy most of your writings, but one thing here I did not like. Muslims are NOT the enemy! “the new Nazis–Muslims.” I’m Jewish, know plenty of Muslims, and they are not the the enemy. It’s the radical Muslims that are killing even their own that are the problem and the enemy.

But other than that… interesting topic.

It also took us (the U.S.) years and millions of deaths to react last time… :/

misha on June 6, 2010 at 11:54 am

    Misha sez:

    “I’m Jewish, know plenty of Muslims, and they are not the the enemy. It’s the radical Muslims that are killing even their own that are the problem and the enemy.”

    Misha, your Jewishness is irrelevant. If you actually read Debbie’s postings, including the comments by several here (including me), you would already know that you err. “Radical Muslims” are simply Muslims that take their canon (Koran, Hadith, Sira) seriously. The problem is with the totalitarian ideology of Islam. So, when you have a bunch of Muslims, you always have the potential for “radicalism”; all that is required is that some be “activated” by some religious authority. One can be sure that, overwhelmingly, “non-radicals” will cover for the “radicals.” If you have Muslims, you have mosques; if you have mosques, you have imams; if you have imams you had fully trained, ideologically sound, Nazis. And therefore, you have Nazi training camps scattered across the land.

    The reason America has such trouble with Islam is that even people who should know better refuse to face facts.

    No grow up.

I am a woman, a jew and an infidel and I am not willing to give my life to a “friendly neighborhood muslim” so that he can feel that he fulfilled his obligation to his blood thirsty god allah.

    Davida on June 6, 2010 at 5:06 pm

Um, why would we rescue Europe again? Where is the thanks and loyalty for all the American lives, blood and tax dollars we’ve already spent there? They laugh and chide us for the way we live our lives, but cry out for us to live up to our “duty” when they need us. There’s only one reason and one reason alone why we would ever want to come to the aid of those thankless, arrogant, selfish, lazy, idealistic Europeans and that is to stop whatever is plaguing them from spreading over to us. That’s why we did it before, and that’s why would send our precious children over there to do it again – to protect our own interests and posteriy, and frankly, they need to understand and respect that is moral reason enough and I don’t want any crap about how we do it, either.

Mz Brown on June 6, 2010 at 12:18 pm

    Thanks and loyalty? It isn’t just US soldiers who are giving their lives in Afghanistan, Iraq and all points east, you know.

    The UK were DESPERATE for help in WWII and the US involvement was both necessary and more than welcome. But we did our damndest to hold the Axis forces off until then and we did a damn good job considering the tools we had (in more ways than one). 2,700 British soldiers also died on D-Day. The US involvement only came about because of Pearl Harbour – not out of any sense of altruism towards other nations. They fought on “our” side because the Japanese were on “their” side. So rescuing Europe? Yes, you probably did. But you did it for your OWN reasons and not for the sake of rescuing Europe.

    I honour and commemorate ALL the Allied who fell that day no matter their nationality, but we ALL had – and still have – a role to play. Therefore I continue to honour ALL the Allied who continue to fall – the US forces AND the people who are fighting alongside them.

    Sorry, Debbie. I know yours is an American site, but I’m sick of the “saving Europe’s arse… sorry, ass” stuff, and the resultant denegration of my own country’s own sacrifice.

    *climbs down from soapbox*

    Alison on June 6, 2010 at 1:54 pm

      USA Citizen here, and you are so very right. Germany declared war on this country two days after Pearl Harbor. If we didn’t go over “there” to fight the war then we would have definitely been fighting them over here.

      Davida on June 6, 2010 at 5:17 pm

      I’ve heard firsthand stories of the first American fliers in England in ’42. They were the only ones in those desperate days bringing the war to Hitler’s Europe. Stories of how the shopkeepers would cheat them in the stores and the insults and mockery they received in the pubs. They shrugged it off and died and died and died. So young.

      poetcomic1 on June 6, 2010 at 6:47 pm

      Good point Alison. The British did hold the Nazis off quite bravely until the U.S. entered the War (especially the RAF).

      After that, we fought together to defeat Germany. Many of you have seen the mini-series Band of Brothers. Notice that American paratroopers are fighting with BRITISH troops in tanks in Holland. Most Americans don’t know that British paratroopers landed on D Day as well (seen in The Longest Day).
      Indeed even today, the British are one of our best allies (too bad Obama has forgotten that).

      BUT if you discount the British, the rest of Europe (especially France) is very ungrateful and unfriendly to Americans. They spend nothing on Defense and blow the money on fat pensions and Social programs for themselves. If any threat looms, they immediately cry for help from “the Yanks”. I personally am sick of it and I think we should make Europe defend themselves.

      jimmyPx on June 7, 2010 at 12:01 pm

The question isn’t whether we would have the guts to storm D-Day today. I have no doubt that we do.

The question in my mind is whether we can summon the courage we SHOULD have had in 1935 when the Nazis passed the Nuremberg Laws. The Nuremberg Laws of 1935 were antisemitic laws that Nazi Germany introduced at the annual Nuremberg rally. The Nuremberg Laws deprived Jews of German citizenship and prohibited marriage between Jews and other Germans.

Today, the Muslim world is filled with their own “Nuremberg Laws” making anti-Semitism a manifest policy of the state. Yet today, we see America as it was in the 1930′s, incapable of taking a loud moral stand and taking the essential lesson from history. That essential lesson is this: The D-Day invasion would not have been necessary had America immediately confronted manifest anti-Semitism emanating from a Germany whose leader had clear imperialist aims. Had we done this in 1935, before Germany developed the military might to confront America, the D-Day invasion would not have been necessary.

In this decade, we see President Bush hugging King Abdullah; President O’Bama bowing to him. Normal trade continues with nations that have manifest anti-Semitic policies coupled with imperialist (Jihad) aims… just like the 1930′s. Have we learned anything? (That’s a rhetorical question.)

When the Nazis re-militarized the Rhineland in 1936 in violation of the Treaty of Versailles, America did not have the courage to confront them. It was only when the threat was apparent to all Americans that we summoned the courage to storm Normandy in 1944. The question is whether we have the courage to pre-empt such a costly endeavor when the necessity is not apparent to all. THAT is the courage we need today!

JeffT on June 6, 2010 at 2:43 pm

Debbie,

I had an old friend named Robert Gee (now deceased) who was an Army Ranger during the Korean and Vietnam wars. He told me an interesting story about the war in Korea, which was the first war specifically managed by the newly created United Nations. He told me that all Allied military operations had to be pre-approved by the UN before they could be carried out. This was done (thanks, Harry Truman).

For the first two years of the war (after China entered the war), the best the allied operations could accomplish were draws and stalemates. It was as if the enemy had advance warning of the impending military operations, and planned accordingly. This was producing a bloody and costly stalemate, and the war was dragging on.

So, the army decided to test a theory and began “forgetting” to get UN pre-approval for the impending operations, or even purposely provided false information. Low and behold, the army operations began to succeed, and the troops began gaining ground on all fronts. After a few months of battlefield victories, the Chinese and Norkos were talking cease-fire! Bob said it was obvious to all that the good UN (on which both China and the Soviet Union were members) were sharing the allied war plans. The UN wanted a stalemate!

I fear that any future war involving the United States and on the scale of D-Day would be a “UN” war, and managed by UN leaders. As such, the best that could be hoped for would be a draw. Even now, I have friends in Iraq and Afghanistan who have told me that the ROE imposed on them are getting our people wounded and killed. For example, did you know that if a soldier’s gun jams in a fire-fight, and there happens to be an enemy AK-47 laying on the ground and within reach, it is illegal for our troops to use that weapon, even to save their lives? Who fights wars with one arm tied behind their backs? Trying to fight wars by “gentlemen’s rules” just gets one dead!

Thanks for all you do!

Respectfully,

Paul R. Lusk

You know, Debbie, the unfortunate fact is that Islam is a much smarter totalitarian ideology than Nazism. Like a virus, it disguises itself. Indeed, the carriers who have not yet exploded sometimes don’t even know what they carry. So, a goodly proportion (I’d say the vast majority) will spout the usual taqiyaa.

Americans assume that people are basically honest. Golly, most politicians are reelected, even though most Americans view politicians in the abstract or aggregate as untrustworthy! Imagine then how difficult it is to get Americans to understand that Islam preaches lying and jihad. Add to this that Islamic notables truly understand the levers to pull that most effectively deflect scrutiny by the non-Muslim majority. All this biz about genocide and racism and religious freedom, etc., etc.

Even Evangelical Christian leaders are cowards who, almost to a man, refuse to speak the truth. Rabbis, naturally, are at least as bad–even the Orthodox ones (where are they on Islam?).

We would fight like that again…but it would be long hard road getting there. It was the last time–FDR stayed out of Europe until after Pearl Harbor. The US did not want to go then, but realized we had to. Hitler was allowed to get away with far too much because we sat back and waited. At least we had the industrial base to arm ourselves to victory–very questionable today. Besides a full war will be nuclear and horrific beyond what the world has ever seen. Hiroshima and Nagasaki were firecrackers compared
to what hell will be unleashed.

Tha saddest thing is the same reluctance to isolate our enemies the way we should. We call them our friends! Ahmedenijad wants war just as bad as Hitler did–and to wipe out the chosen people. Look how many abetters and appeasers there are–Russia, China, France of course, and a long list of Muslim states. BHO wants to appease and please.

When Ezekiel 38-39 does break loose all hell will be unleashed. Israel will survive–by Divine deliverance. Yet the next round of hell will have begun. Half the world’s population and 2/3rds of the Jews will perish–but Christ will return and reign over the remaining repentant people who will call on His Name. That’s what Revelation, and Daniel and the prophets say will happen.

The 4 horsemen are ready to ride.

Debbie, a little info on Baton Rouge’s ABC affiliate; WBRZ-TV 2 is locally owned…quite rare in this era of corporate welfare and crony faux capitalism.

It is owned by the Manship family, who also happens to publish the Louisiana capitol’s daily newspaper, The Advocate, where you got that link to the editorial.

WBRZ was going to be called WBRA-TV for Baton Rouge Advocate. But station brass thought the calls were racy and lacy…you know BRA. By the way, leave it to Roanoke, VA’s PBS flagship to get the WBRA calls..for the Blue Ridge Mountains. But the Manships decided on the Z because it looked similar to a 2.

WBRZ’s transmitter is located in the town of Sunshine, LA

With better weapons and tactics. Total global air superiority give us better options than the industrial age wave of steel that was D-Day. The left would like to think Americans can and won’t fight. They thought they had us beat after Vietnam, then they got Obama and thought “this time we have them.”

The American spirit is bigger and more powerful than that. I once doubted it. Then I saw the US response to 911 and know it is deep inside us all.

In 1938 FDR Supported the Munich Pact. In 2010 Obama has taken it one step forward and is willing to destroy Israel who is now the “Cork in the bottle” in the war against Islamic Fascism.

The political elite in this country has convinced a sizable proportion that there is no difference between good and evil and what you feel is reality. The standard between good and evil are the Seven Noahide Laws. They are:

1) Prohibition against worshiping idols.
2) Prohibition against Blasphemy
3) Do not Murder (includes the government)
4) Forbidden Sexual Relationships and Marriages (like no gay marriages and incest to name a few. This includes government sanctions of forbidden unions)
5) Do not Steal (this includes the government)
6) Do not eat the limb of a living animal (animal cruelty)
7) Set up courts of law to enforce the about six laws.

Now take a look at who is encouraging people to break these laws. You find they want weakness and tyranny.

    Fortunately, though, the US is not a Noachide state.

Would we have the guts? WELL…

Guts is one thing, brains are another. Sorry to burst the bubble here, but exactly what did WWII accomplish other than making the world safe for communism for another 44 years?

Let’s see: The war started because a horrible dictator was taking over Europe, and ended with a different horrible dictator taking over Europe. BUT–since the cost in lives and treasure was immense, it *had* to be worth it. Right?

And let’s not forget that the supposed light at the end of the tunnel here was the UN. That worked out well, didn’t it?

Somehow, I think if we had a president other than the traitorous FDR, we would never have entered the conflict. Absent FDR, there would never have been a Pearl Harbor. And, without Pearl Harbor, we would have NEVER entered that war.

What would have been wrong watching Hitler and Stalin wipe each other out?

Red Ryder on June 7, 2010 at 9:06 am

    I dunno, Red Ryder, maybe we have an interest in a democratic, as opposed a to Nazi, Europe? Maybe Hitler et al. wouldn’t have stopped with Europe?

    You appear to have the wisdom of an academic.

    skzion on June 7, 2010 at 9:56 am

Why go to the beach when you can go to the theater like president pathetic?

jaely on June 7, 2010 at 9:49 am

skzion–

Who’s the academic? If we really had an interest in a “democratic Europe,” why did we set up Uncle Joe Stalin at Yalta?

And, oh yeah–about not stopping with Europe, Truman and company did a real fine job in controlling the Commies from taking over
China, right?

Keep drinking the Kool-Aid, my friend.

Red Ryder on June 7, 2010 at 10:47 am

    That’s a good question–Why DID ole Uncle Joe Stalin do so well at Yalta ??? Maybe because Joe Mccarthy and Richard Nixon were right and traitor Alger Hiss and his buddies were all Soviet moles. When the Soviet Union crumbled, the truth finally got out. The Rosenburgs got exactly what they deserved.

    Obviously I agree with you that Stalin was an evil horrible man who killed millions and had millions imprisoned and worked to death in the gulags. BUT Stalin did not have death camps. If you were a Jew or a group he didn’t like, you were descriminated against, but not murdered. Oh and it wasn’t just Jews that the Nazis wanted dead, it was all non-Aryans. There were plans to have HUGE death camps in Africa in order to kill all Blacks. All Slavs were labeled subhumans and were to be exterminated. Oh and when the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem’s SS division was done helping the Nazis kill the Jews, I’m sure they would be next for the ovens.

    Hitler and Stalin were two evil men yes, but I think Hitler and the Nazis were Archdemons compared to the Leninists demons.

IMO, the POTUS and Clowngress do not have the guts to do something like D-Day. However, the military personnel serving today do have what it takes to complete an invasion like Normandy. Our AssKisser-In-Chief is a pussy who would never order anything like that, even if it was an invasion of our own shores. Oh, wait a second,… we are being invaded from the South by all sorts of reprobates, terrorists, freeloaders and drug dealers. How about we put 20,000 troops on the U.S. mexican border? That’s about one soldier for every 300 yards of the 2000 mile border.

No need to determine which group was more evil. Had we stayed out of the war, Stalin would surely have won, if for no other reason than the fact that he had lots more guys, and did not care a whit how many died.

If you recall, toward the end, Hitler was conscripting 13 and 14-year-olds.

More than that, the morale in Germany was essentially zero by then, with numerous elite Nazis either trying to save their own asses, or work side deals with the allies.

The more you reflect on WWII, the more you are faced with the conclusion that the only winner was Stalin. Whatever advantage we could have wrought from it was pissed away by the likes of Truman and Marshall.

BUT–as stated earlier, since the costs were so incredibly high, this conflict had to be elevated in our history, beyond all reason.

Red Ryder on June 7, 2010 at 2:17 pm

    RR, I usually try to argue a point, unless I find I’m dealing with a Muslim or other type of liar.

    Your revisionism is absurd, friend, and reminiscent of Buchanan. If, as you assert, we didn’t care about European democracy, it is hard to understand the point of NATO. If we didn’t care about democracy, why bother to democratize Japan? Hitler’s Germany knew it was in trouble when the US joined the war. I find it hard to believe that Stalin could have defeated the Germans unaided. Even if so, the winner would have controlled Europe, consolidated, and moved on from there.

    Now the idiocy of Truman in allowing Stalin to gain power after WW2 is another matter, an idiocy including allowing Communist infiltration.

    Enough. The Kool-aid drinker is you, and I’m done with you.

    skzion on June 7, 2010 at 10:38 pm

Hey, Debbie Schlussel, don’t know where you got it, but that first picture, in color, of the solders in the water is a really, really, really great photo. I do not think I have ever seen it before.

skzion–

Oh dear, when all else fails bring in the name-calling. In answer to your questions…

We “democratized” Japan because were occupying the country. I assure you that absent Pearl Harbor, we would have had no interest in their quaint empire structure.

As to the “winner” controlling Europe. OK, so Stalin only controlled half of Europe. I guess that was worth all the US casualties. Look how much goodwill we built up in Europe.

As to “hard to understand the point of NATO”–at last, we agree on something!

Funny how you are quite willing to skip over the war’s aftermath “the idiocy of Truman…”

No revisionism here, my friend. I was a young child in the 1950s, and not a single day went by without a celebration of the great WWII. It was on TV all the time, and was treated with astonishing reverence in the schools.

Meanwhile, the public mood was negative in light of the sad fact that we won the war and lost the peace. The official hope was that all this forced patriotism would serve as an opiate, and it did in many cases.

The war was bad enough, but FDR’s reelection in 1944 was perhaps the worst single event in US history. Tragically, Dewey would have easily won, had he not been convinced to avoid mentioning that FDR knew about Pearl in advance.

Yes, he was convinced to avoid dropping this bombshell–even if MANY Americans suspected it at the time–in the interests of “national security.”

You’re smart enough to recognize government propaganda these days. Don’t you think it existed back then?

Red Ryder on June 8, 2010 at 12:00 pm

As I said, I am through with you. Please learn in the future to read more carefully and address points more precisely. Not for me, but for others you might want to engage.

skzion on June 8, 2010 at 2:11 pm

We’ll let future readers of these postings decide who addressed points more precisely. Still, I do feel for you—REALLY.

You’ve come along far enough to see how we lost the peace. With any luck, you will figure out that this was nothing more than the logical outcome of the entire business from the beginning.

Red Ryder on June 8, 2010 at 2:43 pm

I just finished reading a couple of books…one of which detailed the Nazi propaganda fed to the Middle East (by Herf.) Among his numerous points was that Rommel’s North Africa campaign (if it had been successful) would have gone on to “Palestine”, with the intention of murdering all the Jews there. That was the plan. An einsatzgruppen (an extermination unit) to follow, if Rommel had conducted a successful campaign. Fortunately, Rommel was defeated in two major engagements.
