We on the left are frequently accused of being communists but I don't know any communists. I do believe there is a role for government in healthcare education and the welfare of the people. That is no

There is a rise in the number of people that espouse Marxism lately.   Mostly poor people that are jealous of others and want to get something for just existing but it is definitely a growing movement

So you agree that capitalism is superior to communism and socialism.  Weird how that works, isn't it?   Capitalism knows exactly how many hotdogs to produce, and communism just makes hotdogs until the

Well yes, except for the fact that liberal and communist countries would have a hard time leaving Nazi germany alone.

 

Hitler himself was surprised that the uk declared war. He knew, and was right, that the average brit disliked the ussr more than germany. 

 

But he didn't know how controlled the uk government really was.

 

So all of that stuff about  invading Poland, France, Russia, etc... that's something that the rest of the world had no right to be upset about?

Hitler was an idiot if he was surprised.  There was a mutual defense pact in which France and the UK promised to defend Poland. It was not a secret, it was common knowledge. Hitler had no reason to attack and invade Poland.

he never would have invaded france if france didnt declare war.

 

having a 'right' to get upset about things doesnt even mean anything. Thats an empty statement. why didnt the world declare war on the US when we invaded iraq? thats also a country invading a country

Pretty sure the world didn't declare war on the US because they didn't have any treaties with Iraq that would have obligated them to.

Germany lost Alsace-Lorraine in WWI and Hitler wanted it back, so, you are wrong. The UK dominated the oceans and Hitler did not like that, either.

 

The world did not defend Saddam because Saddam was a warmongering asshole who had no friends.

Hitler would have wanted north tyrolia back also, a historically german area...but it belonged to italy. 

 

Hitler was a rational and pragmatic person. He said exactly what territory he intended to conquer and he never wanted war with the uk or with france.

There's a reason people make treaties. The uk must have know, of course, that hitler was going to invade poland, so by making this pact with poland, they were effectively already declaring war on germany. 

 

Not that they would have to honor their pact....because duh...they didn't when the ussr invaded poland.

 

If this was all about treaties, the uk should have declared war on the ussr as well.

Actually, the treaty said that they WOULDN'T interfere with USSR/Poland conflicts. I am not completely sure why, but it was in the treaty. I looked it up.

 

However the bottom line is that I doubt that Hitler didn't know what would happen when he invaded Poland. The US also knew what would happen when they invaded Iraq.

No, I don't think the us had any clue what they were doing when they invaded iraq.

 

Just following orders.
