61. Herr Field Marshall Von Rumsfeld is ignorant of history
Chamberlain knew that he was negotiating a temporary peace with Nazi Germany; the British gov't was well aware that war was coming no matter what they did to 'appease' Hitler. Britain at that time could not go toe-to-toe with Germany militarily, either in manpower or modern weaponry, and they knew it. Time was traded for a ramp-up of military production and training.

If the war would have come two years later than it did, the disaster of Dunkirk would not have happened. The British would have been able to at least reach parity in manpower and tactics.

No war= no military contracts= no huge war profits= no Republicans getting donations.
Fortunes are made in chaotic situations. Speculators HATE stable markets.


It's all about the money; always was and always will be.
