Thanks TexasBarak, but......when Hitler finally got the war he had wanted for so long, Churchill was elevated at last to be prime minister of Britain, and in that position he saved Britain and, by the way, the world....wow, what a crock of horse manure.
Thanks for bringing this brilliant essay to the attention of the Freeper community. I’ve posted a link to it on my Facebook page. Everyone should read it and reflect on the scary parallels.
The only difference between then and now is that there is no Churchill to rally us and save western civilization. The shelves in the great “Arsenal of Democracy” are bare and we lack the will to fill them even if we had the industrial capacity.
Unfortunately, this book is NOT the middle volume of the Manchester biography of Churchill. It was supposed to be, but sadly Manchester died prior to completion of the 3d volume.
I was a great fan of Manchester’s biographies and could hardly wait for the 3d volume to appear. Alas, it was not to be.
Another well-thought/written piece by OSC - He could do much good if he would go on a speaking gig about politics.
Parallslism falls apart on one basic fact.
Hitler and the Nazis had a real shot at conquering the world militarily. And came remarkably close to accomplishing it. (Though their victory would have been short-lived once America got The Bomb.)
There is absolutely, positively NO WAY Islamists are going to conquer the world militarily.
Weak kneed Europeans and Americans might roll over without a fight, and conversion/immigration could conceivably bring them to power, but they have no hope whatsoever of conquering the world against genuine opposition. Very different from the Germans.
