("Every nation has the government that it deserves." - Joseph de Maistre (1753-1821))
Former foreign minister Ulrich von Hassell made an interesting entry in his diary today in reference to the possibility of an invasion of the Soviet Union.
Hassell wrote that an invasion of Russia would result in, "(1) the cutting off of imports from Russia, since the Ukraine will be useful only after a long time; (2) a new and unprecedented strain on war material and energies; (3) complete encirclement, deliberately arranged"
He is pretty well connected for a man who was "retired" back in 1938. Of course he has been working on getting the support of generals and leaders against Hitler for a while now and will continue to do so. Many will recognize his name down the road here when we discuss Valkyrie.
