  2. Goof luck. I'm due in 17.11.2020. (You don't want to know.)😬 -- Leo
  3. There was no intent on the Japanese side to compromise. The Japanese insisted that they should be allowed to keep what they had conquered. As you write, FDR firmly stated that there was no way he would lift the embargoes until the Japanese relinquished their occupation of China, Manchuria included. Are you suggesting that the Allies should have allowed the Japanese to keep what they had forcibly taken? Never happen. So, the raw material extreme shortages would not go away. And those were in the British and Dutch colonies. No way the Japanese were going to abandon their plans for becoming a wor
  4. Nonsense. The Japanese were in the process of conquering China and South East Asia, and a neutral US stance would not have changed that. Furthermore, Japan would certainly have invaded Malaya, British Borneo, the NEI (modern Indonesia) for the resources they desperately needed. In any event, the U.S.-British Staff Conference (ABC-1) early 1941 committed the USA to entering the war on the Allied side if the Japanese entered the war by invading the British and Dutch colonies in SE Asia. -- Leo

  6. "If it hurts, it's good for you." (Old army saying.)
  7. Normally, I would agree with you. But these scumbags were certainly not "‘fighters against communism’ as I would understand it. That degrades those people who were really fighting communism everywhere and suffered for it as a consequence. -- Leo
  8. Possibly a maintenance issue? Here's a Leopard starting indoors. -- Leo
  9. He is the hub on the wheel. I cant see him going without the whole wheel falling to bits. I struggle to think of a dictator that ever left power peacefully. Well other than perhaps Mugabe, and that had the benefit of the Army backing his removal. Franco? Well, OK, he died in office — peacefully. -- Leo
  10. And the PKK is not a terrorist organization?

  12. I cannot post on YouTube for some strange reason. Anyway ... Fifty percent of Landsverk was owned by a German holding company (Gutehoffnungshütte Aktienverein für Bergbau und Hüttenbereich Oberhausen = GHH) since 1920. Agree with the general relief at the missing "music". -- Leo
  13. Octoberfest has already been cancelled.
  14. Yes, it would have been on the 8th, not the 7th, otherwise no surprise and no surprise equals failure on the 7th. So what of "Nagumo's fleet" would be firing? Two fast battleships and two heavy cruisers. Those were unlikely to withstand the fire that would return at them, from the coastal artillery, which was essentially fully manned and in place by noon on the 7th...as were the beach defenses. I'm not sure why so many seem unaware that the reason the Army was "standing down" the morning of 7 December is because they had been in the field, occupying their planned defenses, for the previous nin
  15. Isn't it great when someone expresses exactly just what you think but haven't been able to put into words! -- Leo
  16. I'll accept your review regarding the plot / historical accuracy, but there does look to be lots of uniform and equipment eye-candy. -- Leo
  17. Consider this: Will you be able to enter the country? And if so, will they let you back into the EU afterwards? -- Leo
