    Ralph BernhardPred 36 minutami

    The advocacy for "total war", more "total" than one can imagine, counts for all... The intended complete destruction of Germany as a "power", and removal of ethnic Germans from Eastern Europe turned out to be a massive "shot in the own foot" for the West. *The 12 million Germans which were expelled from Eastern Europe, actually protected the West, and by extension, also the British Empire.* By their acquiescence to removing them as a "sphere of influence", London no longer had the leverage to enforce treaties, or protect own interests. Really as simple as that... The big picture... *And of all the "big pictures", this is the biggest of all...* The worst choice of all was ignoring the reality of how Europe had been "set up" to protect the British Empire. The British Empire was actually *protected in Europe* by uniquely "balancing powers" on the continent. For more than 100 years, "balancing powers" on the continent, kept these powers opposing each other, unable to divert military or economic resources to affront the status of the British Empire as the nr.1 in the world... According to the logic of this policy, completely ruining a power on the continent, would lead to an imbalance, which could then be directed at the British Empire... *Therefore, totally destroying Germany was neither wise nor in GB 's interests.* Concerning WW2. Firstly, a 100% collapse of Germany as a power...was a dream condition for communism (Moscow) and US corporatism (Washington D.C.). After WW2, there was no strong Central Europe to "balance out" the rise of communism (Moscow). France broken, still angry about Mers el Kebir and had slipped under Washington's wings... Germany = alles kaputt Eastern Europe = overrun by the commies... GB was no longer the boss. There was nothing left to "balance" with... *"In the practical art of war, the best thing of all is to take the enemy's country whole and intact; to shatter and destroy it is not so good."* Sun Tzu, The Art of War That's just how it goes if the eternal "balancing" games on the continent by the alpha go south. Washington got tired of bailing GB out, and decided to become the "balancer of powers" in Europe/the world herself. An entirely and easily avoidable WW1, lead to a (sadly) unavoidable WW2 which although it was declared wisely, was implemented disastrously...
