Here we go again BMW4VW. We agree that the German war machine was destroyed not by the Normandy, but already was pretty much a wasted force already before that. By then they had already buried 2M of their finest in the Russian steppes.



But merely the fact that US kept both UK and Russia afloat destroyed Hitler. He could not force UK into the peace and thus had to face war on two fronts (or three, counting the North Africa). My prediction is that without US intervention in Europe England would have been isolated - and it would have been an extremely lengthy struggle between the Germans and Russians.



Had the Russians won, well, you guys would not write too many articles about BMW, Aprilia, Moto Guzzi today.

Homeland Security was created out of nothingness into an already crowded intelligence bureaucracy. The entire department is just a giant hunk of cost.

You are right. The last three I took for granted that everyone knew about, though.

Hey cruiz, the Russians DID win. If the US hadn't proped the Soviets up BOTH Hitler's and Stalin's regimes would have wound up shattered after WW2. Perhaps that would have spared Eastern Europe and Asia from the spread of the kind of totalitarian communism that the Soviets exported after the war.

So WTF does Alan Greenspan's warning have to do with the Viet Nam debacle?

Default The Vietnam connection with fiscal policy.

Most econonics point to the Gulf of Tokin resolution as the start of the whole massive budget deficit thing..In my economics classes folks said this was the major cause for inflation and record interest rates during the 70s... W is repeating history. But who ever gets elected in 2008 will get the blame... like Carter...

Yes the Russians won – and turned all the continent communist all the way up to the line where they met the gringos. Had the imperialist swine not been there the russkis would have gone all the way to Gibraltar.



The worse case, if possible, would have been had the nazis won (they could very well have, without the US intervention).



The whole Europe would still be Nazi. Their economical model was much more functional than that of the Russians after all. By now they would have put some 100M people into the ovens.
