Deutsches Reich never wanted "to conquer the world". The communists wanted to. DR only wanted (if "only" can be as bland as a term for colonial aspirations) to have its share of 3rd world colonies, just like all other European colonial powers until then. In regard to East Europe / Balkans / Baltic States / Poland-Ukraine - these were at each and every historical times treated as 3rd world colonies by the powers-in-being, no matter if there's Prussia, Austria, Ottoman Empire or Russia.
If Hitler was a "propagandist" and his words were not credible that doesn't mean he wanted to conquer the Moon, Mars and the inner Oort Cloud. You may believe what you want, it is however a staunch truth the fact he viewed the North-Americans and British as parts of his alleged "Master Race".
If US could have stayed neutral (I'm not saying they would or they should), Hitler's ambitions would have turned mostly against his former colleagues: Italy and Japan. Italy-Germany relationship was doomed to turn one of them into a proxy (and it wasn't Germany going to go a proxy). Japan preyed upon former European colonies and a victorious Third Reich would envisage taking them back.
It's hilarious to see "warning signs" of colonial aspirations of Germany while Britain was already "the Empire upon Sun never sets". What could Germany do which the Brits haven't done before?
Implement a European Master Race vision? Well, what do you think was British opinion on India, for instance?
More and more concentration camps? Care to type "Boer war"? Or killing the buffalo into extinction in America, full knowingly the native American-Indians depended 100 % on that? Do you think US had a non-racist vision about former African slaves, who still were treated as second-class citizens?
