Well obviously the British and French were in collusion with the Commies. "This is what comes of twenty years of socialism!"

Something like that, anyway.

Greetings to both citizen Sid Guttridge and the community as a whole. Howdy Sid! Well sir, in reference to your posting of Tuesday - November 12, 2019 - 3:18am, old yours truly must also concur with your observations about the lack of REAL POLITIK plausibility of this ersatz WHAT IF creation. If anything, this whole presentation is little more than an ill disguised exercise in nativist parochialism. Well, that's my latest two Yankee cents worth on this inexorable march into Madison Square Garden on February 10, 1939 - for now anyway. As always, I would like to bid you an especially copacetic day no matter where you just might happen to find yourself on Terra Firma.

Best Regards,

Ah, you're conservative.
Wrong.

I am not a person who agrees with the premises or fights within the rules set by the left, I reject their premises and fight to win rather then 'muh respectability" from the enemies of the nation. I am a nationalist, a person who seeks to restore what was, and reinforce it with the lessons learned as to prevent the same mistakes from being repeated.

Conseartivsm conserves NOTHING expect the rate at which leftists wins, the last 60 years prove this.

World War I and II shattered the power of smug European elitists who thought they could go into other people's lands, colonize them, and exploit them for natural resources. I say good riddance.
Nah, now the honor of Neocolonialism is restored by China (especially in Africa), I guess Russia is still an exception, still stuck with a 19th century mentality. France still possesses oversea territories and protects its interests (e.g. uranium mines) in Africa as well.
And that is the joke that we now laugh it, isn`t it? They really did think that the outcome of this murder by proxy that was the world wars was somehow the cause that would spark some massive change in the unchangeable nature that is humanity.

That somehow they think themselves morally superior and that their moral view of "righting wrongs" that took the lives of tens of millions of people in war (and countless millions more via famain, flu and the horrors of communism) is somehow "better" then the system that didnt produce anything close to the same level of misery, death, and horrors, its sick beyond measure.

But now we will see wholesale horrors in Africa. China is moving in to stay now that they kicked out the European powers (that was always the long term goal, not "independence", the natives prove the useful idiots yet again) and you will see them unleash modern mechanized industrialized warfare against people who think throwing scrap metal into the shape of a tank, somehow makes it a tank....because it looks like a tank.

The PLA army that murdered around 10,000 in Tiananmen Square, The same people who killed nearly 70 Million of their own countrymen in the great leap forward are going to unleash their military might on people who cant even maintain what the first world left them and some people here think that such an outcome is so awful and will whine, cry, and protesting and think that any such outcome was anything other then the totally logical outcome of their policies based on what feels good rather than whats real and what really works..

And just watch, the Hordes of Chinese Troopers start to pillage Africa wholesale, dropping any pretense of "protecting" or "nation building" and these people will be the first to scream we send troops to fight and die in pointless wars yet again while the borders of America are left totally unguarded as they sit far from the front, morally prening and attacking anyone who refuse to die for their mentally ill worldview based on lies as the problem rather than themselves.

No, no, we are done with this. Let China do as it wishes, if they want to claim the riches of Africa for themselves, let them. why should we waste a single American life to fight to defend the wealth of other nations for no benefit of ourselves?



If France and Europe wants to reclaim their former colonies, more power to them. Only they should NEVER allow any of their subjects to ever step foot in their homelands.


You assumed that just because the date changes that human nature turns a new page, it never has. Russians understand this, as did most of the West before the Cultural Marxists spread the lie of "progress" and the end goal of "Utopia"... Russia is a super large nation, they really have no need to grab colonies, save for the land/population grab in the Ukrainian.

If Lindbergh becomes president and pursues a policy of strict neutrality (no sanctions on Japan, no lend-lease or even weapons sales to Britain), then Britain and the Soviet Union are doomed. US lend-lease saved both the Soviet Union and the British. Germany conquers the Soviet Union up to at least the Volga, and Japan takes and holds the southeast Pacific. British forces in Egypt are left stranded, and eventually the Italians and Japanese link up in the Indian Ocean.

Britain can probably hold out against invasion for several years, but without US support they probably just ask Germany for peace in November 1940 after Lindbergh is elected.
Let it not be said that Hitler did offer peace after Dunkirk, yet it was not taken up..Why might that be?
Would you please elaborate on what you find in any way unusual or unfortunate about this state of affairs?
That Hitler Offered them peace, Churchill claimed he wanted peace and yet he refused to take the offer, because we all know he didnt want peace, his own desires have been very well documented.

How is an unnecessary war that would cost millions of lives and result in the the Western World falling part decades afterwards anything other then unfortunate?

Yeah, who would have thought taking the side of the communists would result in really bad outcomes down the line when we could have just sat back, did nothing allowed a united Coalition crush the greater threat...

The more I learn of the world wars the more disgusted I get, and the more I wish that time travel was possible. Merely a handful of people..."Physically removed" (...So to speak) would clearly make the world a better, stable place.

Greetings to both citizen Sid Guttridge and the community as a whole. Howdy Sid! Well sir, in reference to your posting of Tuesday - November 12, 2019 - 3:18am, old yours truly must also concur with your observations about the lack of REAL POLITIK plausibility of this ersatz WHAT IF creation. If anything, this whole presentation is little more than an ill disguised exercise in nativist parochialism. Well, that's my latest two Yankee cents worth on this inexorable march into Madison Square Garden on February 10, 1939 - for now anyway.

Well Bob, you can claim "Nativist parochialism" all you want but we have seen the fallout of your worldview, of post war world view, of Internationalism, Neoliberalism, a total denial of basic reality if it makes us feel bad, and to be honest the costs of them are really are not outweighing the so called benefits.

Why should we pay the costs of the moral rent seeking of others? Ironically the same premise that American Hero Charles Lindbergh put forth. Having had nearly 80 years to see the course taken, its clear we took the wrong course and are seeking to getting back to ourselves, our nation, and leaving the world to its own choices.

There are so many violations of rules here that the best thing is to lock the topic. Anthonycumia1776, comments on modern politics are not allowed, and before starting any further 'What If' topics, it would be useful if you familiarised yourself with the rules of the site;
