1 The Germans needed other thing, a lot of other things to invade Britain : more oil would not help them and less oil would not make Sea Lion impossiblenota wrote: ↑01 Mar 2020 23:351 oil is oil no matter where it is from they had sufficient oil to invade england in 1940 an excess NO but enoughljadw wrote: ↑01 Mar 2020 20:371 (oil from Russia ) is much exaggerated :its importance was only marginalnota wrote: ↑01 Mar 2020 15:27oil in 1940 was coming from russia to the euro axis nations
japan was able to buy world market oil inc from the USA and other markets
once they jump in to the war that will change quickly
but a quick knock out of england will free up mideastern and DEI oil even if the USA cuts them off
likely a near empty axis reserves short term but war is risk no risk no win
2(Japanese oil imports from the US ) : this stopped already before PH = in July 1941
3 Defeat of Britain will not free the oil of the ME and the DEI : the DEI were a Dutch colony, not a British colony .
4 If Britain was defeated, Germany would need less oil, not more oil .
2 prime time is before july 41 not after by then it is too late
3 germans were in the dutch homeland and in charge
the dutch could do nothing about any invasion of the DEI with england out there is no real defense
4 russia they need world free trade and oil to invade russia once england is out of the war
remember this is a one at a time plan NOT all at once
2 Why would August 1941 be too late ? Besides there was no need to invade the DEI before July 1941 .
3 Britain was not needed to defend the DEI ,but the USA . The British forces in SEA were unable to prevent a Japanese invasion of the DEI.
4 If Britain was out, there was no need to invade the SU ,besides the occupation of Britain would make Barbarossa impossible .
