    I have suggested to Chic, a few times, that she gather her evidence and send it to the historians that rate the presidents. At that time the historians were communists so evidence meant nothing. But there should be a few conservative historians that would make use of her evidence so the historians do not keep voting FDR as America's greatest president.
    Of course there is the other problem, the people's vote, 4X.



















































    ;,. the people's vote--four times.
















    ; of the American people voting for FDR four times.

    This is what conspiracy theorist do. The basis for the OP's claim that FDR could have ended the war in 1943 is that a British Intelligence Chief claims his own British Foreign Office prevented his from making contact with a member of Hitler's staff and discussing the removal of Hitler by coup or assassination. Hence, FDR is responsible for prolonging the war? Does that make sense to anyone?

    "Hence, FDR is responsible for prolonging the war? Does that make sense to anyone?"

    Oh, but he was.


    You need another spanking???

    No prob.


    There was a large and well-organized anti-Nazi, and anti-communist underground in Germany, and Stalin demanded that it never be recognized....or even its existence admitted.


    "In a certain sense there was not a single year between 1933 and 1945 during which there was not some contact or attempt at contact, between the anti-Hitler opposition and either Britain or the Unites States, or both." The Greatest War Crime


    Just as he extended the Depression though counter-productive policies and stupidity,Franklin Roosevelt extended WWII by years......years that cost thousands of American lives....by his affiliation with Stalin.
    Stalin demanded that the Allies ignore German anti-Nazi resistance; Roosevelt bowed to the demand, as he did to Stalin's other demands.

    Just one more example of Roosevelt's infatuation with the blood-drenched homicidal maniac, Joseph 'Koba' Stalin.




    In October of 1944, the AP bureau chief in Berlin, Louis Lochner tried to file a story on the anti-Nazi Germans operating out of France. The US military censors blocked the story.

    "The government official in charge of censorship was forthcoming enough to confide to Lochner that there was a personal directive from the president of the United States 'in his capacity as commander in chief forbidding all mention of the German resistance."
    "Hitler and America,"by Klaus P. Fischer



    "....a personal directive from the president...."


    Why?


    Fischer quotes Lochner as follows: "Stories of the existence of a resistance movement did not fit into the concept of Unconditional Surrender."



    How ya' like them apples, boooooyyyyyyyeeeeeee??????

    Sometimes the truth is a bitch.
    Anyone from Germany can tell about Russians and the way they act.

    Why?

    Because the Communists were engaged with Hitler in a fight to the death
    If they had just been fighting among themselves, we probably would have just let them

    But we wanted to defend England and liberate France, Belgium, Netherlands and Norway. To do that we needed to fight the Nazis

    Besides......Germany declared war on us

    Roosevelt was correct in his view that Germany was a greater threat than Japan. The Russians were grinding up the German Army while NZ and Aus made little impact on Germany. Once Germany was defeated NZ and Aus would be liberated from Japan with ease.

    If Russia was defeated or made peace with Hitler we never have been able to liberate France and defeat Germany.

    Bet you learned that in government school, huh?

    They taught you that Hitler and Stalin would have joined forces, after June 22 of 1941?


    Really?


    Your head cold without this????

    Agree

    If Hitler moved most of his forces into Western Europe, we never would have dislodged him
