La Maga Posted May 3, 2003 Share Posted May 3, 2003 Reilly: Thank America? America did what was convenient for them. Don't come to me with that 'thank America' thing- Earlier it was Comunism, now it's Terrorism. U.S. will always find an -ism to justify their pretty democratic genocides. Anyway, I was talking about the pre Nazi years. First post war. The state of Germany was terrible and the Alliads left it alone, humilliated and destroyed. I think it was naive for them to think nobody would react to that... then Hitler came and they were fascinated at first, U.S. dominant class loved him! Later, he 'became' a monster and they were surprised... And Marshall Aid, in my opinion, was a way to buy Europe and Japan (very close geographically to China and Russia) so they wouldn't be under Comunist influence (both Italy and France had strong Comunist Parties). In the Japan case, I guess it was also a bit of guilt for Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the worst tragedies ever but of course politics and war strategies justify it and besides, Pearl Harbour had to be revenged... :roll: I'm sick of hearing U.S. embraced as heroes and saviors, they just do what is good for them, there's nothing heroic about that.
