  •  Such as? (3.60)
    do what Europeans had to do when Hitler took over

    Such as going into exile, or asking the Americans to come in and get rid of him?

    •  How about the Red Army? (4.00)
      The Wehrmacht took 94% of its casualties on the Eastern Front from 6/41 through 6/44.

      Some men see things as they are and ask why. I see things that never were and ask why not?

    •  I believe that... (4.00)
      ...the loss of Russian life in defeating the Germans on the Western front was in the region of 21 million.

      Out of courtesy to this not insignificant contribution - forget all the remaining 30 million dead in other parts of Europe - can we regard it as an allied effort, perhaps?

      •  Uh, Yeah (none)
        Considering that some European countries lost as many as 1 out of 5 citizens, yes ... I think there was some sacrifice on the part of Europe.

        After The Rapture, we get all of their stuff.

      •  50% of ALL military casualties in WWII (none)
        were suffered in Russia's Great Patriotic War (i.e., the Eastern Front).  That includes the Pacific theatre as well.

        Without an Allied victory there, nothing else would have mattered.
