This is just hilarious. Our guy Tom Brokaw   will unleash the   documentary about   Brits and Americans during WWII, paying special tribute to Churchill and FDR. Now we will have two great men instead of three before, who apparently defined the   path of History ( such   small potatoes like De   Gaulle or   Tito   are not worth mentioning, of course).   Steady boy, steady; let's see if they tell us about some   inglorious moments too:


-      Will they tell us about England, France and US openly ignoring taking of Austria by   Germans in 1938   which was preceded by the assassination of Chancellor Dolphus in   his office and subsequent    imprisonment of Chancellor Shushnig? Those, who watch now the   way we handle Syria    should make a note for themselves.   Also, will they tell us   about   Vienna Jews   forced to clean the streets of Vienna   with toothbrushes while Winnie and Co.   had fun (you say Winnie was not in charge?   In England it is not the man that counts but belonging)?


-           Will they tell us how   in Munich in 1938   England and others with the support of the US betrayed Czechoslovakia; how Czech army generals   pleaded that their army, ready and willing needed only the cover from air to   INVADE Bavaria, how   Russia was offering   help but Poland refused to let Russian armies through and how Polish armies together with Hungarians actually joined Hitler in the attack on Czechoslovakia?


-           Will they tell us how the US insurance companies refused to honor the insurance    claims by German Jews after the   CrystallNacht and also how the US shipping companies   supplied their German subsidiaries with   the cargo manifests for all ships going to the Atlantic up until 1943? Globalization, huh?


-           Will they tell us   how for some strange reason the English/French delegation sent to Moscow   in 1939 to sign a deal about mutual struggle against Germany had no credentials   and    it was because of that   the insulted Stalin turned to Hitler instead?


-           Will they tell us   how Winnie and Co. supported the choking of the Spanish Republic, openly attacked by German Legion Condor and   Italian tank corps   and how England was   OK when Guernica was destroyed and Madrid was firebombed? It was the prelude   for Coventry. Dresden and Hiroshima.
