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.

-           Will they   tell us how   in English and French newspapers they published   the statements, 'The whole Czech nation   worth less then one English of French soldier!'?

-Will they tell us about the " strange war' in 1939 -1940 when until Hitler ordered   to attack France, French and British troops, outnumbering Germans in people and ammo   STOOD STILL for many months on the border while   the British and French   media howled,' Direct the German Expansion to the East and we here, in the west will be content.'?

-           Will they tell us about   Operation Catapult when   English Navy attacked and drowned several French ships ( about 4000 sailors died) to prevent them from the possible joining the Vichy but   that   did   not stop US from   establishing   the   diplomatic relationship with the Vichy govt?

-           Will they tell us about   the Arctic disaster of the British Navy?

-           Will they tell   us about   the story of Coventry when Winnie, the Pooh knowingly let Germans to bomb it to dust because he was afraid that Germans would   understand that British had cracked the code and would change   it?

- Will they tell us about   a strange story of Yugoslavia in 1941 when British directed the   coup against the pro- German   govt but then, when Hitler and Mussolini attacked the country mercilessly- English did not help?

They pulverized Belgrade then and in 1999- that tells you something.

-           Will they tell us   about the   firebombing of Dresden, where 300000 people died in fire, including   about 10000 English and American POWs while the only   building of military significance- the railway station survived? That was in 1945, when Russians were in Germany already.

- Will they tell us    how    in preparation   to the Operation Overlord, the invasion of France in 1944, English and Americans although keeping De Gaulle in limbo   pushed him to order   the   Vercor uprising of French resistance to distract Germans. The uprising was crushed and it was then   when the people of Oradur -- Su- Glan were burned alive, all of them by SS.   There were 37 German divisions then in France against 100 divisions of Alllies and it was right after the best German generals were killed by Hitler. Why did Winnie want to sacrifice more French?

-           Will they tell us   about a desperate telegram from Churchill to Stalin   in 1945 during the Battle of the Bulge that unless Russians expedite   their offensive   on the Eastern Front, there could be a risk of total Allies'   defeat? That was not true- although Germans were immensely successful   in Ardennes, the   Allied forces still maintained the superiority and never there was any real danger   for them. Stalin promptly obliged: he started several offensives   before   Russians were fully prepared and   Russian casualties were enormous- only at Zeelov   Hills 300000   died. The elite 6th tank army of SS was redirected by Hitler from Ardennes to Hungary   where   it   fiercely attacked the advancing Russian troops which   resulted in casualties beyond any belief. I am not even mentioning civilians. BTW, during all those campaigns of bombing the railway roads of Germany and Western Europe miraculously   survived and Hitler could use them again and again.
