PostDid Hitler Ever Keep His Word? (Tor Guimaraes, USA, 08/21/15 9:37 am)
Taking into consideration that in general, with very few exceptions (i.e. Jimmy Carter, Chuck Womack, Eisenhower?) politicians are prone to lying, I find it shockingly naïve that Eugenio Battaglia (21 August) believes Hitler would keep his word even to his own mother.
Is Hitler not the one who burned the Reichstag? Signed a non-aggression treaty with Stalin and then invaded the USSR? Murdered millions of innocent people throughout Europe?
What makes anyone have any reason to believe that he would have kept any agreements after he had won WWII? In this case, I believe the Nazis would have digested the conquered land and peoples, and then, true to their mentality, would have embarked into phase 2 for world domination. There would be only one master race, and the rest would be harnessed in a wide variety of ways to serve it.
JE comments: The subject line of this post was my choice. It sums up everything.
Since Tor Guimaraes brought up President Carter, I wish him much courage as he continues his battle with cancer. He is facing his biggest challenge yet with grace and humor. Just another example of why JC has become the most beloved ex-President in US history.
