Yeah, but at what price? It was too high.
There was no other way, this in no way lessens Hitlers responsibility, i'm just pointing out that world war was the only possible solution to tensions and the only way to transform Europe.
They could have found better ways to achieve all that.
Nope, there was no other way to stabilise Europe.
Yes, Obama shares Hitler-esque qualities.
Like what? He's nowhere near as charismatic as Hitler, he's educated and outspoken which earns him respect since Bush was just a little hillbilly redneck and he contrasts with Obama but he's (just like Bush) another figurehead.
Yes, eventually the debacle in Iraq will turn out to be a good thing if they can hold it together, just as you recognize WWII did.
No it will not, U.S will strip the region of oil and leave it destabilized, in time Arabs will pull their shit together and form a rabidly anti-US block and God forbid if they ever develop nuclear weapons, U.S will get nuked.
Also WW2 was never a good thing, it was neccesary to achieve status quo and stability in Europe but it was far from good, also Hitler gets no praise for that since all positive effects for unintentional (though foreseeable).
Short term goals creating historical enemies is not a smart thing to do.
See, Sokrates, you are stuck in this mode where you are determined to oppose everything I say only because your feelings are still hurt for my exposing your Jew-baby murdering ways. To the point of making yourself look like a bitter fool.
You're still embarassing yourself to the point of repetition.
I just don't see how Hitler helped the situation by invading and thus, destabilizing Poland.
He either murdered or was an indirect reason of later soviet displacements, all hostile minorities were either dead or displaced and Poland became a solid and stable society.
Hitler and Stalin were destabilizers,
Yes and no, they were destroyers of old order but ultimately incapable of creating new one, the new one came as synthesis of East/West interaction.
it was the US and Britain who kept communism out of western Europe.
Correct but communism was an artificial construct that could not last, it did help shape the Europe of today though.
All Hitler wanted was for everyone to be German.
I am not giving him any credit whatsoever, the guy was a murdering nutcase but he did trigger change and stability even if unintentionally.
