And for nearly rolling over to the Nazis, yes. I understand that millions of Russians (or well, I guess they were all Soviets back then) lost their lives while the Wermacht rolled across Russia because Iron Joe curled up in a ball because he couldn't BELEIVE the Germans were abrogating their treaty.
Killing off most of his military's leading mind probably didn't help either.
Why is it people tend not to appreciate life in the US unless they've been somewhere else for a while? Same thing happened to me with a 2-month trip that spanned Europe and parts of Asia (Japan, Korea and Hong Kong). Did you spend time in Venice?
