Two complete army groups could have tipped the balance. Not to mention aircraft losses over the UK in the Battle of Britain.

That's almost 5000 per day. According to Boris Sokolov's "The cost of war: Human losses for the USSR and Germany, 1939-1945" in The Journal of Soviet Military Studies Volume 9, Issue 1 March 1996, the forces squandered in occupation forces in the Baltics, Latvia, Lithuania, Greece, France and lost in North Africa could have doubled that. That would have been unsustainable, even by Russian standards.
Someone on the thread was saying that the war for the Germans was a matter of Russian attrition. Any country with Japan on one end and Finland on the other is one massive land mass.
Kinda ironic, what defeated Hitler was his ignorance of history. Should have studied Napolean, who shared Hitler's contempt for Russia.
And btw this started when I challenged the chauvinistic contention that we won the war. I simply pointed out that in fact the lion's share of credit for defeating the Germans should go to the Russians. All the "arguments" put forth have been why they were able to do so. Precious little countering the premise.

In 1913 the fascists adopted legislation in order to "soak the rich". Find someone who works for a living, tell them to show their paycheck and bingo, whoomp there it is, deductions to pay the "income" and social security taxes.
Now Obama gets ready to levy a 2nd soak the rich tax which, just like its 1913 predecessor will be passed on to the middle class and the poor.
When will you people learn?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
Third soak the ebil debeel rich... the malformed monstrous entity from the womb of horrors, the AMT, was the second.
And there is an interesting link between crime in Baltimore and other cities and the documentary that is the subject of this thread: America has never produced a Black businessman with a personal net worth of $1 billion. Entertainment moguls such as Oprah and Bob Johnson don't count, as entertainment is radically different from business in general.
The Germans had Romanian, Hungarian, Croatian and Italian troops defending the flanks, guess where the Shock armies attacked, both north and south of the city.
Your boy is a drug damaged pos without a clue of what he's doing. DC would be 50% without the govt and beltway bandits
