    Japan assaulted the USA December 7, 1941. USA announced battle on Japan December 8, 1941. As per its union with Japan Germany announced battle on the USA December 10, 1941. USA around then would have readily not engaged in battling in Europe and the Pacific at the same time, yet Germany left no decision.

    Actually, Hoover and other Republicans advocated leaving Germany and the Soviet Union to fight it out, apparently thinking that Germany would destroy Communism.  In my view, such a strategy would have resulted in all of Europe falling under Communist domination.  The Soviets pushed back the Germans largely without any Allied assistance.  At Potsdam, Truman congratulated Stalin on reaching Berlin.  Stalin sniffed and said that was nothing, Tsar Alexander I made it to Paris.

    The cold war was good for the family unit. It promoted stability and planned wars.

    War is a disaster for humankind. Killing is not the way to settle down debuts. But sometimes you are forced into a war beyond your willing. The USA's best choice Is selling various military products and equipment to both sides. At least, not too early to involve in a war. But once in a war, you have to muster up all strength to counter back.  With the aid of the enemy's enemy, the USA didn't splash too much blood In Europe. Russian took most causalities to wear down Germans. Otherwise, it would continue to fight longer and would cause much more casualties for the USA and Its allies. There is no eternal enemy, and vice versa.

    Both Hitler and Napoleon underestimated Russian.

    Japan attacked the USA December 7, 1941.  USA declared war on Japan December 8, 1941.  In accord with its alliance with Japan Germany declared war on the USA December 10, 1941.  USA at that time would have gladly not gotten involved in fighting in Europe and the Pacific simultaneously, but Germany left no choice.

    For the first two years (Sept 1939 - Dec 1941) US manufacturers were selling goods and services to the British, Russians, Germany, Italy, etc and making a bundle. This ended, when Japan attacked Pearl Harbor, Hitler/Germany declared war on the United States. The rest is history.

    Finland was allied with the Nazi's at the beginning of WW2 against the Russians, who have always been their arch enemy.

    German militaristic aggression and oppression strengthened the US bond w/ it's ally England. The US aided England's battle to defeat Germany. Germany declared war on the US shortly after it's ally (Japan) sneak attacked Pearl. 

    You must have been home sick for a long time to miss that much education because your q reflects someone who is uneducated, unintellignt and/or dishonest.

    You have no idea how the world would have developed w/ a US/German alliance. I'm comfortable w/ this one. 

    Hitler's fascist extremism was just as fundamentally opposed to US democracy as Stalin's communism.
