    When you were young did you have relatives that had no children?

    If so, did you visit them as often as possible and, when you were old enough did you do as much as possible for them because they now needed help but had no children to give that help?

    How did it happen that when you watch old vintage Soviet or American films, mission control centers, everyone smoked and now it's taboo?

    When looking at old archival footage from NASA's US mission control center in Houston, or from the Soviet / Russian space control center in Moscow, all controllers smoked, but not now :-)

    why did britain and france declare war on hitler after the invasion of poland?

    Favorite Answer:

    After Hitler had already annexed Austria and annexed most of Czechoslovakia and then said he planned to invade invaded Poland to get Germans more "lebensraum" (i.e., living room), his hegemony became increasingly clear to everyone, especially to the UK, France, and the USSR, particularly given what he'd said in Mein Kampf, so the UK and France drew a line in the sand and said that enough was enough, that they weren't going to sit idly by as he took over Europe gathering more and more strength, and that if he invaded Poland, it would be war. 

    Meanwhile, the USSR entered the Treaty of Non-Aggression with Germany, knowing full well it was all buIIshit and that Hitler planned to have Germany invade the USSR, too, because he said as much in Mein Kampf, said Slavs, the race he said Russians belonged to, were subhuman and needed to be wiped off the face of the Earth, and used Soviet communism as his proof that Slavs were subhuman. Stalin signed the Treaty of Non-Aggression on behalf of the USSR and divided up Poland with Nazi Germany for the same reason Hitler proposed it: to buy time. The USSR needed time to prepare for war and Germany needed time to fell its enemies to the west, namely France and the UK, Hitler knowing full well that both would make good on their threats, all before going to war with the USSR because Hitler knew how foolhardy it would be to divide the Germany army and go to war on two fronts. So then it became a race between whether Stalin could ready the USSR for war before Hitler could defeat France and the UK and so be able to turn the full might of the German army on the USSR. Hitler, wanting the advantage of first-strike, made the fatal error of counting his chickens before they were hatched when he assumed the fall of the UK was imminent and attacked the USSR, so when the UK didn't fall, he suddenly had the war he feared he couldn't win, a war that divided the Germany army in half onto two fronts: the Western Front and the Eastern Front.

    Of course, he made another fatal error when he enlisted Japan to attack Pearl Harbor in exchange for all the oil in the Dutch West Indies after he'd conquered the Netherlands. He assumed Roosevelt would never be so foolhardy as to enter the United States into a state of total war on two fronts, so by involving the US in a war with Japan assumed FDR would stay out of the European theater. It turned out that Roosevelt, figuring that that's what Hitler expected, took the advantage by doing what Hitler didn't expect and didn't want, which was having the US declare war on Germany and enter the European theater, thus mitigating the risk of going to war on two fronts, a risk that was further mitigated by the fact that the war wasn't actually fought on American shores and he had the advantage of being able to convert America's entire economy, its entire industrial might, into a giant war machine whose operations could go unfettered and wouldn't be interrupted or interfered with by war on American soil. And so FDR pulled off what Hitler couldn't: successfully waging a state of total war on two fronts, even two fronts that couldn't be further apart from each other and thus thoroughly dividing the US's military might in two.

    How would you rank every great power (overall) during WW2?

    Here's my list

    1. America - was weak in the beginning but became the number 1 world power.

    2. Soviet Union - again weak from the start but emerged very powerful.

    3. Germany. Very powerful in the beginning but eventually beaten down.

    4. Japan. Again very powerful at first but was reduced to rubble and lost ground.

    5. Britain. Fairly powerful and a large navy but weak in comparison to the first four.

    6. China. Reasonably powerful but could never have took Japan on alone.

    7. Italy. Not much to say except they were very weak and only lasted because of Germany into 1943.

    8. France. Was actually very powerful at first but was quickly overrun.

    Was Richard Nixon a better President than LBJ?

    At least Nixon got us out of the Vietnam War and ended the draft and led us to the Paris Peace Accord after LBJ faked the Gulf of Tonkin Incident to get us involved full scale in Vietnam and micromanaged things to make it a endless political war. Nixon also got us in the Open Door Policy with China for free trade. I doubt Nixon would have got us in Vietnam if he were President instead of LBJ.
