    I am only dumbfounded by all of the negative reactions that Mr. Johnson has received when yesterday he made a short impromptu speech concerning the 80th anniversary of the out break of the Second World War. Basically he reminded everyone of the guilt of the NAZI Germans but also pointed out the complicity of the Stalin Government. Mr. Johnson was 100% correct. World War Two was started jointly. Hitler invaded first and the Russians soon thereafter. Moreover, there was a very lucrative trade agreement between the two and another secret agreement in which Stalin annexed the Baltic States with the expressed approval of Hitler. I assume Russia does not want to be reminded that once in its political world, they licked the boots of the NAZI`s!

    What about it? Maybe you are implying that the UK was complicit in the annexation of the Czech Republic?

    I would like to ask the British here.
    Why did they decide to abandon the alliance with Italy in 1936, that is after we Italians passed a law known as Legge Bankitalia that practically excluded the Rothschilds banking system from Italy?
    Thank you in advance.

    It might help if you were to give examples of these negative reactions, so we can understand what point the people being negative were making. Do you have any links or quotations you can cite?

    I am for instance aware that Bozo likes to make silly references to WW2 to create an absurd parallel in the minds of his "core vote" (cf. the Trump playbook) between Nazi Germany and the EU. A lot of people, myself included, find that offensive.

    The Russian Government made the loudest complaint. Saw it on a report on RT. You can see this on Youtube

    WOW! Good information. England was in the forefront to punish Italy for its real questionable behaviour in Libya and Ethiopia and other annexed colonies.

    Yes, because they should take account of their actions and express sorrow for all of the misery they caused!

    Yes but Russians don't do apologies and they have a notoriously nationalistic view of their history, especially now under Putin.

    I had thought you meant there were commentators in Europe or N America taking issue with Bozo's speech.

    Yes I see your point. But like today, fascist liberals have done everything possible to appease religious groups who do nothing but wage war and seek special treatment.
    Yes there were others, but I cannot remember who they where.

    Btw Germany has always wanted to dominate Europe, with the Holy Roman Empire or first Reich, with the Second Empire or 2nd Reich, with the Third Reich and now with the European Union, the ECB in Frankfurt, aka Fourth Reich.

    Englad did not join into the war. England decided to war with Germany who had never bothered her, before that moment.

    Britain, and they took what was left of the empire with them making it a world war as opposed to a local one
