Why didn't this pan out? Why can't Britain into space?
>>
They had to tax the shit out of people and use all kinds of controls to keep capital from leaving the island in order to pay their WW2 debts.
>>
Fact: Had the Brits voted Mosley, they would have into space in the 60's already.
>>
>>12366526
they cant even fix their retarded voices and their teeth how can they build a rocket
>>
tell the muslims there are infidels in space and you have interstellar british kaliphate in less than 20 years
>>
>>12366552
I hate br*ts but Mosley was the man
>>
>>12366552
>>12366587
Who was Mosley?
>>
>>12366612
Founde of the British Union of Fascists, later remained in politics but was effectively neutered.
>>
>>12366612
Oswald Mosle, one of the last true british patriots, got absolutely shafted by the scumbag eltites in ww2
>>
>>12366538
Sometimes I wonder how far we would be now if Hitler had been ruthless at Dunkirk and actually crossed the channel when britain wasn't ready
>>
>>12366552
Fact: had the Brits voted Mosley, they would have bombed to nothing by the USA in WW2. The same for all other allies of Imperial Japan.
>>
>>12366631
The Royal Navy would have sunk any crossing. They outnumbered the German Navy 6 to 1.
>>
>>12366631
Nah, the Germans absolutely did not have the sealift capability to carry out Operation Sea Lion.
>>
>>12366631
Probably further along given that Germany trying to cross the channel would result in the largest one-sided shootout in modern history. This would drain available manpower in Germany, and thus allow the Allies to push to Berlin while seeing less resistance and less damage to their own industry.
>>
>>12366644
Even if they did, the USA would have still bombed the shit out of them. The only way to keep the USA out of Europe was for all Europeans, on both sides of the war, to take the US side against Japan. Anybody who allied with Japan lost.
>>
>>12366638
would they have flown their bombers all the way from america?
>>
>>12366655
They could have started from Russia, Egypt or Ireland.
>>
>>12366664
All of them would have been defeated by the time burgerland could have reacted.
>>
>>12366526
It did, it just got canceled due to politics by the time it was already developed
>>
>>12366526
better be a US cuck boi. Oh the irony. Tell the Brits in the 19th century that they'll be their own colony's bitch in a 100 years and they'll choke on tea.
>>
>>12366688
Lend lease predated Pearl Harbor
>>
>>12366652
But the US baited the japs into attacking?
>>
>>12366655
The B-29 can bomb the UK from from across the Atlantic, yes.
>>
>>12366740
The US was under no obligation to sell oil to Japan. Invading other countries and killing 11 million civilians tends to make other people not like you.

If you ask me the Japs got off easy.
Germany is still guilt tripped about WW2.
Nobody remembers the Japs killed as many civilians as the Nazis.
>>
>>12366780
>Germany is still guilt tripped about WW2.
they're high empathy and subject to a lot of guilt tipping propaganda so it doesn't really surprise me, guys like preston Bush and Allen Dulles made out lklike bandits and never saw consequences
>>
>>12366740
No they didn't.
>>
>>12366800
FDR made threats through intercepted cables
>>
>>12366631
A better scenario would be if Hitler followed through with anhillating the RAF bases and gaining air superiority
>>
>>12366812
Do these cables exist or is it made up weeaboo wish fulfillment?

>The First American Volunteer Group (AVG) of the Republic of China Air Force in 1941–1942, nicknamed the Flying Tigers, was composed of pilots from the United States Army Air Corps (USAAC), Navy (USN), and Marine Corps (USMC), recruited under President Franklin Roosevelt's authority before Pearl Harbor and commanded by Claire Lee Chennault.

embargoing oil is an act of war
its written in the geneva convention iirc or other military texts/laws

You couldn't be more wrong. I'm an Orthodox Christian, writing from a welfare state up in the nordic Europe.

Moreover, your answer is bullshit, it is not an argument, and therefore pointless to the conversation.

What I don't understand is how to help people like you. Trolling must have become a habit that is eating away your life, both physically and mentally speaking. Still, I will keep trying to reach out to you all.
>>
>>12367999
m8 if you are from a welfare state in nordic Yurop (like me btw) you are either from a place like the fucking Finnmark and don't realize what's going down in slightly more populated areas or you are unironically completely indoctrinated by no nations no borders lmao propaganda.

And 'm8' if you are from the great America, then you are welcome to set your country against mine. I guarantee you, my stats will win over yours 96% of the time.

Our wellbeign has ascended to a level, where people felt that using the word welfare no longer accurately drew the kind of mental image of the respect we have towards each other. We nowadays call it 'social state'. (Note; social, not socialistic. We have an enormous amount of positive liberty in our societies.)

just like they bombed Franco Spain eh

It's not. Now you've resorted to lying through your teeth.

Name the article and post proof.

unlike US or Russia they werent able to re-appropriate german research, patents and scientists to significant extent

Money that could've been spent on Space was instead spent on welfare, war debts, inefficient nationalised industries and nuclear weapons.
>>
>>12369675
Nobody's perfect.
>>
This thread full of Britbong copium.

Britain can't get into space because they spend a lot of money they don't have on welfare and meme aircraft carriers to try and flex on the Russians.

Basically Britain is fucked because they still act like it's the early 1900's when they had a robust economy, advanced technology, and an empire.

There's a lot of truth to that, I see the dtsgenics projections as concerning.
>>
>>12366631
WWII would have been a lot shorter and less bloody had Hitler been hopelessly crushed in 1940. Operation Barbarrossa and the subsequent destruction of Eastern Europe and Anglo-American flattening of German cities would have been avoided
>>
>>12372573
Without the holocaust there wouldn't be as much propaganda and suppression of debate.

but Chinese are not human

>>12372584
And without the invasion of the Soviet Union, they commies don't get the chance to gobble up the rest of Eastern and Central Europe. The United States possibly also remains quasi-isolationist
>>
>>12372617
Hold on what would have stopped the commie expansion? Didn't HItler ramp up military spending mostly to counter the russina threat?
>>
>>12366626
That's what he gets for kissing-arse to the country that tried to shatter Britain in its conquest of the European continent.
>>
>>12366640

Had Hitler allotted the Luftwaffe properly in the Battle of Britain (i.e. continuing to focus on British air fields and ports, ignoring cities), he'd eventually have degraded the RAF to the point where he could then demolish the RN and British freighters from above. Then he could have actually blitzed and besieged the island into capitulation, no boots on the ground needed.

Hindsight sure is 20/20.

>>12372584
Demonization and fabricated evidence about incidents and circumstances from an essential part of the western filter bubble.
With a critical eye you will be able to see that every single year, big movies and series are produced, which parrot the status quo and reinforce prejudice.
In big productions the bad guys share nazi characteristics and outer appearance, for example in the new "the boys" series is a character called "stormfront", the connotation is clear, now you can take a close look on how thqt character is portrayed.
Whenever you watch that new hot Hollywood movie, watch it with critical spirit and you will be able to see the propaganda.
You would think that this specific formula and stereotype has dried up over the decades but it hasn't, as it is actively being kept alive and propagated repeatedly.
Seemingly few people seem capable of seeing the frames of mind that are put around them with intention and calculation, that's why propaganda is so effective, as the most don't distinguish between a genuine attempt of communicating information of integrity and propaganda which is more wishful thinking or fiction than anything.

We can't into anything cause of fucking corrupt/and or incompetent government and management that throttles the life out of any innovation British engineers make
>Calder Hall
The first nuclear power plant to operate a commercial scale. In the words of Baron Hinton, the man who planned the project, we were five years ahead of the world in nuclear power generation technology. Now with the privatisation of electricity generation and the atrophy of our knowledge and engineering base, we have to ask the French, the Chinese and Japanese to build plants. However with Brexit, the latter seems reluctant to invest.
>Vickers VC10
A passenger aircraft designed for Hot Short takeoffs, the VC10 was praised for its quiet nature, reliability and comfort. It was also until recently, the fastest transatlantic aircraft besides Concorde. However it was trashed by BOAC, the very state-owned organisation that commissioned it and whose requirements affected its own design.
>APT
Advanced Passenger Train, capable of tilting so as to allow it high speed travel on Britain's winding railways. However despite improvements after poor initial reactions, the Press and the Thatcher government had a vendetta towards the APT.
Also worth noting that British governments loved sucking up to American corporations while doing their best to undermine their own industries, not mention allowing asset strippers to tear apart any business they could get their hands on (Jim Slater, James Goldsmith etc.)

It's a sad state of affairs we're in now mate.
How did we fall so low?

Laziness, greed, bad circumstances.

>>12373740
Would like to add that HS2 is a fucking mess and honestly I'd rather have greater investment in the rest of railways so we could have more trains and better comfort.

because germans are the only ones smart enough to build moon rockets. when all the paperclip nazis died out we stopped going to the moon.
