Nope, they should be taking names and addresses, that way the Trump Brown Shirts can round them up later if he is elected Fuhrer, oh wait I mean President, opps.
Too close to the truth for ya?
I object - Mussolini was actually highly intelligent, and had a cogent, well-thought-out political philosophy.
Every single election that I have seen one candidate or the other has been compared to Hitler and claims that they would act just like Hitler. Not once has it turned out to be true. It's simple fear mongering is all that it is. So no, its not "too close to the truth", it more like "idiotic statement made by partisan hacks".
Which is why every single plan he had turned into a liability, right?
Ethiopia---Italians need gas and massive air support to defeat a country which by all accounts wasn't exactly a formidable opponent---in the process totally alienating most of the world.
Albania---Added to total alienation, gained......uh.....what does Albania produce again? Bunkers?
Greece---utter fiasco, Germans had to bail them out, nearly lost Albania in the process.
France---Italy launches an attack with France already on the ropes but still doesn't gain much territory.
North Africa---Inital offensive turns into England grabbing half of Libya, requires a genius(Erwin Rommel) to turn things around, at least for a while.
Mussolini committed Italy to war far before the military was ready and as a result he doomed them to defeat.
Mussolini overreached militarily, sure. So did Lee. That doesn't make either man unintelligent, but simply men. Mussolini was the intellectual force behind Fascism - Hitler was a populist know-nothing ranter who caught a wave and rode it.
We have never had anyone afflicted with the level of Narcissism that The Donald displays daily, it is obvious he believes in his own hype, I personally consider it a form of mental illness. But hey support him if he is Your Kinda Guy.
1: I don't support him. :shrug: Believe it or not telling someone how stupid their statement is does not automatically mean that they support Trump, or anyone else for that matter.
2: Hillary displays the same amount of narcissism as Trump. Though I'm sure you'll disagree.
