Never forget what British minds
got us after we sacrificed American
soldiers to break the WWI stalemate.
After our Presidential Election, Brits wondered "How Could 59 Million Americans Be So Dumb?" It wasn't the first time, they looked down their snooty noses at us. The British and French Prime Ministers publicly ridiculed President Wilson when he traveled to France to offer a 14 point peace plan. They regarded the plan as nonsense (dumb), laughed at Wislon publicly in his face, and imposed the Treaty of Versailles on a troubled Europe. When Hitler threatened War, if he were denied the Sudetenland, Brits exercised their superior brain power by appeasing him. Of course, once Hitler had the Sudetenland, his forces quickly took the rest of Czechoslovakia.
Brits might as well have painted Iron Crosses on Czech Armor
like this T38.
Chamberlain's sophisticated, European diplomacy gave Adolf Hitler Czechoslovakia's renowned munitions industry, including T-35 and T-38 tanks, renamed by Germany as Panzer-35T and Panzer-38T tanks, each of which was superior to Hitler's tanks of the time. One fourth of tanks which blitkrieged across Europe in 1940-41 were Czech.
The golden age of the panzers, when the light and Czech tanks
made up the bulk of the panzerdivisionen.
The paper Chamberlain waved to his countrymen may as well have been a Bill of Sale of Czech armaments. So, what gives Brits the right to call us dumb?
