    No only the Iranians are Aryan.

    This is not accurate. It was the Islamic religion which appealed
    to Hitler. He though it a appropriate religion for a warrior nation,
    and despised Christianity (despite what he may have said in his
    speeches) because of its gentle and pacifist elements.

    He held the Arabs in low esteem as Semetic cousins of the Jews.
    I think it is safe to guess that he also viewed the Turks as lower-
    order than "Arians", although perhaps not so far removed as the
    Semetics.

    He was willing to make temporary, tactical alliances with almost
    anyone.




    What are you talking about?




    How so, aside from routine trading relations?




    Subject Muslims could have caused the UK and the French
    much more trouble than they did. They probably knew enough
    bout Hitler's racism to prefer what they had.




    Raiders of the Lost Ark? Is this a joke?

    So are the Indic people, their closest relatives, in many classification systems. However, Hitler considered the Germans and the Nordic peoples "Aryan." The Germanic peoples are Western Indo-Europeans, while the Indo-Iranians are Eastern Indo-Europeans. So to call them Aryan would require expanding the definition to include all Indo-Europeans, including the Slavs, whom he regarded as inferior--and are more closely related to the Persians than he was!

    The Indo-European family of languages may be spoken
    by nearly as many people in Asia than in Europe and the
    Americas.

    Here is a list of Asian IE languages with at least 1 million
    native speakers (per Wiki list):

    Hindi (~200 million speakers)
    Bengali (170 million)
    Punjabi (70 million)
    Urdu (60 million)
    Gujarati (50 million)
    Pashtun (50 million)
    Bhojpuri (40 million)
    Bihari (35 million)
    Oriya (32 million)
    Farsee (32 million)
    Sindhi (20 million)
    Saiki (20 million)
    Nepali (16 million)
    Sinhalese (16 million)
    Assamese (15 million)
    Kurdish (10 million)
    Baluchi (7 million)
    Pahali-Potwari (5 million)
    Kashmiri (5 million)
    Tajik (4 million)
    Mazanderani (3 million)
    Gilaki (3 million)
    Kyrgyz (3 million)
    Hindko (3 million)
    Garhwali (3 million)
    Luri (2 million)
    Doghri (2 million)
    Zazaki (2 million)
    Khandeshi (2 million)
    Koli (1 million)
    Malvi (1 million)
    Bhili (1 million)

    That is 32 languages with close to 900 million speakers aggregate.

    1940, Population of Germany, Austria and German Speaking annexed territories - 80 millions. Population of USSR + USA + England is roughly 400 millions +/-. It might have had something to do with Germany not invading Turkey, India, Argentina, Brazil, Equatorial Africa & North Pole.

    He was too busy entering Blondie the Alsatian to bother with Turkey.

    Call me a dog whisperer if you will, but I have a theory.
    That dog is scared, isn't it?

    That was his own dog fer Christ's sakes!

    If I greeted my dog after a few days, it would be going crazy.
    Happy crazy.

    Well...Hitler was said to have erupted into fits of rage on a semi-regular basis. I'd venture to guess the dog was witness - so to speak - to some of those episodes. Perhaps even subjected to abuse.

    If you ask me, I think Blondie had been taking it on the chin for being the actual architect of the aborted Operation Sea Lion plan...

    The dog is pointing to a fairly good invasion point.
    Maybe you have something there.

    But a few minutes ago you were wagging your tail at Russia.
    What are you trying to tell me Blondie?
    Open a second front?
    Gott im Schnitzel! Of course!

    The only mistake Hitler ever made was allowing Japan to attack us. If we stay out France falls, as normal, England surly falls, then Hitler can turn all his attention to Russia. At this point America has two options, A. Help its communist rival or B. Just let them fall and hope Germany, and Japan don't invade us. Either way if America doesn't get in the war Hitler takes over the world.. rather easily actually.

    Hitler didn't "allow" it. He had nothing to do with the decision.

    Huh?

    Also huh?

    Maybe you should go read some genuine history books.

    If America doesnt get involved France falls, just as they did in real life, then Germany takes out England THEN they invade Russia who is already at war with Japan. After they roll over Russia both Germany, and Japan can fight America, and with joint powers they probably see us crumble.

    How can you say a speculation is wrong?

    Quite simple: your "speculation" is uninformed and erroneous. Like I said, go away and read some history books.
