As sad and hateful a war is, times come when nations are left with no choice except to put it’s young men and women in the harms way. While it is still controversial, whether we should have got involved in world war two or not, we did, and our brave men and women fought the heck of a war. There is absolutely no doubt that it was impossible for allies to win the war without the involvement of United States. Germans and Japanese did and would have easily ran over every allied country, and everything and everyone in their way. That is why the biggest mistake in the war was done by Japanese by attacking Pearl Harbor. They woke up the sleeping lion and ultimately lost war, due to that mistake.
Although, some of the heroes, may not be as heroic as originally thought, our soldiers and sailors sincerely fought, sacrificed and died for the country and nation. One of those “not so heroic” was Churchill. Please read article, Declassified WWII documents reveal Churchill’s inhumanity on Whatistheword.com The article reports:
“Churchill wanted ‘three for one’ bombing of German villages to avenge killing of civilians in Czech villages, wanted Hitler to be executed on electric chair without a fair trail which would cause complications and he was willing to let Mahatma Gandhi die, reveals several wartime cabinet documents pertaining to World War II which were recently declassified.
After the massacre of Czech civilians in the village Lidice north of Prague in 1942, Churchill proposed the RAF to wipe out three villages in retaliation for massacre in every one, according to these document.
Clement Attlee, then the dominions secretary and later to become the Labor prime minister maintained it unwise � to enter into competition in frightfulness with the Germans. �
He is also noted to have proposed the execution of Hitler ‘like a gangster’ on a electric chair borrowed from America if the Fuehrer were to be caught alive by British troops.
The National Archives at Kew, south-west London made these notes public.
Regarding the execution of Hitler, Churchill is noted by Sir Normal to have said, � Contemplate that if Hitler falls into our hands we shall certainly put him to death. �
Churchill is noted to have agreed that Hitler’s trial would be ‘a farce,’ going to add that ‘all sorts of complications ensue as soon as you admit a fair trial.
The ruthlessness of Churchill becomes evident in these notes where he is noted to have said that if the Nazis began murdering British prisoners, German POWs captured by British should be shot.
After Mahatma Gandhi went on a hunger in 1942 protesting the involvement of Indian soldiers in the war against Hitler, Churchill proposed to let him die, stating that the Indian leader be treated at par with other prisoners.
It is believed that at a time when Britain and its ally the US are being blamed for wartime atrocities, these revelations would help win over world opinion in their favor.”
Now, there is little or no doubt left about the fact that FDR knew and actually encouraged the Japanese to attack on Pearl Harbor. Please, refer to the article,

““…everything that the Japanese were planning to do was known to the United States…” ARMY BOARD, 1944
FDR needed the attack to sucker Hitler to declare war, since the public and Congress were overwhelmingly against entering the war in Europe. It was his backdoor to war.
FDR blinded the commanders at Pearl Harbor and set them up by –
- denying intelligence to Hawaii (HI)
- on Nov 27, misleading the commanders into thinking negotiations with Japan were continuing to prevent them from realizing the war was on
- having false information sent to HI about the location of the Japanese carrier fleet.
