I am very familiar with Samuel Johnson's "Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel".
It is not what I am taking about here.
Hitler had some valid points. Versaille Peace Treaty was the disaster waiting to happen.
According to your logic, we should have been friends with Hitler and Co. In fact we could understand Hitler much better than islamists.
I am not talking about patriotism here.
I am talking about fascination with the enemy which has nothing in common with the values of this country.
t doesn't belong here.
And please, please, don't bring "immoral" here,
What kind of "morale" you expect from the people who hide behind women and children and then bring their dead women and children to the world's attention?
