In fairness, Hitler had a not unreasonable hit rate on strategic and operational decisions against the advice of some of his generals. Go through the Ardennes, hold firm in trenches outside of Moscow rather than being caught in the open trying to retreat through the snow and mud, keep the armour in reserve on June 6th, arguably the Dunkirk stop order. After the debacle in Yemen I think Donald is 0/1 so far for risky military operations that have paid off.

Donald doesn't actually have the end goal of the deaths of tens of millions of people though, so I think he's still marginally ahead of Hitler on smarts.
What if Wargame stuck to timeframe?

I just witnessed Croatian border police computer systems get nuked by WannaCry. And by that I mean all of them.

Literally on the second I got there. Spooky.
The SEAD never bothered me anyway.

At least he didn't say that, yet. Just that the US needs to start winning wars.

Maybe we should be more worried about Macron. Weren't the National Socialists a moderate centrist view too? Trump is just the enfant terrible raised among the country's elites, nobody takes him seriously so he can't rally the nation like Hitler did.

He wouldn't be Hitler at all. Dude was an Austrian citizen, he went faaar out of his way to serve in the Kaiser's army and was apparently very unpopular because he remained super hooah throughout his time in the trenches.

Btw there's apparently a huge wave of cyberattacks on the british healthsystem computers. The hackers ask for money.


What a bunch of bastards, if their actions actually cause the death of someone in the british hospitals I hope that UK and USA will unleash hell on the dark web.

Heard a few people wondering what if its a state sponsored attack and is that an act of war? God knows what we do if we trace it back to Russia, on the plus side if it does trace to Russia it will force an increased budget not this 5 billion over 5 years (not going to last long is it)
