Korky, just as it is fun for Pac and I to wax romantic about the US and Imperial Japan joining forces as brothers against the Morgana threat, I'm sure the siren call of a rational Third Reich is strong for you. Sadly, by 1939 I can't imagine a scenario where even the Morganas could loose Hitler's grip on absolute power in Germany. He was already Supreme Commander of the military with oaths made by all flag staff to him personally. History shows that his plans for lebensraum and the resultant implications for the USSR were not a matter of reason. If anything, to my mind the Morganas would just be seen as another reason for a continental power to move while the oceanic powers are distracted. I'm open to opposing argument but I think "extreme mode" is the German default without a stiff dose of Deus ex machina.
