I mean he wants the Mediterranean as his private lake but with the Morganas running loose, the Brits have the only ways into the Med. He and Italy should know that if the Brits don't hold Gibraltar and the Suez, Italy is done for. It'd be beneficial to agree to something Mussolini and Italy weren't too enthusiastic to go to war to begin with. A proper external threat will give them a good excuse to stay neutral from start to finish. Mussolini can polish his ego fighting Morganas. 3 minutes ago, DrYuriMom said: Korky, as much as I will agree that Churchill has a chequered past (pun intended), I still laud him as the single most important person of the 20th century. Without him, Britain would have sued for peace with the collapse of France and Hitler could have taken the USSR with only token forces to the north and west and with a Luffwaffe full of planes that hadn't been frittered away over English skies. Rarely do you have a moment where history pivots on one man, but in May 1940 it happened. I agree. I just disagree with you on how close he became prime minister. Because the british were aware of it too. In some way at least. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
