Your profile reflects your reputation, it will build itself as you create new debates, write arguments and form new relationships.
Do not act like you have a degree in history. It is apparent that you have obtained all your information from second-rate historical documentaries and your own personal hunches. You haven't the slightest clue about Armaments Minster Albert Speer and his relocation of German war industry, this is what made the Allied bombing highly un-effective against armaments facilities. You may now argue the issue of morale and German workers casualties; however, the Nazi propaganda machine led by Josef Goebbles saw to it that the majority of the civilian population was sufficiently indoctrinated to resist the propaganda value of Allied bombings in their entirety.
Now you are also making an attempt at arguing that the Allied supreme leaders, including FDR and Churchill, knew nothing whatsoever about the strength of Nazi Germany in Relation to Imperial Japan. This is simply preposterous. May I remind you that Germany was very close to complete domination of Europe. This was the primary threat. Additionally, the German Whermarcht employed revolutionary tactics and strategy. This, along with very advanced weaponry made them a seemingly unstoppable force. The German military High Command was also very keen on developing ''wunderwaffe'' or wonder-weapons. Some of the more known ones are: The King Tiger, The ME-262, The V-1, V-2 and V-3 series of revenge weapons, Seran Gas, and the most dangerous of these weapons, a nuclear type device. There are some eye-witness accounts of an actual test of one of these nuclear devices near the Baltic coast. This is corroborated with tests from the alleged sight. This of course cannot be definitively proven, but it is a possibility. The leaders of the Western Allies knew the threat of German Super-weapons was great, this was spurred on by a letter from Albert Einstein to FDR warning about the Nazi nuclear programme.
As for the Japanese, the facts you state are also preposterous. Yes, the A6M was a very good fighter, but by late 1942, the Allies deployed fighters capable of besting the Zero in a dogfight. Namely, these were the F6F Hellcat and the F4U Corsair. The Japanese navy was relatively large, but the Royal Navy was significantly larger, and the American and Canadian navy's were in a massive expansion programme. Japan could simply not compete with this.
Japanese strategies and tactics were also out-dated, Banzai charges against .30 caliber machine guns are a big no-no in military thought. The Japanese tanks such as the Ha-Go, were inferior even to the Sherman, and production could not hold a candle to that of the US, or USSR. May I also remind you that the USSR and Germans were fighting almost exclusively on one front from 1941-1943. The battle of Kursk took place in the Summer of 1943 and was a decisive Soviet Victory. Your claims are completely false.
Remember, the USSR and Japan fought it out in 1939. The Soviets were victorious.
And would you like to back up your claims? It will be impossible because they are largely false.
Supporting Evidence: The USSR could have won. (rt.com)

I don't think this one was too bad. I did a pretty good job.
I would have to disagree. What if Soviets refereed to the USA as just California, or New York? Wall street was essentially one of the main belligerents on behalf of the US in the Cold War. Furthermore, in the USSR, remember the massive Kazakh SSR. They contributed much to the Union.
