I strongly disagree with you on the last point. We are talking about a completely imaginary "what if" scenario here. Any assumption is as good as any other for the simple fact that it's a question of imagination. Ignorance or knowledge about WW2 have nothing whatsoever to do with it.
If I, being a native German, can accept the topic and discuss it without calling people ignorant for no other reason than them disagreeing with me, why can't you?
Again, I ask: If that's what this topic is really all about, then what is it doing in the Science and Technology
forum? Why is it not in Misc.?
