Notice how I'm arguing from a postion of logic and fact, and you're doing nothing more than hurling insults? No, they could not have. BECAUSE. THEY. WERE. PLANNING. ON. INVADING. THE. SOVIET. UNION. LATER. THAT. YEAR. Hitler had been openly talking about invading the Soviet Union since the 1920's, when he wrote Mein Kampf. He'd been putting it into actual practice since at the very latest 1939 when he told his generals to begin planning operation Barbarossa. HITLER LITERALLY STARTED WWII AS A MEANS TO SET THE STAGE FOR THE INVASION OF THE SOVIET UNION. Again, the entire Western Theater was little more than a means of securing his flanks and rear prior to launching his real objectives, which was to launch the bulk of his forces into Russia, subjugating what he saw as inferior Eastern people's many of them Jewish, and repopulate those fertile farming areas (As the Nazi Party literally started as a grass roots Nationalistic movement based on agriculture) with Germanic peoples. It's purpose was to make England submit without having to invade. Hitler knew that England was not France. It wasn't Poland. Churchhill was none of the other leaders of Europe. The English, were not like other people within Europe. He could not just land in England, attack, and even if he did win while taking massive casualities, leave a token holding force, regroup in Europe and still have the power to invade the Soviet Union. He knew he couldn't simply break the English in General or Chruchhill specifically with invasion alone, that he would have gotten the majority of his forces bogged down indefinently in England trying to hold it, and on top of all of that, he still thought he could reach a friendly agreement with the English. An invasion of England by the Germans, successful or not, would have ended the offensive capabilities of the Germans for the rest of the war. The war was not in any way about England. Western Europe, North Africa, all of it was really just peripheral to invading the Soviet Union, something Hitler had been obsessed with since he was in prison.
