Stanley Kubrik

This is not a ‘Union’. It is a Take-Over dressed in blue-pinstripe.

Arrogance & Ego with ignorance and deceit leading to..

Raymond Poincare [a forceful personality] Who - hated the ‘German’s’ and who had the power over the French prime minister, command of the politics and over the French military, conspired with the Russians to piss off and push the ‘German’ command and corner them up against their own 18th century ego’s and emotional lack of elegance of control – That started WW1. ['After Germany declared war on France on 3 August, Poincaré said: "Never was a declaration of war received with such satisfaction".] 

And then the French against {passive} British concerns, Banged forward into 'Cement' The Treaty of Versailles - That overly punitive and foolish treaty cause'd the situation that lead to the affecttation of the voice of German protest coming out of Hitler's mouth and that then got supported by a German democratic impetus to form the very strong, and re-armming that led to a retaliation that became WW2.
