    Here's a clue, he supported a United States of Europe

    During a blazing row with De Gaulle in 1943, on the eve of D-Day, to make the point that the UK would always turn to the US and Roosevelt for support in liberating Europe, not De Gaulle and the French.

    The article in the Saturday Evening Post that the first 4 sentances were taken from was entitled "The United States of Europe"

    1930 was a long time ago.

    You know before the Germans decide to murder 6 million innocent people because they did not fit the profile.

    Before the Spanish civil war

    And the greek civil war

    And the Italian civil war

    In fact it would probably be fair to say that Europe in 1930 was a completely different place than Europe in 1950.

    So it would also I imagine be fair to say that people's views and attitudes may also have changed.
