    You're right, West Germany sent a hospital ship, the "Helgoland", to treat vietnamese civilians, and the East German Stasi was apparently involved with the vietnamese communist government.

    Not only did Portugal had nothing to do with the Vietnam War, it also publicly opposed it (although it was more because of America criticising a similar war Portugal had in its African colonies).
    Here is an interesting paper about it:

    Yeah, I figured that out after googling the Vietnam war, the majority of European nations stayed out of Vietnam, guess I should've fact checked before posting.
    Still, I commend De Gaulle for trying to keep France out of the shit show that was the Cold War.
    I thought you were against British involvement in the EU.

    It kind of does, I mean, real life nazis are rarely like the propaganda posters, so... we're dealing with millions of people with feelings of inadequacy, who then seek to mass-project these on others.

    Nazism as a policy was more a typical "divide and conquer" mind-set, like these ideas often are. It's about power. The details of the ideology are just who to blame, where, how and why, the main point is the power gained by catering to people's weaknesses

    A local example

    Henry Rinnan, the tiny, unibrow jewish looking guy was one of the most notorious nazis in Trondheim, who murdered and tortured a lot of locals.
    He was observed and finally hand-picked by the Germans, after he had been sulking around in a cafe, angry at the world, and with immense feelings of inadequacy (having lost many jobs, as well as being bullied as a kid, for looking like a foreigner)

    I was very against it until I learned that 45% of our trade goes to Europe and about the huge scientific grants Brussels provides.

    Don't ruin it Crni. We were in our element staring at sexy Aryans and you crashed the party with some frigid Nazis.

    Fritz seems happy to have evaded capture and torture by dressing up as a woman, but Hans feels quite embarrassed and is asking himself whether it was truly worth it.

    Reminds me to this documentation, The Confederate States of America. Basically a, what if the South won the civil war in the US. In one scene, they show Abraham Lincoln fleeing to Canada, disguised as a black man. A black woman helping him says, well Mr. President, now we are both niggers.
    By the way, Abraham was a damn fine President. And Vampire hunter! How often do you get that combo? Well Roosevelt was also known to hunt Werwolfes - do you remember the game Nocturne?

    Alright, favorite politician, the based Józef Piłsudski. Stopped a massive attack from Lenin in the 1920s. There's a big photo of him in a Polski pub I go to.

    Has Nocturne aged well? I haven't played it since I was a kid long ago and thought of getting in it, but I don't want to kill the nostalgia.. you know how it is going to an old game and finding how poor it really is today...

    Totally.


    Context:
    A German family of right-wing conspiracy theorists are seeking refuge in Russia because Germany isn't a sovereign country but a company. We are not German citizens but employees of this company and allied occupation is still going on. Also we're being killed by vaccines and everyone is forcibly implanted with a control chip by the government.
    The family of 6, including two small children, stayed in a hostel for several weeks and are now residing in their VW bus because they ran out of money.
