    Maybe amen. But not before it is said that the discussion was a bit inaccurate 
    up to now. Allow me only two short statements:
    If Churchill had taken Hitler's and Darlan's obligations (never to use the 
    French fleet against GB) seriously in the situation of the year 1940, he 
    would have been a shithead and malefactor simultaneously. What would have 
    been worse?
    But Darlan and the French Navy fulfilled this obligation to the last iota, 
    even after Mers el Kebir. Toulon 1942 proves it.
