Churchill on Germany, Before the War

"Germany is too strong. We must destroy her." 1936.............So, before the Poland and Czechoslovakia invasions and after the Soviet atrocities in Ukraine, THIS was what Churchill was worried about (and, please, keep in mind here that Poles and Czechs were LESS free after the war than they were before it)?

IMO, Churchill was on the cusp between old Victorian empire and
modern times. British colonialism
was a bone of contention between
he and FDR all through the war, and often as not, Churchill's strategy was based on such, rather
than defeat of the enemy; the stance taken by the US staff.

Germany was a direct threat to the British Empire.

Hitler was still a damn psychotic tyrant that ultimately had to be stopped. Yes, eastern Europe under the Soviets was severely oppressed and Stalin was a brutal dictator as well as murderer. It is now water over the dam but Patton and MacArthur may have been right.

And as such, how it ended up turning out, was that the WW2 era was a very successful war of expansion, conquest, and elimination of undesirables (worst mass murder in history) for the Russian socialist state.
