When British forces withdraw in the face of overwhelming odds, the German propagandists sneer at us. But when the position is reversed, the Nazis whine and say: “It isn’t fair.”

When, with America’s great aid, our Air Force outnumbers and overwhelms the Luftwaffe, we shall hear the same sort of bleat. We shall be glad to hear it. A whining German is a beaten German.
