This has been a very complex month. The diplomacy involved in declaring war on Great Britain involved war with
four nations. One of these was our good ally China. The US had to offer them peace, which China accepted, and then
she offered us an alliance again. China also declared war on Great Britain and France, and in the process both the
US and China ended at war with Italy. This was a side effect and both China and the USA have offered Italy peace.
There was no conflict between Italy, the USA, and China. The Soviet Union did not stop their advance in Korea, but
they did stop short of Seoul. Why they pushed deeper into Korea is a mystery.
China took Hanoi from the French, and advanced to contact with the British. The United States made war on France and
Great Britain across the world. We are not sure of the political stance of these western nations, and if they seek
allies it could be with the Axis, or the Soviets.
Canada was invaded, and Halifax, Quebec, and the far northern port are still under British control. British holdings
in South America are under pressure, troops in Liberia are on the move, Jamaica has been bombed. This is really a
world war. The Royal and French navies were attacked where found.
