Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Upstate NY:
Over and over again, I've asked you the question, and you completely avoid it. What did the US gain by refusing to recognize Coratia and Slovenia? Answer that.

Actually, vladimir takes a stab at a reason:


As usual, there are clearly differences between public posturing (US declarations that they're against independence, for peace and what not) and the financial, military realities on the ground (who gets the arms & the money).

In effect, that recognition was withheld for some time for public relations reasons. It looked (to some group, for some reason) better if Germany went first. Plausible? Sure. True? Don't know.
