I agree that it was stupid, and i agree, after rising to power, he pretty much fucked up. Invading Russia was retarded, they were way too powerful for him. Hitler just seemed like a greedy douchbag. He wanted a German empire, and revenge for everything that happened in WW1. He was smart in taking advantage of everything, up until he started to invade other countries. He set fire to that building, i forgot what it was called, and them blamed it on communists, so he could get emergency power. It was obviously Nazi's who did it, he was smart not getting caught. But even before his power, he was an idiot, he got put in prison for treason. He was basically smart, but dumb too.
