Those low life Germans would stoop to any subterfuge. A case of wire nails to Sweden from the US.. the same Sweden with great reserves of iron ore .. was found to have heavy lead heads that could be melted down to make bullets. And.. just recently, coincidentally, it was discovered that the neutral Sweden had allowed Germany to use their diplomatic lines of communications to pass messages. Sweden was not very well liked in the US at the moment and this would have been a story that produced no questions.

We were warned. So says a Senator from Illinois. Seems he thought Admiral Dewy had found his Nostradamus back a couple of decades before and nobody had noticed.... except the Senator...somewhat belatedly... it seems.

The profit would have come closer to being omniscient if he said Germany was going to take Paris and then work on conquering England in about 40 years.

US can draft them quick enough but giving all of them something to shoot with can't be done as fast.
