“I have in this War a burning private grudge—which would probably make me a better soldier at 49 than I was at 22: against that ruddy little ignoramus Adolf Hitler … Ruining, perverting, misapplying, and making for ever accursed, that noble northern spirit, a supreme contribution to Europe, which I have ever loved, and tried to present in its true light.” - J. R. R. Tolkien in a letter to his son.

So, what you're saying, Tony...

If I understand you, is that J.R.R.T. really had Mordor in his heart towards Hitler (who *was* a Thorin in everyone's side, after all) and he would have Gondor great lengths to have sent Bomburs to Berlin to Beorn that chap to a Sindar?
