Jon dusted off his hands absently, started toward the town.

"The way I hear it told, if not one man, then another. The political climate, the national morale - it was one big boiling pot. We act like we were all somehow better because we didn't go as far as they did, but we weren't much better to the groups of people we considered inferior. Besides, it wasn't just Germany now, was it? There was the other side of the war to think about, the Pacific Theater."

Jon thought back to all of the lectures he'd gone through, first at the Academy, then further on as he went up for his bronze oak leaves, then for his silver oak leaves, the history of war, the causes of war.

"Look at the people now, who'd sell us out to the Goa'uld or the Ori or whoever else is big and bad and scary the comes along. Are they monsters, or are they afraid? No one wakes up in the morning and decides to be wrong and bad and evil. Whatever they're doing - they think it's right or justified, somehow. But in the end it's madness, and it takes hindsight to realize it."

He glanced over his shoulder as he hiked up toward town.

"How will people look at us, decades from now, centuries from now, and the number of times we almost brought destruction to Earth, for opening Pandora's box, for daring to raise our heads in the wider galaxy, for making the System Lords remember us?"

He thought of Emmett Bregman and the man's documentary, the questions he asked, the ones that didn't have a good answer.

William followed the others into the outskirts of town.

"That's an age old question Doc. How do entire nations get drug into conflicts that were started by a select few?"

He took a look around the town that so far was less damaged than one would suspect for 1944 Germany. If one looked, they could see signs that the nation was suffering as the War dragged on.
"Guess we've been fortunate to live where the effects are less pronounced."


Jon's comments took the conversation to a deeper level.
"Hopefully our actions are seen to be beneficial to the world on a whole."

 "I didn't realize I was working with such a pair of thinkers, you know to me that becomes a rather insightful moment." Daniel waffled on in his usual way. Some say Sam could Geek the leg off a chair in discussion of all things science, the truth was when Jackson started talking you set your watch to snooze easily. "We can only hope. If we turn this around I think the Goa'uld as a collective needs to be brought down a peg or three simply for not watching over their own. That it was one of their own that warned us, says how far apart they are within their own kind."

"Ah.." He said as they suddenly found themselves standing on the opposite side of the road to Herr Schneider's bakery. "He's open at least. Let me check his description before we go blundering in." Daniel retrieved a piece of paper from his pocket, read it quickly then stuffed it back from where it came. "Mid forties, reddish sandy wavy hair, he has a deep scar under his left eye and stands about five feet seven. Fair complexion and rather large ears?" In his mind he was trying not to imagine a gnome. "Since we're all in this together, Jon you can lead on this one, besides technically I'm merely an observer aren't I?" He wasn't about to do all the work himself, someone else has to earn their pay.

Jon committed their contact's description to memory.

"As long as our contact speaks English I'll take the lead," he said.
