  • The called for the destruction of Nazi Germany

This is not true; the language reads, After the destruction of the Nazi tyranny, which in diplomatic language does not call for regime change. It only calls to ending Nazi tyranny in occuppied territories. Under this document, FDR & Churchill commit to allowing Nazi tyranny to remain in Germany under the guise of self determination, which occuried in the elections of 1932. IOW, FDR & Churchill were officially on record to allow Nazism to exist provided it remain within its own borders. Rob Smith 18:56, 12 September 2009 (EDT)

It's ambiguous maybe--but it does not say it will allow Nazi tyranny anywhere. Unconditional Surrender (regime change) became the goal at Casablanca.RJJensen 20:08, 12 September 2009 (EDT)
That's absolutely correct; the Atlantic Charter specifically did not state, After the destruction of the Nazi regime, meaning they were willing to live with it under the doctrine of self-determination. Rob Smith 17:27, 13 September 2009 (EDT)
