In neutral

Paddy O'Brien states that in remaining neutral in World War Two, Ireland had refused to do anything to help "those being slaughtered by the Nazis".

He implies that we should have been in there from the moment (to use Mr O'Brien's words) "Hitler launched his great war against humanity".

Perhaps Mr O'Brien could enlighten us as to what point Dev should have declared war on Hitler. When did Hitler's war begin? Was it the Rhineland occupation (1936), Austria (1938), Czecho-slovakia (1938/39), Poland (1939) or at what other point?
