and don't forget that the blitzkrieg has started after mayuri's speech,when both yamamoto and the vandenreich tought the war would have started in 5 days,then...plenty of time!
Yea, the VR told the war would start in 5 days. This is not an expectation, this is a declaration but I wouldn't act as if I had 5 days. This is a war afterall (and i am not talking about the ancient codes of war- And I can't imagine VR saying:"We said 5 days so we promised and we'll go 5 days later-which they didn't do), it is too naive to think the war will start in 5 days, act cool and take precautions according to that declaration. I would start taking immediate measures right away. The SS being caught that much unprepared made me think in this way.
