Paul Reynaud--who became Prime Minister of France just prior to the German invasion--said in 1940:

"People think Hitler is like Kaiser Wilhelm. The old gentleman only wanted to take Alsace-Lorraine from us. But Hitler is Genghis Khan."

We suffer under layers of intellectual asymmetries that hinder us from an intuititive recognition of our enemies."
