Actually with the war over, and films of the war no doubt, public approval of the beasts would drop drastically. I imagine "Monkey Luddites" would become more than the butt of jokes once the need for hulking, monstrosities fell away.

Over? Oh no my friend...its just getting STARTED. There's a full YEAR between Goliath and the treaty according to the Manual of Areonautics...enough time for German to rise up and lay waste like the awesomely mechanical nation it is.

Yes, but not enough to create human fabs.

I really want to red DF so I can write a fanfic based on it where the people aren't too happy with what's going on.

They already aren't. In the words of Dr. Halsey; "Desperate times will make people accept ANYTHING. Its when the threat goes away that you have to prepare for."

In my opinion, it's becuase the winners of history write the books.  If Germany had won WW1, then the allies would be bad.  I don't believe Germany should be the bad guys, but what I said is true.

I've been holding off on that reference because I haven't played the game yet, but that's my point, more-or-less.

Close...but not really. That's MY Dr. Halsey from DF, albeit she's based heavily on Halo Halsey since they have pretty much the same job.
But the qoute's similar to her thoughts, yes.

Well if your Halsey is facing court-martial, then I might not have to do much.

Court-martial? She faces execution. As do all of DF at one point.
And then the Bloshivek Russians invade and they get a second chance.

Does the Bolshevik revolution take place during the course of DF? Well, nevermind, spoilers. I'll read it and see if I think it's necessary for me to write a companion piece.
