    Just like the French… they do us one favor and then hold it over our heads for the next three Centuries.

    By the way.....what is "loosing and loosing badly" mean? You might have to feed me some food on that.
    the same could be said for the french and the british,, who knows.. perhaps they could have fought their way free.. with dumb dumb da fuher,, attacking russia,, anything was possible. so then what..

    considering the attack on pearl harbor,, ololol fact,, it was a secondary theatre much to the U.S navy's chagrin, if h i t l e r had not of declared war on the US, there was considerable movement in the US not to get involved in Europe. Something that Rosevelt actually considered. H i t l e r took that out of your hands by declaring war on the US.
    I do not nor will I ever say or think that what the US did during the 2nd world war was anything less then what the rest of the world did. You as a people fought hard and in the end were probably a good part of the reason Germany lost. However, to say that the rest of the Commonwealth and the world did not do their share was is wrong. I have heard some americans say that very thing, that you and you alone fought and won that war.. i might point out, and I lost family, that you were not alone over in Europe or in the Pacific.
    And as to the french, wellllll we have em here in Canada,, sooooooooo

    Yup....would have loved to have seen how the European Theater would have turned out without the aid of the United States. I'm glad we did as I don't think it would have turned out too well. I never said that many other countries (yes, including Canada) didn't help out, but I think if you pull the US out of the picture, it would not have been pretty. Just my opinion.....and by the way.....please keep them thar French in Canada.
