Unfortunately since moving to the USA I have begun to see why Americans (broad generalization here) SEEM to think that they were the only country outside of Britain involved in WWII ... (and other wars)

The media (including the history channel etc) focus solely on US involvement with never a mention of Aussie, Kiwi, Canadian, Indian, Russian (yes they were an ally at one point) Malaysian etc etc etc troops.

( I did hear that N.Z. lost more men per capita than the other Allies in WW II - but cannot verify that one myself.)
Few people remember that there were other nations with troops in Vietnam, Korea, etc

I guess my point is that America seems to be very inward looking and tends to be distrustful of people from other nations. That's my take on it from Ohio : )

Nowadays? We were certainly part of the world when we were fighting in
Europe!

Simply not true.
I've seen all these on the History Channel (The Ghurkas come to mind) and
additionally, the red-tail squadron, and the Nesei.

Does anyone seriously propose that we are unaware that the Russians were
our allies in WWII??

Hardly.
I cannot explain about our media policies other than to offer that they are
increasingly foreign owned.  The ABC network forbids patriotic emblems,
Murdock (sp?) and Fox, Reuters, etc. All a bunch of self serving bung holes
in most of our minds.

We embrace and idolize John Wayne/Clint Eastwood/Charles Bronson mentality
and feed the children of those who practice genocide on us. We protect the
religious beliefs of some very unsavory types on principle alone.

The real facts of the matter are that we tend to think of our allies as
"us", probably because we have intermarried to a great degree. Has it really
made any difference to anyone that a short while back you made your home in
a foreign country? We don't even require you to speak our language to join
our society!

Our treaties are written in blood and our loyalties are best shown in the
worst of times. In spite of the hostilities shown to our nuclear powered
vessels, we will defend the land down under should the need occur.

Ask Jane Fonda if we forget....

Its suprising about the foreign ownership of the media.

"Has it really made any difference to anyone that a short while back you made your home in a foreign country?"

That statement got my blood boliing - more because of what got me here and what is devolving from that situation. Suffice it to say I was lured into moving here by lies and deception - and came here reluctantly on the understanding it would be temporary.
Hence I am stuck here for a few years and willing to throw away negative observations caused/obtained by a bad living situation.

You bought up a number of things (some agreed some disagreed) ... but I don't wish to reply and cause any hard feelings between people on the List - and its got WAY WAY too far off topic really.
