Ya know... I have to agree with Peter on this one. I was all set to react
to this thread and stopped myself before I sent my reply. Enough!
But let me say this:
If it weren't for the US England may not be here today... for that matter
maybe not the US either in the long run. Sooner or later the US would have
had to face the Axis. Without England and the fortress that England
represented the war with the Axis would have been fought on US soil instead
of at a distance as it was. D-Day might not have happened and we might all
of us be speaking German and there'd be a damn sight more swastikas around
Point being: The Axis would not have been put down without cooperation from
ALL the allies. French, English, New Zealand, US, Australian and many more
than my tired brain can come up with right now.
WWII is over and at least theoretically the same allied countries are still
friends. The terroristic threat affects us all.
As far as doing things to piss people off? The US *CERTAINLY* has no
monopoly there. The British, French, Germans, Spanish, Italians and
Russians just to name a few have certainly had a history of imposing their
will on others when it suited them. Or meddling in the internal affairs of
others to impose their own agenda.
Before you point a finger at someone else, remember there are four more
pointing back at you.
