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
nowadays.

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.

I will say, and this is my last off topic post, and do not take offence at
this, it is not disrespecting the Americans who died in WW2.

Hitler was probably one of the greatest allies of the United Kingdom in WW2.
I know this sounds weird, I know lot's of you yanks are probably going to
shoot off your mouths before you look in to this, but have a read through
some "GOOD" history books on the subject of Hitler's attitude towards the
UK.

Justin.

That is undoubtedly the most stupid statement that I have ever read in my
entire life.

This may get me dropped from the list but I don't care, it needs to be said:

I'll be more than happy to 'shoot off my mouth'. You, sir, are are an
ignorant ingrate. I would hope that your countrymen would be ashamed to
count you among their ranks. Talk to any Brit over 40 and you'll get a huge
wake-up call. Please remove your head from your a$$ before you bother to
post such crap again.


James: My apologies for venting my rage. Please, ban me if you must. I hope
I've done nothing than than calling things the way I see them. Some things
just go 'beyond the pale'.

Regards to you (but no regard whatsover for Justin), Bob
