Actually, Jeremy, America is more successful at a lot of things, including pulling other nations' butts out of the fire in wartime.

With the help of Russian (!), Polish, Canadian, Brittish, soldiers from several other nations. After all, it was a World War. During World War II, the United States began to provide significant military supplies and other assistance to the Allies in September 1940, through a Lease-Lend deal, even though the United States officially only entered two years into the war, after the attack on Pearl Harbour. The USA formally maintained neutrality up until that moment. The American public generally resisted involving the United States in the European conflict.

But hey, nobody is complaining, also since the USA is now being led by the nose to a new war that Saudi Arabia wants your country to start on their behalf.

Cheers,
Bart

Which is it, Bart? Make up your mind.

Which part of "indigenous" do you not understand?

Well, Americans did save you 70 years ago.

No, the allies did. It's enormously disrespectful to a lot of people and several nations to continuously claim superiority in this regard. In fact, most wars that the US seems to enter on its own behalf do not seem to end well for them.

I am not sure what that has to do with anything under discussion.

But really, my question is this. Do you regret doing so? Was it a mistake? Would you have preferred a different outcome?  ;)

As I said, she is not an indigenous Indian, but has some distant traces of an ancestor who was. Which apparently means a lot to you, for some reason, since you brought it up (and apparently were referring to Sen. Warren, so much is clear now).

No, no, Bart. You don't understand. She's not an "Indian" at all, "indigenous" or otherwise.. 1/1024% native something or other pretty much is general throughout the population. YOU might be 1/1024% "indigenous" for all you know.

No, Robert. And it looks as if we may have to do it again if y'all keep on the way you're going. ;D ;D

Looks like this guy sidetracked it from the OP subject:


Yawn. Yes, Alan, we know America is Practically Perfect In Every Way. No need to remind us every post.

Only problem with that is that the Russian, Polish, Canadian, British, Chinese, etc., etc., etc. were losing. The most important thing the US brought to the fight was the ability to produce the materiel it took to win. You guys need to go back and read Churchillís second world war series.

Yes, I remember the Chinese army marching through Paris.

Face it, it was Russians and Americans that saved your sorry asses. Dutch contribution was to unscrew air valves on German soldiers' bicycles.

As a former Dutchman I need to vehemently object to your misrepresentation of historic facts. >:( And you can't blame me; I was only 2 years old when WWII ended. >:(

I can't blame you Franz. You were too young to unscrew air valves.  8)
