    Another anecdote that never happened. Those tanks could not fire a shell 3 miles much less 7 miles. The site is nobiity.org. Anyone who wants a hoot, go to it. Frank wishes to create an America as rigid and government dominated as Stalin's. He just wants a right wing totalitarian dictatorship.

    Jake is projecting bigger than a Soviet towed artillery piece

    Rightwinger and Jake (as if they're two different people) have the honor of being the only 2 people to lose every single game of Rock, Paper & Scissors to a box of rocks

    FDR and Ike stopped Patton from: a) entering Berlin before Stalin and b) sent him on a wild goose chase to locate the non-existent German National Redoubt rather than liberate Prague and Vienna.

    ""Jake is projecting bigger than a Soviet towed artillery piece"

    CrusaderFrank, using phony material, is as crazed a totalitarian as his hero Stalin. He just has no power.

    The stupid comment above about FDR, DDE, and Patton is simply stupid.

    Well, to someone who knows nothing at all about WWII, it would seem "stupid"

    Yes, you have described yourself: you know nothing except a partisan ideology that is not rooted in the actual events.

    Does Jake not know that US Forces were held up from entering Berlin ahead of our Soviet "Allies"?

    Does Jake not know about the wild goose chase to locate the non-existent "National Redoubt"?

    I guess not

    I know that talks with FDR, Churchill, Stalin, and the military heads were held, and that since the Russians had suffered far worse casualties by several times of that of the British, Americans, and French, the Russians were allowed to fight the Battle of Berlin. They took half a million casualties, which Frank wishes the Americans suffered.

    The National Redoubt was a true concern at the time.

    Frank is very illiterate about these matters.

    Poor George Patton has been a dupe of the liberal media since he slapped that malingerer during WW2. The movie "Patton" was played practically for laughs by quirky actor George C. Scott and all Patton's excentricities were out there for all to see. Hollywood could have played MacArthur for laughs but they didn't. Instead they offered a serious actor like Gregory Peck to play it straight and stick to the script. No mention of the "dougout doug" sneers from the Troops or the fact that he lost an entire army within four months of WW2 hostilities. In all fairness MacArthur was well past his prime in WW2 and when he lost another army in Korea and ranted to the media about nuking Red China before he was finally relieved of duty by Truman. Still Hollywood relies on cliches rather than history.
