    Yea well maybe Germany and Japan shouldn't had started invading other countries to murder and rape people.

    If people don't like getting firebombed by the US, then don't fuck with us.

    I think what he is trying to point out. Is that since WWII America has been unwilling to fight a war to win. We fire bombed cities in WWII not because we are blood thirsty assholes that wanted to kill Civilians. We did it because we did not want to lose. Period.

    The wars since WWII are more police actions, thank God.
    Kudos to Pubs for screwing up the League of Nations and Isolationism, deregulation and lack of enforcement that led to the stock market crash, THAT Great Depression, and the rise of military dictatorships that we let run wild. After the war, blind allegiance to the military/industrial complex and ANYONE who was anti-communist. ALWAYS off the wall....:eusa_angel: There ya go! LOL

    Even though the US was supposed to be ***NEUTRAL****, fucking FDR was behind the scenes fighting Japan in Indochina by proxy.


    Then in order to provoke Hirohito , FDR froze his assets and refuse to sell them oil.

    FDR knew that Japan was going to attack Pearl Harbor but did nothing in order to unite Americans in his effort to join WWII and assist the UK.
