In response to:

If Only We Were More Like France

Just 1 point to make: I never understand as a Brit why you crow on about how you saved everybody, when you actually sat on your hands for years while evil fascism was combated by only us, Britain (size of Maryland) and a few other countries volunteers. Yes you made the difference, that is indisputable, but personally if we had sat by while slaughter was happening for years I'd be embarrassed not shouting about it like you. Luckily as a Brit I can hold my head, and my forefathers heads up with pride.

The Brit's butt was beaten, IF the USA had NOT entered WW1, they would have been fighting it for another 10 years; If the USA had NOT entered WW2 you would have been speaking German in Great Britain.

Well, you wouldn't understand that after the mess that was WWI, where we bailed your snobbish butts out and lost many lives, we were loath to have to do it again. The evil that you faced was not here and did not feel as threatening to our way of life until the Japs attacked. If your Chamberlain had had a spine, WWII might not have been necessary.
