Did you forget about who ended the war...by dropping this little firecracker?
Yeah, no big deal.
We just came in to claim the glory though.....
not like we were attacked at Pearl Harbor or anything to provoke it either.edit on 11-4-2014 by parad0x122 because: (no reason given)
Absolutely, I'm not in the LEAST bit proud that we were the first and only people to drop nukes.
But to even suggest that the US wasn't a significant part of the war is, for lack of better words, pretty ignorant.
Clearly the effort put forth was a joint effort by all involved.
It is more difficult to think of what you DIDN'T have a hand in.
First World War 1914–18
us involvement 1917-18
so.. just turned up at the end to claim credit??
Second World War, 1939–45
us joined in 1941... december....
so late to the party again.
Dday, storm only one beach. claim the whole war was won by them alone....

How about you getting a map of countries the US has invaded or would that not work to your advantage.
There is a big difference between being invited to a country and invading a country.
