Look up what Winston Churchill did to make sure WW2 happend.
Look up what little effect we (America) had on WW2. It was the Russians that won that war with the blood of 28 million of its people. We lost about
500 thousand, not because we were that good but because the Germans had there hands full with the Russians.
(1) And that would be?
(2) And the Japanese were just an ol skip in the park?
Our job in WW2 in the European theatre was mosly strategic bombing and
supplying the machines and logistics for the western front. We gave them hell
no doubt about it. The Nazi though had almost all of there forces on
the eastern front, look up what really happened. The Russians sent the Nazi
back from Moscow all the way to Berlin. The Russian dont call it WW2 they call
it, The Great Patriotic War. This is because they lost 28 million men If we were
to lose that many people, I dont think we have the fortitude for something
so bloody. Think about the thousands that are hospitalized for life, let alone
the wounded and the dead.
The Pacific theatre of war was a differnet story. That was sort of our version
of what the Russians experienced but was still on a smaller scale.
Another thing is the Pacific theatre didnt have to happen. We had naval
blockades that kept that island nation from getting there imorted supplies
they deperatly needed because they are an Island nation. That was why they
attacked Pearl Harbor, they could not go on for too much longer without
falling as a nation. They needed to get the supplies going again so they took
the war to us, in order to get the blockades off there doorstep. We forced
them to attack us. FDR wanted it this way so we could get the American
People (who didnt want war) to get behind the war effort and go help
Look up the statistics, and the real history, not the propaganda that
was produced. We were great, but the Russians are the ones that knocked
the Nazi war machine back to Berlin. The world bankers wanted this war
mainly because the Nazi went around the world banks system and
was printing there own money and backing it with Nazi gold. Churchill was
forced by these bankers to declare ar on the Nazi because of this. Not
because of the Blitzkreig it was all about control through money.
