3) If they have the missle technology...they may be able to hit Europe. I say who cares. The ungrateful S.O.B.'s deserve it. Then they will come running to us to pull their asses out of the fire, like we did in the last 2 World Wars. If not for the U.S. they'd all be speaking German right now. (We didn't do it alone, countries like Australia...who still believe in right and wrong were there to help also) But these Socialist Weeneies, haven't learned a thing from history about appeasing.

I've been trying to think of a tactful way that I can respond to the 'ignorance' of the last two posts. But, i'm just going to smile and inform you of how the majority of those people do not deserve to be blown off of the face of the Earth and for you to say such a thing is truly disturbing and all it does it put you on the 'terrorists' level....hmmm I don't even know if I could give you that much credit or not.

The US did not join WW1 until 1917, and by then Germany was on it's last legs.
The US did not join WW2 proper until 1942, three years after the Nazis began invading places.
It was actually the USSR who could be singled out as saving Europe's arses.
What the Yanks did for it's sacrifices and battles alongside the allies was a sideshow in comparison to what the Soviets did.
In WW2, the allies were not just the US and Australia, but Britain, USSR, Free French, Free Polish, Free Dutch, Norway, Denmark, Belgium, Morrocans, Indians, Pakistanis, Canadians, Australians, New Zealanders, Fiji and more and then the Americans in 1942.
You talk of appeasement, well if it was not for Roosevelt appeasing Stalin, or as Roosevelt fondly called him, "Uncle Joe", Europe would not have been partitioned East and West like it was.
Churchill warned Roosevelt about Stalin, but Roosevelt favoured good old "Uncle Joe" Stalin over Churchill.
Roosevelt on that subject was America's Neville Chamberlain.
So, what was that about appeasing again?
You have alot to learn about Europe if you think it is Socialist.
You have alot to learn full stop.
