"WWII- America sent in a couple of paratroopers when
war was about to finish"
ARE YOU KIDDING ME!? lmao man! A couple paratroopers when the war was about to finish?! LOL! America was attacked by Japan December, 7th, 1941. The
war ended in 1945. The war began in 1939. Yeah, the war was really over! lol..get your facts straight dude. Hm..whats that day I am thinking of? That
day where over 150,000 American troops stormed the beaches in...hmm..whats it called again? Oh yeah, Operation Overlord - D-Day. The beginning of the
end for the Nazi Regime. Yeah, its more than a "few paratroopers" Four years of fighting compared to six doesn't seem like too much of a
difference. Get your facts straight buddy, before making yourself look like a complete idiot. General Dwight D. Eisenhower - considered one of the
best generals EVER, led that attack. Yeah, the U.S. contributed greatly to the fight. "A country like Nigeria" Yeah..sure buddy, whatever you say.
Where do you live? If you live in the U.S., your a sorry excuse for a citizen, because you obviously no nothing about how our economy works. It works
WAY differently than the likes of Nigeria or "other African countries" Do your homework before taking the test, buddy.
The country that probably gave the most was the USSR, totally a number of 12 million military casualties, and 17 million civilian casualties during
the war. Hats off to them. And, to your comment about the U.S. not being the most powerful country in the world, lol, so who is? Britain? They would
be nowhere without us. Who? Russia? They are on the rebound, but, without the Soviet Union getting back together, they have nothing more than a bunch
of rogue, ignorant countries who hate eachother 24/7. Let us look at the stats of the U.S. The U.S. controls the world. Why? Because all countries
that mean anything in this world are compared to the U.S. Dollar. Money = everything nowadays. You control the money, you control society. And yes,
the U.S. dollar is the standard in the world. The English language is the biggest 2nd taken language in the world (For example, you are Chinese, you
are most likely to know fluent English) The Technology: Yes, the most advanced at the present time. Ever heard of the Star Wars System? Able to shoot
missiles out of the sky within seconds of finding them via sattelites in the sky? Yeah, lets see your "powerful country" do that? Sure, buddy, keep
thinking what you want, but, in the end, even other countries admit the U.S. is the biggest boy on the block. Any country will admit that, love us or
hate us. Germany will, France will, Russia will, AFRICA will, any of 'em.
Yes, the U.S. does lack in the education department. I will give you that. BUT! That can be fixed. And is being worked on. You just got ripped a new
Oh, and in case you want proof for all D-Day stats, look here:
Have a nice day.
EDIT: "u guys sucked"
Sucked? Sucked at what? We were pushed out of Vietnam, not because of their military strength, but because that they knew the land, and, because the
M16A1 at the time kept getting jammed - unfortunately it was the standard infantry rifle at the time. The M4A1 solved that problem. Sucked? What else
did we lose? lol, not too much. Lets look at the track record, here buddy.
Revolutionary War - U.S. defeated Britain (Who was the most powerful country in the world)
1 - 0
Civil War - North vs. South. The Union won that war, but that was a bad war, does not count.
1 - 0
What comes next? The war of 1812 I suppose? U.S. defeated Britain again.
2 - 0
What is next? Mexican-American war. Spanish controlled Mexico was defeated by the Union of the United States of America, in 2 years. The Mexican's
suffered an embarrassing defeat to a "weak country"
3 - 0
Hmm..next comes the 1900's. WW1. Nazi's first attempt at world domination. This was an Ally victory (U.S. were allies) U.S. didn't contribute much
to this war, but still helped out for a few years.
4 - 0
WW2: U.S./Britain/Russia were key players here. A tough war, six years long. Allies, again, win against the Axis powers.
5 - 0
Next: Korean War. Can't be considered a victory nor a loss. The U.S. stepped in on the South's side during their fight vs the Communist North. The
South ended up staying the same, same with North. No one wins here. U.S. returned home, N.K. loses power, Communism is on the downfall.
6 - 0
Next: Vietnam. What can be considered the ONLY loss in American history. And some don't even consider it a loss or victory. The U.S. fell back after
realizing that they played (strategically) the war in the wrong way, hence losing man after man. Vietnam played the land good, even being the weaker
power militarily, they ended up holding off the U.S. for a loss/tie. Let's consider it a loss for your sake.
6 - 1
Next: Grenada/Panama conflicts. Not very big, but the U.S. easily defeated the opposing forces here.
8 - 1
Next: Gulf War 1. Saddam Hussein's regime invades Kuwait. The U.S. steps in, defeats Hussein's regime without too much problem.
9 - 1
Next: Somalia. The most famous of this conflict being the popular "Black Hawk Down", we we're, by the U.N. to send aid to Somalia. We did, Somalia
refused the aid. The black hawk down incident, technically, should be considered victory, because the roots of the mission, getting the warlord,
suceeded, but a dozen or so U.S. Rangers/ Delta Force lost their lives for the victory. In general, it was considered a loss because Rangers/Delta
"leave no men behind" In their eyes, it was a loss, in the U.N./U.S.'s eyes, it was no result, because the U.N. officially ended aid to Somalia,
and the U.S. was simply following its' orders.
Still 9 - 1
Next: Balkans' Incident. President Bill Clinton pushed for U.N. support for this action. U.N. approved, U.S. stepped in to defeat the regime their.
Not too much of a problem, another victory.
10 - 1.
Finally, "Operation: Iraqi Freedom" We all know the story to this one, whether or not it is conspiracy. Either way, it is a U.S. victory. Saddam
Hussein is apprehended, U.S. victory.
11 - 1.
Wow, buddy, a good track record. lol Obviously we didn't "suck" Another one, get your facts straight before saying something ignorant, OK?
Have a nice day
