But mate look how your oldest allies turned there back on you when you wouldnt back the invasion of Iraq, and started childish name calling and threats of resricting trade. You guys were getting worse press than al qaeda at the time, they even changed French frys to freedom frys ffs.
To this day there is a section of Americans who think France is one of the "trouble makers" that should be wiped of the map because of the bad press.
Historically Britain and France were enemys yet who came to your aid first both times Germany invaded? Did your oldest allies care France was being taken?
You see being allied with US`s is a one way street, do as they say or else.

It`s no wonder many Americans want to be isolationists, when they know people from other countries think of them in this light. Yes, I understand that our government pulled it`s allies into this mess it started, but, your governments didn`t have to jion us, they made that chioce. Why did they jion us? Because, they think in the same terms our government does. Pull out if it`s wrong, let our government face this alone. If we get our backsides kicked, then so be it. Lesson learned, I can only hope.

The funny thing is, the US is vilified for doing Europe's dirty work.
Iraq falling into Iran's control won't affect the USA nearly as much as it will wreak havoc on Europe's economy. the only oil source they'll have left is the soviet, I mean, russia.
all the best.

Again, you feel the need to come back and take more jabs at me. Do you know how to read? It makes me wonder if you do. What did I say at the end of my statement? "I don`t speak for the arrogant ones. I speak for only one, and he died in December 1944." I`ll break it down for you.
1. I don`t give a flying fat rats butt what others in this country may have said over the years about who may have won that war. Be it you, us, them, Sants Claus or the good fairy. It doesn`t matter anymore, and this not only goes for you, but for the arrogant ones in this country. Show some damn respect for those who died. Who cares who won it? It was freedom bought and paid for with the lives of thousnads of young men from all countries. Holding a grudge for 63 years from both sides only shows what little respect anyone has anymore for what these boys died for. Grow up and get over it, all of you, and get a life while your at it.
The only one taking personal "jabs" is you, and my points are about the general US consensus, when did i call you arrogant or say anything personal about you?
And as for "showing some damn respect", yes once more THATS MY POINT, equal respect for all instead of trying to steal victory as your (americas) own.
It would seem its you who could do with brushing up on your reading skills, but hopefully this will put an end to this back and forth because its getting very samey.
