You know what.. these statements get dumber all the time :lol
As an Irish person, I hope you can repay me for interest for my ancestors building your rail networks and east cost cities in the 1800's
See how stupid it sounds?
I have no love or time for what the US did in WW2 Europe.. And most of the Hollywood war movies are sanctimonious propaganda that only serve destroy
historical fact in order to create more nationalist pride whilst forking in the dosh..
I do however big it up for stopping communism.. Its biggest feat IMO.. and one of the big reasons for that was I was alive (5 years old) when the
Berlin wall fell..
But if you guys wanna keep bringing up things that you did in the last millennium but brushing aside anything that was done in return, you are going
to live up to the image of the uneducated Yanks that ye are generalized as the world over..
The problem arises here.. and this quote from The Dark Knight says it all..
"You can die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain"
And that my friend is the US's problem.. You are only as good as your last deed and the last dozen major US deeds have been Empirical and
Catastrophic for Human Life..
So grow out of that whole WW2 thing, it will only serve to turn you into a joke..
