Anyhoo, still managed to pull your collective cojones out of fire. Otherwise I would need a German translation program to read your post......

The B-17 and then the B-29 were top notch bombers for WW2

So Britain gave us radar- I suppose at least they would have had a sporting chance at not getting microwaved then if we'd decided that nuclear conquest was more appealing than rebuilding the rest of the "first world", but I got a hunch we could have gotten our bombs through .
It's OK Britain, we love ya, and as soon as the ACLU bans the Stars and Bars, you'll have the best lookin flag on earth.

Err...Damn ACLU if only I had my way with them. Who gave the British and the French money after WWII to rebuild their infrastructure and economy.. do I hear a US of A.
Who gave Britain all of those military weapons ships vehicles and airplanes all for free during the war that's right the US of A did that too.
I’m not even going to mention the cold war ok.
So you see without the Us help after WWII Europe would have remained in rubbles.
But this is off topic we should stick with jets I apologize.
