Australia requested our assistance and American lives were lost helping your country ward out the bees!


What?

America did not save Australia. We helped you. You helped us. They attacked you first.

And we defended ourselves. Also Japan said themselves that invasion was 'impossible'. America did not save us.

You have to understand this is what we're taught in school. The WWII era is very romanticized.

No I'm not claiming the US saved you all....

Conversely, what they do show is all that some ignore and or play down that the US did do. It might help if you actually learned what real contributions the US did do so as to gain a much greater understanding and command of the topic than just regurgitation of baseless rhetoric


I do not mean to do that at all. I have locked horns with some US Military on here and I was trying not to offend. I dont see how I have. DDay was awesome,it reminds me of what Aussies did at gallipoli ww1. I think history has overstated Americas importance.

I agree that perhaps and its actually likely that Germany would have continued to kick ass if it had not been for America entering the war.

But America is like the Star of the team that just won a hard game. He came of the bench and made the differnce. When they interview him all he does is go on and on about himself,and doesnt even mention his teammates. Like Iverson or something. We all helped each other. America tipped the scale. But Russia and Britan and other nations must endure America acting like they saved us. Its just not cool. We would have all helped you if Germany had a problem with you you know.

Lol this is the silliest thing I have ever herd !

Ah , who was involved in WWI and WWII ? Seems to me it was a European affair , no ?

And if I remember correctly it was North Amairica that came to there aid , no ? Yes , you can cry about the timing of the US all you want but you are dam lucky they showed up at all .

As for Canada , the other NA country , if I remember my history correctly they were over there helping right from the start . And if I remember correctly , Canada sent 1.1 million troops to fight in Europ .

Also , if it wasn't for the Amairica mussel during the cold war Europ could have ended up as part of the USSR

So , I think the real question is , should NA help out Europ in WWIII ?


Now , a dose of reality , these types of threads are plain stupid , IMHO and a slap in the face of past generations that did go through hard times and were thankful for the sacrifices made by all .

I hope to hell that Europe help the USA for sure.

No good will come of the Chinese ruling anything other than their own country.

As someone who has spent 13 months in China I can say that it is a horrible place to live, visiting may be ok but living is just poor. I was a guest of a company and my abode was very plush and the company treated me very well.
But, the Chinese people are another matter. I will not throw insults but they have yet to learn basic manners, spitting all over the place including elevators is common practice and among thousands of other things they have very little compassion for children. Compassion is not my greatest quality for sure but towards children I will make every effort.

I personally would rejoin the forces if it came to it as there is no way I am living side by side under Chinese rule.

To top it off their tv shows are very boring and not funny.

I wonder if the world would be less violent without American military bases all over the world; you know, bases in other people's countries.

You mean the bases they welcome?


Are you saying there is no animosity in these countries and throughout the world toward the US because of these bases?



Too bad we won't find out, since we won't be the ones to take the first step towards peace.

Like when Obama was on his around-the-world apology tour?


Because that is anything besides a dog and pony show? "Sorry for coming in and installing a new leader multiple times and encouraging corporations to rape your resources through cohersion by military and economic means. It's cool, right?"



...not to mention the economy runs off of the military, but that's a little too off topic.

Ridiculous! The GDP drives the economy…


What would happen to the GDP without the technicians, scientists, engineers, mechanics, machinists, transport personnel, administrative persons, laborers, and any other group or industry that supports the military or military pursuits. These people and the services and products they provide for military means play a large role in the economy..

Well I think your comment is just plain stupid but I would have kept it to myself.

You are off-topic btw.

The topic is should they help. Nobody is taking away from what America helped with. They didnt save anyone though. And its my opinion that Europe owes America nothing. I also think that a good chunk of Europe hate America. So I do not think its stupid at all. I think for you to suggest it is impossible is stupid. Moronic really

They are just doing their best. they have not got it as easy as America. They have to be careful. The standard of living will rise when they get the Reserve Currency.

China is not evil. They are not monsters. I am not scared of them.

You know Max is an older, well established respected member. I'd show him a bit more respect.

Simply because in his single post he shot your whole threads argument all to hell in fell swoop doesn't mean you should act out all butt hurt and childish....

So you are asking if Europe should help Amairica in some fictitious war and you speak of hate , the whole time you disregard history ?

One question for you , you wouldn't happen to be French would you ?

This post is seriously lacking in the token, ignorant American inflammatory statement! Therefore, I feel obliged to exclaim:

America...FUC* YEAH!!!

America is broke because we spent all our money on guns, bombs, jets, and TIE fighters. That being said...I DARE any other kangaroo-banging or rice-eating country to step up. Yes, our culture is abrasive, ignorant, and self-indulgent. Why? Because it can be. I would like add a Merican colloqialism to the conversation...PLAYERHATER. Don't hate us cuz you ain't us.

Note: I am not a total douche as it may appear by the above statement. It's just that...well...some American had to say it.

Why would I be French. Im pretty sure in the OP I said I was Australian. You didnt read it? Is that why you are off topic?

And the US Public was not behind the entering WW2 were they? Not until attacked.

Why should we care about you again?

Hell, I’ve been to quite a few of them; made some friends; had some good libbo! I didn’t encounter any animosity whatsoever. How many times have you been??

You’re talking about a few angry civilians! We have those here in US around US military bases.


That’s the cost of doing business. Look how many people hate Walmart!


Because that is anything besides a dog and pony show? "Sorry for coming in and installing a new leader multiple times and encouraging corporations to rape your resources through cohersion by military and economic means. It's cool, right?"


You said we never made an effort for peace…I proved you wrong! Now you want what...reparations?

These people and the services and products they provide for military means play a large role in the economy..


The same thing that would happen in any country because (this is a FACT people like you purposely ignore) as a percentage of GDP, US isn’t that much different in spending that many other countries!!



Considering the US is the SUPER POWER of the WORLD I’d say as a PERCENTAGE we get a lot of bang for our buck!

Stop drinking the left’s Kool Aid, bro!


EDIT: Don't be dazzled by the fancy colors...look at the % down the right side!

That is the problem.

You guys are like losers that lost all your money and have a drug habit. Nobody thinks you are the greatest.

You might be the biggest but China will challenge soon enough. You have the smell of death.

"Nations do not have friends, only interests."
-George Washington

Of course you don't "owe" the US anything. The only question will be, and always has been, is it in Australia's national interest to side with the US in a conflict. The past 60 some years it's been in the national interest for the "allies" to work together...in ww2 Japan would likely have been a poor steward of peace in the pacific.

God your views are flawed lol. You must live in the bubble where only YOU know whats really going on, right? Do know that intellect does exist outside of your "self". I am an American, have never once forced an opinion, or a life style on any other living being. The government I live under has, but I have not, I would not doubt in a heartbeat any other government in the world has. I also havent served in our military, so I am not encouraging this force of ideals/opinions. So before you go saying Americans have no self awareness, look at your self. From your smug little remark, it seems you believe only your little world is the right one, and you have all the facts.

Aren't you a bitter one. Your from Australia are you? Sounds like you should move to China and see how good and great they are before wishing they are THE world power.
