But have you noticed just how similar in some ways the US can be to the UK.
...whereas your Clinton will take relief of any tart in a black dress!
the USA didn't enter the WW2 until Pearl Harbour was bombed in 7th December 1941 and F.D. Roossevelt declared war on 8th December 1941.Just like the WW1, they didn't enter it until 1916 !!
The French didn't take part - they were occupied.
Blake and Make it Lady, yes I agree and it was the UK that won the 2nd Worldwar which they entered when it actually started on 3/9/1939 but as history tells us all that:as history tells us all that:The USA didn't enter the WW2 until Pearl Harbour was bombed in 7th December 1941 and F.D. Roossevelt declared war on 8th December 1941.Just like the WW1, they didn't enter it until 1916 !!
But if we hadn't kept you Brits in supplies from '39 - '41 - loosing sailors and ships in the process - the war would have been over before before we had to finally bail you guys out.
As an ex british soldier, i worked closely with the us forces, up untill maggie and ronnie, it was great to work with the us troops, as we wore a noticably different uniform, and worked in a different fashion to the american troops.the british soldier was respected the world over, and not seen as an occupier, (and true occupiers are never welcome)and always tried to make friends, right down to having cups of tea with the locals, ( that all stopped when we started getting acid tea instead of water in ulster )Then our tactics and aims seemed to change, agressive patrolling, wearing kevlar helmets, (same as us troops ) and not our familiar beret, ive also noticed a dissolving of discipline and standards in general of the army, its about time we became the uk defence force and stopped fighting wars for nothing, bring our young people home and let them live a healthy long life, we need the public behind our troops, also the media, instead of all the negative press that our service men and women dont deserve (jump jet chicken is one example )and for god sake dont break our ties with the US, we should have joined the states and not europe, were closer to washington than Hawaii is, if the us had not given us logistic support in 2 world wars, i dread to think what language we would be speaking, i for one am glad of our special relationship with the us, i just wish the air fare was lower !
Alright but only the Americans have ever dropped an Atom Bomb and not forgetting that's why they won't bomb Iran as it is a nuclear state. I don't sgree with that anyway.Not only do the Americans have the most Nuclear warheads/missiles in the world and like some other countries who have never hadthe IAEA (UN nuclear investigators) as they've not signed up theagreement namely Israel, US, UK
I'm merely trying to keep the facts straight.
