Sort of like how Japanese schoolbooks deny all atrocities and say that Nanking just sort of ... surrendered Laughing

By the way my Grandad worked in the factory depicted in Made in Dagenham! and that's a fact

Talking about ww2 with daft Americans is usually a bit more trying than it is with dumbarses from other countries. I get the impression that due to the cold war, tons of American schoolkids weren't told about the extent & significance of Russia's contribution (or something), I usually end up baby walking them through facts & figures. Maybe I'm giving them too much credit & they're just wilfully ignorant of anything the US didn't do


Sadly I think it's a case of the latter, the particular American I was arguing with dimissed everything before America's entry into the war as "just another war in Europe", he fled with his tail between his legs when I mentioned the conflict in North Africa, the Japanese encroachment on China and Canada and Australia's contribution to the war effort. I tend to stop posting on threads about WWII on discussion forums the moment some idiot says "if it wasn't for us you'd be typing this in German" because by that point they've scraped all the way through the barrel and have nothing more to add to the discission.


It's always worth reminding High Horse 'we saved your ass' Americans that it was Hitler who declared war on them, and not vice versa. If Hitler hadn't done so, there's every chance the US would have stuck to the Pacific war against Japan and let Europe go under. Roosevelt may have wanted to get into Europe, but few other Americans or their politicians did, as I understand it.

Maybe because IBM & other US companies were doing business with the Nazis

Ha, I never even noticed that!

Guess it depends on how erotic you find titties in an Igloo.

I've just watched Lars Von Trier's Breaking the Waves. Great film, and an extraordinarily brilliant performance from Emily Watson.
