    A joke.

    But, even so -- the world is round, and the British Empire covered a third of it. If Britain fell after the Soviet Union, Canada, too, would become a state in flux, not to mention Chuktoka's proximity to Alaska.

    Anyway, it doesn't matter. Things happened differently. I'm just seeing to it that the Soviets get credit for their immense sacrifice in that war, instead of being demonised by their political enemies for an ideological dick length contest that happened afterwards.
    Have you ever seen a map of The British Isles?

    There weren't any American troops there. Just CIA-funded mujahedeen. I don't understand what you're saying.

    Are you just a blatant racist, and you take delight in the deaths of people of other nationalities than your own (if so, never look up the history of Vietnam)? Or is there a point you're trying to make?

    But to say the Soviets were fighting for the freedom of the UK and US is disingenuous at best and an outright lie at worst. They were fighting for national survival, and you know it...

    Alright, that's fair. They most certainly were not fighting for the Brits or Americans. But they were fighting with the Brits and Americans, something people like apdst find hard to swallow.

    The British Empire was not THE empire at that stage, I have no idea why free Canadians would choose alleigance to a Nazi Britain over themselves. Again, it's hard to see how an invasion from Ireland would be any more effectual than an invasion from from France, I guess they abandoned Operation Green for a reason.

    The contributions of Russians can't be minimised, I bet they would have been a giant thorn in Hitlers ass even occupied without Stalin or a Soviet central government around.

    We trained'em, we armed'em, so through our military prowess and superior weapons systems, we killed the **** out of some Soviets.

    It's a point I'm trying to make, but it's also that I take delight in the deaths of any mother****ers that threaten my country and my people. My people are the American people, regardless of their race, color, religion, creed, or national origin.

    Why is that so hard for me to accept? I don't think I ever said anything to the contrary. All I ever said, is that the Soviets--nor the Brits--decided the outcome of WW2, all by themselves. If not for American involvement, you would have lost your asses.

    That's simply not true. It's wishful thinking, from a wishful nation. You're like teenagers. You think you're the best, invincible, and you think you've got fresh new ideas and a glorious past. You think you're the centre of the world. You're really not, and some day, you, as a nation, will grow up and realise that. When you do, we'll all be at the adult table waiting for you.
