No, not at all

Yes, it is
Oh, very arrogant
I can't decide

Lend-Lease - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Roosevelt wanted to get involved in the war well before the US actually did, but Congress refused to agree. Lend Lease meant the US had already thrown in it's lot with Britain against Nazi Germany well before any declaration of war. By declaring war on Japan on Dec 8, 1941, the US, in effect, declared war on Germany and Italy since they were members of the tripartite pact. It was mere formality that Germany later declared war on the US and vice-versa.Prior to overt participation in WWII, the US was actively engaged in convoys with the British in the North Atlantic Ocean, primarily supporting British activities in Iceland. This was discussed by John T. Flynn in his 1944 work "The Truth About Pearl Harbor"
I don't know that it was Europe's failure that drew the US in. Japan and Germany had been engaging in hostile actions before the start of ww2. Japan had been in China since 1932 and had made another thrust into China in 1937, which the US protested. Germany had already launched Operation Barbarossa and thus had attacked Russia before the US entered the war. Germany was behaving like a spoiled kid with ADHD on a sugar rush. It needed to be brought to heel.
I think all countries have a sense of arrogants or a lack of understanding of others cultures. For instance, last night while listening to a live stream, the caster told a story. This professional came over from Europe to play in a MLG tournament for the first time. He gets off the plane in a white suite/white cowboy boots/with a white jacket slung over his shoulder. He gets picked up by the caster and the first thing he says is, "I'm here to party, are you ready to party?" Obviously arrogant but we do the same thing to when we go to other countries. While some of us would try to respect others culture, just by being an American we are disrespecting their culture in how we talk/eat/walk/drive/etc etc. Things are done differently in different countries, and it may not be considered "arrogant" here but it will definitely be considered "arrogant" where you go.
Read this person's comments. Does this qualify as arrogant?
