    Unfortunately, real history on our side of the "pond" has been becoming more and more of a joke anyways. We spend far more time and resources teaching our children the "contributions" of minorities than teaching real history or civics, how our government is supposed to work. Multi-cultural sensitivity is actually required in some school systems here.

    Look at how many Americans keep supporting variations of socialism although implementing it has repeatedly failed through out history. Instead of returning back to what allowed us to rise to the top and finding new ways to address the problems that existed, they keep trying again and again to repeat the same failed schemes.

    Yes, the USA has benefited the world in many ways and harmed it too. American foreign policy for example.
    You are right... Europe would be speaking German and the Pacific would be speaking Japanese if not for the Americans. Good catch.

    To hear some people, you wonder whether anyone else was involved in either world war. I'm guessing that Japan and Germany also played minor roles somewhere along the line but really it was all down to the US - start to finish.
    Your level of contribution to WWII relies solely on the amount of movies you make on the subject. Sorry.

    What about the Soviet Union? Surely they deserve recognition in winning the war, don't they?

    And the Eastern Bloc, and the Iron Curtain, and genocide, and the Berlin Wall, etc etc etc...
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Yeah, I don't get this. I was talking about WWII, not the Soviet Union as a whole.

    The Soviet Union had a huge impact on WWII.

    Only because Truman was a typical coward Democrat (or maybe the Dems were pro-socialist even then) and wouldn't allow Patton to kick the soviets asses. But go figure, Wilson, also a Democrat didn't properly finish things in WWI which caused WW II. FDR, also a Democrat was stupid enough to ally with the soviets in the first place and actually sold/gave them equipment. So Truman didn't really end WWII, While the National Socialist German Workers Party (Nazi's) were defeated, he didn't not finish eradicating socialism and allowed the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics to live and so we had the Cold War and all the bad crap from it. Truman also abandoned the Chinese people and allowed Socialism to rise there, only protecting a few at the end by not allowing them to take Taiwan. Truman was also true to form Democrat once again when he didn't invest enough in the Korean war, not only allowing North Korea to survive, but he stopped MacArthur from taking out the Communist Chinese (more bloody pain in the ass socialist).

    They also had a huge impact on the world afterwards.
