    Why do we have to be the policemen of the world? We already destabilized the region? Now some want us to go in and retry again? How many attempts do you want?

    I see.

Who knew, until you, with your preternatural wisdom about all this, enlightened the rest of us?

    By April, 1943, German submarines had come very close to giving Hitler control over the whole Atlantic Ocean, and with that, control over much of the maritime commerce the United States depended on. And if Germany had defeated Britain and Russia--which seemed all too possible from the Fall of 1940 till the end of 1941--it would probably have gone on to develop the atom bomb first. After all, with no foreign threats, we Americans would have felt no need even to try to develop it. A nuclear-armed Nazi Germany could then have established a reign of terror over the whole Western world, including this country.

    But Hitler's Germany was never a threat to the United States. Who knew, before you educated us poor saps, whose knowledge of history--and no doubt much more--pales beside your own?

    I see you are showing, once again, why you don't deserve to be taken seriously. I don't know who you are, nor do I care, but you seem to be trying to get attention by saying ridiculous things. I think it's probably best, from here on, to let your pap go unanswered.

    Not going to happen. Should have concerned yourself with this when you were all about supporting the overthrow of Hussein and Mubarak and Gaddafi and Assad. Now your stuck with the results.

    It wasn't out of the blue, but then you know that. Economic warfare as well as military patrols provocatively close to Japanese mainland were part of FDR's bag of tricks to illicit an attack reported to the American people as a sucker punch, for no reason whatsoever. Lol.

    Stuck with ISIS? Lolz you wish. Public opinion is swayed. Even dems are calling for intervention. War is coming, in fact we are really already there.

    Not a wish dude. Remember, I'm the one who preferred the status quo, when Hussein, Mubarak, Gaddafi and Assad contained such miscreants. You on the other hand are the one itching for a war, and I don't deny you'll be getting it either.

    Wow, the next bunch of lies. Japan has attacked the United States and both Japan and Germany had declared war on the United States.

    I've certainly read of holocaust deniers, but I've never heard of a Pearl Harbor denier before you. Or a war of 1812 denier. Or a Civil War denier.

    Crouch down and lick your masters hand. I will not walk on eggshells to appease terrorists.

    Wow! I usually follow your posts and you make some good points from time to time, but you are way out of line here. Hopefully you are just having a bad day or are just weary from trying to defend your position. If that is not the case and you really think our military doesn't protect us or fight for us then I have lost all respect for you.
