  • I know this is an oversimplified version, but seriously not 1 mention of Canada SMH ppl always sleep on what they did in both wars especially considering they were not in danger from the Germans. They helped right from the start, are the reason Vimy Ridge was taken back and had less men the most others but we're savage, ruthless to the enemy and tactically intelligent. Yes I'm Canadian so I do have some biases, but if you really read the history of the Canadians contribution many would understand why it bothers me they get overlooked in both world wars (except from the Dutch I know they never forget what the Canadians did).

  • Only putin reserves the right to push the button today, but he wouldn't do it if China does also.... otherwise we would eliminate their entire countries.... trump is obviously a pussy and so is biden.... WHO THE FUCK IS GOING TO HOLD PEOPLE ACCOUNTABLE, IF NOT US?!?!?! Too scared to not be re-elected? putin doesn't have that fear so we need to think differently. Cyber attack is the optimal method. These puppet presidents are all good for nothing. They made people wear hats and shit to distract from their lack of strategy and even welfare of Americans. FUCK ALL REPUBLICAN clowns that voted against healthcare for the majority of the public! Fuck them and their mothers with a barbed steel electric rod! All this money in our Military, and if you're not using it then give it to the people/businesses struggling... How incompetent can these overpaid government puppets get? It's all a BIG JOKE! Fucking ass-wipes....

  • The master class has always declared the wars. The subject class has always fought the battles,” Debs said. “The master class has had all to gain and nothing to lose, while the subject class has had nothing to gain and all to lose-especially their lives.” “They have always taught and trained you to believe it to be your patriotic duty to go to war and to have yourselves slaughtered at their command. But in all the history of the world you, the people, have never had a voice in declaring war, and strange as it certainly appears, no war by any nation in any age has ever been declared by the people.” “And here let me emphasize the fact-and it cannot be repeated too often-that the working class who fight all the battles, the working class who make the supreme sacrifices, the working class who freely shed their blood and furnish the corpses, have never yet had a voice in either declaring war or making peace. It is the ruling class that invariably does both. They alone declare war and they alone make peace.” “These are the gentry who are today wrapped up in the American flag, who shout their claim from the housetops that they are the only patriots, and who have their magnifying glasses in hand, scanning the country for evidence of disloyalty, eager to apply the brand of treason to the men who dare to even whisper their opposition to Junker rule in the United Sates. No wonder Sam Johnson declared that ‘patriotism is the last refuge of the scoundrel.’ He must have had this Wall Street gentry in mind, or at least their prototypes, for in every age it has been the tyrant, the oppressor and the exploiter who has wrapped himself in the cloak of patriotism, or religion, or both to deceive and overawe the people.”

Any person who thinks bad of America must think what they have done for our country and Europe for the past few 100 years.

  • Part 1 you also forgot that they would take over a small piece of land or take back only to lose it the next day it was an endless loop til finally they got the upper hand in 1918. Luckily they had a treaty which would would put an end to the war... for now. Then after years and years of struggling after the devastating war 1939 invasion of Poland Germany was back at it again the U.S never got involved until May of 1942. We were back at war but, facing the threat of the third Reich known as the National Socialist Party.
