You Americans always come in late when the war's nearly fought out

Yes, we were content to watch Neville hyperventilate his way into a war by declaring peace.

Thanks for the smile this morning.

You make it sound like Omaha beach was a cakewalk, and that the battle of the bulge was an afterthought.

I think you and leadpenny need to read a history book or two about post-WW1 Europe and WW2.

It's hardly my fault if the US military got - shall we be charitable? - unlucky twice. I can think of a few other instances where the US army got its arse kicked. Doesn't mean a thing: every other nation in that war also got its arse kicked, usually more than once, shrugged off its losses and just went on with the job. So what?

If any nation deserves credit for beating the Germans, it was the Soviet Union, followed by the British Empire. However, the Americans did their bit in the end too. Thanks for that. But don't hog the limelight all the time.

Weren't we talking about Iraq?
