"" What does your cut and paste job have to do with my response re: the Russians and WWII?""
Helloooo, anyone home? I did not respond because this is off topic and has nothing to do with the facts of the matter, nice try. (however, you are wrong)
During WWII, the Good General fought in southeast Asia, against Japan, not in the Europe arena. And I am familiar with his remark, which was more of a wish to defete Hitler than any approval of the Russian Red Army. If Hitler did not attack Russia, Stalin would have continued to be aligned with Germany.
The "Cut and Past" has everything to do with the topic at hand.
""You mean that if it weren't for the French and British YOU would be goose-stepping? YOU IGNORANT ASSHOLE""
With respect, I resent your insults and name calling.
I appeal to you as one human to another, with different viewpoints, and to your sense of fairness and to the very rules you have created for this site.
(So, you are claiming that if the US did not intervene in your war, you guys would have one WWII anyway? Wow....Germany, Italy, Japan...hummm) At any rate, here is the reasons for my claim about France:
France vs. Germany - Rise of Hitler 1933-1939 A.D. (Germany bullies France into letting them take more territory - the wussies wouldn't even fight over it - they adopted a policy of 'appeasement' - can you say SCARED?)
France vs. Germany Round II - WWII June 22, 1940 A.D. (France surrenders to Hitler at Compiegne after putting up a fight that made Polish Army look good. Notice Vichy France who quickly jumped ship to be friends with the Germans. Without the help of good old Uncle Sam the Atlantic Wall would never have been penetrated - France would either be a part of the 3rd Reich or a satellite country of Communist Russia under Uncle Joe Stalin)
