I don't know how those guys did it. Probably the blissful courage of cheerful ignorance, and sheer bloody mindedness.

28 million Russians alone died during WW2 conflict America deliberately created in feeding Hitler everything he needed in the 1930's
Over 2 million troops from over 12 countries were in Britain in preparation for the invasion.
Twelve Allied nations provided fighting units that participated in the invasion, including Australia, Canada, Belgium, France, Czechoslovakia, Greece, New Zealand, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, the United Kingdom, and its true the United States fronted up, but to claim you nutters saved the world is deeply offensive professor you should check up instead of talking crap the whole time, your all silly in the extreme

I'm not knocking the service of WW2 GI service personnel, a lot of good people were killed trying to contain the expansionist thoughts of Catholic Hitlers Nazi Party and their supporters, D day was remembered in France with President of France stating no one nation can ever again be allowed to control international monitory settlements. The soldiers, airmen and naval forces of the United States of America suffered awfully during there deployment in WW2 and they should be remembered however a Facts Check because America was only one nation of many that supplied sons and daughters with a motivation to contain Axis forces :

An alliance originated in a series of agreements between Germany and Italy, followed by the proclamation of an “axis” binding Rome and Berlin (October 25, 1936), with the two powers claiming that the world would henceforth rotate on the Rome-Berlin axis. This was followed by the German-Japanese Anti-Comintern Pact against the Soviet Union (November 25, 1936).

The United States remained neutral until 8 December 1941, a day following the sneak attack by Japan on Pearl Harbor.
Congress passed a series of Neutrality Acts in the late 1930s, aiming to prevent future involvement in foreign wars by banning American citizens from trading with nations at war, loaning them money, or traveling on their ships. America fed Hitler while Germany was NOT at War. Bit like the Treaty of Versailles that AMERICA created and didn't bother signing up to that treaty, in same matter America fed Hitler everything he needed so he could build his forces.
World War II began in Europe on September 1, 1939. For more than two years the United States remained officially neutral in the conflict, and Americans debated whether to stay out of the war or to join the Allied forces fighting Nazi Germany. Forward to D day.
The highest casualties occurred on Omaha beach, where 2,000 U.S. troops were killed, wounded or went missing; at Sword Beach and Gold Beach, where 2,000 British troops were killed, wounded or went missing; and at Juno beach, where 340 Canadian soldiers were killed and another 574 wounded.

Planes dropped 13,000 bombs before the landing: they completely missed their targets; intense naval bombardment still failed to destroy German emplacements. The result was, Omaha Beach became a horrific killing zone, with the wounded left to drown in the rising tide.

Although the war began with Nazi Germany's attack on Poland in September 1939, the United States did not enter the war until after the Japanese bombed the American fleet in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, on December 7, 1941. ... The war ended with the Axis powers' unconditional surrender in 1945.

I always wondered why there was no airsupport during the d-day landing. The soldiers ran straight into the fire of the German army. If they first would have thrown several bombs there, could have also beendone with the cannons from the ships, I think much more soldiers would have survived.

Strange thing is Germany is almost the leader of the EU. But now we gave them the power by our own free will. What would all these soldiers that died now think???

This was Eisenhower's address to the Troops at D-day



Soldiers, Sailors, and Airmen of the Allied Expeditionary Force!

You are about to embark upon the Great Crusade, toward which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the world are upon you. The hope and prayers of liberty-loving people everywhere march with you. In company with our brave Allies and brothers-in-arms on other Fronts, you will bring about the destruction of the German war machine, the elimination of Nazi tyranny over the oppressed peoples of Europe, and security for ourselves in a free world.

Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is will-trained, well-equipped and battle-hardened. He will fight savagely.

But this is the year 1944! Much has happened since the Nazi triumphs of 1940-41. The United Nations have inflicted upon the Germans great defeats, in open battle, man-to-man. Our air offensive has seriously reduced their strength in the air and their capacity to wage war on the ground. Our Home Fronts have given us an overwhelming superiority in weapons and munitions of war, and placed at our disposal great reserves of trained fighting men. The tide has turned! The free men of the world are marching together to Victory!

I have full confidence in your courage, devotion to duty and skill in battle. We will accept nothing less than full Victory!

Good luck! And let us beseech the blessing of Almighty God upon this great and noble undertaking.


Trivia about Eisenhower. He was christened David Dwight Eisenhower, but reversed the names later on in life. He also didn't have a Birth certificate for a long time, so one was issued to him when he ran for President on the testimony of his brother.

Britain paid heavily for American involvement in WW2, the Americans charging a heavy price , to the British, though they were saving their own bacon. THe Italians were our enemies allied with the Nazis.

yes I understand, I also understand some Irish, Vichy French, Poles (previous Pope found himself in Hitlers something and so he wisely joined clergy), some troops came from Spain, Hungary, Romania, and Slovakia (after Czechoslovakia had divided in 1939) in November 1940, Bulgaria and Yugoslavia in March 1941, and, after the wartime breakup of Yugoslavia, Croatia (June 1941).
Google also says
There were actually quite a few countries supporting Germany and Hitler in WW II. Germany's main allies where Italy and Japan, who both signed the Tripartite pact.
...
However, there were also other countries who supported Germany in WW II:

Hungary.
Romania.
Bulgaria.
Finland.
Iraq.

I think the Reserve Bank of America (also included English member) were behind creating WW2 (+ Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan wars probably) which is a private bank that appears to be behind all USA arms industry.
But I admit in relation to the Reserve Back mention don't know detailswave

It's a little known fact that American troops suffered their greatest loss in preparation for the D-Day landings and it took place on Slapton Sands, a small shingle beach in South Devon.

In the Spring of 1944 around 750 American GI's were shot down or drowned in a practice exercise for the later invasion of Europe.

Nothing of what happened was reported at the time , despite it being the greatest loss of life to American troops since Pearl Harbour.

Talk all the smut you want, we saved your azz and you know it.

The following is from someone who says he has lived in Australia all his life. He was asked the question "Why do Australians claim America saved them in World War 2?". His response is:

"Probably because the Yanks did save us. Well save might be a bit much depending on whether you consider Japanese plans to invade mainland Aus to have been genuine considerations or not.

While the Japanese Imperial Army and Navy encroached ever southward, the UK, our glorious father was detaining our forces in Africa as long as possible, while leaving only a piecemeal force to defend British Malaya, and the Australian and New Zealand dominions.

With the Fall of Singapore, the British lost most of their men to surrender, along with a considerable ‘colonial’ garrison. Australia managed to hold Japan in PNG thanks to the aid of the natives, but without the intercession of the United States, we were on the back foot as the UK obstinately remained dedicated to the European and African theatres.

It wasn’t a case of being ungrateful, but rather spurned by our former overlords. Their refusal to adequately commit to the defence of their allies and assets in the South Pacific forced Australia to have to look elsewhere for a strong ally who took Australian concerns about Japan seriously."

galrads: How does my statement say that only the USA had sacrifices and save the world, “ Never forget those sacrifices made then to save civilization.”
to my mind "Never forget those sacrifices made then to save civilization"! implies that American forces saved the whole world civilization. Which of course is a nonsense, world was only at risk of been controlled by the Nazi's and dropping nuclear bombs on Japan placed the world in far greater risk than anything mankind had preciously engaged in
I've said before my father, his brothers, my mothers brothers and her first husband was killed flying over Germany to, were at war in 1939, protecting King and Country, they went from NZ to support the King of New Zealand...nothing to do with American Forces dying while saving civilization.
Far more likely they fought and died because so scumbags could make profit. A war so America could control international settlements right across civilization, which is exactly what they imposed on the whole world in 1945 after they claimed they had saved the world.
I've submitted evidence in these forums to that effect, and I can assure you Putin agrees that is what America did, (he has publicly stated that) and its why French President stated at the last D-day memorial service no one country ever again was going to be allowed to control international monetary settlements.
Its why China set up the One Belt Initiative, its what the current common flu shit is all about...the US Peso...

surely you jest
