Marines are like that; doesn't make them good, makes them strong. A Marine who goes up to an Iraq and says my god is bigger than your god is not going to have the chance to fight bare knuckle.

Irrelevant to what I was discussing.

This is utterly ridiculous. America is far stronger then it would of been under British adminstration. You speak in hypothetical nonsense that is purely ridiculous and totally wrong. May you be continue being wrong. You just don't understand what you are talking about. And screw the british monarchy. America, as a democracy, has risen up and done its best in stopping Hitler.

Without us you would be speaking german.

You speak in total hypotheticals that are completely wrong for that matter.

To hell with your opinions.

Since when did Russia EVER support Hitler during WW2? You're making things up LK. Russia was a true ally. Yes, they had their problems (and I'm Russian, mind you), like everyone else, but they NEVER supported germany nor their aims.

Russia was very apathetic towards the war. Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact is the proof there. They probably wouldnt have lifted so much as a finger, if Germany hadnt launched Operation Barbarossa. So they werent an ally they were only protecting themselves, which coincidentelly ended up toppling the Reich.

Well I have to agree with NOFX. Stalin turned a blind eye to clear warnings that were coming from other nations months before the invasion happened. He didn't believe it.

Perhaps, who knows. But Britain; with America would have been far stronger than America. I didn't say the American Part of the British Empire would be as strong as it would have been at the same point as the United States; but the British Empire would have been stronger than America and by enough to not even bring up the idea of an Arms Race, and Germany from even thinking about bringing Britain into a War.

Haha. I doubt that seriously - without America in the War but still there as a country we would be speaking English, or Russian. More likely Russian.

If you could point out where I brought up Russia and Germany in any kind of togetherness it would be interesting

This is B.S. Britain would of never been more powerful then America because America would of never fully developed. You need to get your facts right..

I don't speak with hypotheticals because my opinions are based on actual events.

What a child.
