Alright, the Allies stormed Normandy, not just the mighty US. Some allies were involved in the conflict a lot longer than the US was. At one time Canada was known for achieving objectives, even at horrible costs. Those men also died heros, thank you very much.
However, a different question, how many centuries does the US get to hold WWII over the heads of the French? I mean, when everyone who was alive and old enough to remember the war is dead, do you think it is fair to let the younger generation form their own opinion of the US.
Or perhaps they should forever be on the ground kissing your feet because at one point your ancestors did something grand for reasons other than bragging rights?
No, don’t bother to answer, I already know the answer to this… there is only one country on the planet that matters to anyone. Here, let me throw myself on the ground and worship your feet now before you crush my country for my impudence.
Oh, yes, the French do appear to be on the wrong side of issues a fair amount these days. That doesn’t mean you have to dehumanize and villify them, or is that the only trick left in the book?
