    Or, as it is known in Britain: "The day we decided that we`d rather keep India..." and the day Americans celebrate the freedom to be spied on by their own government

    sosueme: It was longer than that, The English tried to take America back in 1812 as well.

    Which is the backdrop of Francis Scott Key`s poem.
    He was a prisoner on board an English ship watching the battle over Fort McHenry.

    Our flag that flew over the fort that night still exists, It`s in the Smithsonian Museum.

    Smutly, is that the redneck version of Ironman?


    For the Americans of IAB I heartily recommend seeing if you can get a hold of a UK radio sitcom called `Revolting People` written by Andy Hamilton.

    It is set in Baltimore just before the war of independence and is well worth a listen.

    and again, happy 4th July.

    Now, can someone please explain what the drat an open forum is and what we can type that we can`t do on any other post, cause I`ve seen a fair few of these advertised over the years and I`ve never sussed it out yet.

    The war of 1812 wasn`t started by the British but it was finished by Canadians. We burned down the White House.

    I think America has a lot going for it if we would only get out of our own way. I`ve travelled a lot in Europe and there are so many things I`ve seen there that I wish we would adopt here. Get rid of religion in politics, it`s distracting us from achieving real advances in health, science and infrastructure. We need a new independence day, free from religious and special interest tyranny!!!

    lol, I love that argument about the world wars...

    WWI started: July 1914
    America joined: April 1917
    Armistice (ended): Nov 1918

    - Time America was `there`: 19/52 months = the last third. So you were just there really for the end. That`s not really `winning`, that`s showing up for the end credits.

    WWII started: Sept 1939
    America joined: Dec 1941
    Ended: Aug 1945

    = 45/71 months = There for the last two thirds... better this time but really you only entered because Japan was stupid enough to bomb Pearl Harbour, not because your buddies (the UK) needed a bit of help. Again, not really winning, more a case of *those cheeky buggers bombed us while we were at church with our pants down... AND NOW WE HAVE TO RECORD WHEEL OF FORTUNE!!!* - there`s your motivation.

    Rodin, Canada didnt exist yet during the war of 1812.

    beternal, while we werent there for the entirety of either world war, we did come in and help win it for the allies.

    mexican-american war, spanish-american war, Desert Storm, etc.
    We haven`t lost a war. We have had a couple of stalemates (1812 for example), but no thorough losses.

    "Americans have never won a war. -- not 1."

    The Gulf War (Operation Desert Storm) 1991

    Considering that the main goal of the 1991 Gulf War was to get the Iraqis out of Kuwait and the UN coalition force was led by and consisted largely of American forces, that`s a win.

    "The war of 1812 wasn`t started by the British but it was finished by Canadians. We burned down the White House."

    I guess you don`t know much about the history of your own country. Canada was part of the British Empire until its independence on July 1, 1867. 1867 comes after 1812, therefore "Canada" didn`t do sh*t in the War of 1812.

    @auburnjunky :

    WWI : all the parties were exhausted because of 4 years of war, it would probably have ended with a white peace, and the boundaries of 1872.

    WWII : sorry guys but you never won this war, USSR did. Most of german forces were deployed on the eastern front, and basically russians took Berlin.

    Marco51 You are right. U.S certainly don`t have won the war with the actions in Europe,U.S have won the war with fear and massacre in Japan with the atomics bombs. In Europe the nazis were defeated by russians,when americans entered Berlin Hitler was allready dead and the russians were there allready from one week or more,nazism was allready erased from the face of the earth.

    Rodin, "America" was coined in the 16th century I believe. The "United States of" part was all Thomas Jeffersons doing. We became "The United States of America" (although i dont think this is the official title they went with) as soon as we decided we were no longer going to be a part of Britain. It took you guys a little longer to come to the same decision.

    Keep telling yourself that but we still exsist for one thing. Also we stopped the British from blockading our trade and the impressment of our ship crews. Now about burning down the white house I see you blissfully ignore the battle of York where York now known as Toronto was set ablaze... That`s some definition of winning you got there!

    McGovern. The Americans did NOT burn down York. Check your facts. The british blew up the magazine at fort york. A bunch of uncontrolled American soldiers decided on their own to loot and plunder homes and the parliament buildings and burn a few. The Americans did not burn down the town. And this really has nothing to do with Independance day. Get your head out of your ass. Stop mouthing off about all the poo you think you know and actually go out and do something that counts. join the military you lazy assed redneck. Maybe a few swift kicks in the ass will straighten you out And dropping A-bombs is not winning anything. It just confirms the ignorance of people that think firepower is the answer to everything. that and pickup trucks and beer. Oh. Don`t forget Nascar, A NonAthleticSportCenteredAroundRednecks. Up here we call that drifting. BTW. Remember what counrty has to cover your sorry asses everytime your idiot government starts a war.

    You Europeans are (mostly) a bunch of entitled hypocrites who outsource your military to the US in a transparent attempt to gain the moral high ground.

    The reason the US military is so large and overbearing is because you fools enabled it. You willingly traded your own militaries during the Cold War in exchange for NATO (ahem, US) support.

    Remember the Balkans where we tried to stay out of it and let Europe handle it? Your inability to handle even that led to a massacre. Only when the US intervened did it come to a swift end.

    What about more recent events? Remember how the UK and France wanted to bomb Libya? Remember how they begged for US KC-135s? How about when France couldn`t even occupy Mali without US KC-135s?

    You`re a spoiled, entitled generation who pretends to take the high-ground because your comforts (oil, for example) are paid for with US blood and money.

    "Remember the Balkans where we tried to stay out of it and let Europe handle it? Your inability to handle even that led to a massacre. Only when the US intervened did it come to a swift end. "

    I served in a US intel unit, (not just a brit alongside them, but as a brit attached to their unit command for 2* 6 months stints.) I loved living and working with because it was a refreshing change from the stick-up-their-arses UK military bosses. The brit colonels in the area hated the fact there were two brits there they couldn`t drat about with because our colonel stuck up for us and drank with us rather than brown nose the brit brass.

    The fact is, the US didn`t try and stay out of it, that`s juts what your congress was told because they wouldn`t let your troops be feet on the ground as part of the UN forces, they could only fly deny flight ops out of Vincenza.

    Clinton got round this by asking the UK for a few people and forming discrete multinational

    Anybody remember how the US went to war with Iraq for oil?

    Then, despite being in a position to simply arrange or take the oil, they let Russia, China, Japan, France and the Netherlands get the major and minor oil contracts?

    Damn those greedy Americans who stabilize the Middle East at great personal expense so that Europe and Asia will have oil. What a bunch of selfish pricks, amirite?

    cont.

    units, on the face of it they weren`t US units, but were in reality and reported directly to US command via SACEUR ready to switch berets once NATO were given the go ahead for the IFOR phase.

    It`s not that you were trying to stay out of it and let Europe handle it... it`s that you were very much in the thick of it from an intel and flight op point of view right from when the rest of Europe decided action needed to be taken about the Balkan war.

    Thankfully...because whatever the banter here between us/Europe is saying about past wars, that was essentially a peace keeping mission and it needed a full on approach from US/Europe because it was such a drating mess at the time...and the local allegiances changed by the day.

    Yea... that is "staying out of it" for the US in my opinion. Given the precedence, anything short of a US led force is "staying out of it."

    Also, that`s not to say all Europeans are "a bunch of entitled hypocrites" - just most of the ones on this forum and site.

    As for the Europeans (and Canadians) on here who take every chance to cast the US as an evil empire hell-bent on dominating the world and pursuing their own oil interests - you`re a bunch of spoiled hypocrites.

    It`s unusual to hear that North America is being grouped with South America as one big continent McGovern....here in the UK we follow the guidelines that they`re both separate continents...I thought the US taught the same and it was only some nations like france that are taught they are just one.

    Having said that I just googled to check my memories about what were the 7 continents and I`ve found that some kids are now taught that Europe and Asia are the same continent called Eurasia which seems even more bizarre.

    1812 We burned down the White that somehow means winning. York burned!! IT`S NOT FAIR!!

    WW1 you only broke the stalemate in the trenches cause you stayed out of it for awhile and came in fresh to pick up the pieces IT`S NOT FAIR!

    WW2 you let Russia take the most casualties while supplying allies and building up your army so you could end it without taking more casualties then need be IT`S NOT FAIR!

    Unconditional surrender dosen`t count cause you used an A-Bomb IT`S NOT FAIR!!

    Gulf War.... still no response it`ll be something like this... You use overwhelming firepower and tactics IT`S NOT FAIR!!

    Dear God! does no-one study history anymore?

    In WW11 neither UK, USSR nor USA had the resources to defeat Nazi Germany on their own.
    Britain`s contribution was to divert and damage German resources in the first year of fighting, thus delaying and weakening the attack on Russia.
    Russia soaked up MASSIVE losses (just short of 30 million!) in bogging down the bulk of the German armies.
    And America (USA) provided war material that the other two just couldn`t produce. (not unlike in the North`s defeat of the Confederacy in the Civil war).
    Yes, USA did also provide armies on the Western front but the brunt of the fighting and damage to the Nazi war machine happened in the East from Kursk to Berlin.

    JOINT EFFORT, PEOPLE!!! By the ALLIES!!

    All this We did/You did is very childish and you are all to go to bed with no supper. I won`t say it twice...

    McGovern. You are a drating idiot. Get a life. You spew crap just like your life. Your "facts` are unproven. As for the `A bomb " . What the hell do you think if Japan had dropped it on the states first? Duhh ! We are `mericans and will never surrender. I don`t think so. Killing millions of people from over 4000 miles away says that the cowards with no balls to fight had something to be proud of. Yeah right. And your fat ass sitting in front of your computer shows how active americans are. Get a history lesson. You have a biassed opinion, but not the facts. Because we are not allowed to post links here , most of us could prove all your comments wrong. You sir are just a pimple on a donkey`s arse. Something that nobody sees or cares about except the person it is on . Or in your case , your country. Go cash your welfare check and buy some beer , get your gun and shoot some poor rodent "just cause you can". Now we know why abortion and sterilization should be allowed.

    Killing millions of people from over 4000 miles away says that the cowards with no balls to fight had something to be proud of.

    You think I should op[en a history book after saying that!! ROFL!! Well for one the two A-bombs dropped didn`t kill millions of people if you`re looking for those kind of casualties you should look up what Japan did to China. As for sitting 4000 miles away see the battles of Midway and Iwo Jima. You`re pretty much siding with the Axis side you know the side Canada fought against too the one who committed genocide on a massive scale. It`s pretty clear who the ass is....

    Americans take note: When your Independence Day threads turn into all the Americans defending your country from the ire of all the non-Americans, maybe you might want to take a look at your attitudes and foreign policies. And we`re from the countries that are supposed to be your allies. An even the bigger portion of the world wants to see your nation and culture burn itself to the ground and are willing to die to see it made so.

    As is evidenced by this thread, about as much so as are Europeans. The difference appears to be that, while Americans are off celebrating their holiday, Europeans are busy trying to spoil the event.

    Imagine if I came to your birthday party and told you how much you suck. I believe you would defend yourself.

    Ummmm, last I checked that `bigger portion` wants your nation and culture to burn as well. Just sayin...

    @HumanAction hit the nail on the head. The majority of `peans that have posted in this and other Independence Day threads did so to spoil the event.

    Then you`re all going to say we need to do this or that, or that we`re touchy? Well ummmmmm, yeah we probably are just as you all so fiercely defend your own respective countries.

    @listypoos:
    I spent the day with family and friends and celebrated what the day was intended to mean all those years ago. A day people like my grandfather, 3 uncles and myself fought to protect. I did not celebrate it with the current government and it`s policies in mind however. I said it in a different thread and I`ll say it here. If all the naysayers were to worry more about their own countries and less about what we Americans do on our holiday maybe the world could be a much better place.

    It would take much more to insult me than that. I just thought it was curious that the Americans here were being painted as petty and "touchy" when their reactions were merely defensive.

    If you look back in the conversation, the belligerence did not occur until people from other countries started being snide. That alone is rather damning.

    talon0325-"What the hell do you think if Japan had dropped it on the states first?"

    If they had had it, and the ability to drop it, they WOULD have. And they were working on it.

    A few facts:
    The two A-Bombs that ended WWII killed between 150K & 246K people (FYI, 250K < `millions`.)
    If the A-Bombs had not been utilized, a ground invasion of Japan would have cost an estimated 400K to 800K allied lives, and 5-10 million Japanese.
    Japan murdered 6 million Chinese, Indonesians, Koreans, Filipinos and Indochinese prior to, and during, WWII. The soldiers had a fun game they callled `Catch the baby on the bayonet.`
    Hiroshima and Nagasaki were legitimate targets.
    Japan had been warned it would face "prompt and utter destruction" if they did not surrender by the Potsdam Declaration .

    Wow. I don`t think I`ve ever been quite so disappointed with all of us as a community. :-( And to think it all started the other day when I couldn`t even send up a cotton candy cute scene from an ancient movie as a gesture of goodwill without someone leaping on my back to tell me it`s not accurate (no s#it, it`s `60s Hollywood, it`s not meant to be a documentary) and completely missing the basic point therein.

    That being that even though it`s our party, I would gladly include anyone who wanted to celebrate and have a good time and that I bear no ill will towards anyone else either. (Quite the contrary in fact)

    Yet It has devolved into the ugliest pissing match with no one able to take or even recognize a joke and tempers flaring high. I`d tell everyone to take a breath and eat a Snickers but then I`m worried I`d be accused of shooting someone`s mother so... Peace Out.
