@piratefish: You are half right. The US was a contributor to the war in Europe. The second front, however, was meaningless for Germany. The Germans were on the rope well before the second front was ever opened. The high water mark of German success was Stalingrad. Once the German 6th Army was surrounded on 23 November 1942 Nazi victory became impossible. D-day didn't happen until June of 1944.

The largest contribution the US made to the war in Europe was to supply trucks to the Soviets so they could concentrate on building armor. The Soviets faced 90% of the German military on their own. All the other Allies combined faced the other 10%. Germany never transferred fresh troops from the east to the west. When eastern front units were moved west it was because they were already decimated.

The biggest difference the western front made was in the post war world where it provided the border for the fall of the iron curtain.

"Ahaha! The old "we have saved your asses twice"-argument. That's getting old. Very untrue also. The Allied Forces were more than just the USA."

Calling it old doesn`t make it any less valid or relevant.

And it is a pretty much undisputed historical fact that the US involvement in WW2 was the decisive factor in Allied victory. The UK was literally on its knees, and without the US opening a second front for Germany, the Soviets would have been in very serious trouble.

Ask any historian, especially a military historian, and they will tell you unequivocally that the US was the deciding factor in WW2. Without us, Europe would be German right now; like it or not.

I do think this "fact" is because Connecticut forced it's population to register it`s guns.

@piratefish: "But then again, we're not perfect like Europeans are (never mind the fact we had to save you from yourselves twice in the last century, you smug bastard)."

Ahaha! The old "we have saved your asses twice"-argument. That`s getting old. Very untrue also. The Allied Forces were more than just the USA.

Let`s hear it for Doug Stanhope
