    Actually WWII began in Sep 39. The US involvement began in Dec 41.

    Also, the Allied victory - was won by cooperation of all the Allies

    Pure silliness. I could build just as stupid of an "argument".

    In less than eight years in the 1960's the United States went from unmanned one-time rocket launches to solo manned space flight, then space duos, to linking up two space craft in space, to space walks, followed by three men in space at once, flights around the moon, and ultimately landing men on the moon and returning them safely to earth.

    In the eight years that Reagan was President he couldn't even build a fence on the Mexican border to keep out illegal immigrants. Couldn't balance the budget.

    In the eight years that Bush Jr. was President he couldn't even get the green light for manned spaceflight to Mars. Couldn't win a war against Afghanistan.

    Stupid.

    And in six years - Obama hasn't been able to close Club Gitmo - as he had promised.

    So what is your point.

    He doesn't have a point. He's comparing apples to hand grenades.

    You are correct. I remember reading about it when the Germans invaded Poland, believe it or not! Actually one could argue that it started with the German takeover of Austria and Czechoslovakia.

    The world went into depression around 1930. While Franklin Delano Roosevelt prolonged the depression in the United States with his O'bamma like policies Germany came out of the depression and built the strongest army in the world.


    Without the United States Germany and Japan would never have been defeated!

    Nope in fact he has done just the opposite. He has deconstructed our healthcare, border, and race relations.

    I'm pretty sure the people of China would say World War II started in December of 1937. Almost every nation involved only considers the war from the time they entered. A lot of Americans believe WWII only lasted from 1941-1945. Europe uses the 1939 date as the start, though you could argue as early as 1936. Japan invaded and massacred the Chinese city of Nanjing on Dec 13, 1937.
