    Who said this and when.....


    America should have minded her own business and stayed out of the World War. If you hadn't entered the war the Allies would have made peace with Germany in the Spring of 1917. Had we made peace then there would have been no collapse in Russia followed by Communism, no breakdown in Italy followed by Fascism, and Germany would not have signed the Versailles Treaty, which has enthroned Nazism in Germany. If America had stayed out of the war, all these 'isms' wouldn't today be sweeping the continent of Europe and breaking down parliamentary government - and if England had made peace early in 1917, it would have saved over one million British, French, American, and other lives.

    Please tell us it wasn't Lindbergh during his tour of Germany in the late '30's. On second thought, it couldn't be...he was an isolationist, not crippled historian.

    Isegrim and Huckebein, last fall, in that thread where they tried to prove that the Erla Haube canopy provided greater visibilty than the Mustang or P-47 bubbletops.

    I believe what Winston Churchill said was:

    "I may be drunk madam, but BLEEEYAAAAAAARG!!"
    (sound of you know what)

    Ok, I deleted the stupid post that showed that old men do not read everything before they react. You know, like "Who said this . . .".

    My apologies for the stupid moment.

    ah... revisionist history.

    Again it seems America is responsible for Europe's woes.





    Eh, mates! What's the good word?
