and the dedication it had? I mean, did the news media and the liberal socialists of the time complain daily about the boys and girls being out for FRIGGEN YEARS during the war? HELL NO- they knew what must be done to finish the damn thing and didn't whine every time you turn around. If you would ask a neolib to grow a victory garden now-a-days they would claim that they are being treated as slaves- or if you asked them to ration gas, they would claim the world was going to hell in a handbasket.

War is war people, and things must be done to finish the thing- like it or not. Thank God the WWII Generation had enough wear-with-all to make it throug, because they would have told many of your pinko-yellow-bellied-b@stards to shut the hell up. :D

I wonder what the world would be like if they would have brought our boys and girls home and never extended their duty? Hmmmmmm... Spechen Sie Deutch? :rolleyes:

my question is how could they come home from fighting facist goverments and then let americas become the same thing

remember a facist goverment is one where propery is owned by people but so regulated by laws they are not free to use it in their personal best intrest

did they just get too used to following orders?

In the Revolution and the Civil War, soldiers had the right to walk away when their enlistments were up, and some did, even during battles. Vietnam had a definite term of service which was never violated TTBOMK. In WWI and II the soldiers were fighting to end the war, not see it drag on indefinitely. I assume you are either about to enlist or have already served, Lee, otherwise you have no right whatsoever to make this post.

Victor, that BruceG needs to characterize a section of his audience as traitorous pinko yellow bellied bastards because they whine/criticize/negate the administrations rhetoric opens the thread up to any manner of retort.

His desire for goose stepping uniformity of opinion is something my parents fought against.

Well, I know what happened to the WW2 generation in my family; they were my parents, and they died in the 1980's.

Feeling kinda nostalgic Bruce?

You are right. War is war and we havn't had a decent one since before we were born. All we've known is bullying, invasion, occupation, plundering. How can we turn these petty conflicts into full scale, massive declared wars where we get to draft and kill our youth, drop bombs of untold destruction, conduct battle at numerous locations, kill millions, and have big parades?

In an effort to turn eveything of the 60's around back to the glories of the 40's & 50's this restrained military seems to be an item that just won't budge. You should be frustrated not only with the aunties but with your commander -in-chief. He just doesn't seem to have the balls to do the right thing when it comes to war. I'd bet if the dubbya started unloading some nukes on these terrists we'd all be waving little flags and singing patriotic songs and attending parades.

Quit complaining to us weak impotent puny commies. Call dubbya right now and demand a war that all Americans can rally around.

WW11 was a WORLD WAR,not a regional conflict/police action/humanitarian mission from God.
If the US really wanted it over now,it could be.You know it.

I have an idea. Let's all comb our libraries for anything about the British imperial experience and mail them to Rumsfeld.

I'd be willing to bet that the first Americans to stand up and fight against Hitler were lefties.Think of the Abe Lincoln brigade that fought in Spain.Canadian lefties volunteered for Spain in the Mackenzie-Papineau regiment.If you want to talk about WWII proper the first Canadians called up included my grandfather who was an ROTC artillery officer.He shipped out for England in august 1940 and didn't get home until the fall of 1945.He was a member of the Liberal Party.

Of course political views back then don't always mirror todays political views.An oldtime socialist who protested for safe working conditions,humane work hours and fair wages would want to kick the behinds of todays activists for harm-reduction heroin,welfare and free housing.

A better parallel would be with the Philippines or Cuba for us, and lots of other places for the British. What's scary is that Bush's boys thought liberating Baghdad would be the same as liberating Paris. Hey George, did you read ANYTHING at school? You had to be sober some of the time!

I don't see many British parallels. Palestine and Aden, maybe. Not Malaya, not Konfrontasi, not Mau Mau, not EOKA.

The Philippines and Cuba are on the point, though.

It is amazing, I say
pinko-yellow-bellied-b@stards and they all come out to play. tongue.gif ;)

yorgie, you are not included in this mix, for your statement about how the liberals from 50 years ago would kick the behinds of the liberals today was great!!! :D :D :D

Why do you say that, Andrew? I thought the British Imperialists had to deal with this kind of thing all the time. Iraq in the 20s, Kenya in the 50's (why not the Mau-Mau?), Malaysia in the 40s, and of course the Indian Mutiny of 1854. There was chronic unrest in the Pashtun area. The list goes on and on. There was always some kind of rebellion going on in one or the other of the colonies. It's amazing the Empire held together as long as it did, considering how weak the imperialist forces really were. They must've known a thing or two about dealing with insurgencies.
