That's funny: the US had the jet engine in 1941 before the CIA existed.

How's that?

Sort of like your 'British captured the U505' until I prove you are full of cr@p... again?

I think you meant to say who first flew an aeroplane in controlled flight,
"The inventors of the first airplane were Orville and Wilbur Wright. On December 17, 1903, the Wright brothers made the first successful experiment in which a machine (aka airplane) carrying a man rose by its own power, flew naturally and at even speed, and descended without damage. "

Tell me, Chubby: why do history books on this planet insist the UK declared war on German?

The British Declaration of War

The British declaration of war against Nazi Germany came at 11.15 on September 3rd 1939. Neville Chamberlain spoke to the nation via radio. Britain had given Hitler an ultimatum to withdraw from Poland after the Germans invaded Poland on September 1st.

Now show us when Germany declared war on the UK...

You said that you choose your head of stayed, when you don't, so that's one lie
Then there's when you said American life don't have to pledge to a gps, when they do
You have been proven wrong so many times I'm losing count. And your still a nasty, bitter old man

Is that why britain destroyed the entire German navy,
The Germans did a better job of destroying the British Navy than the other way around, in actual fact, since the Uboats sank FAR more tonnage putting aside: The Battle of the Atlantic was fought with American and British navies, no matter how hard you stomp your feet, Packy.

The Uboats they sank did not think they were useless, nor did the thousands of cargo ships they escorted through the war, nor did the people of England who depended on the cargo the Americans brought them in the ships that Americans built, and I guess you keep forgetting Winston Churchill asked for the ships.

Then again: you continued to insist that the British sank the U505 long after been given the fact that you were... again... wrong.

Politicians?

Churchill asked FDR for the ships.

"Early in the war German warships made a number of forays into the shipping lanes, aiming to catch and destroy Allied convoys. These had limited success, and led to the loss of major ships including Graf Spee and Bismarck. From 1940 onwards, the German navy focused on escalating the U-boat war. Attacking on the surface at night (where they could not be detected by Allied sonar, or ASDIC), U-boats had great success against Allied convoys, sinking merchant ships with torpedoes and then submerging to evade the counterattack by escorting warships. They were also benefitting from decoded communications of the British Admiralty. In 1941 they inflicted huge losses, sinking 875 Allied ships.

During 1941, tactical advantage began to shift towards the British. They had received 50 American destroyers in exchange for US access to British bases. "

Let's start with who captured the U505 and work our way forward.

I said Americans; you said the British...

Then we can talk about the enigma the Americans captured, and the best bomber in the war, which you insisted was British...

Heck, we might as well start with: Is the UK a monarchy, yes or no?
