The UK did not come close to covering the actual costs- it was ten cents on the dollar.
And no, it wasn't free: 104,000 Americans died fighting in the European war.
and anyone who thinks America won WWII ETO is woefully ignorant of actual history and completely dismisses Russia's contribution to destroying Germany

I'm not the one insisting the UK is a democracy, HOney.
HOboy! Neither is any one else. You're the only one who has said that. You've then argued with yourself to the point where you believe there are actually others insisting that the UK is not a monarchy.

I am responsible for what I actually say, I'm not the jingoist who is insisting the English army had just won the war with negligible help from anyone else.

Of course, when considering the 'Russian' contribution to WWII, we should always remember they were Hitler's allies at the beginning of the war.

Of course it is stupid, you keep asking and you keep getting told that the UK is a monarchy – every single time you ask. My guess is that you have found something you are correct about and so you have become fixated on a good thing.
Not only does he become fixated on the few correct things he posts, but he lives in the past. He argues about things that happened 75 years ago and can't let go of them.

The reason he can't talk about things in today's world is that he is here 24/7 posting about the past.

Admit?
Is the UK a monarchy, yes or no?
My position has been yes, always.
No buts...
Is the UK a monarchy, yes or no?
Have you stopped raping children, yes or no?

We can play with loaded questions all day. You know full well how your question is loaded, and that is why you ran away like a little wuss last week hoping I would disappear if you ignored my explanation.

Why do you say "actions speak louder than words" in another thread then effectively demand that we take words more literally than actions in this one? Can you explain this?

Hey, don't forget, we're a christian theocracy too.

Albeit one where nearly no one goes to church and Tony Blair was made to drop god references from his speeches in order to look less mental.

Not the one who keeps bringing up the past, NymHO, and not the one who insists the Brits invented the airplane, not the one who claims the UK is a democracy, not the one who insists the English army had just won the war.

No one is making you stalk me here, HOney.

How about that there rugby match?
I don't think Scotland didn't put enough tackles in and neither did they make it count when they had their share of the play.

Then there was that giveaway try.

I'm great. My son is still learning to cope and his sense of humor makes it easier. He still has some surgeries to go but he's doing better than most in his situation. Thanks for asking.

To each and every one of you on this thread:

Happy Thanksgiving. Take care while you're driving to Grandma's house or wherever you go. Enjoy your day, your family and your friends.

This does not exclude anyone. Some things are just for 'Happy'.

Got in the air and stayed in the air with French and British government funding. If it were a commercial success, there'd be Concordes everywhere you see... 707s,737s, 757s, and 787s.

An old version of.... tennis, did you say?
So when I said MODERN tennis is British, just like soccer and golf, rugby, cricket, hockey, rounders, snooker, crouqet, and most other sports, as the very concept of modern sport was a British creation, and you said it was modern tennis is French, you were again wrong, again, again
