The UK would have lost WWII had not been for the intervention of USA, and, for WWI, would have, at best, been locked into a tie in the middle of France- a tie and 8 million dead.
Hard to see the UK as gaining a thing from this tie- for the cost they paid for it.
Putting aside-again- that had not the US intervened, it would have ended a tie.
Last two hundred years?
Do let's start with the USA kicking Great Britain's ass.
Putting aside, Packy: you aren't British.
How could Britain have lost world war two, I would love you to explain yo me how Germany, who we had defeated at the battle of Britain, and sank their navy, meaning they had no way of invading Britain, and their army was being massacred in Russia, please tell me how they could possibly have beaten Britain, Germany were incapable of beating Britain, never mind their total over extended army, dead navy and defeated airforce, Germany were finished by 1941, and the German threat to Britain was over by 1940, the fact remains, no one needed America to do anything, Britain and Russia won world war two

Barebutt battyboy definitely has ocd, obsessive compulsive disorder, I have noted that he says the same phrases over and over and over
Stomp stomp stomp, when he's the one stomping
Whaa whaa, when he's the one crying
Wipe your chin, when he's the one dribbling
And slapped the snott, when he's just had his ass kicked
Is any of this normal behaviour, or is it indicative of a disturbed mind with extremely severe ocd, maybe ritalin would help, or if not, I hear they allow euthanasia is Sweden, but you would have to leave your home and talk/interact with people in a normal way, like a normal person, but you are clearly not capable for that, so to make it easier, give me your address and I promise it won't be painfull, you won't feel a thing, I'm very humane see

Britain was losing as it was, Packy.

As it was in WWI before the US became involved.

Not only would Britain have lost, they would have put up less a defense than either France or Belgium.

Hardly.

The Germans wasted time waiting for what they expected from the British: surrender. In numbers, the battle of Britain was a tie and if the Germans had wanted to push it (as they should have) they would have prevailed.

Great Britain did not come close to sinking the tonnage the Germans had sank and of course the US was already involved before the war was started (though on paper, the US was 'neutral').

And of course the Royal Navy would not have prevailed were it not for the US Navy.

Well, we certainly had a JOLLY GOOD TIME sacrificing our young men and women, along with unaccountable millions of tonnes of goods, groceries and war machines so you and the Russkies could enjoy your victory in peace!! Why don't you just consider it a "gift", say "thank you" and be done with it? Maybe send us a few crates of that delicious Shepard's Pie or a couple Faberge Eggs in way of compensation. We didn't do it expecting gratitude ... that'd be the "normal" response, but then, you "Old World" folks ain't exactly what we'd call "normal" now are ya? That's why we left. Hopefully, if Germany starts itching for a third round and you and the Russkies start whining and crying and knashing y'alls teeth in fear again, maybe we'll just kick back and let y'all hang your fools selves this time. How's your German? Sprecken sie Duetsch,Dumkopft? Auf wiedersahn!!! LOL

Americans can always be counted on to do the right thing…after they have exhausted all other possibilities.

That's rich, coming from you!

Who was it claimed that Ireland was not an island West of Britain?
Who claimed that the Sun did not rise in the East?
Who claimed that there were not 100 cents in a dollar?

What a shame we came to UK's rescue not once but twice.

The first possibility was to ignore your cries for help.
