6 months later, Nov. 11 1918, Germany surrendered...Go figure.
Yeah, it's kind'a like your buddy and some other guy beating the shit out of each other in a bar fight for 15 minutes while you stand and watch. Then after both are winded and running out of stamina, you walk up, kick the crap out of the dude your buddy is fighting and then take all the credit for winning the fight. Go figure.

You are right, Dieppe was only a raid, IN FORCE, to determine the feasibility of an invasion of the Continent.
Really.
Maybe you should look into the archives at Sandhurst and the Royal War College...I have.
When did you last look? In 2012, 70 years after the raid, more information was declassified. There was never any intent to determine the feasibility of a Continental invasion.
If you have already read "A Man Called Intrepid", it hints at what Dieppe was really about. Sir William Stephenson was the senior representative of British intelligence for the entire western hemisphere during World War II. In the book he states the reason for the raid was to capture a top secret piece of German radar equipment. In reality, according to documents declassified in 2012, the object of the raid was to capture a brand new version of the German naval enigma machine that had 4 wheels for encryption instead of the 3 wheeled model the Brits already had.
One of the men behind the planning of the raid was none other than Sir Ian Fleming.
There were actually 2 aspects to the raid. The first was the land element, which was to try and capture the enigma machine. The second element was an attack on the harbour from the sea, doing as much damage as possible before scuttling a ship to block the entrance.
One of the men in charge and on the scene of this raid was a Victoria Cross recipient, whose name escapes me at the moment but IIRC his call sign was Red Ranger. You don't throw a recipient of the highest medal for valour in the Commonwealth armies into a pointless, useless exercise in futility.

The entire "to determine the feasibility of an invasion of the Continent" line of bull was the "official" version of events.
Remember, Churchill once said, "In times of war the truth is so precious she must always be jealously watched over by a body guard of lies". Sometimes those lies last for decades until things become declassified.
Personally, as a WW2 hobby-historian, I think these next three years will be rather interesting as more and more information becomes declassified.

Well I'm much flattered that you realize you'd need such a large knife to do the job but you'd need a macheté just to get through the pubic hairs on the way to the actual genitals. As often as you've stopped by for a drink I shouldn't really need to tell you that.

Don't be, the concept for employing the Bowie knife, wasn't for mitigating large genetalia; rather it was for inflicting as much collateral damage in the process as possible. You'd be left with a real gash, old creep.

SURRRE, THE STUPID PENTAGON GENERALS WANT TO FIGHT A WAR WITH INFERIOR TECHNOLOGY AND THE OUTCOME IS ALREADY KNOWN AS IT'S IN THE HISTORY OF MODERN WARFARE
<quoted text>
Shiite fighters from neighboring countries are flocking to Damascus to defend their religious sites and defend Bashar al-Assad against advancing Sunni-dominated opposition forces. Many of these foreign guerrillas fight under the umbrella group of Abu al Fadl al-Abbas brigade. They come from Iraq, Lebanon, Iran and Pakistan.

South Korea and waters around it are turning into places for display of various types of nuclear strike means of the U.S. imperialist aggressor forces and a dangerous hotbed of a nuclear war in the true sense of the word.

The U.S. high-handed hostile policy toward the DPRK aimed to encroach upon its sovereignty and the dignity of its supreme leadership and bring down its social system is being implemented through actual military actions without hesitation.

Days and months have passed on this land amid the constant danger of war but never had the whole Korean Peninsula been exposed to such danger of a nuclear war as today.

Under this situation the towering resentment of the DPRK's army and people has reached an irrepressible phase as they are all out in the all-out action to defend the sovereignty and prevent a nuclear war of the U.S.

In view of the prevailing situation the world people who love justice and value conscience are unanimously becoming critical of the U.S. and its followers for their disgraceful behavior of prodding the UN Security Council into adopting "resolutions on sanctions" against the DPRK and vocal expressing concern over the situation on the peninsula.

The moment of explosion is approaching fast. No one can say a war will break out in Korea or not and whether it will break out today or tomorrow.

The responsibility for this grave situation entirely rests with the U.S. Administration and military warmongers keen to encroach upon the DPRK's sovereignty and bring down its dignified social system with brigandish logic.

Certainly North Korea no longer merits much respect among ordinary Chinese, who have taken to insulting Kim Jong-un as "Fatty Kim" or "Fatty the Third", in reference to his father and grandfather, on the Chinese internet.

What do your masters have to hide? Why are your peasants starving while your dictator is a fat pig?
