We're sorry that we've wasted your precious time, seeing as you've given us brilliant arguments so far.

Why shouldn't he? You've been telling us we're wrong and that we should think like you. You've even told us not to bother 'wasting your time'.

Yet again, you parade the same old tripe without actually saying anything of merit.

Actually, half of the quotes you attributed to me were by other people.

If you're implying that I have no respect for the Veterans of the Second World War, you couldn't be more wrong. My Grandfather spent the entire war diffusing and delivering unexploded bombs.

My Great-Grandfather fought Rommel in the Desert, and spent a years as his prisoner. So don't you ever tell me that I disrespect them.

And, more to the point, I've spoken to many American war Veterans, and they've never declared that they saved the world. They've said they were glad to help, and have never shown the arrogance that you clearly show.

In your opinion, your opinions are right? I should hope so. Still doesn't mean anyone should give a two-penny damn about them.

Oh, nice of you to disregard the Armed Forces of Great Britain, Canada, Australia, France, New Zealand, The Netherlands, Norway and Poland.

Also, the entire operation was planned by a British General (Sir Frederick Morgan). And the fact that the entire Operation was overseen and commanded by a British Officer has nothing to do with it?

Nice of you to forget those huge war cemetaries dedicated to soldiers who weren't American, too.

I repeat, I have never once said that Britain wasn't thankful to America for their sacrifices during the War. But it does not mean we have to be eternally grateful to Americans, or be your lapdogs.

The only people i'm grateful towards are the likes of Major Richard Winters, and other such veterans who gave so much.
