"Happy D-Day" is kind of a fucked up sentiment.

"Happy D-Day" is kind of a fucked up sentiment.

Why is it? D-Day was the beginning of the liberation of Europe.

Because it's a military operation that cost thousands of lives. We remember it solemnly for their sacrifice, not to eat cake and dance to the rock and rolls.

Meh. Sacrifice, and for what? What did they achieve that's worth remembering? The Russians had already won the war; all the western front did was to expedite it a bit, but it was over for the Germans by about 1942/1943, before the US even touched North Africa let alone Europe. The seeds of Germany's destruction were sewn long before American involvement, as their mistakes (particularly lying in the micromanagement of strategy by the political class) were too numerous and too devastating by then to be corrected. Crete, Leningrad, Stalingrad, Kursk, all of these major defeats had already occurred.

And I do believe we should eat cake and masturbate to women/whatever else in any number of worthy pornos any time of the year, no matter if some battle was waged on that day or not. Or having sex. Or doing drugs. Or getting shit faced. Life is no fun if one is not killing themselves slowly.

Sacrifice and well-organized attacks wasn't all. Luck played a huge part, if you know the history behind it. I don't feel like typing paragraphs about it

Why isn't their a day dedicated to when the Russians finally took Stalingrad, or took Berlin? Because we all know America didn't do much in that war, just swooped in near the end and took all the glory. Like the first world war... <_<

Hey there, guy who doesn't know how to inhale smoke. I shrugged off the large historical inaccuracies that you made/implied but when I read "took all the glory", I decided I'm going to call you a dumbass.

You're a dumbass. No competent leader would decide to invest considerable resources into a war for the purpose of being internationally venerated.

America's never had a competent leader....

Jokes aside it's all comparison, sure what America threw into the war was large compared to modern times, but compared to what the U.K. and Russia lost in the war America did nothing, yet it seems to get all the glory.

Yeah, you missed my point. How about this: No leader, especially the incompetent bumblefuck named FDR, would make a war effort to get all the glory that will be amassed when future generations read their history books and circle jerk over victories.

True, but it's still a sacrifice worth remembering. And you could argue that the seeds of German destruction was Hitler's rule itself, so are all the lives of WW2 in vain just because Hitler fucked himself over?

There is, and it's honored in Russia. Just like D-Day is honored in the US, the UK and Canada - the countries involved in it. And bull-fucking-shit we didn't do much in that war. Say that to all the WW2 vets, you prick. And did you forget the war with Japan? Sure, we didn't do as much in Europe, but who the fuck said we did? People honor the Allies, not just the U.S. And we didn't take the "glory" of the first world war, and neither did anyone claim or think that. It just set us up as a significant world power after.

America's never had a competent leader....

You're a fucking idiot.

Very true, but no one claims that the U.S. did more - that's just your anti-American sentiment talking for you. And by the way, the memorial of D-Day honors all the Allied Expeditionary Force - not just the U.S. And if you wanna talk about losses in wars, you could argue that Germany lost the most. And Russia lost more than anyone in terms of civilians. No claimed that the U.S. "lost the most" in the war.

Ok I don't know how to do multiple quotes... sorry if it's gonna be a bit hard to follow.

Frefa: Ok, I really don't understand your point in relation to what I have said.

Sidra: Don't talk about the war in Japan, because you just launched some fucking nukes, the casualties America sustained in the Pacific Theatre were very small still in comparison to what the British/Russians had. Plus I would never ever celebrate a victory which was ended by killing around 200,000 civilians! When your arguing FOR America it would do you well NOT to mention the Pacific Theatre.

The jokes aside was mean't for the "America's never had a competent leader." I was trying to keep this a debate and not an argument.

No but the American's are celebrated the most widely, and your probably right, it's because we are in America/Canada/U.K.

I just think we should be celebrating every country, especially the Russians. I know that kinda sounds crazy, but they lost the most in that war, and that led to what that country is today. If they didn't hold back the Germans then the Germans would have moved all those soldiers back the the Western front, and A LOT more lives would have been lost. Germany may have actually won.

Dudeeaterkiller you speak as though all the U.S. DID was drop bombs on Japan, there was a bunch of stuff that happened way before they dropped the nukes. (Also to do multiple quotes click on reply as you normally would then copy the quote and either go back or in a new tab bring up the other person you want to reply to and past the first quote above or below the quote of the second guy, and when it comes to quoting one person multiple times keep the original quote intact and copy and past and delete the sections of words you don't want to reply to until you've achieved your goal! (And then of course delete the original quote) There may be an easier way to it, but I'm unaware if there is.)

Freaking christ (or science if your Maxx) guys some of you are acting like America ran into the war and raped and murdered a bunch of people, hell I feel like I'm about to start talking about the Iraq war here, but whatever.

Can't we just put aside whether or not you agree with what happened in WW2? Fuck the politics behind it! This day isn't meant to honor that side of it, its simply meant to honor the men (and women) who lost their lives and their limbs and their friends and their family's to fight someone who was generally regarded as a very bad man. We are talking about the PEOPLE who were there (Keyword PEOPLE) the least we can do is show some respect to them.

ok your right, this day is about the people who fought, so I'm sorry Frefa and Sidra. I just wanted other countries to be celebrated as well.
