The war ended with a successful defense of Baltimore and restoration of American pride especially after the burning of Washington, D.C...Might have won A battle or 2 but got sent packing AGAIN!!!

NO British flags flying here

Bailed you guys out of WW1 & WW2 also...Ungrateful Brits

Well....your 'guys' 'won' the war of 'independence ' because The Empire had bigger fish to fry elsewhere & the traitors couldn't have done it without the French.

As for WW1 & 2....Great Britain & her Allies had already defeated the Luftwaffa, sunk the pride of the Kriegsmarine, defeated the itailians, had Rommel on the Run in North Africa, broken the enigma & had organised & armed the Resistance movement throughout occupied Europe long before your chaps put in an appearance. Oh & your air force bombed & strafed my Grandad & his armoured division more times than the Luftwaffe when he was touring Italy

Had we not done all that America would have had ICBM's raining down on her until they sheepishly waved the white flag, ungrateful Yanks

You are okay with 450 people dying because of a sporting event?

0.25% is still 250 people.

O.1% is still 90 people.
Blah blah blah, tired of the irrational paranoia and fear over this nonsense. Let them enjoy the race, we're all gonna die one day and unless they wheel out a 88 year old granny with 5 co-morbidities to watch Max race ain't nobody dying from Convid. Even then she has like a 95% chance hah, what a scam.

With who is occupying the White House right now we would freely let you do so

You have lost your mind if you think Canada could take the USA in anything other than curling or the winter Olympics.

Allied countries know who to call if in a bind. It damn sure isn't Canada, tho we are happy to let you play along

Says the country that let a handful of “patriots” walk all over your capitol.

“Hey world, we are a super power…just walk up the steps and takeover anytime”

All jokes aside….let’s continue the fun - we’ll take you in hockey, lacrosse, F1 - I mean come on Stroll and Latifi would walk all over anyone you could offer up - and if not I’m sure Jacques would come out of retirement and dominate just ask Ferrari

Sorry bout your Grandpa, glad he survived but we were fighting a war on two fronts without much help. Both of my uncles were Fighter Aces in the Pacific. Your narrative sounds good but Brits were just protecting their home land until we arrived and saved the day. The invasion of Europe "Operation Overlord" didn't occur without US / Canadian troops and equipment. Without us you would be speaking German right now.

Lest not forget that V2's were coming down on London and von Braun was not far away from making them rain down on America with more deadly warheads in the pipeline just around the corner and thankfully stopped with a ''concerted'' effort from the allies.
Britain made the last repayment of a WW2 loan, the 50th instalment of which £42m was to US and £10M to Canada in 2006.

Guys guys...remember that the winning of WW2 was a joint effort. That's why its called the allied side.

The biggest battles were fought, and most casualties fell on the eastern front.
Against the Russians.

And imho war really only knows losing sides. (not to mention the innocent victims; women, children, the elderly...)
The one that wins the war is the side that lost the least.

Preventing a war is the only real way to win it.

My friend, if we'd be speaking German here now then you probably would be too because ''V2''.Germany would be streets ahead in missile tech where US wasn't. Even if Pearl Harbor hadn't happened US HAD to join in.

THIS !!!

Long story in short :
As you guys know , in summer I drive through the Belgian Ardennes .
But I always stop to visit the American Soldier Cemetery !
I think It was in 2009/2010 that I met 'there one of the last American survivors of the "Battle of the Bulge"
He said to me : Young man .You can call me John !
I said : Ok Sir. I'm honored to meet you John. May I ask you how old you are ?
He said : I'm feeling younger than I look like , and we both laughed out loud !
I think John was +/- 90 YO , but still in good shape !
I said : John you returned to Belgium to meet and to pray for your American friends ?
He said : Ohhhh NO ! After the war I returned very quickly to Belgium , because during the war I met the love of my life and I promised her to return and so he married the Belgian Marie-Louise and got 2 sons !

John said he lost all his American friends here ,more than 3 weeks they were surrounded in the forrest by the Germans and 3 weeks they were hit day and night by non-stop German airstrikes .
John was deaf , he lost his hearing by the German bombs that's why he was wearing hearing aid on both sides .
The next summer I returned to John's house in the Ardennes . But now the door was pulled open by someone else...
John passed away in his sleep ! But they showed me his grave and I put flowers on his grave .
I met John twice and we drank Belgian beers ,and John told me WWII stories that you guys never wouldn't believe !

I really miss John ! Respect , they died to protect our freedom ! May they all RIP !!!
