Frankly, the nation-bashing is ridiculous. The RAF certainly could have held it's own against the Luftwaffe, but would have been very hard-pressed without the American lend-lease planes. As for being 'a concerned by-stander', we had a policy of keeping ourselves out of foreign affairs, which I don't agree with, but can understand. America, being so seperated from the rest of the world, had nothing to fear for the longest time from the Third Reich. When Japan finally launched an assault at us, we were thrown into war which we couldn't have won alone (RAF and VVS to the rescue). But yet, could Britain have invaded Fortress Europe alone? Or for that matter, beaten off Germany in the BoB and, if not, staved off Operation Sealion? The point here is that without one, the other certainly would have perished in war with Germany, but since there was support even before America entered the war, the Allies won the war hands down. So you Brits, leave America alone, because without us, you would have perished. And you American's, leave Britain alone, because without 'em, we would have had a very, VERY rough time winning our own battles. Near impossible, perhaps
There, now I've said my piece. Now, feel free to punch holes in it, as I know some will
