@ChinneryRoy @RT_sputnik @georgegalloway @francisbeckett @GayatriGalloway @RT_com @UKLabour I don't believe you've read much history of WW2... if you had you wouldn't have come out with such an uninformed statement!
1st & foremost, George is correct - Britain fought for 2 years on our own & that is what saved the world... & what America conveniently forgets! ...cont
@ChinneryRoy @RT_sputnik @georgegalloway @francisbeckett @GayatriGalloway @RT_com @UKLabour 2. There were more '#British' troops landed on D-Day than #American troops.
The #OmahaBeach disaster was the #Americans fault - They screwed up there as they did in #NorthAfrica, #Sicily & #Italy & in the #Pacific at #PearlHarbour on #Tarawa & #Pelelieu & elsewhere. ...cont
@ChinneryRoy @RT_sputnik @georgegalloway @francisbeckett @GayatriGalloway @RT_com @UKLabour 3. #USNavy CnC Earnest King caused a disaster in the #Atlantic in late 12.'41-05'42 when over 600 merchant ships were sunk in sight of US coast, because he didn't want to take #British Advice.
Of all the #American commanders only #Eisenhower & Marshall were Not Anglophobes! ..ct
@ChinneryRoy @RT_sputnik @georgegalloway @francisbeckett @GayatriGalloway @RT_com @UKLabour 4. US Generals spent most of #WW2 in-fighting with us rather than killing #Nazis!
#Russia faced nearly 75% of All Nazi forces & caused 88% of all #Nazi casualties, both dead & injured.
#Russia Won WW2.
#Japan even queries #US role in ending WW2: ..ct
@ChinneryRoy @RT_sputnik @georgegalloway @francisbeckett @GayatriGalloway @RT_com @UKLabour 5. #USA has spent 75 years telling the world in #Film they won #WW2 & mainly use #DDay #OhmahaBeach #BattleoftheBulge #Midway & the #ABomb to justify it - It's only #USPropaganda!
4:15am-ish August 9th 1945 #Russia invaded #Japanese Occupied #Manchuria & in a matter of days .ct
@ChinneryRoy @RT_sputnik @georgegalloway @francisbeckett @GayatriGalloway @RT_com @UKLabour 5. the #RedArmy destroyed a #Japanese army of over 1 Million men - Yes...Days!
They took Sth #Sakhalin & the Kurils & threatened #Hokkaido - Japan's North Island.
The Japanese were more afraid of the #Russians invading home-land than they were #AtomicBombs! - & surrendered. .ct
@ChinneryRoy @RT_sputnik @georgegalloway @francisbeckett @GayatriGalloway @RT_com @UKLabour 7. #Britain had great success, aside Montgomery, in #NorthAfrica with Gen R. O'Connor, now forgotten... & also had the largest Army in the Eastern theatre - the 'Forgotten 14th'... & they still are!... who stopped the #Japanese on #India's border & drove them out of #Burma! ..ct
@ChinneryRoy @RT_sputnik @georgegalloway @francisbeckett @GayatriGalloway @RT_com @UKLabour 8. Dead Casualties.
#Russia 27 Million, mainly civilians & of those about 18 million were Slavs... the Greatest Forgotten #Genocide in History!
USA: 416,800
GB: 382,700 but as a population % Britain's rate is far higher + the Empire Troops: 195.900
Total 578.600
No So Marginal!
@ChinneryRoy @RT_sputnik @georgegalloway @francisbeckett @GayatriGalloway @RT_com @UKLabour 9. Another myth I'd like to clarify: The Bombing of #Dresden, which for some unknown reason the stoical #British population have been saddled with since #WW2 & have a "hidden" collective guilt:
The idea was Roosevelt's wanting to help his new buddy Joe Stalin (another story). .ct
@ChinneryRoy @RT_sputnik @georgegalloway @francisbeckett @GayatriGalloway @RT_com @UKLabour 10. #RAF #BomberCommand & #USAAF were tasked with taking out & disrupting the German retreat by screwing with their infrastructure... & several cities were chosen, #Dresden was just one. It was bombed on 2 consecutive Nights by #RAF & 2 consecutive Days by #USAAF who Kept Quiet!
@ChinneryRoy @RT_sputnik @georgegalloway @francisbeckett @GayatriGalloway @RT_com @UKLabour I left the #WW2 Allies Section 'unfinished' - Apologies.
