I don't see it liberating many people unless you include liberating their spirit from their body.
By the airport we still have a street called Liberator Way where the factory used to be.
Wasn't that the same year Babe Ruth discovered the cure for polio?
You have to sound inspiring in your military names. I was part of "Enduring Freedom" but when you think about it - why would freedom be something people have to endure? Wouldn't "Enjoying Freedom" make more sense? One base I went to occasionally in Korea had the motto "War Fighters." Wait, you are fighting against war? Dude, why the fuck did you join up in the first place?
Back to celebrating terror bombing? Nice.
Watch out!! shootER will say you have no sense of humor.
I saw the post about the B-24 shooting down Yamamoto as being a flat statement of (supposed) fact. I did not see any suggestion of sarcasm or humor in it.
No. We're celebrating Freedom Bombing.
BTW, I'm sure you're an absolute delight IRL, but do you realize that if one were to go solely by your posting history here (in the Red Room at least), the only conclusion that one could come to is that you're the most miserable SOB south of the Arctic Circle*?
*If you're actually north of the Arctic Circle, then please disregard.
On my dad's first (and only) night patrol in a Widow on Ie Shima (in his "sure, I can fly anything!" days), he got into a spiral and had to pull up really hard. This caused the tail booms to vibrate so hard all the paint came off of them:
Well shuck my dern. You are that stupid.
Rick vood be schpeeking German if ve hadn't bombed ze scheiss out of ze Nazi schveinhuntz.
I'd say you were dumb as a post, but I wouldn't want to insult fencing material.
For all we know about Ol' Ricky, he'd be perfectly fine with that.
Well, I don't have a link but ISTR (I Seem To Recall) that Rick Deckard once said that he was against EVERY military action fought by the United States and United Kingdom in the 20th century.
When he quickly realized that this meant he was against fighting Nazi Germany he quickly performed a SR (self retcon- not as painful as it sounds) deleted his post and denied ever saying it.
You don't have a link because that is a lie.
And you know that because I tell you so and explain why every time you bring it up - which is a lot.
Fine. I will believe you now and in the future if you would please do one thing:
List the military conflicts in the 20th century that you believe the United States and United Kingdom were fully justified in waging to the fullest extent of their capabilities?
Firstly, basing your "belief" on my complying with your demand is disingenuous.
Secondly, my stating that fighting World War II was justified (which I believe it was) is not the same as my saying that it was justified "to the fullest extent of their capabilities", by which you're attempting to smuggle in acceptance of terror bombing, prisoner execution and whatever else.
So, fuck you. You don't get to make shit up.
Bulleting added by me for clarification.
A) Not sure what you're referring to.
B) Of course I am. Because when you start pronouncing "limitations" on the waging of a war (in this case WW2) you're basically saying "yeah the Nazis were terrible, but not so terrible"
C) Why not?
So, according to @Dayton3, saying "murdering civilians is wrong" is just the same as saying "The Nazi's weren't so bad".
I'll give that recollection all the credence it deserves ol'King o'tha Coup.
This thread is highly amusing.
How do we know he's not Mel Torme?
bowdlerized spelling aside, how many of the words in that sentence are German derivatives?
"Rick would be speaking German if we hadn't bombed the shit out of the Nazi schweinhunds."
Rick = the name Richard comes from the proto-Germanic word for "powerful, rich"
would = from Old English, so Germanic
be = from Proto-Germanic "to be"
speaking = from Proto-Germanic
German = from Latin word for "related," used when referring to Germanic peoples
if = from Proto-Germanic word for "if"
we = from Proto-Germanic word for "we"
hadn't = contraction of had (Proto-Germanic past participle of "to have") and not (from Old English, so Germanic)
bombed = from Ancient Greek
the = definite article from Proto-Germanic
shit = from Proto-Germanic for "shit, dung, diarrhea"
out = from Proto-Germanic for "out"
of = from Proto-Germanic for "if"
the (see above)
Nazi = from German abbreviation (originally a mockery) for Nationalsocialist (a member of the National Socialist German Workers' Party), here used as an adjective
Schweinhunds = German insult, literally "pig-dogs"
So, every word in that sentence was of Germanic origin, except the words "bombed" and "German."
Wait, why is pig dog an insult? Pigs are smarter, meaner and smaller than cows, meaning they are much harder to work, thus a good pig dog is worth more than a cow dog.
I didn't know there were dogs that could work pigs.
Which is why the insult doesn't make any sense. Pig dogs are pretty much cream of the crop in terms of herding dogs.
