Well, yeah. The allies had the axis pushed back, the only problem was that they ran out of supplies. The mouse was cornered but the cat had no claws.

And even if you believe that America won the war; it was a group effort, it wasn't "America and the allies", it was the allies, all five of them.
#31 - verby (09/01/2013) [-]
Right, but America joining was the critical point in the war. Hell, even the American supplies were what kept Britain and Russia in the war for so long. Even still, without Pearl Harbor Stalin would never have been able to move his Siberian troops into Moscow, and Germany would have won the battle. Without US naval power in the Pacific, the Japanese would have expanded their conquests all the way into Australia. The best Europe would have been able to hope for was the eventual collapse of the German economy.
Of course, it's not like the US would have been able to win all alone either, they could have stemmed the tide but not single-handedly attacked the German, Italians and Japanese
User avatar #41 - klaes (09/01/2013) [-]
Do you even Stalingrad?

To claim the US rolled in and won the war is ignorant. The turning point of the war was when the German Sixth Army fell.
#74 - verby (09/02/2013) [-]
You need to brush up on your history. Russia won Stalingrad after the troops that had just successfully defended Moscow reinforced the city. And America was making major contributions to the war before they formally entered, under the lend-lease act, the United States was providing the Allied armies with armaments and supplies crucial to their war efforts.
Also, let's not be silly. Everyone knows that Germany had like 20 opportunities to win the war but didn't capitalize on them because they sucked massive donkey dick
User avatar #75 - klaes (09/02/2013) [-]
Yes, I am aware of what happened in Stalingrad. I'm saying that Operation Uranus and the defeat of the German Sixth Army had a large part to play in the allied victory of WW2. Additionally, a shitload of historians consider this a turning point, at least in the European front.

Was America making major contributions under the lend-lease? Yes. Did they single-handedly win the war/save Europe? No. If you read my comment right under Enemy's, I state my point of view on this pretty clearly.


I do agree with you on your second point, though Germany fucked up bad. Although they were stopped fair and square by the British at the Battle of Britain(to be fair, Luftwaffe had a huge fuel disadvantage in that battle, plus escorting bombers is a bitch for dogfights), they fucked up when they made it a two front war.

Basically, they Napoleoned it.
#76 - verby (09/03/2013) [-]
Well, Germany should have rocked Britain's shit at Dunkirk and been done with it. There was also multiple times the Germans could have turned back the Russian counterattacks, but did not. They also should never have invaded Russia but that is another conversation.
My first point was that Operation Uranus would not have been possible without the United States in the war, due to the aforementioned Siberian troops being unavailable. In reality, it was a group effort. If any of the "big three" were not present, a German victory would have been imminent. Or, you know, Russia taking over most of Europe. Either way it would have sucked.
I will always maintain that the Pacific was dominated by combat between the US and Japan though.

" Did they(United States) single-handedly win the war/save Europe? No"
Was my point from the start, and the reason I was arguing in the first place. Glad we came to a compromise on that.


I won't argue against US dominating the pacific, though. That would be silly.
#78 - verby (09/06/2013) [-]
No, I was arguing that lacking the United States, the Axis would have won the war in Europe. I'm also asserting that if any of the "big three" were missing, the Axis would have won in Europe. It was a magnificent group effort
User avatar #79 - klaes (09/07/2013) [-]
Aye.

_ single-handedly_

I'm not denying that they played a crucial part, they did. I'm just against the notion that it was only the United States, as the previous commenter implied.
#80 - verby (09/07/2013) [-]
I think the US was more powerful than Germany, so if they started fighting them right away they would have a good shot
User avatar #81 - klaes (09/07/2013) [-]
Depends on what year you're comparing the two. If we're talking pre- Pearl Harbor and the rush to build the military then I'd disagree with you. If we're talking about the US at their peak and Germany at their peak, agreed.
#82 - verby (09/07/2013) [-]
Oh yeah, that's true.
User avatar #83 - klaes (09/07/2013) [-]
Well, it's been nice debating(is that the correct word?) with you. Usually this kind of thing turns into a nationalistic fest instead of an actual rational discussion. Good day to you sir
User avatar #43 - EnemySpy (09/01/2013) [-]
I agree with you, to an extent. The US didn't roll in and win the war. They were a big part though, fighting on both fronts and whatnot.

I think it's important to keep in mind that America didn't even want to be involved in WWI. WWII comes around and America is like "Ffs Europe just leave me alone. >:l" There was some internal conflict that lead to America sending supplies due to old alliances and whatnot, but still being all grumpy and wanting to not be a part of the conflict. Then Pear Harbor comes around and America is like "EURRRRGH FUCKING DAMNIT GUYS."
User avatar #45 - klaes (09/01/2013) [-]
Oh, I agree that they played an important role. I just don't like the righteous "the best Europe would have been able to hope for was the eventual collapse of the German economy from above." I personally believe that Europe would have won the war without the United States, just it would have been far costlier and more devastating as far as loss of human life and resources go.
User avatar #30 - azumeow (09/01/2013) [-]
If Hitler hadn't started a two-front war with the USSR and Japan hadn't decided to keep up their conquer-boner and attack the US, the world would be a much different place.

Let's just leave it at that. While it was an effort on the part of all the Allies, if you take the two most militaristically powerful ones out of their (Merica because we literally didn't suffer from the war and the USSR because they gave 0 fucks about lives lost) and it would not have ended nearly as well.

But yeah, I agree that it was Merica saving the world. It probably would have ended similarly in Europe without our intervention.
User avatar #47 - Loppytaffy (09/01/2013) [-]
Japan joined the war because America did. It was retaliation for the sake of pre-empted self defence.

thats how its been. its more aimed at making white people seem like were all bad. if i was to go into the hood id get jumped because im white. today people view being white as a weakness when really its no more of a weakness than being black or asian. the black dudes that know me personally dont make jokes about me being white because they know that i am more athletic than most them. some black people that dont knowq me though make assumptions that just because im white i cant dance or fight or run fast, which sure i cant dance but i can do the other 2 just fine if needed. if i was to say something about a black dude in my class not being able to read properly because hes black id be suspended or expelled but if it was gym class and he makes fun of me because i suck at basketball cuz im white everyone laughs

theres no such thing as "politically correct" once you think of it. i mean look at politics. now ik its not entirely what the political part of politically correct is but for the sake of the argument lets pretend. there are so many opinions being tossed around in politics and none of them are technically correct because opinions cannot be proven right or wrong on any criteria beyond what someone thinks and feels
#128 - damoclese (08/31/2013) [-]
Fair enough. But I meant the whole social mentality that it is beyond ok to speak about race or gender unless you are supporting "equality". The accept ion has always been that it's ok to joke about race or gender, but not have a different opinion.
This seems like an attempt to make it unacceptable to even joke about it by making us assholes.
