The disrespect you show the valiant struggle the British and Irish (yes lots of our grandfathers played their part) endured during the WWII is astounding for a man of your generation.
The way you refer to the American winning the war totally neglects all the great efforts put in by the British, Irish, French, Dutch and other countries. Who cracked the Enigma codes and saved countless American Navy men.
I acknowledge the important role America played but to speak of it like you do, as if it was a kids game to be won or lost also does a disrespect to America's fallen heroes too.
A bit of quite reflection on July 4th would be more appropriate that the bragging you enegage in.
