    The Axis declared war on us, not the other way around, and only idiots still try and peddle the Liberty bullshit as some deliberate attack on the U.S. by bloodthirsty Zionists.

    Grow the **** up already.

    Well, in looking at his posts, it seems like he is a huge "White Pride" monkey, and hates Jews, Indians, and anybody else not "White".

    Just another proof of why marrying your sibling is illegal.

    Why didn't the U.S. and Britain go to war after the U.S. killed a dozen British soldiers in an air strike in Desert Storm in 1991?

    In war, people get killed by their own side all the time.

    Grow up.

    Israel paid the equivalent of about $60M in 2020 dollars to the survivors of the men killed, the men who were wounded, and the US gov't.

    Same reason why we didn't go to war with Russia over 007.

    Our politicians do not bow to Britain. They bow to Israel.

    That's ridiculous. Once again Israel paid the U.S. back both in terms of monetary compensation and massively in terms of support for the U.S. in the war in Vietnam.

    You can not buy lives. Israel constantly drains the US tax payer of money.

    Israel's actions after the attack on the U.S.S. Liberty probably saved the lives of hundreds of American pilots in Vietnam.

    .

    You already know the reason...

    Per the Orwellian law in "Animal Farm"...

    All animals are equal...
    but some animals are
    more equal than others.

    Interesting. Genuinely.

    You should start a thread about it.

    That's a war we should have avoided.

    I get that you don’t like what Israel does.
    But, it absolutely makes no sense to compare the attack by Israel on the naval ship USS Liberty to WW2.

    there is no credible argument that the attack on Pearl Harbor was some giant oops.

    Why didn't Britain go to war with us when we shot down their aircraft in Desert Storm?

    They transferred a number of Migs they had captured to the U.S. for evaluation to allow the U.S. to develop proper tactics to use in Vietnam.

    FDR set up Pearl Harbor as the perfect target.
    The Japanese saw the plum so ate it.
    Our ship should not have been attacked. Israel admitted it and made restitution as to money damages.
    They will never live down that attack.

    FDR decided to try making Pearl Harbor a target trying to bait the Japanese. That worked.
    He also tried sinking some of Hitler's subs but that gambit did not pay off when he did that.
