The sad part about wars is that if you can kill more soldiers than your enemy..you win. Meanwhile the constructors of it all sit in relative comfort while the battles rage. How fair is that?:facepalm_80_anim_gif:

Sometimes I think only veterans should be allowed to hold office and vote. I think unnecessary wars would thusly be avoided.

There was an interesting documentary on recently which basically said that the war was won in the factories. The US just out produced everyone else.

Yes, I saw that series as well. The US had an enormous output which dwarfed anything the Axis powers could produce.

Prior to the war, a Japanese general toured the USA, and he knew that Japan would lose a war with the USA (if they ever had one) because he personally observed the American capability to out produce them and everyone else.

Didn't the Japanese general say something like 'beware prodding the sleeping bear'?
