    AKA, FDR sells out the US for the war machine, following in the footsteps of the "progressives" before him...

    True, but you know that WW-II would never have been won by the allies if the US didn't get into it. The American people were sick of war after WW-I and no way would they have agreed to join the allies without a mighty slap in the face that the Japanese were goaded into doing.

    Plus, if America wasn't in it, there would probably have been no Manhattan project and then you know who would have had the atomic bomb and the entire planet under their thumb.

    Are we nearing anything different today?

    History repeats...from serfdom, to revolution and freedom, to serfdom again...

    Yesterday it was the Axis powers, today it's most of the world...tomorrow???
