    first of all, Germany didnt start WWI... serb-seperatists did. WWII... japan was in china etc way before germany attacked the low countries / France... and really, can we blame them for wanting to kick france's azz? I mean, who doesnt??!?!?!! In any event, one scary thought for the day... many of hitlers goals were/have been achieved by the germans. main goals: removal of jews from german lands... check. germanic economic hegemony over europe... check. germanic political control of the continent... only a matter of time... what you think the EU is all about?!

    the ovens may no be operational, but Europe is still anti-semitic as hell... its the main reason they continue to support palestinian terrorists.

    In any event, in modern war germany is the 2nd most kick butt country ever. The US is #1. 2 out of 200+ countries isnt bad... its like stratego though.. if ur the #2, steer clear of #1. lol!

    Please explain how Germany is #2. /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif
    How many tanks, fighters, carriers and troops do they have as compared to the United Kingdom. As a matter of fact do they even have a navy?

    english expeditionary force vs germans in 1940. Not good, and at that point of the war, the allies had the heavier tanks.

    We all know the ONLY thing that saved the limeys from the germans in WW2 was the channel. If england was connected to the rest of europe, blitzkrieg would have rolled them just like they did france.

    england is a good ally and are definitely battle proven, and they have a great navy... but come on, they are #4 at best.

    iron cross is older than WW2... in fact it goes all the way back to 1813 and the wars with napolean. In any case, you're right, "old europe" sucks. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    in my defense, you dont really say what ur talking about in your initial message. In later messages I assume you were always talking about guys with iron-cross-like tats... but you didnt say anything about tats or whatever in that initial post so i figured you were talking about the medal...

    I couldn't care less if it was designed by Ivan the Terrible, the fawking thing is getting used more than a $20 whore at port call and I personally think, due to my prejudice against the master race and Europeans in general, the fawking thing is gayer than a queer at a latex pants convention.

    As for the OU logo being disgraced by being put on the stupid thing, if I see one when I'm out there in two weeks, I may have to whup some ass over it /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    I won't even bother reading the post because I'm sure I'll lose my temper. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif I'm extremely PROUD of my German heritage- proud enough to have a German Eagle tatooed on my right shoulder. In fact, the Iron Cross is the next one I'll be getting(between my shoulder blades) along with my family motto: "Fear not the Beast".

    FWIW, being proud of being German doesn't mean you believe what Uncle Adolf did was right. That's like saying because you're proud of the U.S.A. you condone what you're country did to it's Native population.

    I'm actually surprised this post came out of your mouth, Bubba. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    As explained in my PM, it's mostly intended as a joke.

    My basic premise is along the same lines as the Confederate flag thing, if it's not a part of your heritage, not fly it, wear it and don't imprint something you think that is cool onto it, aka West Coast, Orange County Choppers, Mad4wd.com, Blue Torch Fab....................................

    Now I may actually piss some people off with this comment, but some of that was necessary and if you really want to discuss this, then you better be up on your history as much as me............. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    have to agree with canmore. My great great grandfather was a German Baron... and "brown" used to be "von Braun". Nothing wrong with being german and being proud of it. Adolf Hitler was 12 years of rule out of a 1000+ year history of a culture. He brought great ruin upon germany and, because of that, he sucks... but that DOESNT take away from the other 988+ years of non-nazi history... which includes a LOT of great art, scientific achievements etc etc etc.

    germany has had some messed up leadership from time to time and they have done some messed up stuff, but we have a similarly shady past (slavery, indians, dropping nukes etc). Dont get me wrong, Nazism was absolute evil incarnate but our history is far from squeeky clean.

    born in austria, but germanic all the same. Interesting note... most school history books like to say that germany made a hostile take over of austria before WWII. In some ways this is true... BUT, after WWI the austrian people overwhelmingly voted to become part of germany when the austro-hungarian empire decintigrated. They werent allowed to because the french/english wanted a SMALLER germany, not a bigger one. At any rate, the idea that austria was "skulldugerously seized by nazi goons!" isnt exactly accurate.
