You need to provide a reference to exactly who it was who said that.

Obviously, they were confused; they should have been thanking the Russians.

Neither man nor woman can be worth anything until they have discovered that they are fools. This is the first step toward becoming either estimable or agreeable---and until it is taken, there is no hope.

I apologize. It was in fact the Russians who stormed the beaches of France and moved the nazis back.

Ah, Americans! Always fantasizing that they are more important than they really are!

If you have read any of my posts, you would know that I am hardly a flag waving American uberpatriot. I am highly critical of my country to the point of anger and exasperation. And if republicans regain control of congress this November, you will hear from me to the point where you, numan, will be seen as the voice of reason compared to what I have to say about the USA. So don't you ever make the mistake of labeling me as an unapologetic, blind, naive American with a superiority complex because that personality flaw comes from the Texan in me, you little pipsqueak. :P

Never wrestle with a pig. You both get covered in pigshit but the pig likes it.
"The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary."

I gave up pig wrestling a long time ago. What I'm addicted to is rolling in pigshit.
