Many people are eager to hurl abuse at the US for going to war, but if you stop and look at the history behind the reason, most of the time it has been to cover up for a mess left by the French.

A case in mind is the Ardennes campaign that started yesterday, in 1944. The US forces had to mobilize in what become known as “The Battle of the Bulge” because the French said the Germans couldn’t drive tanks through the forests – tell that to the 90,000 US soldiers who lost their lives, and the families who still grieve.
