    So whats worse Commies or Nazis in charge of Fortress Europa.

    • Muzzies.

    • Answer: Muslims

    • Mark Matis

      Commies. They murdered FAR more people than the Nazis ever dreamed of. But the Commies have the effective advertising agency, while the Nazis do not.

      • Northgunner

        Wrong.

        Moslems.

        The ummah of the cult of ‘mo’ have murdered and enslaved more than 270 million men, women and children since the 7th century..and theyrr,still going strong.

        No one kills for Hitler, Stalin or Mao today, but the ummah does so everyday for their ‘perfect man’ mohammed. The others are mere pikers compared to him.

        For those who have a ‘nice Muslim neighbor/family’ living next to them..what they have in reality is a ticking jihadi bomb pack waiting for the moment to go active.

        There are NO good moslems!

    • Good question. A White Russian exile in Paris was asked what the difference was between communism and capitalism and he replied the latter was ‘man exploiting man, while communism was the exact opposite’.

      • actually, your glibness, capitalism is consistent with some large degree of public freedom. Judeo-communism – via its roots in the Tikkun Ola – is inherently murderous and totalitarian.

      • No exploitation in Capitalism, afaics.

        Purely contractual and both parties profit … I buy your widgets, which I value more than the money I pay … you get the money, which you value more than the widgets you sell. We both get the best of the deal.

        Neither of us gets a gun held to our heads.

    • Jimmy the Saint

      Plainly, the Nazis, since we fought a war to kick them out and help the Commies take over.

  2. Thanks for posting that. Needed to be done.

      Don’t worry, we won’t be finding that quality again, at least not in such numbers.

    Let us not waste such men in europe-or anywhere else – again. Not again. I fear they will be needed here in the not to distant future.

  5. The War to bail out Uncle Joe…

  6. Yes, bless them all. About nine years ago, I was privileged to meet the acquaintance of one of the “frogmen” who carried out Operation Neptune. the first men ashore on “D” day. They were called Landing Craft Obstruction Clearance Units [LCOCUs pronounced Lock-yews].

    There were a hundred and twenty of them and their object was to clear away the underwater obstructions and mines so that the assault craft could get on to the beach.

    My friend, well up in years, could still recall the horrors of that day. He had lost most of his hearing doing the demo work then. Courageous beyond measure.

    A more gentle and compassionate man I have never known. He became very successful and wealthy in life and has shared his great fortune by establishing schools and hospitals throughout the South.

    A “double-hero” in my book.

    • Time cords burn a little faster under water – Pressure,
      depending on depth. Usually good to add 10% more
      time.

  7. IMO, the bravest were the ones that went in after the first wave. For the first wave, I would guess they new it would be rough but did not know what a literal slaughter it would be but from the sounds and as word surely spread when the boats came back; those later waves knew that they were probably going to die that day and it might be extremely painful.

  8. And we are at a place and time where I would bet heavily the majority of high school graduates could not tell you what happened on June 6, 1944.

    It’s up to us, and us alone, to train and educate the next generation; aka our replacements.

    • “the majority”? In my experience with University of California student cab-fares, the knowledgeable # would be 1 out of 500. On ANY topic.

  9. excellent write-up on the worst part of the Omaha Beach landing. The German beach defenses there and at the other 4 beaches were more or less intact because Eisenhower attempted to do the landing w/o tactical – i.e, naval divebombers – preliminary air support, and instead relied on medium bombers…most of which missed well inland. Some of Eisenhower’s longstanding hostility to the the Navy may have derived from a friendly-fire catastrophe during the 1943 Siciliy landings, when trigger-happy U.S. naval gunners shot down about two dozen paratroop-carrying C-47’s. Such is war.

    My uncle, rest his soul, did over 2 years of infantry work in WW2. He was quite a man.

  11. Skip Fanning

    Dear Old Fart Dad used to get mindlessly drunk every D-Day. I Finally found out in the 1980’s that his C-47 was shot down and he was the lone survivor and he spent 63 days a POW. Got loose and made it back for the Market-Garden jump. I think he would have paid his own way to get back at them.
    The tough bird stayed on 30+ years to fight four additional wars. I think I’ll take up his glass tonight!

  12. Mr. Frosty

    I know they had the best of intentions and I know they were lied to.

    When all is said and done, they fought for (((Communism))) and against Nationalism.

  13. Detroit III

    Stop pumping WW2.
    SHIT.GETS OLD.

    • Sort of like your comments. STFU. As usual, you have less than nothing to add to the discussion. You and your ilk let one of our great cities turn into a 3rd world shit hole. Go back to pumping your tiny dick.
      You’re an asshole, Detroit. Go kill yourself.

  14. Those guys didn’t have the internet to educate themselves about the scam…

    God bless ’em.

    • Northgunner

      No, unfortunately they didnt..nor did they listen to Smedley either! They were indoctrinated and duped into fighting (not to mention enslaved via the draft..a euphemism for ‘we own your life..fight for the empire helot!).

      I agree with bit Josie and Larken, “Thank the troops for what?!”

    • I’m sure God did and does bless them. You have the internet, tfat; so educate yourself and pray when the time comes your balls are as big as your mouth.

    • Jim Klein

      Right, which is why it’ll be different this time. Not good news at all for evaders.

      The War to Save Josef Stalin…who won anyway? I only know who lost.

    On public leftist TV of all places they ran a great one hour documentary about D-day narrated by Bill Bellechik of all people (father a vet)

    Sometimes I think Ike was a war criminal for the Normandy Landings.

    Hey, Haxo, were you ever a cop in Crockett, California?
