Russia’s Life-Saver: Lend-Lease Aid to the U.S.S.R. in World War II

1059

‘The United States is a country of machines. Without the use of these machines through Lend-Lease, we would lose this war.’ ―Josef Stalin (1943), quoted in W. Averell Harriman and Elie Abel, Special Envoy to Churchill and Stalin, 1941-1946, Random House, N.Y., 1975, p. 277 The United States shipped more than $12 billion in Lend-Lease aid to Stalin’s Russia during World War II. Materials lent, beginning in late 1941 before the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, included airplanes and tanks, loco…

> and a culture known to the world for something else than being fat, unhealthy, aggressive, and pathetically stupid.

Our culture is known to the world for being responsible for basically every major invention since the end of WWII. For giving the world Blues, Jazz, Rock and Roll, Hip Hop/Rap, and electronic music. For having the most influential and pervasive modern culture in terms of music, film, TV, and books. We invented the internet. This site you’re on right now is American. Pretty much every major internet site is American.. Youtube, Google, Facebook, Yahoo, Wikipedia etc…

Yeah, our culture is only known for being fat, unhealthy, aggressive and stupid. Or… maybe that’s what brainwashed people like you believe as part of your efforts to cope with being inferior to the US in countless ways and butthurt that you’re dependent on us militarily, politically, technologically, and even culturally? You have to depict the US in unrealistically negative ways because the truth would damage your pride.

> Contributing to WW2 from beginning to end is also a national pride, and not joining right at the end, when all the major battles were won. Ah, England.

You have absolutely no idea what you’re talking about, you’re just mindlessly regurgitating revisionist history designed to help you avoid acknowledging that you were losing in WWII before the US entered the conflict.

It’s really stupid when people like you say the US didn’t show up until the last minute in WWII when it was the US joining that CAUSED the war to end quickly (oh and the US joined the allies in 1941, the US was a participant for the majority of WWII). The allies were losing across the board before the US entered the war, by the way. Look at a map of Axis-held territory up until the very moment the US joined, you’ll notice the Axis territory was expanding until the US entered with troops, and then began to recede and collapse immediately afterward. The allies would have lost if the US didn’t do anything. Only liars or idiots will deny that.

Also, the US was the only country to fight significantly in every theater of war. The US did the most in N. Africa, the Med, Italy, and then Western Europe post D-day, while simultaneously fighting Japan on the other side of the world will very little help. The US did a whole hell of a lot more to help the allies against Germany than the help the US received against Japan. And the US did this while supplying not only its own military but all of the allies with literally the majority of their war material.

Let’s quote Stalin himself, who is just about the last person who would benefit from admitting the importance of the US:

‘The United States is a country of machines. Without the use of these machines through Lend-Lease, we would lose this war.’ —Josef Stalin (1943)

People always say the Soviets won WWII (and then there’s delusional twits like you who think the UK did). But the Soviets only began to make offensive progress after US-provided war aid began flooding in, and after the US opened the second front in Europe (something Canadians and Brits failed to do on their own without the US, in the disaster later euphemistically called the ‘Dieppe Raid”). A liberaiton of western Europe would not have occurred without the US. Was the liberation of France not a major battle? It was, and the US contributed the bulk of forces.

Look at this map of army deployments in France in WWII.

Simpson, 9th Army (USA)

Dempsey, 2nd Army (USA)

Hodges, 1st Army (USA)

Patton, 3rd Army (USA)

Patch, 7th Army (USA)

Bradley, 12 Army (USA)

Montgomery, 21st Army (UK)

Crerar, 1st Army (Canada)

The US did way, way more than your country did in WWII. Get a grip on reality and realize that you’re taught a bunch of lies to help you cope with playing second fiddle to the US. You hate on Americans because your history with us is quite embarrassing to you. We defeated your empire in a war, then later saved your country in two world wars, and now the only power you have left in this world is contingent upon your relationship with the US.

Cry about it some more, limey.
