Not sure I see the funny side of it :flowers: , Obviously drawn by a Yank because of certain parts of it and seems to be how all Yanks see WW2 compared to the Rest of the World. It shows one part as Britain asking America for help in the War and America replying with "Hey look Brit, I can't win all your wars for you. And I really don't care" if I remember my History Lessons correctly we asked for War Materials obviously which we paid for, not for America to join the War, we could more than handle ourselves against Germany as we proved for both World Wars.

There's even part of it showing Britain getting elbowed by America and America saying to France we liberated you from Germany i.e. showing the way some Americans think they did everything in the war and saved everyone, Yes I do recognise America did a lot to help in the World Wars and has done ever since with War Materials (Sometimes for both sides in case of the War in Vietnam) and Loans but the Commonwealth Soldiers did do quite a lot in WW1 and a sizeable chunk in WW2, Don't forget America didn't join the wars in Europe until around 3 years into the wars i.e. 1917 in WW1 1 year before the War ended and near the end of December 1941 in WW2 the war at that point had been going for over 30 months.

To be honest more times than not I can see funny sides of things but I certainly don't see the funny side to the picture and slightly disgusted :thumbsup:

It wasn't that funny, but you interpreted most of it correctly.. Except for the Brits asking for help.. America joined because of Pearl Harbor.
Who said I couldn't have everything?

I dunno -

here in America we would have referred to "Russia" as USSR, not CCCP, wouldn't we?

It would be interesting to know who created it.


I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!

If I have read correctly in the Russian Cyrillic Alphabet it was CCCP but if translated to English it was USSR, So I would assume only the Russians called it CCCP.

In regards to the drawing, the CCCP was probably used as the official name because that was what it is in the Russian alphabet.

Because the CCCP is there it doesn't mean an American hasn't drawn it just that they are using the Official name as it was said in the Cyrillic Alphabet.

Just been searching on Google while writing this and this confirms the CCCP thing - http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_does_cccp_mean

I guess I'm corrected the person who drew it looks to be Canadian, this must be where DaChew quoted that information from - http://angusmcleod.deviantart.com/

The Image link at the top is on the second page of his gallery here - http://angusmcleod.deviantart.com/gallery/#_featured--2

Yes - CCCP = USSR.


I believe most Americans would still use USSR though.

Canadians are "North Americans", in the vernacular, I believe.

My bro-in-law served his last tour overseas in UK about 10 years ago, whenever he was out at a pub or eatery? in his dress officer's uniform, some eldery Brit who remembered WW2 would send over a drink, once one from a 250$ bottle of scotch.

He wasn't even born back then but they would come over later and tell him they made a habit of showing their gratitude for what America had done during the war.

One generation lived that history, I have only studied it for 40 years.

Those who do not study history are doomed to repeat it.

Actually I'm wondering when Steven Spielberg will make his next war epic ' How we won the Battle Of Hastings' ;-)
