The reason we celebrate the 4th of July is because that's when we sent the riff raff out of our country and sent them back to that little Island called England to their leaders they call King and Queen . What was it like to be sent home with your tails between your legs and then 70 years later having us come back and save your asses from Hitler and his bunch of wussies. 

Just be happy we didn't come to England and throw the royal asses out of the country tarred and feathered. That would have been to good for them as we should have just Hung them by the neck along with all the worthless military slavers we sent back to you with their tails between their legs.

How does it feel that the free people of the USA could wipe your little Island off the face of the Earth with the push of a button. Aren't you glad we decided to feel sorry for your worthless  Royals and let them Live.

It wouldn't take much to make your LITTLE Island a resort for our summer vacations except for the fact we don't want it and we let you keep it.:rant:.

U.S.A. Forever

Actually, if it weren't for the French the United States wouldn't exist in it's present form.  They supplied: Military uniforms, boots, rifles, at least 75% of the gunpowder, military training, diplomatic inroads,  diplomatic training, naval escorts for merchant ships trading with Europe, supportive naval interference of teh British heading this way...just about anything you can imagine that was needed in a conflict they provided.  To hear you tell it, a bunch of farmers were gonna win it single-handed.  Also, there was no active conflict between the U.S. & the U.K. in the late 19th century as you purport.  And the U.S. had a nascent naval fleet at best & was in no condition to go sailing to England or anywhere else to kick anyone's ass.

Yea in truth we were very stretched with our empire at that period and we gave up America to keep India, probably out of greed. Remember, even if you don't like it, your founding fathers were  predominantly from the UK, I live near Washington hall. If they had known about gold and latterly oil etc. it would have been much much different believe me.

Considering your hatred of your President it is no surprise that you are different, wanting to nuke us, kill our Royals etc etc. When you make us a resort look me up, I'll find a nice place for you, because intellectuals like you deserve it.

To be sure, France helped the colonists out of a grudge with England, having lost no less than two recent colonial wars to them, so they teamed up with Spain to work the British naval fleet over before they even hit the high seas; the United States was a convenient tool used to pull England's resources away from other extant contended territories; the U.S. was a tool in a proxy war.  Was a win-win for the U.S. as France then was motivated to sell the Louisiana Territory at a steal, being financially stretched thin.  They bet that England would pull resources away and direct them to quash the 'rebellion'; but as you say, the Crown made the wise decision and pulled resources to other more-profitable holdings such as plantations in the Carribean, etc.

On the subject of British troops drinking the ale in the White House, there is a similar story when  John Paul Jones raided Whitehaven, they made a bit of a mess of it, and the Marines headed for the pub and got drunk, warfare was very different then. The French invading Fishguard got drunk too, so stuff nuclear missiles, lets build more pubs as a defence against invasion :yahoo:

I used to ignore history at school but am now fascinated with it, especially the history of ordinary folk, not royalty, by God am I glad I was born when I was, hard hard lives they had.

I think he was under the weather when he typed this, although I applaud his patriotism it is hollywood vs reality. America did not exist, these were British people rebelling against British taxes etc, i.e. a civil war, now if you mentioned the later civil war he would go all sentimental. Sorry these weren't (yet) Americans, they were Brits who saw a chance to break away and above all profit, the leaders were anything but 'simple folk', they were opportunists. The French of course saw a great opportunity and as Frenchi and Timmah rightly pointed out sponsored it all, they in fact historically were the big losers by not gaining the control they expected. The fact is that as the superpower of the time it is us who could have 'nuked' them, but as explained earlier we had other fish to fry, our mistake.

What I would politely point out that as a relatively small nation we have kicked the arse of nearly everyone else in the world. So if you do want to come and nuke us make sure, make very sure, cos we love fighting, we don't brag, we just do.
