Thanks for your reply. But I live in a country in which it is not uncommon to drive 60 miles and more to work.
And didn't Mr. Chamberlain sell out Czeckoslavkia. And didn't the french sit out "the phoney war" And unless I miss my guess, weren't Stalin and Hitler, the devil's pair allies until Hitler's madness led him to attack Russia. And wouldn't Stalin have made a nice place of Europe. And finally, if the USA had not supplied Britain with vitally needed supplies and then our young men, you'd be sprechen auf deutsch or perhaps Russian.
Don't forget 9/11. It didn't happen to you. And don't forget that the U.S. Marshall plan made it possible for Europe to survive the devastation wreaked by Hitler.
Sorry, but, I get quite bitter over those who neglect the very real fact that the U.S.A, for all it's gas guzzling, does in fact keep the peace, for what it is, these days.
I apologize for going so jingoistic, but...
Well here comes another rant. Sorry, and thanks for the reply. By the way, what's a litre? Cockeyed.
