Random Topics - World War II

World War II was a global armed conflict that was underway by 1939 and ended in 1945. It involved a vast majority of the world's nations including all of the great powers eventually forming two opposing military alliances, the Allies and the Axis. It was the most widespread war in history, with more than 100 million people serving in military units. In December 1941, Japan attacked the United States and European possessions in the Pacific Ocean, quickly conquering much of West Pacific. The war in Europe ended with the capture of Berlin by Soviet and Polish troops and the subsequent German unconditional surrender on 8 May 1945. The Japanese Navy was defeated by the United States, and invasion of the Japanese Main land became imminent. The war in Asia ended on 15 August 1945 when Japan agreed to surrender. The war ended with the total victory of the Allies over the Axis in 1945.

1 Yeah, but my point is, is that you're trying to make generations of the future feel too hard in a period of time in which they've had NO involvement in. At best, we can only be like "aw, damn, that sucks." It's like, no, we can't remember Pearl Harbor because we weren't there! No, we can't remember the Holocaust because we weren't there! The imagination of what everybody had to go through back then is not as empowering as the actual memories of going through it. I mean, think of it this way. A lot of people on the internet has crafted Hitler into a fucking meme, an internet statue for controversy and being made a complete joke. Instead of being treated like a man where he's to be the symbol of who not to be like. So, I'm predicting that once all the key figures (most of them are gone anyways), all the survivors and all the vets. Once they're gone, I'm sorry but eventually in the midst of time, WWII will slowly be just a bedtime story. Now for the people idiotic enough to say that WWII and the Holocaust didn't happen, are the complete ignorant and disrespectful. Someone should buy them tickets to fly to Auschwitz and then try to say that nothing happened. -- Submitted By: () on April 28, 2015, 9:41 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Er... you seem to be giving plenty of reasons for why we SHOULD keep talking about WWII. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 27, 2015, 9:17 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Hey asshole, I understand why the hell it had an impact. Learn to read, shallow-minded fool. You're coming off as an ignorant person who hasn't read a damn word I said. It's apparent WWII's effectiveness for U.S.A has been dimmed a bit thanks to 9/11, because we've lost that mentality prior to that event. So, almost everything was lost and soon we aren't going to have any holocaust survivors or WWII vets to help us remember. -- Submitted By: () on April 24, 2015, 8:13 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 Infyrin, You just rattled the WRONG cage! I very recently lost my father in his late 80's who was a World War II veteran. Hence not just for his sake but for the sakes of his comrades, our nation, the world and generations to come, I will talk about how and WHY this war was so vital and not leave out its shadowsides as long as I have breath in me and a single memory cell in my noggin! I used to think what you're thinking about the US Civil War but I've come to realize that it's important for us to know about all its sides and intricacies since there's not a single person in our nation not impacted by what happened 150 years ago [yes even those who had no ancestors here back then] even though I never knew anyone who remembered it [though my parents did as children]. Well, World War II has had its impact on every part of the world and it's echoes can STILL be felt so both to understand WHY and how to learn lessons to improve our world, it's vital that we keep talking about it. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 22, 2015, 12:34 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 I don't know about anyone here. But, I'm very sick of hearing about World War II. It's like, constantly on the History Channel almost 24/7. I understand the Holocaust, Pearl Harbor and everything else in World War II had such an impacting influence that still send ripples throughout time. But it's just me then that I'm tired of hearing it all. I'm sorry, I can't remember what happened back then and can't forget it because I wasn't there. The only wars I've lived through my generation were the Gulf and Iraq/Afghanistan wars and those are still fairly young to keep being brought up. I'm not saying to forget WWII entirely, I'm just saying I'm so tired of hearing it on a regular basis and I know we're gonna be talking about it for another 50 - 100 years until we have a WWIII. -- Submitted By: (Infyrin) on April 21, 2015, 8:33 am - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
6 There were a tiny number of people who openly opposed WWII, but the media put them right where they belong: buried. What a difference between today and 60 years ago. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on March 31, 2012, 1:35 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
7 If I had been in Congress back in 1941 even knowing what I know today, I would have unhesitately voted for the US to declare war after Pearl Harbor- and as a son and nephew of World War II veterans, I take a pride in how the US and its allies rallied and achieved many positive things for the world during that time and its aftermath. However; considering that at least 60 million soldiers and civilians DIED in this war, countless others were permanently physically and/or psychologically maimed by it and innumerable homes, farms and historic sites were irreperably destroyed by it; I can't pretend that this was a clean, painless, happy time. War exacts a very high price even amongst the victors- and I'm not talking dinero. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on March 24, 2012, 3:39 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
8 Problem is, the way some people are in this country today, you would have nutballs protesting outright that Pearl Harbor was an inside job, some Hollywood nutballs supporting Hitler, and people trying to divide just for their own personal gain. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on March 20, 2012, 10:49 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
9 World War II was the greatest war for the US as wars go. All other wars you could argue were purely voluntary for the U.S. We didn't have to get involved in the first World War but we did. Same for Vietnam, Korea, and the Gulf War. In 1941 we were still trying to climb out of the Great Depression and sitting back watching the rest of the world go at it. The Japanese sucker punched us and we eventually made them pay for it with interest while also kicking Hitlers arse and freeing Europe from his clutches. During WWII we didn't have a lot of pansies like we have today, bad mouthing the U.S. and denouncing war, while enjoying the freedoms the U.S. provides. Everyone, men, women, and children, old and young, came together and did the right thing and the world respected us for it. -- Submitted By: (JoeBagODonuts) on March 20, 2012, 1:21 am - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
