      Hi Dean,

      I'm afraid you are displaying your ignorance of European history.

      England has been at war with France (on and off) for over a thousand years.  Germany has been a traditional ally of England throughout that time.

      It was only in 1914 that the concept of fighting on the same side as the French and fighting against Germany became a reality.

      In the above context, the quote (which is a twist on the original saying from the Napoleonic War and originally was "England will fight against Napoleon until the last drop of Prussian, Austrian and Russian blood") takes on a rather different meaning.  

      All the best,

      PS You still have not identified the freedoms that you believe you have in the USA that I am denied in the UK.

      All of the transports used by the Commonwealth troops on D-Day were made in American, As well as all of the fuel and food. Hard to run a military without those. Just ask the Soviets, we supplied the same to them.

      Never lost a war?  The shear number of young men the UK lost and were
      woundened in WWII will signalled the end of Britain as a world power.

      You may not have lost either WWI or WWII, but Britian can not take
      another "win" like those two.
