Thank you for that read Allison.
Wikipedia is a lot more accurate than Allison's posts. Perhaps you would care to show where it is in error...was there no French Indian War? Perhaps you would support Ward Churchill...if so, why?
Take a look at the non-attributed screed posted as fact:
"In 1997, around 1.1 million German soldiers were still officially listed as missing. According to the recently opened Soviet archives, which have been proved to be extremely precise and detailed, the Red Army captured 2,389,560 German soldiers. Of these, 423,168 died in captivity. In October, 1951, the West German government stated in the United Nations that 1.1 million soldiers had not returned home. In other words, we were led to believe they had died in Soviet camps. If we subtract the proven number of deaths in Soviet camps from the missing in Germany we arrive at the figure of around 677,000. Where are these men?. They must have been interned by the western Allies, the greatest majority being held in American and French camps where they died in their thousands through deliberate starvation, disease and hard work."
REALLY? We killed 677,000 Germans and no one noticed? Every missing German was a POW killed by Americans?
You find THAT believable?
Yes, it is a pity one doesn't have to go further in research than Wiki to show how false the claims are. Perhaps if some here would read Wiki before posting anti-American rants, they could at least realize not everyone buys their version of history. In fact, almost no one does...
