lets see now - Dunkirk was june 1940 when the allies ran away from those nasty germans and hid in England until when was it. June 1944?

Wow

4 years until they worked up the nerve to get back in there

Of course by that time the russians had lost 20 million

Seems you don't know much about WW2. Did you hear what happened to Coventry? It was much more than Germany and Russia believe me! Sometimes "better to remain silent and appear a fool, than to open ones mouth and remove all doubt".

Not to be personally offensive, but in general:
How can someone look dumb when they open their mouth and their head disappears?

I think that's called "Vacant" maybe.

I think that is a slight simplification, although both Germany and Russia were heavily involved, I think the Allies deserve most of the credit for winning that war and Churchill in particular. I don't know the details of the Russian fatalities but perhaps Stalin was more to blame for that than the actual war.

Britain also did not fall to the Germans and that radically changed the course of history back in 1940.

I'd guess a lot of them aren't warriors.

Counting Trump's lies: Daniel Dale's relentless quest to fact-check the president

Dale has documented 5,276 false statements since Trump's inauguration

What was the moment when you decided that you needed to publicly fact-check Donald Trump?
It was September 2016 ... and there was a day when I just became frustrated that Trump was saying so many things that weren't true, and this wasn't being treated really as an important story.
Reporters were sometimes fact-checking him on Twitter, but if you were to read their story online or [in the] next day's paper or watch the news, people weren't being told that one candidate in this race was being overwhelmingly, serially, frequently dishonest.
So I thought I'd just do it informally, take a little screenshot, make a list on Twitter, and the response was just so big. I had no idea that there would be a reception like this."The thing with Trump is that he says some of these things so many times that once you fact check it five or 10 times, you just know it."



But Trump — and Rob Ford before him — doesn't care when he's caught in a lie. There's some evidence that his supporters don't care. And the people who don't like him already think he's lying all the time anyway, so what do you think you're achieving by documenting all of them?
Those are fair points and I think it's hard to know with any certainty what I am achieving.
I'd say a couple of things: One, I think we can be overly fixated on the existence of his base. People will say, well 35-40 per cent of people still love him, so facts don't matter. Well, a larger percentage of people don't love him. That's shown in every poll.
So if that's how we're judging, there is a larger constituency for facts than non-facts, about the people who already think he's a liar. They may generally think he's a liar, but they may not know how they're being deceived on a particular subject, whether it's NAFTA or immigration or tariffs on China.
People are not experts on everything, and a lot of people simply want the information. It's not just being told Trump is a liar, it's ... how can I educate readers so that they're better informed on a particular matter.

As usual, the president’s bizarre outburst was prompted by something he saw on FOX News. inspired the President to immediately fire off whatever deformed and premature thoughts that manage to work its way out of his grease-strangled and apparently rotting cerebellum.


Trump just attacked the Moon and then claimed it was part of Mars in bewildering Twitter attack

The president of the United States left the nation equally bewildered and amused this morning when he appeared to launch a Twitter attack against the moon and falsely asserted that the moon was somehow “part of Mars.”
For all of the money we are spending, NASA should NOT be talking about going to the Moon – We did that 50 years ago. They should be focused on the much bigger things we are doing, including Mars (of which the Moon is a part), Defense and Science!
