I jumped in for no other reason than you know that I cannot resist a history debate. Its my passion and what I trained as.
You and I got on well until recently, then you starting bashing me for being anti-american.
Maybe I got/get the deflected brunt for James Kirk or our Aussie simpleton, I dont know.
If I have been rude I apologize. Being a full om history buff I value your input and your camdor. As much as I love my country I am not blind to its many faults. If the discusion had been on the Revolutionary war in general you would be right to bring it up. What France has to do with George Washington the leader is a mystery to me. Franklin was the person involved with getting French support, not Washington.
Actually you may have caught my pique at Jeremy Clarkson, again, sorry
