|Americans had a slightly different mentality during WWII than many seem to have today!|
This observation was sent to me by one of the readers of The Political Commentator!
During the years of WWII that started with the bombing of Pearl Harbor to the surrender of both Germany and Japan in 1945, the US produced 22 aircraft carriers, 8 battleships, 48 cruisers, 349 destroyers, 429 destroyer escorts, 203 submarines, 34 million tons of merchant ships, 100,000 fighter aircraft, 98,000 bombers, 24,000 transport aircraft, 58,000 training aircraft, 93,000 tanks, 257,000 artillery pieces, 105,000 mortars, 3,000,000 machine guns and 2,500,000 military trucks.
We put 16.1 million men in uniform in the various armed services, invaded Africa, Sicily and Italy, won the battle of the Pacific and Atlantic, developed the atomic bomb and ultimately conquered Japan and Germany.
It's worth noting that during almost the same amount of time, the Obama administration couldn't build a "fu&*ing" website !
