    Nope, not just as funny, but still funny - we've already seen that picture, remember? Pacific Theater, WW2.
    Amphibious assaults aren't the only way to attack the US....

    I don't remember ever seeing a picture of American troops raising the flag over the Kremlin in WW2.

    Would the same picture be just as funny with soldiers raising the American flag in front of say...the Kremlin?
    does the phrase "Able Archer" mean anything to you?
    they almost nuked us because they thought that some clouds picked up on radar during one of our war games were nukes the order was given to nuke us but they guy who did the button pushing had a gut feeling and did other wise, was there a chance? there was a button away from all out nuclear war due to a missunderstanding, imagine what the world would be like had it been someone els at the controls, scary thought
