    I don't usually like your ignorant and arrogant posts but I must admit you hit the nail on the head with your comparison to what happened in 1940. Like Israel today, Britain was then at war with America's enemies which most Americans did not have the courage to fight directly. The limited military help provided by the Roosevelt Administration saved Britain from losing the war against Germany until Hitler made the unbelievable mistake of first invading the Soviet Union and then declaring war on America. By 1941 the USA had started its Lend Lease program for which it was nicknamed "the arsenal of democracy". Four years later it was not the Americans but the Nazis who were hanging, not from lampposts like victims of lynching but after a fair trial like any other serious criminal. You can be sure that there will be a Nuremberg tribunal for the rulers of Iran, Hizbulla, al-Qaida and Hamas as well and they will also hang like Haman.
