A lot of hate on both sides of the Atlantic in this comment thread! USA did this, UK did that. I feel like everyone has whipped their digital dicks out just for the enjoyment of feeling better about themselves.
I'm American, and like most Americans I love my country. I might not agree with some choices that were made but at the end of the day I like being from America. Of course that doesn't mean America is all of a sudden better then the other countries in the world. Every country, in some way or another, has chipped in to the worlds achievements. It doesn't matter where a particular technology was developed, all that matters is it WAS developed and shared with all. Its the 21st century people, about time we all started realizing we're the same fucking species and carry on.
As an addition to this comment, the Allies won WWII as a TEAM with every country involved working together to get it done. Not one country on the Ally side could have beat the Axis by themselves. to say America won the war or the UK won the war and so on is not only proving ignorance to how WWII happened but shames the county you're from by acting like a moron.
