Many people have commented about how divisive this administration has been and that has lead to many other issues throughout the country and the world to some degree. When I got an email yesterday – I did a Google check to see if the stats are accurate, but I didn’t see anything disputing the numbers. Whether the numbers are exactly true or not – it seems to me that it makes a definite statement about the positive power of the US when the country can be united against a common foe.
What do you think? What do you think contributed to this accomplishment?
During the 3-1/2 years of World War 2 that started with the
Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor in December 1941
and ended with the Surrender of Germany and Japan in 1945,
“We the People of the U.S.A. ” produced the following:
22 aircraft carriers,
420 destroyer escorts,
34 million tons of merchant ships,
100,000 fighter aircraft,
24,000 transport aircraft,
58,000 training aircraft,
257,000 artillery pieces,
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 Sicily and Italy,
won the battle for the Atlantic,
planned and executed D-Day,
marched across the Pacific and Europe,
developed the atomic bomb,
and ultimately conquered Japan and Germany.
It’s worth noting,
that during the almost exact amount of time,
the Obama Administration couldn’t even build a web site that worked.
