What you didn't say was there will be massive unemployment because computers will take over many tasks.In the UK some surgeons operate with computers now.As a small example.Post war I became an airline pilot.. Typical crew: two pilots,flight engineers,radio officer and navigator. Now,just two pilots and they are little better than computers minders.
On the ground where there many people working out aircraft movements,now computers do it.
My wife hates it when I mess with her red wine.I added some fruit and orange juice and she's sangria than ever.
I was told to back a horse named Landfill.
This was a rubbish tip.
I don't know whether you can pick up. Not Going Out.It is the funniest programme ever
In the UK seniors get a rise every year to keep up with inflation.
As an ex pilot Inalways understood Balls Out to mean,go as fast as you can.
Yeah. You are a real hero. Hitler used Chamberlain... (
This is a load of crap.The Royal Navy was bigger than the US navy especially after the Japs sunk a good part of it.You sat back and watched us fight for freedom and just sold us goods. I am a very old man who fought to save your skins.I watched as friend after friend died in horrible circumstances. I saw a close friend who had his face burned off.You woud not have come into he war if Germany had not declared war on you.I am sorry to have to write such things but I cannot sit back and hear such perverted truths. Incidentally, both radar and the atom bomb were British inventions and the atom bomb saved countless US lives.

What a load of hogwash.Whilst your country was selling goods we fought off the Germans.We, then were not alone.In those days we had an empire bigger than the US. If we had not defeated Germany in the Battle of Britain, as big as you are you would not have been able to fight off Japan,Germany,Rumania and Italy.You only came in because Germany declared war on you.I do not want to run down the US a country I admire enormously and where I have spent a lot of time but some of you seem full of hate for Britain.

No we are not our army is too small and I believe a 1000 marines are to bu cut and two ships to be laid up. We don't have the money and we are too far in debt.
Your summing up is largely correct I know because I am 96 years old and during the war I was one of those RAF pilots that fought to defend Britain and it might be said,America.The Battle of Briitain was probably a draw but the Luftwaffe could not defeat us and Hitler was probably
more interested in Russia, The ME 109 was as good as the Spitfire and the FW190 for a time was better.
We didn't just stand back and watch, we supplied t... (
You did not supply goods for nothing. Countries such as Bermuda had to be handed over and some payment was demanded.
If the RAF had not beaten back the Luftwafe you would be next on the list.You were not as prepared as the Germans.

A thoughtful contribution but is it not possible missile defence will advance ? I would guess the US is already advanced as probably are the Israelis
Yes,I remember it well.I was fighting at the time.That was when you stood back and watched us try and fight the evil from Hitler until the Japs sunk a large amount of your fleet.
Bit pessimistic though with some truth. Incidentally,I am a veteran and fought in the war and I have no complaints about my treatment.I am a member of the British Legion and the RAFA and Both organisations a are there to help if I needed it as is the RAF Benevolent fund. The government has helped. I know of no shops leased to thevFrench
Soon the state of the art Royal Navy aircraft carriers will be operational.They cost billions and years to build. I wonder if it is worth it? One well aimed missile could see them off. I expect they have misfile defence but would it always work?
