Believe it or not we have books, TVs, the internets, and other media options here in the great white north too!

If I'm discussing something with somebody, take cars for example, and they tell me an obviously wrong fact, I don't say "you're naive, you have no weight in this discussion!!!" My mother taught me to say something like "I think it's actually works like ...". It's just a way of talking to people that promotes constructive conversations rather than argumentative bantering.

Ok. ("Keep up" was mine... sorry about that, as I wrote)

Why the US entered the WWII? What was the trigger event? What is the real story behind it? and most of it. What did US gain from WWII?
