I used to admire my US cousins, but recently I#m not so sure
It's obviously to me that there's at least 2 Brits on here who just can't stand the USA. Despite many evils perpetuated by the UK over the last century or so I still admire my British cousins.
I think FUBAR is a good description of VIRTUALLY ALL US operations for at least a year after Pearl!!...
...It's not often I run across the opportunity to bring the DP back up and out my nose, and all over the keyboard.
FUBAR indeed: 6 IJN flattops on the bottom of the sea versus 4 USN bird farms; the guts torn out of the IJN air service by the end of the Guadalcanal Campaign; the IJA served notice that stealth, trickery and spirit have little chance in the face of sustained machine gun, artillery and air support; the establishment, and benefits, of a logistical train--and the bases to mount operations from--the likes of which the Japanese Empire couldn't even begin to match.
Yep, that's FUBAR alright.
