I am sorry I just cannot resist doing a 'kevin' on your message. I hope this gives you some idea of how irritated I was
You talk of roots, this data is not about roots its about recent history, you are about 1 foot from the ground of the bush that is the US dennards. Sorry roots are roots ie where the bush STARTED. Very interesting how this word roots provokes such a frenetic reaction. Odd isnt it how one gets hot under the collar when a third party throws scorn on ones roots. Anyway now to the 'Kevin'
1. This 1776 business, what proof do you have that the three mentioned were in or were really dennards. I dont mean rehashed info which has been copied a million times I mean original. This Jacob, funny name for a dennard this more like Yacob you sure he wasnt one of the german daynards that went to Canada. Who were these threes parents, prove they were dennards not denwoods, etc etc. Coming onto the freedom bit- is this a joke. This was a bunch of TRAITORS to their country who wanted nothing more than riches and power. They convinced the ordinary people that all their problems were their kings fault and that if they ruled it would all get better. fat chance of that, the only early benefits were to the rich and landowners. The war was fought for money and power not freedom.
2. The War of 1812. Did dennards really fight in this wheres your provenance. The British had been fighting desperatley for years against the worlds greatest despot. The US sat back and made money. The only reason for this war was commerce ie MONEY and the fact that you knew we were worn down. The main end result was that when Waterloo came around Wellington had to fight well outnumbered and without maqny of his best troops.
3. Do you really want to assocaite Freedom with Indian Wars!!. Were not the seminoles fighting to keep their homes and lands and way of life as freedom fighters werenot you stealing land, killing and starving innocents. What were the casualty figures- how many settlers died versus the effect on the Seminole. The whole history of settlement in the US is one of theft, murder,slavery- how many wounded knees were there.
4. The Civil war- oh dear Traitors to your country again. Whose freedom were you fighting for certainly not the slaves( ok I know this was not the reason for ther war).It was as usual about power, control and money- no more no less with the people the unfortunate cannon fodder.
5. The Great War, fought for our freedom eh, dont make me laugh. You sat for three years watching us bleed to death by the hundred of thousand, quite happy making money and growing strong. THE ONLY reason you joined was the collapse of Russia and the freeing of many german divisions as a result. This appeared to give the germans the chance of winning, so you joined- otherwise you would hjust have sat and watched us being weakened as you grew stronger.
6. Second world war. Check the facts GERMANY declared on YOU , you did not join to save us at all. You were quite happy to see us struggle alone- 50,000died in the first 3 weeks of the blitz alone. But thats ok you were making money as usual. Wasnt lend lease great you make us pay through the nose for your scrap ships and tanks.
7. Korea Pass except that we and you thought we could demolish them not expecting the PLA to get involved. A true fight for freedom this one.
8. Vietnam A nation betrayed by politicians, big business, and an internal moral decay. What a testament to the strength of the USA that it was reborn as a strong nation out of this. I do not know what the war was fought for but freedom wasnt high on anyones list.
9. Which dennards precisely where in Desert Storm and Afghnistan. One fought for OIL pure and simple and the other for revenge. Look at Desert storm casualties pro rata to forces involved. Did you know we lost more men to your planes than to the Iraq forces. Intersting in AFghanistan that as soon as it looks as if there is REAL fighting possible you request 2000 of our commandos to do ther dirty work, on the basis that they have mountain warfare training of course. I hope Nat, a cousin, who is a commando survives. Bet you our forces lead!!
Talk about justice and freedom all you like, THE USA LIKE THE REST OF US only fights for self interest, where have we been for 50 years while the jews kill, steal land, enslave the palestinians. We have been with you serving our own needs and ignoring freedom and truth
Your relatives honourable service in your armmed forces should not blind you to reality nor form the basis of any roots, these examples you give are mere branches on the tree not roots. Finally where is the evidence, we need it overhere we cant just accept what you say as truth
I just hope that some tiny part of you is smiling at this, it took me a few days to calm down from kevins denial of MY HERITAGE
