Default Ponder THIS .....

WWII vs. Now!

During the 3 1/2 years of World War II that started with the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor in December 1941 and ended with the surrender of Germany and Japan in 1945,

the U.S. produced;

22 aircraft carriers,
8 battleships,
48 cruisers
349 destroyers,
420 destroyer escorts,
203 submarines
34 million tons of merchant ships
100,000 fighter aircraft
98,000 bombers
24,000 transport aircraft
58,000 training aircraft
93,000 tanks
257,000 artillery pieces
105,000 mortars
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 Africa
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 almost the exact amount of time, the Obama administration couldn't build a functioning web site.
