Geographical facts should certainly not be allowed to stand in the way of 
political opinions.

Furthermore, for the purposes of war, Britain, Canada, New Zealand, Australia 
and the United States are not Europe.  They are the allies who rescue European 
states like France, Belgium, the Netherlands, when other European States like 
Germany, Italy and Serbia get them into trouble.
 
I've noticed that whenever I speak of European humiliation meaning France, 
someone is bound to challenge me meaning Britain.  I do not distinguish between 
Britain and the U.S. in regard to the fighting of the Second World War -- 
except that Patton was a much better General than Montgomery.  
 
I realize that there are a few Brits who think of themselves as Europeans, but 
we have a few Americans who think the same thing, our President for example.  
Nevertheless France thought of us as one word, Anglo-Americans and we really 
were during that war -- along with the Canadians, New Zealanders and 
Australians.

Thanks Mike.  
 
I've studied these most carefully; so with any luck the rain will let up and I 
can go back to taking photographs.
