Well I'm not sure if it's any good but this cover rocks.  It's a weird mix of transformers and GI JOE during WWII.

Ha, is that for real or some kind of joke?

G.I. Joe and Transformers cross over all the time. It was probably only a matter of time before they tried different eras in time.

They will probably pull the usual american tv/film trick of politely forgetting that the war did not begin in 1941
If you're ever in an argument and Entropy winds up looking staid and temperate in comparison, it might be time to cut your losses and start a new thread about something else :)

Besides, it's not that we think the war started in 1941, it's that we think the part of the war that MATTERS started in 1941.  ;D

The Brits aren't much better, or were you actually referring to 1931 when Japan invaded Manchuria?

Heh. That was a different war that just happened to be later regarded as part of the same war. Who cares what happens to the chinese mainland?

Likewise, who cares what happens to England.  The war started in 1941.

Your failing to make sense mustard... the manchurian incident was a war between japan and china. Largly seperate from anything else.

WW2 was a war against germany. Thus, anyone fighting against germany was in WW2.

To put it another way... you said ages ago that at the same time as the american revolution, there was rebellions in other british colonies. Would you say those colonies were fighting in the american revolution?

Now who's ignoring things? The "Axis" and the "Allies" were opponents in WWII. THe Axis being defined as Germany, Italy and JAPAN. I know you lazy brits didn't go up against the Japanese much in the war, but you *should* know that if the Japanese didn't attack Pearl Harbor than there's a good chance you'd be speaking German right now.

Yes. We were actually "fighting" them (we would have done a better job if our commanders were not muppets who surrendered at the drop of a hat) at the same time. But the fact remains, the manchurian incident was not WW2.
