Of course the US played a larger role, but given our population size compared to the US at the time, it has to be expected.
Mario Callirgos Dec 12, 2011
@ Ken we were a major force in Europe as well. Our invlovement was more than half the war You knew that of course : ). I dont think any part of the war was ours though it was a team effort. And the USSR had a huge manufacture base as well T34??
Devin Babyn Dec 12, 2011
Ken read my first comment it was on Europe I never got into the pacific cause it's pointless that was all US. And we did send over 1,000,000 soldiers. We also did as much manufacturing as possible and did a lot of the training for other countries
Devin Babyn Dec 12, 2011
Mario I know all media is objective no matter where it's from. That's why you don't just take what they say you go deeper into all that they talk about and skip all the bull shit they spit because of where there from
Ken Madison Dec 12, 2011
We were talking about US involvement in WWII, the pacific was half the war... The half we did 99% on our own. Learn the follow history, boy.
Ken Madison Dec 12, 2011
I doubt Canada had 1,000,000 boots wet. I might be wrong though. Looking at the concentration of force, application of tech (weapons: Garand, M1 car.), and production, we were by far the largest contributor. As well as $ spent.
Zachary Maurer Dec 12, 2011
Devin-I'm in middle school, and I know more stuff than u, like learning to respect our solders who put their friggin life on the line to protect us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Mario Callirgos Dec 12, 2011
Canada's involvement in ww2 was around 1 million With around 42k casualties . America contributed 16m with around 400k casualties. The USSR had around 16 m casualties. One death is a tragedy. These are some statistics.
Mario Callirgos Dec 12, 2011
Facts mean different things to different people depending here you live. Anyone can remember facts that's the easy part, getting many sources, assessing the facts you have or don't have and making your own opinion is hard
Mario Callirgos Dec 12, 2011
@ devin. In my short life I have learned that most of media is slanted and all those shows are good for the numbers only read books and online articles from places other then Canada or the us try Russian media or German or from the uk. The same
Tyson Broadbent Dec 12, 2011
@Ken Hey hey hey, I agree with most of what your saying but don't knock our country! We contributed as well.
Devin Babyn Dec 12, 2011
And I've learnt about history from a lot more then just school I actually really enjoy learning about how we got to where we are and have watched countless shows and documentaries on countless almost every era
Jason Brower Dec 12, 2011
Us, so don't feel picked on. You'll realize that high school educations, particularly in history, are topical at best, and completely erroneous in most cases.
Jason Brower Dec 12, 2011
@Devin, you're in highschool. That means three things: 1. You think you know a lot. 2. You actually know nothing at all. 3. In a few years, you will look back at the things you thought you knew and ask, "how was I so ignorant?" It happens to all of
Devin Babyn Dec 11, 2011
As we could with the resources we had. We might of not won a lot of battles but when we were involved we did are fair share. And there's a lot more to fighting a war then just being in the battles
Devin Babyn Dec 11, 2011
Yes I'm Canadian and that has nothing to do with it. There is no way to decide how much a country put into a war but no ones efforts were equal. They were all important and they all did there part. And saying Canada slacked is idiotic we did as much
Ken Madison Dec 11, 2011
Woops, later on devin admits he's from Canada. That just says it all. He's one of those people who tries to make it sound like everyone contributed equally because his country slacked. It's all coming together now.
Devin Babyn Dec 11, 2011
I already knew they supplied most of the ammo and weaponry for the allies. That means they were manufacturers not fighters in most of the war and when did I ever talk about Japan? I didn't cause I know that was US. try to learn to follow a convo
Ken Madison Dec 11, 2011
Of england's .303 ammunition, as well as producing Enfield rifles to pick up where they couldn't. Hundreds of thousands of them... So get your facts straight, and tell your history teacher he's a moron.
Ken Madison Dec 11, 2011
Turn the tide TO A STALEMATE.... Japan had china on their knees, controlled most of Asia, and ha no opposition until we stepped in. I guess the Russians were taking them too. By the way, savage, Remington, and winchester produced the majority
Ken Madison Dec 11, 2011
Shut up devin. My grand father and dad would smack you in the mouth like the punk you are if they ever heard you talk like that. The Americans supplied your precious Russians with ammunition, weapons, parts, and resources so they could finally
Carlos Eduardo Benitez Dec 11, 2011
Its pretty easy to cheat in highschool. Lol
El Berto Casillas Dec 11, 2011
Um yeah... Mickey Harris is a great airbrush artist. Not sure if this comment fits...
Whittany Hutchings Dec 11, 2011
Stop fighting. Just enjoy the story behind this magnificent artwork and it's purpose.
Devin Babyn Dec 11, 2011
Yeah I'll get on that 25 page essay when I figure out what I want to go to University for. And idk about your history teacher but mine is really into his job and goes into great detail over what happened not just what a book says.
No Pistons Dec 11, 2011
It's more of just a lot of things he's not taking into consideration such as manufacturing numbers, tech, our mission success rates, morality, superiority in land/air/sea vehicles, weaponry etc. and that's just a brief outline of us
Mario Callirgos Dec 11, 2011
@No pistons. Prolly the smartest rotary fan I have seen. Not many lol.
No Pistons Dec 11, 2011
@brandon Haha sorry arrogance and falsehoods with a hint of disrespect are pet peeves of mine lol
Ryu Tsuchiya Dec 11, 2011
Carbuzz should stop deleting comments!!! censorship always ends bad! What about freedom of opinion!??
No Pistons Dec 11, 2011
Oh my bad, I didn't know 3 years of highschool level education on a subject made you a professor on the matter. Come back once you wrote a 25 page term paper and are paying for an actually education, their is a lot high school skips over/leaves out
Mario Callirgos Dec 11, 2011
Oh the us was there the numbers may have been low but we showed up devin You do have a point heros don't have a nationality. And every country has them. As Americans we should thank all of them.
No Pistons Dec 11, 2011
And For anyone who bashes the troops, go put your own life on the line before you say something stupid again
No Pistons Dec 11, 2011
Devin please properly educate yourself And I don't mean google or wiki I mean go to your near by library and do some proper research on this before you comment again, thank you
Vince DeMasi Dec 11, 2011
Why do these articles always end in fights lol
Devin Babyn Dec 11, 2011
And the battle of Britain had nothing to do with the US they didn't fight in any of that. Canada helped out in that by training pilots for Britain
Devin Babyn Dec 11, 2011
The Russians were already pushing the nazi's back into Germany before the US got involved. Just cause you're country took part doesn't mean you get 100% of the credit there were many other countries that took part
Mario Callirgos Dec 11, 2011
Ya devin the us had nothing to do with the battle of Britain and creating a two front war to split hitlers war machine in half
Devin Babyn Dec 11, 2011
The Russians were about to defeat the Germans. All the us did was speed up the victory in western Europe
Zachary Maurer Dec 11, 2011
Crap u guys, people who fight in wars should be honerd, people need to take into consideration that let's just say, ww2, where would we be now if we had no brave solders to fight the Germans, or where would we be now if we just did nothing about the
Vince DeMasi Dec 11, 2011
@mario very true it is a necessary evil
Mario Callirgos Dec 11, 2011
Love it war is bad?? Way to fight human nature bud. I would call it a necessary evil. A part of what makes us human like greed or lust
Vince DeMasi Dec 11, 2011
@josh agreed! Other people have different views and I support the troops! Good job Chevy
Josh Negron Dec 11, 2011
Just because you don't agree with war l doesn't mean you have to trash people who risked their lives and body parts because they have a different worldview than you. They sacrificed a lot just to have you spit on them. Pretty cruel... Troll!
Garrett Waln Dec 11, 2011
Murder is taking ones life do pleasure. War is taking lives to save lives, for example the man you kill in war could be the one to kill hundreds later if u didn't kill him... Way to go Chevy.
Hendrik Reimer Dec 11, 2011
I think u have to differentiate a bit between war and murderer... But anyway, that's the way to go Chevy!!
Emil Kleijsen Dec 11, 2011
Most people get lifetime in jail for killing a couple of people, militaries get cars..,

Nod to GM for doing such a nice thing.
Devin Babyn Dec 13, 2011
Kens right we really do. Not all but the vast majority
Ken Madison Dec 12, 2011
Yeah the world does. Your eyes are closed if you don't think so.
Zack Stotler Dec 12, 2011
I've seen this car in person. Sexiest thing I've ever seen and OCCs National Guard tribute was there too
Shane Gardner Dec 12, 2011
The world doesn't "hate us". It's a rather narrow view of things.
Ken Madison Dec 11, 2011
The world hates us. And we shouldn't care. The world has always hated us.
Gregory Fatguy Dec 11, 2011
That guy on the wheelchair is so excited to see the car.lol
Andy Kelly Dec 11, 2011
Saw this at sf auto show. Plain beautiful
Vincent Butler Dec 11, 2011
Iraqi women was walking with groceries the bag ripped her items fell to the ground. American soldier helped her picked up everything. He touched her 1hour later that same soldier found that women on the ground dead. Turn out the husband beat her-
No Pistons Dec 11, 2011
My bad I misread your comment and didn't see your other one about the troops lol
No Pistons Dec 11, 2011
@michael Hmm what do you think about a man risking his life for you and enduring a hell you will never know while you sit comfortably at home
Andrew Hubbard Dec 11, 2011
I'm proud to be a American. I wish I could thank every man and women who fought for our Country!
Mario Callirgos Dec 11, 2011
I agree with Josh our troops are heros. I would also say that the coalition troops are as well. The Brits and Germans to name a few. As an American civilian that's for fightin by our soldiers
Justin Tucker Dec 11, 2011
Ya josh is right,there is a pretty good amount of people over there that supported us,not everyone wanted to kill us
Josh Negron Dec 11, 2011
Well... Most Iraqis cheered for us in the streets, the women wanted us to hold their babies, and their men fought and died alongside us to get their country back... Soooo, I'd say not too bad. Before you call BS--lemme just ask, were you there?
Mario Callirgos Dec 11, 2011
Getting them riled up early I see
Kevin Rehbock Dec 12, 2011
Hummer would have been sold to Sichuan Tengzhong, which the Chinese government rejected the terms of the deal, and then GM killed the brand. If anything, I would want this paint job seen on a MB/CJ/Wrangler. At least Jeep is still in business.
Gregory Fatguy Dec 11, 2011
They should of used hummer cause they make humvees
Zach Pate Dec 11, 2011
No. I hate new mustangs and new camaros. I'm not some pissy ford fan.
Patrick Schalk Dec 11, 2011
Because there are more Camaro articles on here than Stang articles. The blue oval boys get their panties in a wad. I think this car looks pretty sweet.
Josh ?hompson Dec 11, 2011
troops there very well may not have been a Chevrolet or Ford
Peter O'Sullivan Dec 11, 2011
I agree, this would look way better if it was entirely gun metal with fake rivets. I find the murals kinda ugly. Then again, the aesthetics of the car aren't really important considering what it's being auctioned for.
Callum Mckay Dec 11, 2011
The front/hood looks really good. They shouldve just made the rest of the car look like that gunmetal steel. That wouldve been REALLY nice. But good for them for even doing this
Derek Hedtke Dec 11, 2011
Yeah they could have made it a little nicer looking
Logan LeMonnier Dec 11, 2011
I don't care if that's for the military it is ugly
