OK, the US helped eventually, but they only joined after their own interest i.c. Pearl Harbor was attacked in December 1941 and because Germany declared war on the US. PH was more than 2 years after the start of the war (invasion of Poland in September 1939). Speculation, but if Japan had not attacked PH, the US might never have joined the war because of Roosevelts 'non belligerency' stance (and I would be typing this in German...). So, openly grateful? Yes, but maybe for the Japanese attacking Pearl Harbor and drawing the US into the war. SAAB content? None, but you asked to be corrected... -- MH '72 97 '77 96 '78 95 '79 96 '87 90 '91 900i
