I was forwarded this and think it is worth sharing. Please feel free to fact check. During the 3 1/2 years of WWII that started with the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor in Dec. of 1941 and with the surrender of Germany and Japan in 1945 the US produced 22 aircraft carriers, 8 battle ships, 48 cruisers, 34 destroyers, 420 destroyer escorts, 203 submarines, 349 million tons of merchant ships, 100,000 fighter aircraft, 98,000 bombers and transport aircraft, 58,000 training aircraft, 93,000 tanks, 257,000 artillert 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 forces, invaded Africa, Sicily and Italy, won the Atlantic, planned and executed D-Day, marched across the Pacific and Europe, developed the atomic bomb and ultimately conquered Japan and Germany. It is worth noting that during the almost exact amount of time the Obama administration couldn't build a functioning web site.
