World War II: Mexican Air Force Helped Liberate the Philippines
Original post made by dublinmike on May 12, 2013
Some of you are aware of how Argentina, Chile, Paraguay and other SA countries helped escaping Nazis make it to South America after the fall of Nazi Germany. But, nearly all of Americans are not aware of how many other South Americans helped the Allied cause.
If you are so inclined to read about others that helped keep us free of Nazi tyranny then please read:
BTW, it appears that American was the only country of significance that actually came out of WWII financially ahead. Think about it.

You make it sound like this is breaking news. Our involvement and history in WWII is about the USA, not other nations. That is 'their' involvement, their history. Of course our history will be mostly be written about us, with side notes or side stories of 'help' from other Allied countries. The more help and involvement, the more side notes or bigger side stories. Any involvement from an Allied country was and is thanked a great deal. You try to portray in your post that their air force was a significant force and yet the article states 300 enlisted men and officers combined. Compared to how many Americans? Compared to to how much resources we used and provided? Compared to how many lives Americans lost? Compared to how much we spent and helped the rebuilding effort in foreign countries after the war was over?
And then of course, you end it with an America "bashing" comment of how we came out financially ahead. Yet you don't state how financially draining it was on our country and its people during the war.
I really wonder what the ulterior motive is for this post? Could it be a certain political wrangling happening in our country now?

Yes, and what about the blood, sweat and tears donated by United Fruit and other American companies in Mexico and throughout Latin America who were able to feed patriotic Americans? Without United Fruit, where would these Latin American countries be today?
