Officially WW2 ended Sept the 2nd 1945 aboard the USS Missouri when the last Axis power Japan signed surrender papers. Unofficially it could said to have ended when the last Japanese soldier hiding out, one Hiroo Onoda, was coaxed out of a Philippine jungle almost 30 years after the war's end. There are rumors of even more very aged Japanese soldiers still hiding out in the Philippines.
The US signed the official peace treaty with Germany in 1990. The USSR never officially ended the war.

What is a second world country?I have heard of developed and third world country, what exactly is a second world country? Is there such a nomenclature?

Another lie that we've been fed to. I've learnt like everybody that the Allies declared war to Germany because it invaded Poland on Sept 1939, the truth is different. Georges VI's speech says it all! You will notice that the style is the copycat of the one we use to justify our invasions...

Hitler said roughly that when he first invaded Poland had France or England resisted he would have lost. Now, given his military weakness why would Hitler invade another country? Let's run a parallel, why did Saddam Hussein invade Kuweit? Why did Poroshenko have wings and guts to titillate Russia?...

Any thoughts about Obama's back-pedaling on any bills to bring back American jobs?
