It's called forgetfulness. World War II was over 50 years ago. The current generation won't know a thing about it.
Kind of like Korea which has forgotten the Korean War.

good job.
I do not think the world is out to get the US in that case. If you real the article closely, you'll see that a French Hotel chain and the Indonesian government were also named in the suit. The thing that offends me a bit is the US did a decent job in getting aid to people fast. How are we repaid? By other countries bragging about how they are paying more for aid and a stupid arse lawsuit.

If I may, where is the world when natural disasters hit the US. If I remember correctly, no one helped Americans during the 89 San Fransico earthquake. Does the world ever help the US like the US helps the world?

I really did think of changing the title of the article. In the end, I decided to keep the same title as the article. There seems to be a sort of rivalry between Europe and the US. Say a group from Kentucky sued the EU. I am sure the headlines in Europe would read Americans sue Europe even though the group only represents Kentucky.[/b]

Really, have you done some research into that? You really doubt that the current generation, which generation to be exact, those that are born now this year? The i think you are right, the coprehention of a baby that is around 3 months is not that good. Or a 20 year old? Maybe a 15 yearold, I do think they know about world war 2

I'm speaking of the generation in their 20s and 30s mostly. And yes they'd be quite forgetful. Don't take it personally. It happens to everyone.
For some reason all around the world people have a tendency to listen to rock band musicians over the people who actually starved with the starving or fought in the fighting. It's really strange. The same can be said about Korea really. Same can be said of pretty much everyone.
And yes, I've done some research on this. There are a fair amount of books out there. The book I liked was "Civilization and its Enemies." It's main theme is about the forgetfulness of societies over generations etc. Quite intriguing. I think it's something almost too obvious not to believe.
If you think George W Bush is the height of evil, you haven't seen anything.

Yes, you are right, It would probably happen like you say, but the difference is that US is a country and Europe is formed by many countries. I do not know in the rest of Europe, but at least in Spain I never heard in the news about that lawsuit. I think is pathetic to acuse US of just saving their citizens...

I agree. Look at VietNam, most of the guys who fought there were in High School longer than they were in VietNam. I was born near the end of VJ day and the people who fought in WWII and Korea are pretty much the only ones who remember but their numbers are getting smaller every day.

Actually forgetfulness even happens among the ranks of those who were there. The prime example of this is East Germany. Some of these people seem to be kidding themselves into believing that life was better in East Germany than in the unified Germany. It's complete nonsense.
Just erodes over time.
Sad really.
