    Great post as usual. You should write a book.

    Stop attacking the US and you won't have to hear it. You and House.

    "Could have" #1

    I guess David Millar and Iban Mayo are not as clever.

    "Could have" #2
    Double negative #1

    Do you even know if they did the test? Could they have just said they did? Is Dick Pound going to question them?

    "Not proof, but..." #1

    Maybe it's just that I don't understand the guilty until proven innocent philosophy.

    Without stating so explicitly, many of the DC bashing threads and posts carry a clear implication: "DC is more unethical than other doping teams." That may not be your position, but it's clearly the position of many posters on this forum. While it's fair to say DC was more successful than other teams that doped, that is absoulutely not equivalent to saying they were more unethical, which is the clear implication of those who fixate upon their doping. And as far as "getting over it," LA retired two years ago and current-day cheaters continue to proliferate in pro cycling. I think it's time for the LA bashers to get over it, and focus on what's going on right now. And I agree with your statements about DC the sponsor.

    I never attacked the US. Do you think I am French or Iraqi?

    So now you are saying that the results of the 1999 EPO tests were completely fabricated?

    Please answer. Did you read the Vrijman report?

    WTF?



    Division
    Combat troops of the U.S. Army are classified by the weapons and methods used in combat.

    Divisional facts:
    • There were 5 types of divisions: infantry, mountain, armored, airborne, and cavalry.
    • 91 divisions were mobilized during the war: 68 infantry divisions, 1 mountain division, 16 armored divisions, 5 airborne divisions, and 2 cavalry divisions.
    • All divisions were activated in the United States except for the following divisions: Philippine (activated in the Philippines), Hawaiian (activated in Hawaii and renamed the 24th division), 25th (activated in Hawaii from troops of the Hawaiian division), and Americal (activated in New Caledonia.)
    • There were three major theaters of operation during the war: Pacific (22 divisions were deployed to the Pacific), Mediterranean (15 divisions), and Europe (61 divisions). Seven divisions served in both the Mediterranean and European Theaters (1st, 3rd, 9th, 36th, 45th infantry divisions; 82nd airborne; and 2nd armored.)
    • Two divisions were disbanded or deactivated before the end of the war: the Philippine division was destroyed and disbanded on 10 April 1942; and the 2nd Cavalary division was activated and inactivated twice: 15 Apr 41 to 15 Jul 42 and 23 Feb 43 to 10 May 44.
    • Three divisions did not enter combat: 98th Infantry division, 13th Airborne division, and the 2nd Cavalary division.
    • By June 1946, 74 divisions were inactivated or disbanded leaving 17 divisions on active duty.

    Apparently it is way to complicated.

    Be careful: Introducing facts into this discussion will only confuse the American-bashing Euro-jingos that inhabit this board...

    • According to American records there were only 89 divisions in total in the US Army to 1944.

      Of the 89 divisions of the US army, approximately 25% of those divisions were
      never mobilised by the end of 1944.
      Which suggests that approximately 67 divisions were mobilised throughout World War 2.

      Incorrect.
      There were 21 divisions in the Pacific.
      Not 22.

      Incorrect.
      There were 7 divisions in the Mediterranean
      Not 15.

    Confuse?
    He's confused quoting incorrect "facts" for one thing.

    And I'm sure you'll take French-bashing American-jingo to task ?

    Many brave people fought in WW II, I lost an uncle at Normandy and my father was wounded twice while in the Pacific. Many people from many places died.
    How shall we honor them? By debating who died more?
    All gave some.Some gave all!
    That's all I have to say on the subject.

    Whatever your rationalization the end result is that there were significantly more than 15 Allied divisions in western europe.

    That's good. The intent of my post was to show the facetious "facts" posted by SB.
