Storyboard Text

  • Yes, but the problem is, many of the Germans are our relatives. We came from those people.
  • I believe that the war in Europe should be just that. A war in Europe.
  • They may be our relatives, but come on! The Germans sank the Lusitania!! They killed Americans!
  • You must also remember that we also have British relatives, too. We are related to many of the fighting countries.
  • That's what you say, but we heard that you sent a letter to Mexico asking for an alliance to defeat us!
  • The National Defense Act should keep us safe from any attack from Mexico, if it does come. It doubled the amount of soldiers we had in the regular army for crying out loud
  • We sent the Allies tons of money.... I heard that it was something along the lines of $500 Million.
  • We promise to never ever shoot at American civilian ships again! It will not happen.
  • Oh, sorry. I didn't mean to intrude.

  • Hey, buddy, you can't be in here, go back to the African American barracks. They are are back near the combat ring.
