Apparently in recent years, some have suggested that Greenland would have been in a better financial situation today had it been acquired by the US during WWII. Can't say I disagree with them. I can't read the source links as I can't seem to find a way to translate them, but thought it was an interesting thought anyway.

Even so, the main observation totally stands: were it not for these provisions of powder from France, the colonies could not have waged let alone win their war of independence. A fact that is constantly and purposefully obfuscated by the humanist historical narrative, at the expense of the truth upon which reality is founded. It succeeds at misdirecting the attention of people, by focusing it on the military actions of that war rather than on the logistics that enabled these actions to take place, causing them to fail miserably at registering for the childishly obvious reality that without the French Monarchy America would have been dead in the egg.

Most people know little or nothing about the gunpowder provisioning reality, and that is the most telling aspect that something is purposefully amiss amidst the whole humanist narrative concerning the United States 2.0.

Well, guess who had plenty of "good oak and hemp". HINT: It's the country that didn't have much gunpowder. In other words, it was to France's benefit to be friendly with the United States.The French did run into a bit of a panic at the outset of the Conflict, however, as they had to scramble for good oak and hemp to keep their Navy afloat.
