Is 'We' another example of American-English differing from English-English?

Seems you use it to mean America when in actual fact you mean 'Someone else with Americans tagging along.'
For example: "We beat the British" instead of "France had a proxy war and did the heavy lifting while a good proportion of Americans fought to remain part of the Empire."
Or
"We beat the Germans" instead of "We saw a bunch of **** going on in Europe but decided to stay out until the last moment so we could claim we did something while not actually risking much."

It was out of place. In a thread like this with countless people actually being that stupid your comment kinda just melted in with the rest of them. It's a shame but when there are so many people like that on the internet those kind of jokes need to be clearer else people will just assume the worst of you.

Attacking GB while we were in the middle of the Napoleonic war... we repelled all of the attacks and gave as good as we got, and you think you won? Also, failing to invade and annex Canada...

GB was arming and encouraging different tribes to attack US citizens. And after the war, US did gain some land. You think you won?

Neither side gained or lost land though the US suffered more losses than the British they were also repelled from annexing Canada so you lost

I see you're too over patriotic to understand that the war was considered a draw and the true losers were the Natives. Who britain made fight for them for false promises.

Your victory in the revolution was the same kind of victory france had in ww2.

You didn't achieve a **** , your allies carried you to victory

Yes, our allies helped us win. I wont deny that, but America still exists which is a win. If we had lost either of those wars then America wouldn't be America.

You miss understand me. I am not shouting "U.S.A. #1!!!" or anything. In both cases without our allies we would have lost. But because of our support we won. My point is saying we won.

I don't have disillusions of how awesome my country is by any amount. I am just trying to give credit where credit was due.

In the case of WWII a lot of Europeans don't want to admit it because of American Pride, but Europe was in trouble. France was half way under control of the germans and the rest were either now owned by Germany or Russia. Britian was just barely holding on. If the U.S. hadn't came over and helped then Europe would look a lot different than today.

Well atleast you're reasonable.

And to be fair , who says democracy is a good thing? xD

As any other european , I don't see the U.S as democracy , and as much as I hate you guys , unlike the real democracies over here , you get **** done.

Which brings us back to the original topic :
Point taken!
I still don't like all that " usa #1 " spouting all over the internet.

Point taken.

France on the other hand was still tired of war from ww1 , so they surrendered before taking serious damage.
