This is stupid. Whatever the French did was in their interest. They didn’t help us to be good guys.
Americans defeated the Brits because just like in Iraq and Vietnam, a big superpower can’t win on foreign soil if it can’t convince every single person to give up.
If you want to talk about who really won what war, look at our ethnocentricity regarding WWII, where for every German killed by the Allies, eight were killed by our "allies" the Soviets (who were, again, acting in their own interest).
The US definitely made the difference for Western Europe, not to mention Japan, but Nazi Germany would have had much more success without Stalin throwing Russkie men at his eastern border.
>What would America look like now if we had lost?
A much better question is what would America look like if the North had lost or not fought the Civil War?
