"IF IT WASN'T FOR GUNS
You'd be speaking Japanese right now"
I do realise the value of bumper stickers as political statements, but this one seems to transcend politics and challenge the very tennets of logic itself. The primary argument, that we, Australia, were able to defend ourselves from the Japanese during WWII using guns has the usual, run-of-the-mill, redneck fantasy about it and the traditional arguments apply:
- Guns were only used by the military.
- No hand to hand combat was used in the campaign (was it? I dunno).
- The Japanese would have been fucked anyway, trying to conquer a landmass that's mostly desert with bullets.
