Damn I want to stop but.. Cant! lol sorry

So what was the USS Greer doing tracking/chasing a U-Boat which was engaged in an active war with England? What were they thinking? "Oh gee there's a U-boat, how cute, lets go chase it!" This is Iceland, not the United States. Was the U-Boat 'en route to New York to attack our port? If so, then maybe our action was justified.

The U-boat was probably trying to sink ships going to England bringing military and other supplies. I remember watching a documentary about this. We were already allied with England before Dec 11 (1941). We were already at war so the fact that Germany declared war on us first doesn't mean they attacked us first. Yes, they attacked private US ships going to England because England was under siege. They knowingly entered hostile waters. We then sent the Navy to protect those ships and thusly, entered the war.

Sorry I'll try to stop.
