What are you talking about???? Churchill's statement has absolutely squat to do with Stalin's demands for more supplies, but is related to Stalin's demand for the opening of a second front. Churchill's statement was an expression of his irritation at Eisenhower's expected July invasion date for Sicily. The Western Allies had expected the German defense in Tunisia to collapse in March, 1943, thus their armies would be idle from April through June. Ol' Winston was clamoring for moving up the Sicily invasion date to June, and was becoming quite irritated with Eisenhower's resistance. Fortunately, the Germans knocked the Americans on their butts a few days later at Kasserine, and made the whole idea of a June invasion of Sicily moot.
