    Most of which would not have been necessary if there were no tyrants, terrorists, genocidal maniacs, sneak attacks and racial cleansing. Not to mention – if other countries were willing to have a military budget of THEIR OWN instead of wasitng their money on socialism and letting us do the dirty work.

    It’s an ugly world out there. Ignore it at your peril.

    I know. How stupid of countries like Japan and Germany agreeing to a reduced or near non-existent standing armies so they can pump more of their taxes into their economy and infrastructure. I mean, they’re only… the 3rd and 4th largest economies in the world, despite being a mere fraction of the size of the U.S. or China.

    Oh, and they can let us Americans do all the dirty work and pay the bill. They’re so stupid.

    And after all, it IS the US’s responsibility to deal with all the tyrants, terrorists, genocidal maniacs, sneak attacks and racial cleansing – being the country designated by GOD to be the world’s police and all –

    Sooo, if we don’t do it.

    Who does it?

    Dislike my original post all you want, snowflake children. It’s an ugly world and you aren’t all going to get participation trophies for being born.

    It’s an ugly world because of right wing warmongers like you.

    I bet you’re one of those ignorant shits that howls at the thought of reducing the military but demand that no single tax will ever be raised.

    Actually, that was the United Kingdom, but they lost their will.

    Churchill was the last man they had, Thatcher last woman. Shame really.

    I’m too lazy to do math; are the years overlapped?

    Counting the cold war is like counting the war on drugs. Neither is really a war. The Invasion of Grenada was from October 25th 1983 to Jan 3rd 1984, so it’s a little over 2 months, not two years as is implied. They left off the Korean war which was 2 years. Operation desert storm was a matter of months, not years. The same goes for the Invasion of Panama. Operation United Shield was 3 months, and the purpose was to evac UN troops from Somalia. So it doesn’t belong here. Let’s be honest and not use BS to inflate… Read more »

    yeah, a lot of these dates are off. The Mexican-American War lasted 12 years? lol ok. But I know, I should go feel guilty about all this, that’d be the hip thing to do.

    frankly i dont think that is the point. i think the point here lies in the fact that most of the u.s.’s history they have been waging wars and involved in conflicts.

    From the beginning of recorded history until today, there has only been something like 200 years total where some part of the world was not at war. The longest single stretch is 26 days.
    Avoiding conflict is preferred, but not always possible. I’d like to see how we stack up to countries such as the UK, France, Russia/Soviet Union, and China. I doubt we’d look poor by comparison.

    Tallied the numbers. By these dates, not double-counting for the cold war era conflicts (since the poster talkes about years, period, not years-per-war or something), we’ve been at war for 99 years. And a lot of these dates are very, very, off on the high end of the scale.

    Every country has been at war like his.

    Hell Canada was in WWII way longer that the US and we’ve been in Afghanistan for like 10 years now.

    It’s so funny how Americans think that they’re doing the right thing by killing people in other countries. Why don’t kill tyrants in Africa? There’s plenty. Oh wait… there’s no Oil for you there… okay then, go liberate the oily countries. The rest of the world will never suspect anything.
    And NOBODY will say something against your actions… they’d be liberated next…
    LOL JK =D And you almost fell for it =D (please don’t kill me)

    There is plenty of oil in Africa, and we have used our troops/drones there too. And every time we stick our noses down there, we get complaints of colonialism. And the goal isn’t necessarily killing people, but when you drop bombs on targets (buildings, AA batteries…) they tend to have people in or near them. If we just wanted to kill people, then we’d drop loads of cluster bombs and mine the heck out of the place. Not everything we do is right, but don’t paint all our actions as bad.

    Well, I can’t argue with your statement.
