US might have been involved with some wars, but they have not occupied any region so far. And well, we can not say as if Russia has not been involved in any wars, attacking Georgia for example.

In your dreams and your statement goes to show that you skipped too many history lesson whilst at school.


Russia completely writes their history books from their own perspective, not objectively. e.g. to this day, Russian history books do not even admit Baltic countries were occupied by them after WWII. Some years ago the media here (EST) took a look at three of the most popular history books and their description of the occupation. All of them portray the situation as if these three independent countries voluntary joined the soviet union and the biggest lie of all, some even say that local people wanted it...

Recently even some of the newer history books were banned of being published due them not picturing russia as the good guy

It is very comparable situation to the crimea annexation. Just occupying another territory and adding it to their territory is something that should not happen in todays world. Telling that the country is doing something in their own interests is like saying if you have smaller garden than your neighbour you could just go and take part of theirs by either giving the neighbour the ultimatum of giving "voluntarily" part of their garden to you or just suffer the consequences. Working according to your interests. Whether a country or an individual such thing should not be acceptable in the world of today.

You earn a star for the correct answer.

"History is written by the victors"

That has always been the case, The West now does it on the spot.

Even in Western edited wikipedia we can read following about 50-th state of USA




Overthrow of 1893—the Republic of Hawaii (1894–1898)
In January 1893, Queen Liliʻuokalani was overthrown and replaced by a Provisional Government composed of members of the Committee of Safety. American lawyer Sanford B. Dole became President of the Republic in 1894. Controversy filled the following years as the queen tried to regain her throne. The administration of President Grover Cleveland commissioned the Blount Report, which concluded that the removal of Liliʻuokalani was illegal. The U.S. government first demanded that Queen Liliʻuokalani be reinstated, but the Provisional Government refused. Congress followed with another investigation, and submitted the Morgan Report on February 26, 1894, which found all parties (including Minister Stevens) with the exception of the queen "not guilty" from any responsibility for the overthrow.[70] The accuracy and impartiality of both the Blount and Morgan reports has been questioned by partisans on both sides of the debate over the events of 1893.[69][71][72][73]

In 1993, a joint Apology Resolution regarding the overthrow was passed by Congress and signed by President Clinton, apologizing for the overthrow of the Hawaiian Kingdom.[73]


The ʻIolani Palace in Honolulu, formerly the residence of the Hawaiian monarch, was the capitol of the Republic of Hawaii.
The Provisional Government of Hawaii ended on July 4, 1894, replaced by the Republic of Hawaii. The first Japanese immigrants arrived in Hawaiʻi in 1885 as contract laborers for the sugar cane and pineapple plantations.

Annexation—the Territory of Hawaii (1898–1959)
After William McKinley won the presidential election in 1896, Hawaii's annexation to the U.S. was again discussed. The previous president, Grover Cleveland, was a friend of Queen Liliʻuokalani. McKinley was open to persuasion by U.S. expansionists and by annexationists from Hawaiʻi. He met with three annexationists from Hawaii: Lorrin Thurston, Francis March Hatch and William Ansel Kinney. After negotiations, in June 1897, Secretary of State John Sherman agreed to a treaty of annexation with these representatives of the Republic of Hawaii.[74]

The treaty was never ratified by the U.S. Senate. Instead, despite the opposition of a majority of Native Hawaiians,[75] the Newlands Resolution was used to annex the Republic to the United States and it became the Territory of Hawaii. The Newlands Resolution was passed by the House June 15, 1898, by a vote of 209 to 91, and by the Senate on July 6, 1898, by a vote of 42 to 21.

Why can't they just take of the people? Why does it always half to be about the money? Or the politics?

Do you really want to use history in terms of comparing who has invaded and occupied territories? I guarantee you Russia takes the cake.
