I see. Well, in the last 60 years the USA has been without doubt the most belligerent nation on earth. If it wasn't fighting in a particular
conflict, it was arming 1 or both sides & often fomented the trouble to further foreign policy.
Source, please. I lived through most of that time, clearly you didn't. Based on that, I'm gonna need a source for your "clear facts" in order to
even begin to accept them.
1945-46, 1950-53; Korea 1950-53; Guatemala 1954, 1960, 1967-69; Indonesia 1958; Cuba 1959-61; Congo 1964; Peru 1965; Laos 1964-73; Vietnam 1961-73;
Cambodia 1969-70; Lebanon 1983-84; Grenada 1983; Libya 1986, El Salvador 1980s; Nicaragua 1980s; Panama 1989; Iraq 1991 to present day; Somalia 1993;
Bosnia (Republic of Srpska) 1995; Sudan 1998; Yugoslavia 1999; and Afghanistan 1998, 2001-02.
However, added to this figure of 22 would be at least 18 other countries which were on the receiving end of bombing during the two World Wars, such as
Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Hungary, Italy, Tunisia, Greece, Austria, Romania, Japan, Thailand, Nauru, Solomon Islands, Papua New
Guinea, the Marshall Islands, Singapore, and the Phillipines.
What about Iran Contra, arming the Afghanistanis against the Russians in the 80's?
Ring any bells?
Funny how America never attacks any country with nukes.
