let's be honest... The USA is about the only damned country that actually TRIES to limit civilian casualties so... NO. Our mission (in my opinion) is to keep all the rest of the loons from killing themselves (and us in the process). So three cheers for having to be the planets freeking peacekeeper... a thankless job and a very expensive one.

Yeah they got money and weapons. Those require a human to operate though.
If you ask me why don’t I think it’s a good idea to bomb the Japanese, I’d say, “For one thing, because they built my minivan.

All of this anti-American rhetoric just blows my mind.
So many countries and their would-be ambassadors want to shriek in fury and rage at us. What reasons can they give us for doing so? That we are arrogant? Not all of us, though we have a right to be. The majority of us are humbled by our daily existence. The thing that makes most of us humble, intelligent thinking beings... you bash, constantly. The Christian God. You hate our religion and then try to take away that which prevents us from becoming what you can't stand.
As they do not know what they do

Well I read the whole thread, which I think deserves a medal.
Maybe I missed it somewhere in the pages upon pages of writing, but hey, time to add my own bit.
I didn't notice anyone mention people, not the army, not the police and not the government. People, living in their homes watching an invading force come down the street. Quite frankly you might HAVE to nuke some countries to win, because a significant amount of the population will defend their country themselves.
Look at the IRA, they're still causing trouble for something that happened nearly a century ago now, and thats only a small part of the population, imagine the majority of the population of every country you invaded doing that.
It's not just the army that America would have to beat...
