If you think world war 3 is going to be as quick and peaceful as a power outage and an atom bomb... sure are you going to be in for a surprise.

The former conflicts in the middle-east by the invading US troops were not wars. They were genocides.
A war takes 2 sides to fight.
A genocide only takes one.

Inside Your Mind, you have this really bad habit of assigning your own meaning to words that have existed for a lot longer than you have. Please stop
correcting people on their choice of words until you have a solid understanding of the English language.
While I agree with you that the US imperialistic pursuits are far from honorable, I don't think the US can yet be accused of genocide, deliberate or
otherwise. Israel on the other hand... Oh the irony.
