US military intervention seems to be a historic American way of life.

I could not find a history oriented forum so feel free to move this post.

During the Russian revolution (civil war) many foreign troops intervened and fought the Bolsheviks. This included 5,000 US troop sent to Archangel and about 8,000 to Vladivostok.

I first researched this back in the 80's at the National Archives where military records were available on microfilm but let me suggest that you start with these two short articles and follow their links and/or do searches for more info.

While many reasons are cited to justify our intervention there is little mention of the fact that the Trans-Siberian railway was financed by New York banks who were holding gold bearing bonds. Time seems to have not changed our motivation much nor the media coverage.

I wish the History Channel would do a program on this topic.
