How many time kid, I'M NOT AMERICAN, ONE MORE TIME, I AM NOT AN AMERICAN, ok good i hope you got it this time...
Do you still occupy Korea and Japan?
I hate the word "occupy".its a word only hateful misinformed ignorant idiots us to tar a country, I've answered this question several other times and
its just ridiculous how many idiots are out there who do not no there history or the situations today
In terms of international law a country is only "occupied" against its will and after military conflict. In that respect, America only "occupies"
Afghanistan; unless of course you wanted to count Germany, Italy, and Japan among those nations being defeated in World War Two.
America has basing rights in more than one hundred fifty countries that span the entire world. These basing rights are given to the United States for
several reasons; sometimes economic incentives, other times its mutually beneficial as in the case of Japan and South Korea who are protected by the
US presence & bases there against North Korea and the south Koreas have absolutely no problem with this, but it also serves to give America critical
strategic leverage in the Korean peninsula.
What people need to get through there heads i guess is.. just because a certain country has a military base in that country... IT DOES NOT MEAN THAT
COUNTRY IS OCCUPIED LOL, only a total idiot could think otherwise
Still in charge of Iraq and Afghanistan are you?
I think you will find the Iraqi government has been handed back full control of the country
Is half of your country based on lands you stole from the Mexicans?
I'm not American... and no its not, it was stolen from Native Indians, you have a shocking knowledge of history did you go to school?
Are you still attempting to force hegemony on the Pacific ocean by backing Taiwan to anger China?
See yet again you have proved to me and others once they read this just how bad you're with your history , its always bad to eat propaganda and fill
your self up with hate before making a judgement you should instead find the truth behind the matter and make your own mind up, you haven't done that,
you have been mislead by other US bashers
So you believe that the US is making Taiwan hate China right? ok lets do a little history lesson for you
Lets go back to the Chinese Civil War 1927–1950
though some argue that it is ongoing, (Taiwan) was a civil war fought between the Kuomintang (KMT)-led Nationalist Government of the Republic of
China, and the Communist Party of China (CPC) for the control of each others' territory which eventually led to two de facto states, the Republic of
China (ROC) in Taiwan and the People's Republic of China (PRC) in mainland China both claiming to be the legitimate government of China
Ok you can read it all here
So China basically still claims Taiwan, and Taiwan still claim mainland China, Taiwan (renamed) is where the opposition government of China retreated
back to after the blood civil war, and the US has a precence on the Island for the protection of the Taiwanese Government & People, it has sold its
arms to deffend itself against the communist government of China,
If you want anyone to blame, blame Russia for spending communism in the country which lead to a blood civil war only third on the scale after WWI &
The US is simply defending Taiwan's rights to remain Republic of China (ROC) in Taiwan,

Jesus Christ... please stop bringing up irrelevant pointless things such as Irans armed forces & available man power they're all poorly trained poorly
equipped, it means absolutely nothing and no, if you refer back to your original post you got the numbers wrong feel free to re check
Here's a reminder for you, Iraqi troops numbered approximately 545,000 to 600,000, during the gulf war
How many days did it take before they broke ranks & run away, ?
Exacly your point is totally irrelevant as i keep telling you. you clearly know absolutely nothing in the slightest about War & what counts
