The American legacy right there. If the setting was a school room, the US would be the bully that has beaten up a good portion of the class for their lunch money. Yeah, that's a feel-good legacy to be proud of

BTW we could add a dozen more if we count covert pops, and (small tactical interventions) for example USA drones overfly Mexico quite often based on the war on drugs, nevertheless, its illegal and non UN sanctioned.

Sometimes I wonder if the USA will suffer the same fate as the Romans, were they streched their power too much, and made their turf very weak... then one day the empire fell from within...

Something to ponder.

Yes, I have heard that one before, but I dont think its accurate at least on pre XX century... Once one person told me that he was going to ask the army to give them the $$$ for his education, and I said, if you want to fight a war and kill people, by all means go ahead, he told me quite angry, we havent been at war since the Gulf war (this was on 1995), I told him the USA is always doing military stuff, check your facts, and he insulted me with an expletive.... dont know if he did it, but seeing the list I put, I guess he is been quite busy! (if not dead, injured or traumatized by "action")

SAD

Lots of Conflicts, and bad policies.

Then again, we could stay out of many conflicts. Like Rwanda.



If America does something, They Hate us.
If America doesn't do something, They Hate us.

It doesn't matter if America is involved or not. It doesn't matter if America were involved in the past, present, or future.

Personally, I would like this Government to pull out our troops from everywhere. Get rid of the UN. Adopt Mexico's Immigration laws. Let the World fend for themselves. But when the World comes calling, we dont answer. Regardless of the consequences.

That we know of.....

Many secretive operations we will never know about.

I can't believe that some people are bickering over the 'term' of war.

Some people are saying that if it's 'drone' attacks and not actual troops on the ground, then it's not war.

Say what???


Regardless, if people are being killed by the US, does it really matter which form of attack is being used?
To attack another country is war, whether it's via drones or troops on the ground.

Yep, guess you can add Syria to the list :shk:

I think you'd be really sick to see the Gov't spreadsheets which have the 200 some world nations down the side as rows with years 1945-2013 across the top as columns. One for Military and one for General/Civilian aid. There are only a few nations of them all, at the moment, who aren't getting one type or the other, if not both and that's been the case in a way only scrolling spreadsheets can really emphasize, since the 80s and definitely the early 90's as the start. That's when 200 rows of spotty figures and occasional entries become near solid grids of numbers from top to bottom.
(17 Billion last year in direct Military aid alone, combined across all nations, if anyone was curious)

So, indeed.. Democracy as a gift to give everyone, like it or not, is a very expensive thing. I'd just as soon we stop giving entirely. No one asks little old me tho. I'd definitely say we need to stop delivering it by force. Literally.

Nearly all of those countries are considered "third world" and contain resources we covet like oil. Stopping the spread of Communism was a farse, it was all about a resource grab, namely oil.

What the heck does bombarded mean? A peace a peacekeeping mission in Somalia is a bombard? Suppling one side in the Congo is a bombard? Defending South Korea from and invasion is a bombard? Airlifting and suppling Chinese troops against communist rebels is a bombard? Escorting supply convoys to Taiwan is a bombard? Driving out the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait counts a bombard against both of them? The US Iran soccer game in 1998 counts as a bombard? Supplying the gov of Peru fighting communist rebels is a bombard of Peru? Escorting international shipping through the Itan/Iraq war zone counts a bombard on Iran? So this list should really be countries where the US may have been involved in a military action, a peace keeping operation, supplied one side, escorted some ships or played a soccer game. Nothing like a little hyperbole. I wonder how many of those the peace loving Russians were involved in?

I agree actually.

It wont stop those from placing the "war monger" tag on the US though.

ATS doesn't hold any other country to the lofty standards they hold the United States to.That's been proven thread after thread.

Romans, could chance.

Fate of a Bully -- always the same at one point.

This is my fear.. especially as Uk has 'backed off' on Syria.. We have many countries HATING us.

Our Govt is basically the Voltron on Nazism/Facism/Communism control.. If so many countries HATED Hitlers army..

How do they feel about USA? how does John Q. Public feel about his own nation?

Just about every Human HATES bullies and HATES NAZI's... doesn't fair well for USA..

And it shouldn't.. if one was to be honest...

We didn't start that one in order to justify waging aggressive war to steal their resources. Oh yah, what resources.

The US was asked time and again while people were being murdered not after the fact. Our response was we are monitoring the situation. Like Egypt. Thousands are being killed there by the military. There is no doubt. Wheres the outcry for a military "strike" in Egypt?

Syria is next. Syria has always been next. Syria is the stepping stone to Iran. When are ATS warmongers going to start up the Bad presidents and WMD parade about Iran again? As soon as Syria falls into the same anarchistic morass as the rest of the "democratized" nations in the Middle East.

Who are these ATS Warmongers?

Are they the ones who want the United States to Pay for all the blood they believe is on their hands?

Even the innocent, and those that want peace?

Projectiles dont see innocent victims. China's projectiles , Russian projectiles dont know who the "rebels" are? Iranians in Syria are not asking for "Rebels" to show identification? Syrians are not asking who the person running from door to door is, as they try to get away from the killing?

Tell me I am wrong intrptr. Tell me But, But, But, America.........

Your brand of finger pointing is a product narrow mindedness.

Agreed. The OP's list is is in accurate.

While I don't agree with the US bombing Syria, I don't think the OP need to make claims that we bombed certain countries when we did not, nor include things like the Persian Gulf War which was a coalition of countries (not just the US) in response to the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait. Coalition was made up of the following countries:

US, UK, France, Canada, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Qatar, UAE, Kuwait, and Syria (looky there).

But of course the OP will only list the US. The OP also seems to leave out U.N. Resolution 678 :


On 29 November 1990, the Security Council passed Resolution 678 which gave Iraq until 15 January 1991 to withdraw from Kuwait and empowered states to use "all necessary means" to force Iraq out of Kuwait after the deadline.


While I agree the US has done a lot of "dirt" I would urge others to vette the OP's list. It's not exactly a fair list.

Yes, the OP is quite blinkered. This is a rehashed theme time and again on ATS by people who want to form a world view that the US is some form of evil aggressor. No attempt to indicate that many of the conflicts were as part of an international force, some under UN mandate and the majority quite worthy.

The list of countries is both misleading and inaccurate, with Australia missing following the incident of a US warplane dropping a bomb near the Great Barrier Reef.

The ones that show up and call peace makers "whiners and complainers". They are careful not to call for war, just crap on those who protest against it.
