Remember that some of these things that led to 100's of thousands of US and foreign citizens/soldiers dying did not actually happen or were ambiguous: Gulf of Tonkin, USS Maine from his examples. Be careful.

andrew153.. Funny enough the second and lesser so the firts world war, the usa had a decent reason to jion in, even though they didnt want to.. There is something werong with a society as a whole if they see war as a primary way to end conflicts. It becomes worse if they start wars.
the usa isnt the policeforce of the world, they portray themself that way though.. The UN should have that place.
The usa may be a world power, just like Russia was once and china seems to become now. The UN was created to prevent 'world powers` to `police` the smaller countries.
Now, i wil not say that the usa didnt do anything good for the world, cause in a lot of situations they did.. but in recent history, i cant name one war that they were actually the good side..
Oh and for sake of argument, 60+ years ago isnt recent

OK I have a plan. The CIA can drop a nuke in downtown Manhattan. When the fallout settles, you'll be at war. Make sure the prevailing wind is blowing from the East so the fallout dosn`t fall anywhere that matters

"I also don't, as a matter of sound policy, go around advertising exactly what our intentions are. But I think both the Iranian and the Israeli governments recognize that, when the United States says it is unacceptable for Iran to have a nuclear weapon, we mean what we say. " - Obama
