    The United States, an example of public and social order for the countries of the "golden billion," has a unique history. In the 237 years of its existence, it has been either at war, or preparing for a new attack, looking for victims. During the period from 1798 to 2012 Washington used military force abroad 240 times, more frequently than annually

    The first Barbary War did not end well for the United States. They had to buy out 300 U.S. soldiers from captivity, while the Americans captured only 100 Arab soldiers, and the desired result - getting rid of tribute - could not be achieved. Only the second Barbary War in 1815 brought success. As a result, the American merchant vessels, unlike the French and English ones, were given priority in the freedom of movement in the Mediterranean.

    Throughout the nineteenth century, the United States fought with the British, Mexican, Japanese, Nicaragua, Hawaii, and the Philippines, not to mention dozens of local military operations. As a result, the territories of modern states of California, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, and Utah were conquered. Protectorate was established over Hawaii, the U.S. military government was introduced in Cuba, and a colonial regime established in the Philippines.

    In the twentieth century, the aggressive U.S. operations have become even more widespread. Virtually the entire Central America and much of Latin America were under the U.S. control. The United States and Russia were at war, albeit without much result, landing their troops in Archangelsk and Vladivostok. Now not just the Mediterranean or Central America, like it was in the nineteenth century, but the entire world is covered by the U.S. military machine.

    U.S. soldiers fought in China (1925), Korea (1950), again in China (1958), and Lebanon (1958). The biggest defeat in the history of the United States was suffered in Vietnam, where 60,000 people were killed and over 300,000 wounded. After the war, about 100,000 of its veterans committed suicide. In parallel, Americans conducted armed operations in Latin America - Panama, Brazil (overthrow of the legally elected President Joao Goulart in 1964) , Cuba, Bolivia, the Dominican Republic, and Chile. Africa was not forgotten either, and in 1960, the U.S. organized a coup during which dictator Mobutu came to power, and the legally elected Prime Minister Patrice Lumumba was killed.

    Recent achievements of the U.S. foreign policy are fresh in memory - from the bombing of sovereign Yugoslavia to the completely illegal invasion of Iraq, the war in Afghanistan and the defeat of Libya. Syria so far has managed to avoid the role of the next object of the export of American-style democracy, but this situation may change any time.

    Of course, it is impossible to list all the facts of war and armed aggression by the United States in the information material. However, this is more than enough to make a conclusion - the leaders of the United States of all time had an unbeatable claim of being the major war criminals of the modern and contemporary history

    Yep. Just another case of arauca foaming at the mouth. As always, he's getting ever closer to getting that foot so deeply embedded in his oral edifice that he can't extract it. Sad, really.

    It must shock you then to know that the world is currently the most peaceful it has ever been and US dominance is a big part of why:
    http://www.ted.com/talks/steven_pinker_on_the_myth_of_violence.html

    The fact of the matter is that the world was always a violent place, with major world powers always being at war with each other or preparing for the next war they knew was coming. The past 60 years that has seen no major world powers at war is an unprecedented level of international peace. And a lot of that is due to the atom bomb and the dominance of the US.

    Is that a cross-post or plagarism? Is arauca actually the author?

    I guess it shouldn't be surprising to see sour grapes from a former member of the USSR and loser in the game of New World Order. Don't rain on our parade, arauca - we like the peaceful world we created. Sorry your country still sucks, but if you stop thinking like a 1950s communist, maybe you'll figure out how to fix it.

    No (big grin), he didn't write it. In fact, he cannot even write 4 words in row without mucking it up. He's just as lazy in his writing as he is with verbal comprehension.

    Your entire post is right on the button, Russ, he's just a poor excuse of a human being and should shrink back under the rock he crawled from. Pity.

    You know - I'll actually give him Iraq (2003 anyway - 1992 was a "good" war). But Iraq is still an absolutely terrible example of American imperialism because after conquering Iraq, we did some absolutely bizarre and unprecedented (at least before about WWII) things:

    1. We rebuilt it.
    2. We left.

    I doubt it, but am hoping for a break

    I'm really hoping it's a cross post.
