    Game still over...you said 100 years. 1898 believe it or not....was more than 100 years ago and I am only going by the parameters that YOU set.

    Also...it isn't the US government that determined them to be major...it is historians in general....of which many likely contributed to YOUR link.

    He shoots....he scores....again.

    If we want to open it up beyond 100 years my drunken non friend...then I guess we could open it up to the bloodletting that took place in Europe back in the day. That would dwarf anything America might have done.

    This is fun.

    You're country, if I am not mistaken, is in the southern hemisphere, no :confused: If I am correct, it was colonized by a great warring nation, correct :confused: Your people are not w/o blame, so it would appear.

    You're lying again. I didn't set any parameters at all.
    An "Act of War" is not conditional on the number of casualties incurred. It's defined by the actual act and the intent. The US went to war against Iraq in the first Oil War before a single American life was lost. The US went to war with Vietnam after the staged "Gulf of Tonkin" incident and there were no lives lost in that incident either. Whether the US Government or historians in general consider them to be major conflicts or is irrelevant.
    All you've done is open your mouth to change feet.
    :D :D :D

    It's your link...not mine.

    The only one who still thinks you have a point is you and the other haters...anyone with an IQ bigger than their waist size will tell you that many other countries have a far more sinister record of waging war than America.

    We're just better at it than them.

    Apparently I need to learn to speak Dummyese so you can understand me better.

    I didn't say we didn't DO it....I said we didn't START it.

    Are you infatuated with Rupert too? Is that another Brokeback thing you've got going on?

    "We are expected to have a memory span not to exceed the last episode of american idol"
    -jello biafra

    waddabout the reaganesque exploits in costa rica, el salvador, panama, and hey so easily forgot, grenada. guns for drugs, anyone?

    the demonization of an enemy is what makes 'em worth attacking, and this is based on the profit motive for the multination corporations, who exist to exploit the resources of any given region. this is what is not understood by those who be ignorant of these fundamentals, or understood yet rationalized and condoned by those who do not oppose this, justiying exploitation for profit at the price of humanity and environment.

    if you live in a nation that is complicit in these crimes it would seem the right thing to do would be to support germany and their course of action in these criminal matters...

    by any measure, the us exceeds any in commiting terrorist acts. waving the flag and popping a can 'o bud does not make this any less so.

    can i give ya a list? 'cause it seems you are in the dark. pulling one's head out of the sand can start here and now.
