Why does the US always go to war in the subjunctive mood these days?
Does the USA always go to war? The last war the USA was in was
over 60 years ago.
Bullshit. 60 years back is 1952, and the US was in the Korean War... which
_still has not ended_. There's an armistice, not a peace treaty.
Since 1952, the US has been directly involved in wars in Vietnam, Laos,
Cambodia, Iran, Iraq (at least twice), Kuwait, Afghanistan (at least twice),
Somalia, Zaire/Rep of Congo, Haiti (at least three times), Lebanon (at least
three times), Guatemala, Honduras, Chile, Cuba, Grenada, and quite probably
others that I've missed. The US has been indirectly involved in wars (some of
them civil wars) with Argentina, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Angola, Central
African Republic/Empire, Uganda, Pakistan (no, I don't mean the current drone
campaign), Burma/that funny thing stating with 'M' that it was renamed to,
Thailand, Indonesia, the Philippines, Mexico (you don't think so? What do
_you_ call the current goings-on with Los Zetas, et al?), Sierra Leone,
Liberia, Nigeria, the Sudan, and, of course, Israel vs everyone in range (you
don't think so? Tricky Dick Nixon saved Israel in 1973 by, amongst other
things, stripping the US Army in Europe of anti-tank munitions and flying
said munitions to Israel. Without Nixon, the epic defensive battles on the
Golan would have been lost, after the IDF ran out of ammo. It's no
coincidence that the standard, made-in-Israel, Israeli main battle tank was
designed, _after_ 1973, to have considerably more ammo capacity than most
other MBTs, and to have large doors in the back... for a squad of infantry,
or for quick re-ammunitioning, or both.
Get real, man.
