Funny, 'cause most of the military/peacekeeping action that has been undertaken by US Armed Forces in the last thirty years was at the behest of the United Nations. So why are you blaming the United States? To my knowledge, the only things we've done with our military since 1975-ish WITHOUT UN direction was Panama (iffy on that one) and Iraq II. I'm not sure at all about Vietnam, but since the French were there before we were, I would imagine that also was a UN thing, which would bump my year back to 1960-ish.

All the bullshit between the U.S.A. and the U.S.S.R. was NATO, not "The US". There were at least a dozen other countries involved in that whole mess, not counting the allies of the USSR.

We did that for a long time. Guess what happened? Japan bombed us--AND ON A FUCKIN' SUNDAY O_O . We stuck to the Monroe Doctrine for a good long time. Even WW1, where we did deploy forces to Europe, was a shortlived mission for the States and we immediately went back to trying to stay out of the affairs of the rest of the world (Johnson organized the League of Nations, then refused to actually join it. Isolationist? I think so). And then Pearl Harbour happened, and we all went, "OKAY! FINE! If you all are just gonna poke and jab us, then we'll be more sociable, JEEZ!"

It's funny that now that we're involved in the world, like everyone seemed to want in the 30's and 40's, they all think we should just keep to ourselves. Jeez, can't you guys make up your mind?

I'm not even going to say anything about 9/11. It's obvious that you're a Loose Change brainwashee, so there's no point in going there.

Faux is French for false (False news)
In my opinion Fox is way right-wing bias, and inaccurate

Well I know the us tried to remain neutral from WW1 but Germany attacked us ships with submarines. So I suppose the us tried to stay out of international affairs for a few decades...
So, what difference does it make on a sunday?
I know about the League of nations...

Who the hell are you calling a brainwashee!?

Also Grenada
I wasn't referring to what the UN and US did during the part 30 years, I was talking about now.
Bush went ahead and declared war on Iraq and Afghanistan even though the UN was opposed.

Formally Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam were know as Indochina, a French colony for 100 years (1857 - 1957).
The French surrendered after years of colonial resistance, and turmoil.
Then the us goes in there all arrogant and pompous (without UN support) that they can put an end to the colonial resistance and stop communism, but by 1975 look how that turned out...
Their weakness was fighting in unfamiliar land against a determined group of inhabitants. Same reason Britain surrendered the 13 colonies

Okay I'm done arguing and debating, this is going off topic, so I'm gonna bail out

the americans arnt there to rule the Japanese just so you know. i mean, yes there was the japanese-american war, but they made up and now are on good terms.so i think that they have a right to be there. from what i know, there is a Navy Base in Northern Japan correct? they use that for deployed families and to also represent the bonds they have with that contry.

The japanese and U.S. military isn't a strong force, the best and most dangerous is the russian military. They have more advanced weapons than the U.S. which is why we try to avoid any conflict with them.
