Some of those are more than a bit of a stretch. Some of them are completely inaccurate. The US has done enough bad things in its history worthy of legitimate criticism that it weakens your argument by tossing in frivolous examples.

PANAMA 1964
Control of Panama Canal Zone challenged; rioting against US forces.


The Canal Zone was US property.

INDONESIA 1965
Army coup assisted to an unknown degree by CIA;


Key word here being "unknown". Perhaps it was so unknown as to be nonexistent?

DOMINICAN REPUBLIC 1965-66
Troops invade during election as pre-emptive action against leftist rebellion or communist government.


An out and out lie. I have posted in this forum several times (with supporting quotes and links) what occurred in the Dominican Republic. Do a search for those posts if you are interested in TRUTH rather than Leftist propaganda.

U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS 1989
Troops restore order after civil unrest spurred by Hurricane Hugo.


This is just absurd. I know several people who live in the US Virgins. First of all, note that it is a US protectorate, hence the "US" part of the name of the country -- "US Virgin Islands". Secondly, it wasn't a freaking invasion -- rioters were KILLING people for crying out loud.

SOMALIA 1992-94
US-led United Nations occupation during civil war.


There were many other countries who supplied peace-keeping troops to Somalia. Is the US supposed to ignore UN requests?

YUGOSLAVIA 1992-94
US troops in NATO operation to enforce sanctions against Serbia and Montenegro.


So the US is supposed to ignore its NATO commitments?

BOSNIA 1993-95
Operation Deny Flight patrols civil war no-fly zone; air combat, Serbs bombed.


Same comment as above.

CROATIA 1995
American and NATO forces attack Bosnian Serb airfields prior to Croatian offensive.


Same comment as above.

YUGOSLAVIA 1999
US aircraft play the key role in heavy NATO air strikes against Serbian forces in Kosovo.


Same comment as above.

MACEDONIA 2001
US forces in NATO's Operation Essential Harvest partially disarm Albanian rebels.


Same comment as above.

There are others on which I could comment, but these will do for openers. What was the point you were trying to make by posting this list?

Posts like yours are a perfect example of too much free time, too vivid an imagination, too low of an IQ, and a burning desire to blame the US for all the worlds ills.

Grow up.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation.

what i find interesting is that these posts are just cut and pasted without even finding out if they're right or not...."It's on the Internet so it must be true!!"

Perhaps it would be more accurate to say....

"It's on the Internet and it fits my preconceived notion and slams America so it must be true!!"
