    Ever since the United States Army massacred 300 Lakotas in 1890,
    American
    forces have intervened elsewhere around the globe 100 times. Indeed the
    United States has sent troops abroad or militarily struck other
    countries'
    territory 216 times since independence from Britain. Since 1945 the
    United
    States has intervened in more than 20 countries throughout the world.

    Since World War II, the United States actually dropped bombs on 23
    countries. These include: China 1945-46, Korea 1950-53, China 1950-53,

    1967-69, Grenada 1983, Lebanon 1984, Libya 1986, El Salvador 1980s,
    Nicaragua 1980s, Panama 1989, Iraq 1991-1999, Sudan 1998, Afghanistan
    1998,
    and Yugoslavia 1999.

            Marko, here's one thing I need to ask you though. What are you going to do about the United States in the end? Don't you think you're expending all that energy for nothing? Same question for the Jihadists and the 2 billion of their supporters.

            This country will remain here like an immovable rock long after you, your children and children of your children are dead and forgotten.

            The United States is forever.

                Oh, Marko...

                Please don't forget to add all horrible atrocities the British Empire committed over years, but let's not also forget what French, German, Russian, Chinese, Japanese, Islamic, Athenian, Spartan, Persian, Macodeonian, Roman, and some African Empires did to maintain their power and longevity. None of them had spotless records, America is no exception.

                But, I'd wager what America did is actually done on a smaller scale than all other previous empires including your beloved United Kingdom did.

                Therefore, your post is pointless and totally out of touch with the reality....

                  You're talking about a transition from one form of government to another, even mention the original form of government. But the American people are not the White House and the White House on its own is not the American people. It's the American spirit, not government, that is forever. Forever and ever. It's the spirit the enemies of this country are after. The pride, the firmness of the handshake, the self-confident swagger, the ability to hold your head high whether stupid foreign masses like it or not.

                    Human society can only progress when people don't accept the status quo. History isn't made by people who accept reality. It's made by people who have hopes and dreams for a new reality. While the 'hopes and dreams' of a few islamic fundamentalists are certainly irrational, it's still what drives all humans in the end. It's what drove the American colonists, it's what drove the French Revolutionaries, etc.

                    Since humans are mortal, what's the point of anything we do anyways? Isn't it ALL just one giant waste of energy in the end?
