The US government does, sanman. That's all I'm saying.
Call NATO antagonistic towards Russia, but we've gone longer in human history without a major war in Europe than ever before, and it's let the global economy build up for the majority of a century uninterrupted. Perhaps it's less about Europeans living free, and more about valuable and developed trade partners living with functioning factories and markets?
Nah, the Cold War ended, and warmongers in Washington are trying to revive it again. They're now also trying to revise history to claim it never ended.
"without a major war in Europe??" What about the major war it caused in Afghanistan and the 9-11 attacks?? That was America's longest war ever.
Remember - there was no jihadist problem in Afghanistan - until America created one. It was just a backward backwater country, until America decided to create a jihadist cesspool there --- all with the goal of using it against Russia
How did Japanese militarism arise in the lead-up to WW2?
Read the private letters of President Teddy Roosevelt
Roosevelt knew that Japan coveted the Korean Peninsula as a springboard to its Asian expansion. Back in 1900, Roosevelt had written, “I should like to see Japan have Korea.” When, in February 1904, Japan broke off relations with Russia, President Roosevelt said publicly that he would “maintain the strictest neutrality,” but privately he wrote, “The sympathies of the United States are entirely on Japan’s side.”
Theodore Roosevelt, not F.D.R., had a greater effect on Japan’s decision to attack Pearl Harbor.
In June 1905, Roosevelt made world headlines when apparently on his own initiative he invited the two nations to negotiate an end to their war. Roosevelt’s private letter to his son told another story: “I have of course concealed from everyone literally everyone the fact that I acted in the first place on Japan’s suggestion ... . Remember that you are to let no one know that in this matter of the peace negotiations I have acted at the request of Japan and that each step has been taken with Japan’s foreknowledge, and not merely with her approval but with her expressed desire.”
All this crap happened because Roosevelt just wanted to do crap against Russia
The Imperial Japanese were the predecessors of the Afghan jihadists. They were both cultivated by America to fight Russia.
Do you not see the massive blowback cost that happened from crap like this? Look at the huge number of people who died from these wars -- people even died from nukes being dropped on them.
You conservatives are so f***ing predictable with your defense of Daddy Putin. Always need an autocrat to look up to and glorify.
People like Putin don't hold ideologies. They are all about power and they will exploit ideologies if it is in their best interest. This has nothing to do with communism and everything to do with an autocrat bullying a sovereign nation. Kindly f*** off with the excuses for your Daddy.
You're totally ignorant. You're obviously some extraterritorialist with foreign loyalties who wants America to be his sucker to fight his wars.
Go fight your own wars. Go pick up a rifle and swim over there to fight if you want to. Stop trying to suck Americans into fighting your battles for you.
