Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Ever heard of the Monroe Doctrine? Do you know the history of the Spanish-American War and what followed it?
Yes sir. And did it cover the whole world? I am sure you will defend the actions by the Europeans before the USA said no more shit in our back yard. They did so well in Belize and Haiti for example (including some still blame the French for underdevelopment in Haiti).

From the early thirties until WWII, there was a peaceful period that was pretty much the ONLY longer period the USA has not been involved in any armed conflict. However, before that, there were the Banana Wars.
And that worked out so well? The rise of Fascism and Communism. When was the longest period of European non armed conflicts?

And are you willing to compare some "Banana Wars" with the genocides in Africa?

Please defend this: Hungarian Revolution
