First settlers

The first explorers came to America and started to shut dead Natives. Explorers had to come back home with the prospect of future catches for their countries.

The American Revolutionary War

This war (1775-1783, also American War of Independence) was about America letting go its status as a colony of Great Britain.

The Mexican–American War

This war was an armed conflict between the United States and Mexico from 1846 to 1848 in the wake of the 1845 U.S. annexation of Texas.

The American Civil War

This war (1861–1865) was between the American South and North.

The Spanish–American War

This war was a military conflict between Spain and the United States that took place between April and August 1898, over the issues of the liberation of Cuba.


The United States entered the war after Germany's U-boats sank the ocean liner Lusitania.


Between the United States entry on 8 December 1941 and the end of the war in 1945, over 16 million Americans served in the United States military. Many others served with the Merchant Marine and paramilitary civilian units like the WASPs.

The Cold War (1945–1991)

The war was the continuing state of political conflict, military tension, and economic competition existing after World War II (1939–1945), primarily between the USSR and its satellite states, and the powers of the Western world, including the United States. The war was really a conflict through military coalitions, strategic conventional force deployments, a nuclear arms race, espionage, proxy wars, propaganda, and technological competition, such as the Space Race. The USSR and the US disagreed about the configuration of the post-war world while occupying most of Europe. The Soviet Union created the Eastern Bloc with the eastern European countries it occupied, annexing some as Soviet Socialist Republics and maintaining others as satellite states, some of which were later consolidated as the Warsaw Pact (1955–1991). The US and some western European countries established containment of communism as a defensive policy, establishing alliances such as NATO to that end. Elsewhere, in Latin America and Southeast Asia, the USSR fostered communist revolutions, opposed by several western countries and their regional allies. The Cold War featured periods of relative calm and of international high tension: the Berlin Blockade (1948–1949), the Korean War (1950–1953), the Berlin Crisis of 1961, the Vietnam War (1959–1975), the Cuban Missile Crisis (1962), the Soviet war in Afghanistan (1979–1989), and the Able Archer 83 NATO exercises in November 1983. In the 1980s, the United States increased diplomatic, military, and economic pressures against the USSR, which had already suffered severe economic stagnation. Thereafter, Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev introduced the liberalizing reforms of perestroika ("reconstruction", 1987) and glasnost ("openness", 1985). The Cold War ended after the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991, leaving the United States as the dominant military power, and Russia possessing most of the Soviet Union's nuclear arsenal.

The Korean War

The war was between North Korea (Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, DPRK) and South Korea (Republic of Korea, ROK) that started on 25 June 1950 and paused with an armistice signed 27 July, 1953. To date, the war has not been officially ended through treaty, and occasional skirmishes have been reported in the border region. The Korean peninsula was politically divided as a legacy of the geopolitics of defeating the Japanese Empire on the peninsula in 1945. Soviet Union forces fighting the Japanese advanced south to the 38th Parallel, which later became the political border between the two Koreas. Despite talks in the months preceding open warfare, continual cross-border skirmishes and raids at the 38th Parallel, and the political frustration of failed all-Korea elections in 1948, escalated to warfare. The reunification negotiations ceased when North Korean forces invaded South Korea on 25 June 1950. The United States and the United Nations intervened on the side of the South. After a rapid UN counteroffensive that repelled North Koreans past the 38th Parallel and almost to the Yalu River, the People's Republic of China (PRC) came to the aid of the North. With the PRC's entry into the conflict, the fighting eventually ceased with an armistice that restored the original border between the Koreas at the 38th Parallel and created the Korean Demilitarized Zone, a 2.5 mile wide buffer zone between the two Koreas. North Korea unilaterally withdrew from the armistice on 27 May 2009, thus returning to a de facto state of war; as of this date, only a small naval skirmish has occurred. During the war, both North and South Korea were sponsored by external powers, thus facilitating the war's metamorphosis from a simple civil war to a proxy war between powers involved in the larger Cold War.

The Vietnam War

The war, also known as the Second Indochina War, was a Cold War military conflict that occurred in Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia from September 26, 1959 to April 30, 1975. The war was fought between the communist North Vietnam, supported by its communist allies, and the government of South Vietnam, supported by the United States and other anti-communist nations. The Viet Cong, a lightly armed South Vietnamese communist-controlled common front, largely fought a guerrilla war against anti-communist forces in the region. The North Vietnamese Army engaged in a more conventional war, at times committing large units into battle. U.S. and South Vietnamese forces relied on air superiority and overwhelming firepower to conduct search and destroy operations, involving ground forces, artillery and airstrikes. The United States entered the war to prevent a communist takeover of South Vietnam as part of their wider strategy of containment. Military advisors arrived beginning in 1950. U.S. involvement escalated in the early 1960s, with U.S. troop levels tripling in 1961 and tripling again in 1962. U.S. combat units were deployed beginning in 1965. Operations spanned boarders, with Laos and Cambodia heavily bombed. Involvement peaked in 1968 at the time of the Tet Offensive. After this, U.S. ground forces were withdrawn as part of a policy called Vietnamization. Despite the Paris Peace Accords, signed by all parties in January 1973, fighting continued. The Case-Church Amendment, passed by the U.S. Congress in response to the anti-war movement, prohibited direct U.S. military involvement after August 15, 1973. U.S. military and economic aid continued until 1975. The capture of Saigon by North Vietnamese army in April 1975 marked the end of Vietnam War. North and South Vietnam were reunified the following year. The war exacted a huge human cost in terms of fatalities, including 3 to 4 million Vietnamese from both sides, 1.5 to 2 million Laotians and Cambodians, and 58,159 U.S. soldiers.

Gulf War

The considerable dependence of the industrialized world on oil, with much of the proved oil reserves situated in Middle Eastern countries, became evident to the U.S., first in the aftermath of the 1973 world oil shock and later in the second energy crisis of 1979. Although in real terms oil prices fell back to pre-1973 levels through the 1980s, resulting in a windfall for the oil-consuming nations (especially North America, Western Europe, and Japan), the vast reserves of the leading Middle East producers guaranteed the region its strategic importance. By the early 1990s the politics of oil still proved as hazardous as it did in the early 1970s. Conflict in the Middle East triggered yet another international crisis on August 2, 1990, when Iraq invaded and attempted to annex neighboring Kuwait, as its nineteenth province. Leading up to the invasion, Iraq complained to the United States Department of State about Kuwaiti slant drilling. This had been ongoing for years, but now Iraq needed oil revenues to pay off its debts from the Iran–Iraq War and avert an economic crisis. Saddam Hussein ordered troops to the Kuwaiti border, creating alarm over the prospect of an invasion. April Glaspie, the United States ambassador to Iraq, met with Saddam in an emergency meeting, where the Iraqi president stated his intention to continue talks. Iraq and Kuwait then met for a final negotiation session, which failed. Saddam then sent his troops into Kuwait. U.S. officials feared that Iraqi President Saddam Hussein was then on the verge of armed conflict with oil-rich Saudi Arabia, a close ally of Washington's since the 1940s. The Western world condemned the invasion as an act of aggression; U.S. President George H.W. Bush compared Saddam to Adolf Hitler and declared that if the United States and international community did not act, aggression would be encouraged elsewhere in the world. The U.S. and Britain, two of the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council, persuaded the Security Council to give Iraq a deadline to leave Kuwait. The Western world was determined to not let the Kuwaiti oil supply fall under the control of Saddam, fearing it would have a dire impact on the global economy. Saddam was pushing oil exporting countries to raise prices and cut back production. Westerners, however, remembered the destabilizing effects of the Arab oil embargo of the 1970s. Saddam ignored the deadline and the Security Council declared war on Iraq. The war began in January 1991, with U.S. troops forming the majority of the coalition which participated in Operation Desert Storm. By the time Iraqi troops withdrew from Kuwait in late February, Iraq had lost approximately 20,000 troops, with some sources citing as many as 100,000 casualties on the Iraqi side.

Arab-Israeli wars: proxy wars for the US.

In the aftermath of World war II there were numerous Arab-Israeli wars namely the:
a)     1948 Palestine war;
b)     1956 Suez war;
c)     June 1967 Six-Day war between Israel and Egypt/Syria/Jordan;
d)     1969-70 War of Attrition between Israel and Egypt;
e)     October 1973 Yom Kippur war between Israel and Egypt/Syria; and
f)     Israel's June 1982 invasion of Lebanon.
g)     In 2001, the Jews of Israel declared war against the Palestinian refugees and has been at war ever since.
h)     July 2006, Israel-Lebanon war.

These wars are statements of guilt on the part of Israel being the 'US-milpost' (milpost: military post or a proxy of the US) and of the leadership of Israel being of military type, and that in fact, Israel is the Trojan Horse of the US for the invasion of the Middle East and neighboring nations, including China. All these wars are really proxy wars whereby Israel invaded the land on behalf of the US.

After each war America became gradually committed to the security and well-being of Israel. America maintained Israel's superiority over Muslims through regular infusions of money and arms, war products, war equipment, war planes, war ships, and weapons of mass destruction including nuclear. During the Cold War America had a strategic interest in containing Soviet influence and its expansion in the Middle East. The money and arms given to Israel was used to fend off challenges to American interests from radical, Islamic, and Soviet-backed forces. The American support of Israel was criticized by the Arab Middle East and the Islamic world and has fed the radical Islamic fundamentalist movements. Another strategic interest of the United States was the need to preserve access to two-thirds of the world's known petroleum reserves.

September 11, 2001 freedom fighter attacks

On the morning of September 11, 2001, four airliners were hijacked; two of them were flown into the World Trade Center towers in New York City and another into the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia, destroying both towers and taking just under 3,000 lives. The fourth plane crashed in southern Pennsylvania after some passengers fought back and are believed to have caused the piloting hijackers to crash. The immense shock, grief and anger brought on by the attacks profoundly altered the national mood; it was found that Osama bin Laden and his al Qaeda terrorist network sponsored the attacks and President Bush announced a "war on terror." Congress approved several measures to protect against future attacks, including creating the Department of Homeland Security and passing the USA PATRIOT Act, which was criticized by groups such as the American Civil Liberties Union. The administration's military response was to invade Afghanistan on October 7, 2001, targeting al Qaeda and the Taliban government that supported and sheltered them. The U.S. was joined by a coalition which included forces from more than a dozen countries, and was successful in removing the Taliban from power, although fighting continues between the coalition and Afghans of various factions. In 2002, the GDP growth rate rose to 2.8%. A major short-term problem in the first half of 2002 was a sharp decline in the stock market, fueled in part by the exposure of dubious accounting practices in some major corporations. Another was unemployment, which experienced the longest period of monthly increase since the Great Depression. The robustness of the market, combined with the unemployment rate, led some economists and politicians to refer to the situation as a "jobless recovery." Nevertheless, the United States between 2003 and 2005 made a significant economic recovery from the post 9/11 recession.

What is Canada doing in Afghanistan?

Up until now Canada was on a peace-keeping mission but this was changed to a war-like stand. It looks like we want to show Americans we can be as they are: big guys with big guns, and ready to kill. Why? What are we really doing in Afghanistan? Why are we in Afghanistan when right here in Canada we need all the help we can get? We sure dont need to steal the oil and gas. Even if we had no oil and gas reserves, no resources, I would not agree of stealing anything. So why are we, Canadians, in Afghanistan? Afghans want all foreigners out of Afghanistan so what will it take to understand what they are telling us?

The current war and occupation of Iraq were undertaken in disregard of the most fundamental principles of Global Law and with obvious contempt for truth, posterity, and the morality which should guide all human actions. The result has been the occupation and colonization of Iraq and the destruction of its economy and increased violence and insecurity for the overwhelming majority of the Iraqi population. The world cannot sit by passively and watch the continued deterioration of the future of our planet.

Second Iraq War

In his State of the Union address in January 2002, President George W. Bush called Iran, Iraq, and North Korea an "axis of evil," accusing them of supporting terrorism and seeking to acquire weapons of mass destruction. The Bush administration began making a public case for an invasion of Iraq, since Saddam Hussein supported terrorism, had violated the 1991 U.N.-imposed ceasefire, and possessed biological, chemical, and nuclear weapons, among other charges. Some important allies of the U.S., including India, Japan, Turkey, New Zealand, France, Germany, and Canada, did not believe that the evidence for the President's accusations was well-founded enough to justify a full-scale invasion, especially as military personnel were still needed in Afghanistan. The United Nations Security Council did not approve of the invasion, and the U.S. therefore provided most of the forces in the invasion of Iraq. With the support of a coalition whose major partners included the United Kingdom, Australia, Poland, Spain, and Italy, Iraq was invaded on March 20, 2003. After six weeks of combat between the coalition and the Iraqi army, the invading forces had secured control of many key regions; Saddam had fled his palace, his regime clearly over; on May 1, Bush declared, under a sign reading "mission accomplished," that major ground operations were at an end.

In the name of a preventive strike on Iraq, the US government fabricated a web of lies.

We were told that the war on Iraq was waged because there were weapons of mass destruction, and that there were linkages between Saddam Hussein and Al-Qua'ida. We were told that the US authorities were deeply concerned for Iraqi people and their suffering under Saddam Hussein and they longed for their freedom and democracy. If all this were true, then why have no weapons of mass destruction been found? Bush has been lying to the American people concerning the reason for invading Iraq. He is still lying today to the entire world. Now his excuse is to change the entire Middle East nations into a democracy. He will see that friendly government officials are elected. The reality is that 'friendly' means that Americans have easy access to the oil and gas reserves until they use it all. At such a time they will leave Iraq. Well no! Americans are in Iraq and will stay in Iraq for as long as there is money to make selling arms and oil and gas to have. Truly they are there for the long haul. But they said they were there to build a democracy. Well! Ya! That too! Have I missed something?! Gees! No, the idea of building democracy in the Middle East is for the good souls back home in America, you know those people back home who don't have a clue about what is going on, or pretend that they dont. Americans are in the Middle East for the long haul. The war industry in America needs to be in the Middle East, that is where the money is. The war industry in America gives jobs to about half of the American population. So it is a matter of survival. Now, being in Iraq, Americans will have the opportunity to invade China. Invade China...!! Who said that?! Now, now! I did not say bombing China with thousand of nuclear war heads, which they might do anyway eventually. That would be stupid! No, it will not happen that way. What have I said, money. Ya! Americans will get the Chinese people to work for them. Let the big cow (China) gives all its milk. How is that possible?? Very simple! And Americans have got very good at that. Get them to buy arms and make sure they kill each others in the process. Americans have mastered the arts of war from way back when. They have already made trillions of dollars in the Middle East. Everyone has been buying their arms. So China is the biggies. Lots of money to make. First, they will allow China to get their oil and gas from Iran. The chinese economy will be good because they have energy and the base products, oil and gas, from which they can make plastics. And with plastics they can manufacture all kinds of toys such as computers. Thousands of different products make use of plastics. Now the American Congress has passed legislation to allow rich, powerful, American corporations to invest in China. Why?! Because of cheap labour! No environmental costs! Why give a 'real job' to an American when they can give the same job to someone in China who is highly motivated to produce, a 'bee-type of producers'? Many reasons. The facts are that China now is working for American corporations. Now this is when the American war industry gets into the picture. They have to sell arms to the Chinese people. And how are they going to do that?! The war industry has had plenty of learning in the Middle East. They will make sure that a Chinese province or community is at war against another Chinese community. You know, there has to be a reason why people hate each other. So creating hate between the Chinese people will be a priority. Create a chaos! Remember the Iran-Iraq war... So easy! So well masterminded! Actually this has nothing to do with intelligence. Americans have done this by pure instinct, that of a predator instinct. Like a bird would fly at high speed between the branches of a tree does not need intelligence. It is an instinctive maneuver a bird has learned to do naturally throughout its evolution as a species. Same thing here when the American and British people create ' hate ' to make money. You only need to listen to your own basic instincts to be successful at making money in our society. But they would need intelligence to create peace. To create peace is a much more difficult thing to do! Why!? Because peace goes against our survival instinct as a people and, as world population increases to 10 billion people, things will get much more difficult to manage. To create peace by 'destroying and killing' is basic instincts, not intelligence. Intelligence seems to be what is missing most from our world leaders. Even the leadership at the United Nations (UN) is bad, corrupted and subjected to powerful lobbying groups and nations and, guess which nations are doing most of the bullying: America, and Great Britain.

Obama war on Afghanistan

Oil & gas, and not gold, have now become the lifelines of all nations, including China, India and USA. These countries rank first as global consumers of the world’s oil production and are seeking security of energy supply but they are doing so in different ways. The new world order is characterized by fierce international competition for dwindling stocks of oil, natural gas,coal,and uranium. Nothing of significance takes place in the Middle East and surrounding nations without a scenario with energy as a primary focus and goal. The global energy war, or the Blood Oil & Gas War, has pipelines as its bloodstream and includes the major oil & gas resources of the planet. Global financial crisis or not, oil and natural gas are the long-term keys to an inexorable transfer of economic power from the West to Asia. Even in the worst of economic times, the energy war has shown a relentless competition between the West and Asia, be it in the Middle East, in the Caspian theater, or in African oil-rich states like Angola, Nigeria and Sudan. It is crucial for regional powers in Asia to integrate the energy sector via energy pipelines that will link the Persian Gulf, Central Asia, South Asia, Russia, and China. The Iran-Pakistan-India (IPI) pipeline, also known as the "peace pipeline," whose construction was initiated in 2008. Both Pakistan and India stood shoulder to shoulder in rejecting relentless pressure from the White House administration to stop this deal. Why Afghanistan matters is simply not part of the discussion at the White House. Obama and his Administration want the world to believe Americans are invading Afghanistan to liberate Afghan women. An important goal of U.S. foreign policy since President Richard Nixon's era in the early 1970s has been to split Russia and China. The leadership of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) has been focused on this since the U.S. Congress passed the Silk Road Strategy Act five days before beginning the bombing of Serbia in March 1999. That act clearly identified Amercan geo-strategic interests from the Black Sea to western China with building a mosaic of American protectorates in Central Asia and militarizing the Eurasian energy corridor. Afghanistan sits conveniently at the crossroads of any new Silk Road linking the Caucasus to western China, and four nuclear powers (China, Russia, Pakistan, and India) lurk in the vicinity. "Losing" Afghanistan and its key network of U.S. military bases would, from the Pentagon's point of view, be a disaster. Afghanistan itself is a lot more than the towering mountains of the Hindu Kush and immense deserts: it's believed to be rich in unexplored deposits of natural gas, petroleum, coal, copper, chrome, talc, barites, sulfur, lead, zinc, and iron ore, as well as precious and semiprecious stones. It is crucial for the White House to build several important military bases in Afghanistan for the build up and control of pipelines in the region. The military will see that oil & gas from the Middle East will flow to the West, including of course to European nations. For decades, Central and South Asia have been considered by American energy strategists crucial places to plant the flag; and once the Soviet Union collapsed,control of the energy-rich former Soviet republics in the region was quickly seen as essential to future U.S. global power. The invasion of Afghanistan has made both Russia and China on the defensive.China has vital interests in the region. For some time now China has seen Americans as invading the oil and gas lands of Central Asia, especially in the Caspian Sea region and so, in June 2001, Chinese leaders joined with Russia to form the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), a unique alliance of five non-Western civilizations -- Russian, Chinese, Muslim, Hindu, and Buddhist -- and a multi-layered economic and military regional cooperation society that would function as a kind of security blanket around the upper rim of Afghanistan. In April 2008, Turkmenistan, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and India (TAPI) actually signed an agreement to build a pipeline to deliver natural gas from Turkmenistan to Pakistan and India without the involvement of either Iran or Russia. It would cut right through the heart of Western Afghanistan, in Herat, and head south across lightly populated Nimruz and Helmand provinces, where the Taliban, various Pashtun guerrillas and assorted highway robbers now merrily run rings around U.S. and NATO forces and where the U.S. is now building in Dasht-e-Margo ("the Desert of Death") a new mega-base to host President Obama's surge troops. TAPI's rival is IPI.The SCO has expanded its aims and scope since 2001. Today, Iran, India, and Pakistan enjoy "observer status" in an organization that increasingly aims to control and protect not just regional energy supplies, but the build up of pipelines in every direction. This is, of course, the role the White House ruling elite would have wanted NATO to play across Eurasia. Given that Russia and China expect the SCO to play a similar role across Asia, clashes of various sorts are inevitable. Beijing's scenario is truly the rising world order of the twenty-first century but will be significantly further defined by a quadrangle of BRIC nations (Brazil, Russia, India, and China) plus the future Islamic triangle of Iran, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey. Add in a unified South America, no longer in control by Americans, and you have a global SCO-plus.
