22. I'd say they owe us
We lost 53,000 in WWI protecting Europe
We lost 291,000 in WWII protecting Europe and the Pacific
We lost 34,000 protecting South Korea from a Chinese-driven communist takeover

Kennedy at least started our loss of 47,000 in Vietnam to protect them from another Chinese-driven communist takeover ("pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and success of liberty").

That's almost half a million Americans dead when we could have just stayed out of it and let other countries get taken over by force of arms.
