6. Um...1960's--Vietnam? 1950's--Korea?
1898--Spanish-American War? Where we "liberated" the Philippines from the Spaniards and then refused to leave ourselves to the point where the "Philippine Insurgents" went to war with us in the same manner that the "Iraqi Insurgents" are? Then we ended up building several permanent naval ports there? Any of this sound familiar?

Hell, Go back through our entire history, and you will see the exact same war mongering empire spreading throughout our history that is happening right now.

The problem is not that we have changed forever. The problem is that that forever we have REFUSED to change, or evolve as a society. It's just that the guns and bombs have gotten more powerful over the years.
