I was wondering the same thing this afternoon.  You've just made the decision for  me.  Ignore is on!

Hiroshima?  Nagasaki?

Ringing any bells?

The US did not attack Japan - it retaliated once Japan had attacked them.

You seem to be as bad at US history as Americans are.

I'll give you a clue - the very last time that the US attacked anyone capable of retaliating was 207 years ago.

That's a mighty fine hair you're splitting.

Either way, didn't the US have their asses handed to them by Vietnam?

Don't think so. It can be argued that the US pushed Germany and Japan into war but not that they confronted them or attacked them.

It seems not. The part of the North Vietnamese leadership that knew about and escaped the Christmas Bombing were collaborators with the US and opened the countries doors to a new colonialisation by debt (including paying the debts of the losing Saigon government!)

Grenada and Panama elegantly illustrate my point.

Nobody else attacks small and distant countries and colonises them under puppet governments.

Haven't done so since Germany and Belgium attempted to colonise parts of Africa.

Nearly illustrates the other point - the US never attacks nations able to retaliate.

Try the British and New Zealand can you go further than that for colonizing and do you need any more examples of countries in Africa the British colonized ?

How many natives did the British kill that had muskets and cannons , very few if none , doubt Maori or the Aborigine had any?

British Guiana that was on the Empires door step was'nt it (nope it was not)

Uganada - Swaziland - Malawi - Nigeria - Ghana - Kenya - Botswana bet they all had loaded kiwi fruits to repel the Red Coats

Umpteen Islands in the West Indies and the Caribbean

You are such an idiot when you try to revise history

The British always used maximum force to ensure the Empire never retreated
