(ANTIMEDIAWhile there are only a few wars that are recognized by the public education system and mainstream media, the US has been involved in hundreds of different wars and invasions all over the planet in the past 100 years. Below is some information about just two of the wars that are often left out of the history books.

Between 1964 and 1973, the U.S. dropped over two million tons of bombs on Laos during 580,000 bombing missions, making Laos the most heavily bombed country in history. The US dropped more bombs on Laos than they did on both Germany and Japan combined during World War 2.

According to Wikipedia: The United States Invasion of Panama, code-named Operation Just Cause, was the invasion of Panama by the United States in December 1989. It occurred during the administration of U.S. President George H. W. Bush, and ten years after the Torrijos–Carter Treaties were ratified to transfer control of the Panama Canal from the United States to Panama by January 1, 2000.

During the invasion, de facto Panamanian leader, general, and dictator Manuel Noriega was deposed, president-elect Guillermo Endara sworn into office, and the Panamanian Defense Force dissolved.

  1. is there any question who the real terrorists are? the country that bombs nearly every country in the world for decades accuses everyone else of crimes and terrorism, wow, what a shocker, if the nations The US government attacked had as much media and PR power as the United states i think it would be quite a different story.

  2. ya its the communists, its the terrorists. no matter what america does its always justified isnt it, cause its to fight some evil force, funny how America is that evil force and no one sees it cause theyve been blinded by mind control and propaganda from the media and the government and education system. ya so cuba was having problems with latin america and the US thought theyd fix the situation by interfering in another country and killing some people to help them out. sounds just like the more modern middle east situation. Fuck the united states, you are the terrorists, you terrorize everyone in this world and have done it for years, your going to get yours too.

  3. Justin Seed …the evil forces have been many… Nazi fascism, world communism, now the islamofascist, and on, and on, and on… the funny thing is that they ALL hide and do their bad deeds in the shadows, making the United States look like the evil one…. all those forces attacking, subversion, invading…. always the same, for that is how evil works….never in the open, never in the daylight.
    Next time thank the United States, the ONLY nation in the world that has the guts to go out there, and put itself in the line for Democracy, and Liberty.

    Do you really believe yourself in what you are saying ?? As long as people on this planet will think like you – it will only get worse , sadly (I hope that your kids will thank each of you when it all settles down and the bodies are counted) .
    Amerika = terrorist .Look at the old pictures of countries that America invaded to give them 'democracy' and compare them to the new ones ,I think you'll be surprised what 'democracy' means to America …
    You speak of Nazi's — do you know the majority of german nazi best scientists went to work for NASA when the WW2 was over – so you see the germans weren't really defeated ,they just went to America (why and how is that possible you ask , well maybe because the war was just 'war' beetween the 'european and 'american jews and Hitler was really just a puppet in the right place at the right time 😉 ) .Checkout who were Hitler biggest sponsors 😉 . Every war is just about the money,making bussiness and now in America case -to get the natural resources (isn't it funny how America never helps the countries that don't have natural resources – I guess they don't need 'democracy' there and everything is just fine 😉 )
    … dig in , you will find a lot of stuff that it's hard to believe but when you start to connect the dots ,you see how unbeliveably they get together .
    Peace my friend ….
