214 Years of War!

US-War-Graph

As the world moves closer and closer to an offi­cial begin­ning to world war III, and as many peo­ple are seek­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties to de-​escalate the sit­u­a­tion in the Mid­dle East, it is impor­tant to real­ize that the US state and the Amer­i­can peo­ple are sim­ply not equipped or con­di­tioned to pur­sue and real­ize peace. War is indeed the health of our state.

  • Pick any year since 1776 and there is about a 91% chance that Amer­ica was involved in some war dur­ing that cal­en­dar year.
  • No U.S. pres­i­dent truly qual­i­fies as a peace­time pres­i­dent. Instead, all U.S. pres­i­dents can tech­ni­cally be con­sid­ered “war presidents.”
  • The U.S. has never gone a decade with­out war.
  • The only time the U.S. went five years with­out war (193540) was dur­ing the iso­la­tion­ist period of the Great Depression.

Here is a year-​by-​year time­line of America’s involve­ment in mil­i­tary con­flict, as com­piled by Dan­ios of Loon​watch​.com. It is noted that this list is not exhaus­tive, but rather a com­pi­la­tion of events that fit the def­i­n­i­tion of ‘war,’ exclud­ing acts of geno­cide and eth­nic cleans­ing such as were car­ried out against Native Amer­i­can pop­u­la­tions dur­ing the estab­lish­ment of the empire, and also exclud­ing for­eign inter­ven­tions by America’s covert secu­rity agen­cies such as the CIA:
