    You mean like you did after WW1? How did that work out for you? Oh yeh the great depression, probation and then Pearl Harbour.

    Re: US Sending Troops to South Sudan

    What is the full story then? They are sending in 150 troops? Not exactly an army. That seems to be a fair and measured response to what is going on. Sounds to be like a good enough number to secure the embassy and any Americans fleeing the violence. However, there will always be those who see a conspiracy or agenda behind every action the US takes.
    - There was never a good war, or a bad peace.
    - Idealistically, everything should work as you planed it to. Realistically, it depends on how idealistic you are as to the measure of success.
    - Better to be a pessimist before, and an optimist afterwords.

    Unless the bad guys come over the hill with 1,000 troops and a dozen heavy weapons (mortars, machine-guns, RPG's, etc.)

    If we're going, let's go with a division sized combined arms unit, hunt down the rebels and kill every-last-one of the bastards.

    Simple mistake I suppose, I'm sure you meant to say prohibition. Prohibition was the agenda of the progressives in America.

    The Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor was a direct result of America being involved ten thousand miles from it shores.

    In fact the fuse for war between Japan and the United States, Great Britain and the Dutch was lit during the Theodore Roosevelt administration.

    As soon as Japan was awarded the German territories in the Central Pacific (The Mandates) in 1919, Japan started drawing up it's plans for war against the USA and the UK and the United States adopted war Plan Orange in 1922 which were the plans used for fighting the war against Japan in the Pacific during WW ll.
