    The U.S. Has Only Been At Peace For 21 Years Total Since Its Birth

    Below, I have reproduced a year-by-year timeline of America’s wars, which reveals something quite interesting: since the United States was founded in 1776, she has been at war during 214 out of her 235 calendar years of existence.  In other words, there were only 21 calendar years in which the U.S. did not wage any wars.

    To put this in perspective:

    * 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 (1935-40) was during the isolationist period of the Great Depression.

    And here is the year-by-year timeline of America’s major wars:

  • Daniel 7:23 (New King James Version)
    23 “Thus he said:
    ‘The fourth beast shall be
    A fourth kingdom on earth,
    Which shall be different from all other kingdoms,
    And shall devour the whole earth,

    Trample it and break it in pieces.


    Daniel 11:36-39 (New King James Version)
    36
    “Then the king shall do according to his own will: he shall exalt and magnify himself above every god, shall speak blasphemies against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the wrath has been accomplished; for what has been determined shall be done. 37 He shall regard neither the God[a] of his fathers nor the desire of women, nor regard any god; for he shall exalt himself above them all.

    38 But in their place he shall honor a god of fortresses; and a god which his fathers did not know he shall honor with gold and silver, with precious stones and pleasant things. 39 Thus he shall act against the strongest fortresses with a foreign god, which he shall acknowledge, and advance its glory; and he shall cause them to rule over many, and divide the land for gain.
US 'defence' (war really) budget is well over US$1T when all the discretionary spending are added ! It is over 50% of tax revenues!

US ‘defence’ (war really) budget.

Discretionary spending in the FY 2013 budget was slashed to $1.264 trillion from $1.319 trillion budgeted in FY 2012. America is a WAR economy!

  1. How stupid can you get? You speak of Discretionary spending only, and NOT the total 3.3T spend. Out of 3.8T spending (and 3.5 Revenue) we spend 660 Billion on military, and 2.45T on Welfare (not counting Discretionary spending which also contains Welfare). So how about we don’t lie?

    Secondly, I oppose vast majority of our wars, as they aren’t anything more than attempts at stupid ideological nonsense (such as “Protecting the Democracy”). However let’s have honest discussion here and not one based of misinformation.
