Good summary of unjust war.


Spanish-American War

STATE-SPONSORED HISTORICAL ACCOUNT: USS Maine was torpedoed by a Spanish ship, accusing Americans with sympathizing with Cuban freedom fighters.

ACTUAL: USS Maine was sunk by a coal bunker explosion, but it was a great opportunity to make the first attempt at US global expansion (Filipines and Puerto Rico)and prove our worthiness as a world force by defeating the Great Spanish Empire.

Mexican War

STATE-SPONSORED HISTORICAL ACCOUNT: The unprovoked, aggressive actions of Mexico against a free and independant Republic of Texas threatened the border security of the United States.

ACTUAL: The US could easily overwhelm the Mexican Army in the name of defending a bordering foreign country (Texas) and collect some booty (CA, AZ, NM, CO, etc.)
