...was the last war with a foreign country which we should have been involved in.

The Civil War may have been unavoidable because we had to get rid of slavery at any cost.

But by keeping our noses out of all other foreign wars, we would not have gotten involved in WWI which led directly and ineveitably to WWII. Almost as by design (Treaty of Versaiile???).

I'm not knowldegable enough about the War of 1812 to say for sure if it could have been avoided - and maybe it was more a defensive war which is a different subject.

The Spanish-American War must be in question as well and I plead ignorant there too.

I'm speaking specifically of FOREIGN wars we've been involved with.
