How many years has America NOT been involved in a war?

If you start at 1776 when we initially declared our independence and you ignore the many occupations the United States has taken part in but include the many undeclared wars such as Vietnam, I count roughly 69 years of "relative" peace.

What are the wars after Vietnam?

Well, there was a rebel conflict between Somalia and the US which took place in 1991 (end of the Cold War) and has been going on ever since. In 1998 a terrorist organisation called Al-Qaeda began a serious of bombings on American territory such as the USS Cole and a US embassies in South Africa. Then in 2001, Al-Qaeda's leader Osama Bin Laden, arranged a terrorist attack on the World Trade Centre resulting of the deaths of almost 3,000 innocent civilians. Almost a month after this attack George W Bush launched Operation Enduring Freedom which resulted in invading Afghanistan and other Islamic nations. They're goal is to remove all of Al-Qaeda forces. The UK and some Russian and the Afghan National Army are also helping the US achieve this goal.

Do the terms Desert Storm and the Gulf War refer to the same thing?

No. The term Desert Storm comes from the name of the main offensive, codenamed Operation Desert Storm. So Desert Storm was just the name of the first offensive action carried out by the Coalition forces during the Gulf War. People use the term gulf war because it is easier to say and easier to remember. It's also easier to SPELL. But for historical accuracy: 1. Iran-Iraq War (1980-1988) 2. Operation Desert Storm (January and February 1991) 3. Operation Iraqi Freedom (2003 to present)

How did media effect the war in Iraq?

The American public was excited during the initial phases of Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003; just as they were during the 45 day campaign of Operation Desert Storm in January/February 1991. After those initial "days", both campaigns degenerated into no activity.

What was the significance of the Gulf War?

As proclaimed by President Bush Senior; "...We have beat the Vietnam Syndrome...we are united again at last...and victorious!" Operation Desert Storm brought victory and parades for a newly found pride in our armed forces. It was our first "big" victory in decades! Operation Urgent Fury (1983 Grenada) and Operation Just Cause (1989 Panama) were victories too, but NOT NEARLY AS LARGE AS THIS ONE! Desert Storm re-united the American people as Vietnam had divided it, the meaning behind President Bush Sr.'s statement to the people. Just as the Spanish-American War of 1898 had re-united the American people as the Civil War had divided it, and the Spanish-American War was nicknamed the "Splendid Little War" by the press. Desert Storm has been nicknamed the "100 Hour War."

What are the similarities between the Spanish-American War and the Mexican-American War?

The Spanish-American War of 1898 is MUCH CLOSER to Operation Desert Storm of 1991. 1. Both conflicts occurred in the 90's. 2. The Spanish-American War lasted about 4 months. Desert Storm lasted about 1 month. 3. The Spanish-American War had approximately 400 battle deaths. Desert Storm had approximately 146 US Deaths. 4. The Spanish-American War was nick-named, "The Splendid Little War." Desert Storm was nick-name, "The 100 Hour War." 5. In both conflicts, returning US Troops were given massive Parades upon their return home. 6. Politicians in BOTH conflicts stated that, "The Spanish-American War had brought unity & closure from the bitterness of the US Civil War (1861-1865)", and President Bush Senior announced, "That Desert Storm had erased the Vietnam Syndrome from the United States, and brought Americans together again, from the bitterness of Vietnam." Today's Operation Iraqi Freedom, is MUCH CLOSER to the Philippine Insurrection of 1900, which was spawned by the Spanish-American War of 1898. The Philippine Insurrection, caused FAR MORE US casualties and lasted much longer than the Spanish-American War.
