1912–13 — Balkan Wars
1990–2000 — wars in the former Yugoslavia

Europe in general
1618–48 — Thirty Years' War
1866 — Austro-Prussian War
1870–1 — Franco-Prussian War
1914–18 — World War I
1939–45 — World War II and the Holocaust
1798 — 1798 rebellion
1848 — Young Ireland rebellion
1867 — Fenian rebellion
1916 — Easter Rising
1919–20 — Irish War of Independence
1920–1 — Irish Civil War

Two Things: 1. I doubt China spends any considerable amount of time teaching their people about US history (or any history other than China for that matter). 2. They always have Chinese history on the USA History Channel. Check the TV guide or something. I just saw something a little while back about the Great Wall.

There's a reason this country is so successful and it's the same reason people are knocking each over to get here. We're going to be sorry when we get rid of those reasons.
Freedom without oppression.... I'm feeling oppressed because my beliefs that our immigration laws should not be broken are being trampled on.

Well I am more into believing the following about America.
America was targeted for attack because we're the brightest beacon for freedom and opportunity in the world. And no one will keep that light from shining.

USA 'nationalism' is causing problems? How about pan-Islamic fascism?
