When you write the United States, you need to Capitalize the abreviations of the USA. The UNITED STATES has been asked to come and help the Innocent ones in whatever country they go to. Our Country does not just go in and invade. Your missing the boat. The United States has been called upon to come and assist. So we take our Money and all the equipment overseas to help the Innocent People who are being neglected by their own Government. I will name one and that is Africa. The Government , neglects the People and even allows them to Starve. Our Red Cross has sent billions of Food and Relief Funds to many Countries. Why don't you tell us what Country your from and defending , then I can tell you, how America has come to your Aid. This is a true example on what we mean when we say, " They Bite The Hand That Has Helped Them. " Almost all the Countries we have bent over to help , have bitten our hand. That's gratitude for ya.
