@NabuquduriuzhurI was appalled by your blatant display of ignorance yesterday when you claimed that the US has sent forces to Central America only 2 times (and one of them, Grenada, isn’t even in Central America by your own definition). The actual number is in fact more than 50. You can find the list of all acknowledged military interventions of the US abroad up to 2001 in the Report for Congress by the Congressional Research Service called “Instances of Use of United States Armed Forces Abroad, 1798-2001”. To help you identify the instances corresponding to Central America you can use these webpages which specify the most noteworthy ones for all Latin America: this page mentions around 30 instances, and this one close to 50 (of course in both cases those are quick counts that do NOT include South America, the Caribbean, or Mexico). The number is obviously much smaller than 700, but still it is completely inadmissible that you try to “correct” a misconception by stating something that is no more than a obvious and blatant lie. That makes you at least as bad if not worse than the original “source”. Thanks to all those who called out Nabuquduriuzhur with specific famous examples that he blatantly decided to “forget”.
