As a Texan, I can say that that's not exactly what happened. You see, Texas had a population of about 3,000 in the early 1800s. So Mexico, newly independent from Spain, invited a bunch of American settlers to come to Texas for some cheap land. Americans bring slaves, Mexico no like slaves (being ruled by white Spainards that had racial codes for public office tends to do that). Americans want slaves, come and take it. The end

The Independence War, naturally. It was so just that it's obscured every other war we've fought - mostly because those wars were unjust and embarrassing or our role in them was pretty contemptible. If this were a 'your country's most kvlt wars' I'd have said the Thirty Years because we spend the whole conflict raping everyone and digesting the German countryside, and not for the soldiers' benefit of course.
So was Qutlumush, until he wasn't. You Greeks need to stop listening to idiots, Turks and socialists every time they bleat about imperialism, as though taking someone's money makes you their slave. They're your enemies, dummy, they'll say anything to look like the poor innocent victims or concerned citizens or whatever. Imperialist powers fork over billions' worth of aid in the vague hopes that their 'proxies' will achieve at least part of an objective while pursuing their own interests, why the hell should Greece have refused? Out of 'solidarity with the oppressed?'
>Out of 'solidarity with the oppressed?' Yes, Greece takes pride over not being an i*perialist power.
British Invasions of the River Plate en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_invasions_of_the_River_Plate >British invade Buenos Aires twice. Get repelled by local residents in improvised militias. These invasions are remembered positively today because they triggered the independence movement just three years later, as Argentines realized the Spanish crown had basically abandoned them to their fate yet they could still fend for themselves with no reinforcements.
War of Argentine Independence en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Argentine_War_of_Independence >Fought because colonists were not allowed self-rule and Buenos Aires waw cucked by the Spanish monopoly and wanted free trade. Proceeded to liberate not just the local Viceroyalty (which would become Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay), but also liberated Chile and Peru-Bolivia asking for nothing in return. A United Provinces fleet under Hipolito Bouchard circumnavigated the globe and also sparked rightful rebellions against Spanish rule in Central America, California and the Philippines.
Cisplatine War en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cisplatine_War >Again the United Provinces (Argentina) was the good guy, repelling an unprovoked Brazilian invasion into the then Spanish-speaking province of Uruguay. Uruguayan people fought on the side of the United Provinces, in the end were granted independence as a compromise between both Argentina and Brazil. (War ended in a stalemate)
>Expanding slavery to new territories >just and righteous Ah, classic 'muricans.
Anglo-French Blockade of the Rio de la Plata en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anglo-French_blockade_of_the_Río_de_la_Plata >A rare case of British and Frogs teaming up in the mid 19th century to force Argentina to allow free navigation of its internal rivers to any foreign power, were repelled by based Rosas in the Battle of Vuelta de Obligado. Argentine sovereignity over its internal rivers and territorial integrity was acknowledged.
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paraguayan_War >Isolationist and militarist Paraguay, run by dictator Solano Lopez, tries to interfere in Uruguayan affairs, triggering a war with Uruguay and Brazil. In the middle of this, he asks Argentina to allow its troops to cross its territory to invade Uruguay. Argentina, being neutral, rightly refuses. Paraguay proceeds to declare war on Argentina too, invades Corrientes province, gets its shit pushed in by the three rivals.
tfw every war we fought was fair except for the Falklands. Most people always remember that one and don't know about the others.
Just squashed by them and driven like cattle by them, while never quite being unanimous enough to get into a position where you can shake off the yoke. Any other people and it would be considered a national liberation war, but Greeks have these masochistic first world pretenses and a startling knack for contrarianism.
>Glyndwr revolt >Owain Gwynedd's wars against Henry III >Llywelyn ap Gruffudd's war against Edward I >purge the Vikings from Wales and help England remove them >try to help England against the Normans All of our non-civil wars have been just because they were defensive.

>US liberates Texas from the Mexican Imperialists and unilaterally pushes its disputed border to the Rio Grande and build forts there to spark a war they know they'll win >Pays for the occupied Mexican land when the war ends to soothe their conscience and not seem quite so bad also deports the Mexicans living on that land because they don't want a Texas to happen to them
All of the wars involving foreign state actors have been defensive wars.
>Difference in modern day human rights between North and South clearly show who was just The South of that day engaged in just as many shennanigans as the North of that day.
>US liberates Texas from the Mexican Imperialists I don't think even that part was right, pretty sure Mexico in 1846 was a republic again.
USA troops literally went into Mexican side of the border, killed some Mexican soldiers and then pretended it was Mexican aggression on US soil. A fucking false flag to justify war.
Pretty sure Mexico ambushed them is the traditional narrative. Still had no business building forts on disputed land and acting like it's a huge surprise when the people you have the dispute with come and try to push you off of it.
That right there is basically the whole of the Indian wars and it's not like they act like they were being heroic and righteously upright noble men of honor regarding that whole thing. Well some do but they're the kind that would defend literally every historical event no matter how black a stain it left.
>America >false flag >justify >war Don't be silly user.
I believe the Charles was scrapped for wood during the winter. A glorious way to go.
>Slavery >Wrong Debate why that's so.
It is inefficient, it promotes cruelty and degeneracy and society benefits the most when individuals are able to freely pursue their 'dreams' instead of being forced to do menial work (i.e. laissez faire).
Sorry, but no war fought to put a king on a throne is just. Especially true when the U.S.A. does this. The Arabian Peninsula would be a better, more peaceful place today if Kuwait was part of Iraq.
Also, slavery discourages literacy. Traditionally, all slavery based societies made it illegal for slaves to be taught to read, and usually numerate as well. Some exceptions of course.
>US liberates the oppressed Texas peoples from the Mexican Imperialists except for the black ones though, right?
do it again you oz shitlords
user, you seem to have some heartburn with gentle Turkey, how can we help you see the beauty in these delicate flowers?
Mexicans are invading the US as you post, user.
Blacks aren’t people user

At the same time >use their global media to talk shit about us and create shit stereotypes >made us their slave labor with nafta >blame us for nafta as if it was a bad thing for them even though they gained over 4.2 million jobs because of it; obtained cheap things, while making our gdp per capita stagnate and destroyed our agriculture with their subsidized corn >export their shit food culture and sugar infested garbage here
When around Mexicans, lies are what you should be expexicans.
"Send 4 more legions to the that tiny eastern kingdom? I guess so. Annnnnnd they're gone."
These are another reasons on why Argentina is a shit country
Spain Every war.
Don't attribute to malice what can easily be explained by ignorance. Then again you're /pol/ so you think everyone that isn't white is out to hijack your narrative.
IIRC correctly the first time was the pastry war and the US had little involvement. Though that poster would still be wrong because also IIRC that conflict was not a full blown invasion.
No they're not. At least not the ones that are armed and would violently resist any attempt at stopping them. You misidentify the current mass migration pattern as a foreign invasion because you're either a psychopath or a bigot. Or both. Either way go back to /pol/ please.
Yes, Mexicans are invading the USA, retard, and the corrupt Mexican government encourages them to do so. And those supporting this invasion are armed, as you should know. The invaders make up upwards of 1/4 of the US prison population, and for crimes unrelated to their illegal invasion. Fuck off, retard.
