US government has bombed a different country roughly every 3 years since 1963

A recent report shows that the US government has bombed a different nation at least once every 40 months since 1963.

The following list was compiled by Paul Waldman of the American Prospect:

  • 1964 - 1975: Vietnam. You remember that one.
  • 1965-1973: Cambodia. We dropped more bombs on the tiny country than had been used in all of World War II.
  • 1965: Dominican Republic. President Johnson sent 22,000 troops to prevent communists from taking over.
  • 1983: Grenada. In the comically named Operation Urgent Fury, we invaded the tiny island nation to stop the commies.
