Simon you were forced to admit about involving Americana in few of wars it indulged, out of thousands of wars,

1. Every war we conducted at the end we helped that country that we went to war with rebuild example Korea, Japan Europe in WW II and now Iraq and Afghanistan.

2. Every war we conducted the U.S never relinquished or confiscated any land from the other warring party.

Instead of replying the question it raises another question, that why at first place Americana indulges in wars in every corner of world, then starts an excercise of rebuilding.

The answer lies in following words of Stephen Kinzer, "Throughout the twentieth century and into the beginning of the twenty-first, the United States repeatedly used its military power, and that of its clandestine services, to overthrow governments that refused to protect American interests. Each time, it cloaked its intervention in the rhetoric of national security and liberation. In most cases, however, it acted mainly for economic reasons-specifically to establish, promote and defend the right of Americans to do business around the world without interference."

Mind it that it is newly designed Imperialism of Americana, to invade a country, get full control over it, then install a puppet government there, start rebuilding by getting all contracts to American firms through puppet government, and say to world from your roof top that we are rebuilding the country without physically occupying that country. THIS IS IMPERIALISM, after exposure of old style of occupying the countries directly now Americana had devised this style. Instead of saying more it is better to quote words of your own people what they say about your Imperialism, Robert Kaplan" The United States is evolving into an a corporate oligarchy that merely wears the trappings of a democracy." Mind it Uncle Simon none of above two are Muslims.

You said, "When the U.S is at war with Iran and Iraq went to war with Iran you have to back up your ally in this case it was Iraq at that time. By the way its not illegal for a country to posses chemical weapons as a deterrent but its illegal to use them against your own people."

It means you are an ally of a friend only uptill the time he serves your purpose,when his time is over he is dumped. Secondly it is valid if chemical weapon is used for others "but its illegal to use them against your own people." How sweet Uncle Simon, but this is actually called Imperialism, opportunism, deciet etc.

You said that you have a Muslim lady friend, how heroic uncle Simon, enjoy Monica Lewinsky.
