The United States has spent 222 of its 243 years of existence in war.

The USA, a country created in 1776, has spent 93 % of its existence, i.e. 222 years, involved in wars and conflicts in different countries of the world.

Despite its long history of war crimes, crimes against humanity and human rights violations, Washington does not hesitate to include others on its terrorist list, as it did recently with Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).

The recent military interventions in Iraq, Syria, Libya and Afghanistan under the pretext of liberating the peoples of those countries and restoring democracy have only worsened the situation and paved the way for the emergence of terrorist groups such as ISIS.
