I had forgotten that Britain had condemned the invasion and it was never explained why at the time. Now I know.

Reagan was such a dolt. This is a case of wagging the dog if I have ever heard of one.

I knew some of this, but not near in this detail. Reagan, whom the GOP used to idolize before tRump, was an inept dotard, & allowed the neo-con building sycophants around him to run a corrupt & secretive shadow military. At times, such as in Grenada, he managed to push a flimsy narrative that both the GOP & the Dems were only to glad to swallow. We have been reaping this tale for years now, tho it goes back to at least Wilson. I do think that most Americans stand by the values that we were taught, even if those values don't jibe with reality, which is why so much of this is done in shadow.

Yes I remembered well! Another walk of shame for the US aggressive posture in the world!

Damn that's some terrible stuff there. I was a kid during those times and in 83 I turned 19 but had no knowledge of the crap that was going on over there.I didn't observe politics until the 90's and didn't really know enough about them then to really pay attention.It wasn't until Bush Jr. was give the presidency that it started really mattering to me. I'm glad the young today are not as ignorant as I was back then.

That's a sad but informative piece. Why the US keeps involving itself in these meaningless military debacles is beyond me.

Power, Prestige, and plundering would be my guess.
