The question probably stems back to Wilsonian involvement in foreign affairs, meaning that Woodrow Wilson had a non-aggressive policy. He wanted there to be a war of no winner…s. Partly because if there were no winners there would be no conflicts later on. Secondly as time went on and economics were dropping shamefully there was no way to fight a costly battle during World War II. Prior to this Roosevelt and the other cabinet leaders didn't overly worry about Hitler breaking the treaty of Versailles. Partly because most leaders believed it to be unfair. That is why there were prepartions made to send over Young, the pres of GE at the time, to create a plan to reduce the principle and interest for Germany. Which would allow Germany to internally rebuild its economy and open up different trading lines, hopefully with the U.S. The U.S. didn't believe that Hitler would become so powerful a leader. Even with remilitarizing the rhineland and retaking the Sudatenland no one was worried. Sudatenland is what is now Checkoz. As Kennedy said prior to WWII, who really cares if check. is regained by Germany no one wants to defend it anyway. The only thing that would keep the U.S. involved is the lend-lease act which would allow the president to lend war supplies, i.e. foodstuffs and what not to parties involved mainly Britain and France.

Commerical radio and Television saterlites are also a driving force in "space" science. See also "why Apollo 11 went to the moon" asked in wikianswers.
The United States is not at war with any country. The United States is at war with terrorism in the Middle East. The US has not declared war on any nation since World War II. …Currently, the US is only involved in the War in Afghanistan, but is not a total beligerent. The War in Afghanistan is currently being fought between Afghanistan and terrorist groups such as al-Qaeda and the Taliban. The US is merely supporting Afghanistan by supplying troops, supplies, and overseeing the government, just as the UK is. The same issue was present in the Iraqi War. The US was not at war with Iraq, they were supporting Iraq.
No. The United States is a North American country.
