The U.S. should go back to the old days of warfare. When a country fought another country, the winner annexed the loser’s country. When we decide a country is threatening us or our interests enough that we are willing to go 100 percent and totally defeat the country, then we should take it over and claim it as our own. Sure, we would own Cuba, the Philippines, Japan by now, as well as Iraq and some of Germany and maybe more – they would be our states 51-55. But we would take it seriously. To strike and give back makes no sense.
