Times the U.S. stabbed its allies in the back – America is one of the most successful military powers in history. But why? What makes them such a massive superpower? As a Russian Soviet once said, “One of the serious problems in planning against American doctrine is that the Americans do not read their manuals nor do they feel any obligation to follow their doctrine.” During World War 2, A German General said,

“The reason the American army does do well during wartime, is that war is chaos, and the American army practices chaos on a daily basis.” And finally, a member of the United States Military was quoted as saying, “If we don’t know what we are doing, the enemy certainly can’t anticipate our future actions!” It’s clear that being unpredictable and erratic is a huge and integral part of American military tactics.
What’s even clearer to see, once you look at the history of the U.S. military, is that those unpredictable tactics extend to the nature of their alliances. You might be allied with the United States one day and find yourself being bombed by them the next. This trend stretches from their first war of independence up to the present day conflicts in the Middle East. Individual people and entire nations have been double-crossed, betrayed, and stabbed in the back so many times that it can hardly be called a coincidence anymore. With this long list of broken alliances, it is blatantly obvious that betrayal is an established tactic of the United States.
From 1798 to 1800, the United States was officially allied with France. That didn’t stop them from doing all they could to sink their ships. This conflict was known as the “Quasi-War,” and it was a very strange war. Years earlier, France had helped the United States in their War of Independence from Britain. But France during the Quasi-War wasn’t the same France that had aided the States. This was because France had just overthrown their monarchy in their very own revolution. But instead of congratulating the French, they took this as an opportunity to stop paying their debts to France. France responded by seizing American trading ships, until they had seized over 300. At that point, the Americans revamped their Navy in order to oppose them, and it turned into a series of small battles which killed a few people and ended up with a few ships being destroyed. Eventually the U.S. and France came to a mutual understanding.
