List of countries USA has bombed since 1945

  • Liaison TripleA '11 '10

    I was thinking about this the other day… and started making a list of countries the USA has bombed since 1945. Note that this list does not include the following military invasions, interventions, occupations, or assassinations.

    The list is also incomplete, and if anyone can help me add in the missing countries, please do so! 😛

    Afghanistan

    Belgian Congo

    Bosnia

    Cambodia

    China

    Cuba

    Dominican Republic

    El Salvador

    Guatemala

    Grenada

    Indonesia

    Iran

    Iraq

    Korea

    Kuwait

    Laos

    Lebanon

    Libya

    Nicaragua

    Pakistan

    Panama

    Peru

    Somalia

    Sudan

    Syria

    Vietnam

    Yugoslavia – Serbia

    A few countries I suspect might qualify but I haven’t yet research include:

    • Morocco, Jordan, South Africa, Angola, Egypt, Argentina, Columbia, Chile, Russia/Georgia, New Guinea, Canada (bomb testing! :P), Israel (In defense of the nation).

    Thoughts on accuracy? Comments?

    That is a hell of a list Garg.
    I can’t help with it, as I have never been interested in Post War history.
    They have bombed China? Was that in the Korean War?

    He hates us Americans for having a military that can bomb so many places. Canada could never be so cool…  😛

    You clowns. 🙂

    It’s just a point of military history I found interesting. Just like when I discovered that the first bomb dropped by the Germans on Leningrad - killed the only elephant in the entire city.

    I’m not going anywhere with it, it’s just interesting information. 😛


  • How many countries has the UK bombed?  Russia?

    @BJCard:

    How many countries has the UK bombed?�  Russia?�

    Good question, UK and Russia both deserve their own lists.

    Russia
    -Afghanistan
    -Georgia
    -Poland
    -Hungary
    -Korea

    UK
    -Argentina
    -Iraq
    -Afghanistan

    Surely there are more?


  • The UN was involved in Korea- surely the UK was there too?

    Watching this like a hawk. But carry on.

    For Russia, I think it would be more honest to include the regimes they supplied weapons to as well. You could do the same to the US-supported regimes.

    Well, if you are going to that far than you could expand the list to every country that has an arms industry…  and who they sell/give weapons to.  Here’s looking at you France, UK, India, Iran, China, etc.


  • Was Indonesia bombed by the US? Was that when they invaded New Guinea?

    This thread reminds me of a book i saw at Waterstones. I cant remember the name, but it was about all the countries ever invaded by the British. I believe it was about 180 countries!

  • '17

    I am surprised about Indonesia … never heard about this before.

    ––Here’s something for you to consider. Since the grounds of a nations foreign embassies are considered as sovereign territory of that nation,…I’ll add FRANCE to your list and explain why.

    ––President Ronald Reagan ordered an airstrike from England against Colonel Quadafi’s Libya. France refused the requested overflight of it’s territory(France) by F-111s on the way to strike Libya making it an extremely long flight around France. One of the laser guided missiles with pin-point accuracy “accidently” impacted the French Embassy building in Libya. A friendly associate of mine was(is) a big wheel at Texas Instruments computers and had an “advisory” position with the Armed services. After the strike when we mentioned to him that one of the missiles had missed it’s target, he responded,…“We hit everything we AIMED for!” We knew better than to ask for any further info as he said he couldn’t say any more about it.

    If I’m not mistaken, the U.S. supplied air support to french troops in Vietnam when it was still French.

    They almost provided nuclear support too under the name operation Condor.

    In regards to the validation of this thread…

    Taliban? Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Iran. Also, US and coalition-led troops when we (speaking of the US) were in Afghanistan hunting Osama Bin Laden.

    They bombed IN:

    Spain
    France
    UK
    Italy
    US
    Russia
    and pretty much most every African and Middle-eastern nation

    Someone was watching Battle Royal 2 weren’t they  😉

    I agree with BJCard, I think some people confuse Taliban with Al Qaeda,  although I would not include Hamas, their activity is pretty much limited to Israel, although some Egyptian security forces have been killed by smugglers with probable Hamas connections in that little border skirmish last year.  I think it was GG who mentioned the three the Taliban has bombed, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iran.  If other countries have been bombed by the Taliban its news to me and I would require citation of this in order to believe the accuracy of those other claims.

    Garg, at least Canada had a part in those bombing missions, I am sure we made some components to those weapon systems.  My buddy machines parts for hellfire missiles and another machines parts for landing gear.  Talk about vicarious glory……

  • Liaison TripleA '11 '10

    Canada builds the bombs, then the Americans deliver.

    I thought everyone knew that? 😉
