We wanted to pay less taxes, so we killed 24,000 British soldiers.
We wanted even more land, so we killed another 20 million or so American Indians.
We wanted Texas, so we killed 60,000 Mexicans.
We didn’t want states to secede from the union (also to end slavery), so we killed 500,000 Americans.
We decided we wanted a new military base (and a nice vacation spot) so we overthrew the Hawaiian King.
We didn’t want communism to spred, so we killed 2,000,000 Koreans.
We didn’t like the ruler of Cuba, so we tried to have him assassinated, repeatedly.
We still didn’t want communism to spread, so we killed 2,000,000 Vietnamese.
We wanted to pay less for oil, so we killed 150,000 Iraqis.
We’ve always gotten what we wanted via violence and killing. So why are we drawing the line at social justice?
