 @kneubuhl “Unprecedented exploitation”: Depends whether you think the extra sea is better under the rule of the USA or under international maritime laws.

I am very, very critical of the formation of the USA, including the Louisiana purchase, the annexation of Texas, the Spanish–American War, the Alaska purchase, the Manifest Destiny and so on. I’ll refrain from commenting on those because I don’t want to start a flame war. I’ll just say that the statement “each one has proven to be vital to the success of our nation” behooves proof that the USA would not be successful if it had remained the size of the Thirteen Colonies. Seems like a lot of room already to me.
