    I have books, but no links... if you're interested check out Rogue State and Killing Hope, both by William Blum. Rogue State is much more readable, whereas Killing Hope (i have yet to read) is much more indepth, but serves more as a reference book of sorts. There are most certainly others out there. There have been easily more than 75 military interventions since WWII, most of which not covered by any textbooks or media. Overall Rogue State is an excellent book (if you can find it) and it covers much more than just U.S. military actions. I highly recommend it.

    Changed the title so it'd be a little more encompassing. :)

    Laos, Cambodia, Grenada, and Cuba if you want to count the naval "quarantine" in '62.

    Listen to the Bleubird song "We 'da Bomb!"

    It includes "Somewhat of a dated list of the 24 countries that the United States, my county tis-of-thee, has bombed since WWII"

    (Japan, if you want to count that)
    China, 1950 (accidental)
    Korea
    Guatamale 1954
    Indonesia 1958
    Cuba 1961 Bay of Pigs
    Congo 1964
    Dominican Republic 1965
    Veitnam, Laos, Cambodia-'65-'75
    Nicaragua 1981
    Grenada 1983
    El Salvador 1984-85
    Lebanon 1984
    Lybia 1986
    Panama 1989
    Iraq 1991-99
    Peru 1992
    Bosnia 1993
    Sudan, Afganistan 1998
    Yugoslavia (Kosovo) 1999
    Puerto Rico 2000 (millitary taining killed civillians while testing bombs and napalm)
    Afganistan, 2001-Present
    Operation Iraqi Freedom

    He misses Somalia in 1995 and our intervention in Georgia, as well as involvements in wars in Afganistan and Iran/Iraq (but those two were more clandestine and not technically "millitary"). I believe that is all, unless you want to count the monkey business in West Africa and Uganda, and assasinations and the proping up of dictatorships in Haiti, Venezuela, Chille, and Argentina, or the War on Drugs, most notably against Colombian Guerillas.
