Either way, it's fascinating.

The US propaganda machine is fear mongering heavily on this one, not sure why yet, but they're out in full force with the uncle sam bs.

Agreed. Personally, I think it is ridiculous and unnecessary flame-fanning to treat their blowhard threats as serious. Most likely, this posturing is a way for Kim Junior to solidify his own position by rallying everyone around an enemy that isn’t him. By moving fighters and bombers to South Korea, positioning warships off the coast, etc. we are merely playing right into those plans.
Moreover, North Korea’s claims are not entirely without merit. They’re saying that the United States is targeting them and could attack. Yeah, the United States never gins up reasons to go to war… except maybe for Panama, Grenada, Iraq, and Libya, to name a just a few.
In addition to your list: The Spainish-American War 1898, The Mexican-American War 1846, Wounded Knee 1890, The overthrow of Hawaii 1893, Russia 1918, El Salvador 1981, Lebanon 1982 would all be included in my historic scope of "ginning up" reasons for conflict.

Quite true. But oddly enough, our politicians and history books never say that we started that war for selfish reasons. The U.S. likes to pretend that its own crap doesn’t stink. Also, we theoretically have a Constitution that prohibits us entering into a war without a declaration that only Congress can make. But that part of the Constitution seems to be one of the parts that certain people have “evolved” out of existence.

It is because you covet something, be it land or power. I get tired of how terrible the US is or how militaristic it is. It is no more militaristic than any other world power in history. Wah wah wah.
That said, I would much prefer if we didn't involve ourselves in another war in my lifetime.
