Get over it. There was a war more than 50 years ago. It was captured, and then annexed. Thatís how borders have been drawn throughout history!
I always wondered why Japan is part of the US.  :)
I just found a new supply of forks!

you mean Hawaii where we marched in, deposed the king and took over because we decided we needed a great vacation spot strategic base in the Pacific?

Just because things turned out a certain way doesn't mean you were right.

no I got it. I assume you were being sarcastic. My response is that the US (and all other countries) seem to pick and choose when a display of moral superiority is appropriate and when it is just inconvenient

I wouldn't call returning land after being attacked moral superiority. Maybe stupidity

FTFY

The Golan Heights were annexed (in the early 80s IINM) because there was virtual unanimous agreement that it is a vital strategic asset for security.

Parts of Jerusalem captured from the Jordanians (which BTW later on relinquished all claims) for both political and security reasons.

That hasn't happened with other territories captured in 1967 (from whom?) because there isn't unanimous agreement (mostly due to population concerns, rather than territorial concerns) on whether it's more secure to annex and keep indefinitely, or relinquish and disengage.
