Probably. There's probably quite a bit of debate over how many of them are 'wars', also. And I'm always up and open for respectful debates.

The overall point, though, is that there was an implication that our military is ineffective except when nuclear weapons have been used. 240(ish) years of history with only one conflict where they WERE used would beg to differ.
