G.I Joe was about an army that would fight a group of bad guys that were called Cobra. It was the typical children show, Good vs. Evil. G.I. Joe is a highly secret, special mission force formed to fight the evils of the Cobra Organization. Formed by General Tomahawk and led by Duke, the G.I.

openness in trade, how would we tally their conflicts? Again, in the case of the United States, this is particularly problematic. Despite the active roles it has played in Korea, Vietnam, Grenada, and Kosovo, the United States has not officially declared war since entering W.W.II.
