Asking for a technical term is opinion-based

How do you call use of military power all over the world to make your country great? [on hold]

What is a technical term for using military power abroad, subduing other nations, to make your nation great? Please bring me at least one historical example.
The purpose of my question is to make people think a little and tell me what is happening in the world.

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit your question.
   
The term you're looking for is "imperialism". – Bregalad 2 hours ago
   
@Bregalad It is weird that you give me objective term that I asked and, at the same time, say that it is subjective and not answerable. – valentin 1 hour ago   
   
In the context of this website your question is opinion based which isn't what this site is about, as I would take it as a rant which I could only assume to be about US or Donald Trump. It is indeed answerable but in regards to the term you ask for, but not for the historical example. As that would be one person's opinion against another whether it fits the context of what you are asking. – Bradley Wilson 1 hour ago 
   
Please be more specific. What is a problem with assuming US or D. Trump, what is the problem with having historical examples? What has it to do with persons? Just say that this question would be legitimate if imperialism would not be the current US policy. Do not try to hide your ideas behind verbiage. – valentin 1 hour ago   
   
At best I'd say that this question is off topic here. if you really are after only the term to be used, you should ask on english.se. – Federico 1 hour ago
   
These are not my ideas, I didn't vote to close. This website is a forum for questions to be asked in a way where you have to atleast done some research into the topic you are querying about, that can be answered with verifiable facts in a partial setting which is more specific to government processes and policies. Asking about imperialism is more of a question for History.SE, if you are looking for examples. – Bradley Wilson 1 hour ago 
   
@Federico Why should I try opinion-based question at another site? Who says that single term questions are off-topic here and on-topic there? Might be it is vice-versa. – valentin 1 hour ago

because there single term questions are on topic, they even have a tag for them: english.stackexchange.com/questions/tagged/single-word-reque‌ sts But ONLY if you are after the term. – Federico 1 hour ago 
   
@BradleyWilson My primary question is a political term, not historical example. My question applies to the current state of affairs, not just history, as you have spotted yourself. – valentin 1 hour ago   
   
Because I said the term can be answered doesn't mean its on topic here, I would follow federico's advice if thats the case. I spotted a rant in which i made my assumption clear. It still doesn't make it on topic as is. – Bradley Wilson 1 hour ago 
   
@Federico But terminology tag here does not say that single-word terms are banned here. Who says that it is unreasonable to ask for political term in the political forum? – valentin 1 hour ago

@valentin Personally I voted because it's off topic, even if it says "opinion based", that's just because the majority of voters choose that (why, I have no idea, I don't think it's opinion based). I think the question could be on topic on English SE as Frederico advised, definitely not on History SE though. – Bregalad 11 mins ago

How can Trump struggle against fake news and, at the same time, launch missles based on them

Donald Trump has attacked Syria impulsively, based on Ivanka watched news. Why such double standards. He tells about fake news in western media all the time when they portray him as terrible guy but trusts them wholeheartly when some another guy is portrayed as evil. Why does Assad uses chemical weapons against its civilians and never against the ISIS? Is he crazy? Only anti-Assad jihadi groups were interested in the chemical attacks. Assad gains nothing but looses everything using chemical weapons. Nevertheless, this simple idea never visits the head even those people who notice how flawed western media is. How is that possible? Why violate the international law, in classical imperialist style, and be afraid of investigation? How can you repeatedly say that media lies and be its brainless puppet at the same time?
tag: double standards

This is more a rant than an actual question. And if you don't like the site (I did read the profile) you are free to not visit it. – SJuan76 1 hour ago 
  
Well, looks like you might get banned again........ – Noah 1 hour ago
  
@valentin You pose multiple questions and you already answer these in your text. Please consider to rewrite your question into a more neutral form and move your answer into the section below. – velop 52 mins ago

What is LED switching power supply?

What is LED switching power supply? [on hold]

I was looking for 12v 30a switching power supplies (220ac to 12v DC converters) and both eBay and AliExpress bring me some LED Power Drivers, which are sometimes called "Switching power supply for Led Strip light"
enter image description here
What are they?
How are they different from ordinary 12v voltage sources
enter image description here
?
Can I buy and use such LED driver as an ordinary 12v power supply?
