Im curious as to why we do it. Not ideology but more personal. We all say to support our mates but why do we do it? Recent history shows us we are pissing against the wall. WW2 was to prevent us becoming box heads, ok more to it than that but that really was a war of national survival and identity, an exception to the rule if you will. Korea, to be fair to MacArthur, we could have put china back in its place and prevented N Korea ever being more than the box case it is in an afternoon with a few nukes as he proposed. More recently Iraq, although all weve done is boost the lunatics in Tehran and sullied our reputation but failed to stand up to these bandits, remember the Navy thing. Theyre laughing at us. Afghanistan, who cares, its a nothing country with nothing to offer, ever! Is the world going to be a better place if it even remotely becomes democratic, which it wont. Drop kick the corrupt shithole and move on. It will just be a drain on the international community, like Iraq. They had a chance and blew it, lets move on.
