War based on lies.
It took me a while to come around to the kind of thinking I've acquired now, a thinking cap that places me on both sides of the fence. The fact is a
foreign policy of intervention is never a good thing, it didn't work when Britain had an empire and it'll never work for the US today. Not in the
method that's been applied for the last 16 years.
These nations have governments that shouldn't be answering to you, people that should be deciding the power dynamics that rule their land themselves.
With the casualties and deaths that have accumulated by US and allies hands it's no wonder really why so many may hate the west. I can't blame them.
Education is always key and when you've got little of it and an American bomb or bullet killed your family members and people of your community...
Vengeance becomes easy.
Kill the savages but whilst at it bring hope, civility and humanity whilst you do it. Because circumstance could place any of us a few steps from the
lunatic asylum, it shouldn't be so hard to see why so many terrorists exist. I'm not just talking of the Middle East either but that's the problem the
West has now... The conspiracist in me says it's a war many love, for the love of money but who's the winning average chap?
I've seen non.
I agree, we pulled out too soon. But we went with the wrong approach too, it took a few years of bad craic till we started actually working hard on
the issues the populace of the lands we occupied faced.
Too little too late.
