Thats true, I never said a thing about our government caring about anyone. If America truly was seeking democratic allies in the region, they would
divide Kurdistan away from the rest of Iraq, allow it to become a independent nation and protect it. However because the oil fields would be divided
thus harder to get to especially from a land locked state, we have no desire to help anyone.
The issue of Kurdistan should honestly affirm to anyone who has doubts that our government went to war for its own interest, had no plans to liberate
anyone and had no plans to install peace and stability. However, the troops on the ground think they went to war to liberate, and for national
security reasons, or else they have no idea why they are there.. which I honestly have NO clue on the actual intentions our government is moving this
war around upon.. The war is new in its kind.. it follows no orderly pattern, no goals, no reason to start it, no reason to finish it, the economy is
so messed up and backwards its not even funny. Though that is the only thing I can see we even went to war.. was to keep our economy artificially up
in appearance or to give the illusion all is fine while the working class, especially blue collar workers, are getting hammered economically. We have
saving debts unseen since the great depression, inflation rising faster then normal, low unemployment but low paying jobs, triple digit percentage
increases for corporate profits and single digit increases for worker pay.
I would say we went to war because we needed to stop the rise of the European market, hence the mass hostility we received from nations like Germany,
France, Spain, Italy... but who didn't object? .. Why, it was the ONLY nation that DOES NOT use the Euro.. but instead the Pound, another rival to
the Euro. While the Euro was increasing in strength and Saddam switched to using Euros and not Dollars inflicting potential damage to our monetary
system we went to war and reset the status quo. If oil where to be sold in the Euro and not the Dollar then we would have nothing left to sell..
because we don't produce much in this country, we consume, what we can sell is our currency, and for our currency we get benefits and resources. If
every one needs our Dollar then we are on top, and we can continue buying cheap plastic Chinese crap.. but if our Dollar is not needed and every one
switches it to another currency we have TO MUCH Dollars floating around, which would cause a mass spike in inflation, making the dollar weak so that
it can no longer continue its competitive ability against other currencies.
But there can be good sides to war, the Kurdish cause in my opinion is a great outcome, a people liberated. You could also say going to war to keep
the economy working is as well, but that is just a hypothesis and not theory, because of the shadowy workings of the government its just to hard to
say why we went there. But you right, I would say the war was to keep economic benefits from reaching the hands of European Union members.
